Of course, pleks only scored 70 points once, and 69 another time, but still.

Not saying it's likely, but Eller shows far more promise than pleks did at the same age, with comparable defensive prowess. Eller also seems to have that same great attitude and work ethic.

Seems people can only really gripe about him and his finish. If you guys don't think in 5-6 years when he hits his prime he won't have improved his finishing by a significant margin, well, ok then.
