    Definitely! This next off-season he needs to be bulking up and learning English

    The thing that impresses me the most about him is his defenisive awareness. He looks super effective and sharp to be a rookie. He really has intuition and TALENT for defense, not just raw material. How he moves, how he reads the offensive player and anticipates to the move and the shot, how well he uses his length.... He's gonna be a terrific defender.

    ****, he's very exciting to watch. What a steal.

    In all fairness, @OTMax said Zhou "can shoot threes" -- he said nothing about making them. :D

    Has Zhou Qi played more minutes than KJ McDaniels ever did at this point? :p

    Haha true, but he actually can make them. I mean one almost went in and he just started throwing them up like we were trying to get a new record :)

    I used to think he would be just a shot blocker, but his overall defense will be valuable once he gets stronger.

    Zhou might make take the cake for most youtube highlight videos for someone who scores less than 4 points.

    It's hard not to get at least a little excited by the potential. He's over 7 feet tall, young, and not totally lost on defense. If all he ever develops into is a shot-blocker and team defender who's smart enough to pass out of the paint to the right guy while on offense, that's something we could really use. Anything more than that is gravy.

    This video was pretty damned cool. And Qi may or may not ever be more than a rotation player but rooting against a Rocket with the venom and hate that Tin-man displays is more than ignorance, it's downright pathetic.

    Interesting to see he and Capela getting minutes together.

    That’s a really long, athletic front court to think about if you’re planning on driving the ball to the rim.

    The most impressive thing about him right now is the ability to move his feet and stay in front of attackers starting at the 3 point line. I think most guys relish the opportunity to shake 7’ defender. Having 2 bigs who could switch out to the ball, that could really make pick and rolls and drives a hard thing to accomplish.

    LOL

    I like Zhou, I just hate that he doesn't make any buckets.

    Maybe you like to watch Rockets players go 0-5 from the 3 point line, I don't.
