Mitch McGary turns 21 today

He’s obviously old. Older than Cody Zeller, for example.

Zak Irvin is also old for his grade. His birthday is Sept. 5th, 1994 compared to sophomore Caris LeVert on August 25, 1994. Irvin’s old HS teammate, Gary Harris, was born on September 14, 1994.

Spike Albrecht (August 24th, 1992) will turn 21 this summer as well.

I was 21 when I graduated from U-M. [I turned 22 later that year.]

I guess Mitch has officially outgrown “Big Puppy”.

Honestly, that’s kind of why I was shocked that he came back. He’s basically the age of a college junior, so I thought with his tournament performance and buzz in NBA circles that he had potentially played his way into the lottery, and possibly the top 10 with strong combine/interview performances, he’d be gone for sure.
