In terms of public recognition, Harry Giles has fallen a long way. In high school, before his knee issues, Giles was seen as the top prospect in his class. He spent his year at Duke rehabbing and while he showed flashes he wasn’t the Harry Giles of old.
Sacramento shut him down for his rookie year and he only began to really play a lot this past year, beginning to remind people of his immense potential.
So it’s not really a surprise maybe that Anthony Davis would be playing NBA 2K and see Giles and have no idea who he is.
For Giles, that’s just motivation and it looks like he’s planning to use it.
