Shabazz Napier’s senior status and size are both major knocks against him as an NBA prospect, but that doesn’t seem to matter to one basketball superstar.
Former No. 1 pick LeBron James is watching tonight’s National Championship between UConn and Kentucky, and is really impressed with Napier, who is not projected to be a lottery pick by many draft experts.
No way u take another PG in the lottery before Napier.

Napier is generally ranked behind Marcus Smart, Tyler Ennis, and Australian prospect Dante Exum among the point guards who are likely to enter this year’s draft, but his performance this post-season is certainly turning some heads.
