While you will be forgiven if the lack of playing time Boston Celtics 2020 lottery pick had you worried earlier in the season, it’s hard not to notice how rookie small forward Aaron Nesmith isn’t just living up to his potential projected by experts as a lethal long-range sniper, but showing athleticism, passing and defensive chops not commonly expected of the Vanderbilt product.

But that doesn’t mean Nesmith doesn’t have his believers, including former college head coach and NBA star Jerry Stackhouse, who came on the CLNS Media podcast “The A-List” with Kwani A. Lunis and A. Sherrod Blakely hosting. They dive deep into the South Carolinian’s potential, and talk what he’s done so far in the present that supports it.

Stackhouse even goes so far as to say Nesmith will one day be an All-Star, but you’ll have to watch the video to see the reasons why.
