A Closer Look On 7-foot-2 Kai Sotto (VIDEO) The Next Kristaps Porzingis?

For those who may not have any idea on who Kai Sotto is, he’s a Filipino High School Prodigy with a unique combination of talent, height, and skill. That’s the best way I can summarize it for you guys. He’s coming off a career year in the UAAP Juniors division, the premier high school league in the Philippines, where he emerged as the MVP with averages of 25.1 points, 13.9 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 2.6 blocks.

Kai Sotto is one of the tallest and most talented Filipino players right now and everyone who has watched him play has said that he will have a great future if he just commits himself to his everyday training. I can’t predict that he’ll be a lottery pick in the 2020 draft but if everything works out, he’ll be the first full-blooded Filipino in the NBA for sure.

Sotto is not only special because of his immense height at such a young age, but he’s also blessed with agility, high basketball IQ, shooting touch, decent dribbling, and good passing skills. These are skills you wouldn’t expect to see in an Asian big man, much less someone from the Philippines. These are skills that you see in European Big Men who are doing really well in the NBA right now.
