    Zubac has potential to be 20 and 10 player. His free throw is 90%. If he is aggressive, he can outplay Capela.
    Some of his best games this season have come against the toughest opponents: He had 16 points and 11 rebounds against New Orleans Anthony Davis, and he also had a double-double against the Golden State Warriors. He has 26 points and 12 rebounds against Steve Adams in Oklahoma City. I knew it's too early, but he looks for real to me.

    Some Comparisons:
    Harden is a better player than LeBron.
    Aggressive Zubac vs Capela
    Rondo/Ingram vs Paul/Gordon (Rondo is underrated)
    Ball/Hart vs Rivers/Ennis
    Kuzma vs Tuckers

    Both teams would like to be #3, 6, 7 seeds.
    I don't see Nuggets and Thunder are good in the playoffs.

    Huh?

    ...I guess someone is trying to start the Zubac media narrative.

    Lakers are paying online sock puppets to inflate their players' value before the deadline.

    Lakers seem to have a deeper team than us, note you forgot Cadwell Pope. It all depends on how Gordon, Capela after injury, and most of all CP3 play the rest of the season and playoffs. There are major gaps in our rotation and defense. We don’t have 3 defenders who can currently who can guard lengthier Lebron, Kuzma, and Ingram on the same court.

    Lakers will be 8 or (4-5) seed. So we won’t play them unless they beat warriors

    We will be in the 2-3-6-7 bracket

    Capela outplayed Karl Anthony Towns and Rudy Gobert last year in the playoffs. The Rockets should really be worried about him if he gets a potential matchup with some guy named Zubac who has started all of 7 games this season and averaged 8 points and 4.6 rebounds
