As the NBA Combine kicked off in Chicago, some of the top prospects in this year's draft class were on hand to tackle the national media for the first time. And, as one would expect, there were large crowds surrounding Ja Morant and Cam Reddish.
Morant is the top point guard in the Draft, and reports have stated that the Grizzlies will take him with the No. 2 overall pick come June 20. As for Reddish, he could go anywhere from No. 3 to the Knicks to No. 6 in the Suns depending on how high he ranks on teams' draft boards.
But both players believe they are ready to make a major impact on whatever franchise calls their name on Draft night.
"I think I'm ready," Morant told the large media crowd confidently. "Something I've been training for all my life. One of my goals, and now I'm in a position to accomplish that goal."
Reddish has always viewed himself as an NBA player, but it wasn't until his high school days that he started to see that potential come to fruition.
"It took me awhile," Reddish said. "I kinda had it in my head. There was never a day I didn't think I was going to the NBA. It's just a natural thing. It took me till high school to realize I had the potential to be an NBA player."
