    I don’t know but he DID improve.

    The team was supposed to be a bad team.

    Im not for or against Silas but how can you judge him when the team was supposed to lose?

    He clearly is a good developmental coach and too say otherwise would be ignorant.

    Is he a good NBA coach in terms of winning? We’ll find out in the next 12-24 months.

    Its good that he isnt a ego driven player I agree. My thought is that eventually in a pressure packed playoff series Jabari will have to be able to take over when Jalen is either locked down, hurt or just off for the night. Thats they type of player you are shooting for with a top 5 pick IMO. I see flashes of him being able to do that and I feel like in a couple of years when those crucial games get played he will be better prepared for that type of moment (I hope!).

    Sengun, Green, and Porter Jr. alone should be able to generate 14-18 assists per game. As a team we were below average in assists/game at 23.6 but I think Jabari's shooting could bump that to 25+ which would get us in the top 10 and increase everyone's assist #s across the board.

    Not guaranteed to lead to wins (I think it will) but it will sure as hell be beautiful basketball to watch.

    The issue with Christopher is he's a SG, not a PG. He's looking to score literally every time he touches the ball. It doesn't even occur to him that passing is an option.

    I'd like them to bench him so he gets out of the way of the other guys. It's their time to show what they can do and he does nothing to make anyone else better.

    I don't think Nix or Titty bring much either but they seem to share the ball a bit more

    His defense was highly disappointing last night. Hopefully just a one time thing, but did not look as advertised last night.

    If Jalen hasn't taught anybody anything yet, don't judge a rookie right out the gate. Hold off the emotions of expectation until the end of the season... NBA season, not summer league.

    Also, guys, Banchero and Chet we're taken ahead of Smith.... There's literally nothing to be upset about if both are better players.

    Uhhh those big rings are too much for the summer league IMO. Should have gotten some nice watches instead, that seems to be more fitting for a summer league title.

    They make rings for little league baseball now. No big deal.

    No judgement from me. I am still on board with Jabari. But athletically he did not look like he was in the same class as some of these other rookies we've seen. He's not much of a fluid mover. We'll see how tomorrow goes. Hopefully he gets better guard play.

    you also then need to hold off emotions and expectations for duration of their whole careers cause jalen green still could be a big bust...
    a mic drop!

    Teams are not going to be able to shut down both JG and KPJ. We also have one of the best offensive post players in the league. I don’t see a scenario where Jabari is going to be forced to be the man. His job now and in the future is to be one of the best defensive players in the league and a knock down shooter and that is plenty good enough for a top 3 pick. Think Chris Bosh. Would you be happy with him as a top 3 pick?
