This was what I was wondering. He was listed at 6'0 176, but those measurements would be the start of last season (he'd have been 16yrs 2months). By next June could he be 6'1-6'2 and 195-200?

As for the shot, it may not have the sauce that the Dion has, but in the highlight reel he shows he doesn't look for the big blast all the time either. He let a couple of snappers and wristers go from the point too. I think that's way more important than having a bomb. Ray Borque didn't have a bomb either, but he was deadly from the point.
