15-Year Old Emoni Bates is Already Being Compared to Michael Jordan & LeBron James

But plays like Kevin Durant. . .

This week, we’ve been seeing more highlights of Emoni Bates from Michigan. The 15-year-old high school sophomore is drawing eye-raising comparisons to Michael Jordan and LeBron James, and is being touted as the no. 1 overall pick for the 2022 NBA Draft when he’s 18.

Under league rules, the age limit will be lowered from 19 to 18 by the time he graduates from school, but Emoni is also attracting every university that wants a small-forward.

Below, you can take a look at his piece with Sports Illustrated, as well as highlight plays from his year, including a battle against Bronny James.
