    Our expectations are higher than they were Kyle Wiltjer?

    I think my comparison of him to Wiltjer might have been doing Kyle a disservice.

    So was Capela 3 years ago. Not saying Zhou will ever be as good as Clint, but he's a very raw player and needs a lot of time in the D League.

    CONS:
    Chee seems to have bad hands. Can that be corrected?
    He is not that strong. He needs to get some strength about him
    His shot is not falling. He rushes his shot and maybe some mechanics issues

    PROS:
    I like his defensive hustle and timing

    He is only missing shots because he’s working out and it’s affecting his shot!!’

    Rockets all time great victory cigar, Hakeem-esque shot blocking ability, Hasheem-esque everything else

    He will be viewed as the best rim protector in the NBA.

    At this point he's a team mascot. Got a long way to go.

    Except he’s not in the G league now
    Would be nice to see Troy Williams get some time since he was clearly the best player in the summer league and g league for the rockets

    Zhou looked bad even in the G league. Same problems, can't catch a pass easily. Weak as hell. Clint freaking dominated the D league.

    At this point he will be lucky to feature in 10 minutes PT at the end of the season.

    He's all over the place, needs to focus on a couple of things instead of trying to do 10 and failing at all of them.

    I like his defensive game, but he's going to have to figure out who he is. Either you're playing in the paint collecting rebounds and cleaning up, or spacing the floor and burying 3s. You can't have it both ways when you're coming into the big league.

    Why do you think the Rockets picked him up? He is a star in China... if a billion people follow him in the 3 minutes he played, he's worth a lot to the organization... even if he sucks right now.

    We all know why the rockets picked him up
    It’s the people who are lying to themselves and not trusting their eyes or the statistics that should question themselves

    No sh!t captain obvious. He's a damn rookie!!! and he's skinny!!! But if you get blocked 3 times by skinny Jeremy Lin, you are the worst player in the nba.
