I dont think he will ever pass Bont. Especially cause of the size advantage he has. Shai is a great player to watch but imo he's never gonna be the best player in the comp. Will be interesting to see how he goes the next couple of years when teams start to give him more attention and send tags to him.At 22 yrs of age, Shai has everything to take the mantle as the best player in the game in the next 2-3 yrs.
He has a combination of pace, power, agility, inside/outside game and that knack of not getting tackled when he looks gone i.e. Ablett/Judd. He has an ability to burst out of stoppage, rarely goes to ground and has the best side step in the game.
As good as Petracca and The Bont are I think he will go past them in the next few years. Obviously, with Dusty nearing 30 I am expecting his performance to decline over the next 2-3years.
