Birth year right. It’s usually how the rest of the world categorizes players.

Im more happy about Taine having a name I can pronounce. I dropped out of school in the fifth grade. But man o man, there are alot of crazy names on that list. I appreciate that more than Taine being ranked number 14.

My favorite name in the top 25 is Joshua Giddey (I’m assuming it’s pronounced Gid-day) from Australia.

UVA wanted Mohave at one time. I met him. I should say very interested in him. I cant remember if they offerred. But he really liked UVA. His aunt or Godmother is BEAUTIFUL.

Wiki page says we offered. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mojave_King

UVA contacted King and Josh Giddey after Williford saw them last July at the NBA Academy event in Atlatna. There were articles back then mentioning it. I think there was some real communication with Giddey for a while, not so much with King. Offers aren’t as much a thing with overseas guys. If you’re talking to them, they assume they’re being recruited. They don’t really get what goes on.

Mojave was in NY and shared his involvement with different schools and UVA was one of them. I did not get that from an article.Again, I do not remember if he said they offered. But yes, its a cool name.
