    I remember that Isaiah Mobley and Emoni Bates tearing up the Summer League, Summer League is not serious.

    Both earned little minutes in season.

    Redick should let Bronny start game 1 , get history outta the way, turn to LeBron and tell him STFU , and send him straight to Gleague for a 5 year deployment..

    I want to dislike the guy since he’s a Spur now but I think they made a good pick

    i saw that game he lost by 35 and shot 4-12 FG and was thinking if this kid was drafted #4 by HOU comin out with this debut… CF would be in massive uproar

    maybe he ends up a decent shooter, but the underwhelming athleticism does not match the draft hype

    Not looking great for Knecht. Still super early of course. As an older guy I figured he'd look more ready. Maybe with the real Lakers squad he'll look better and be more in the flow.

    If he is a shooter then he profits more playing alongside LBJ, AD, AR than 4th string scrubs.

    Donte Greene scored 40 and was never heard of again.

    Chris Paul is going to turn Stephon Castle into a beast.

    Who knows. But I'm betting he will do more than just play while he is there. Castle could not have come into a better situation than where he is now with CP3 as his mentor all season. Too bad the Rockets didn't think of Reed Sheppard enough to get him a mentor like that.

    He already trained with Reed. In the end, it was CP who wanted lessons in physics from Reed.

    Cooper Flagg looked real good today.. he looks NBA ready and although it was just one game, he looks better than any of the select team bigs already.

    Smooth stroke from the 3 and plays very smart while being that big and athletic.

    Watched Edey play. His game will translate. He does subtle things. There were guys trying to be mvp. He could've easily put up 30 vs Kessler. He's gonna be a load

    Fred is a sublime mentor for any young PG.

    Fred even knows how to play off ball, which CP3 has never quite figured out.

    FVV is a much better mentor than Cp3. FVV won a championship and knows what it takes to get it done. Starting out undrafted and working his way up to All Star status FVV is no stranger to grind and will help Reed Sheppard because they are both shorties who will play a supporting role.

    All Cp3 knows is how to do is play well in regular season and flop in the playoffs. He has a toxic attitude that eventually creates resentment Blake Griffin, Harden, Booker these guys eventually got tired of his nagging PHX actually traded him for spare parts and even GSW didnt bring him back after just 1 season.

    Cp3 values money over winning imagine taking 13M to play for the worst team in the West when you should be making vet min to play for a contender. He has very little in common with Stephon Castle Cp3 is undersized and a skill based pg while Stephon Castle is an athletic beast almost 6'6 with shoes with long ass arms and very little shooting and limited playmaking ability.

    Who are the guys who said Edey would be a bust? I said he will translate and I was correct lol.
