Michael Porter Jr. is one of the most talented prospects in this year's NBA Draft. He's also one of the most polarizing.

Porter Jr. was the No. 2 recruit in the 2017 class, but issues with his back and hip limited him to only a handful of games in college. His health is a major concern for teams.

Porter Jr.'s attitude and confidence in himself has also raised eyebrows and caused some to wonder how he'll fit in an NBA locker room.

Just check out some of these quotes.

Despite the potential attitude/cockiness issues, Porter Jr.'s talent would make him worth an early selection for most teams. It is his health that is the biggest concern. According to Jeff Goodman, at least one NBA team was told to stay away from Porter Jr. completely.

Porter Jr. is still a likely top-10 pick tomorrow, but where he will be picked remains a mystery.

He could be the type of player who will make or break a GM's career depending on how they turn out in the pros.

The 2018 NBA Draft begins tomorrow night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Coverage of the event will begin at 7 p.m. ET.
