    this is worrysome...it was very encouraging to see him nailing his FTs this season....i heard today or it was yesterday that lucas has worked with him on his 3pt shot again...that might be it...

    to be fair either learning curve is being affected by trying to introduce a new skill, so he regresses a bit until there is a work in progress in the nervous system, or Lucas is really terrible at teaching 3pt shooting...

    really in the last ten years or however much he was on the rockets it seems nobody ever improved his 3pt shooting....

    Nah man. There’s been times where we had disagreements. I just respect Rocket fans, not player only fans

    C’mon…. There have been 2 and Maj21 seems likely to be a third.

    He doesn’t need it to be a fine player, but I am craving a Sengun that hits 35%+ from three, and 80+ from the line. Pick and pops would give JG so much room to operate.

    I've seen your post and all of them are baseless bashing of Sengun and getting consistently proven to be wrong. And I've been here just as long. DMo's stats and gameplay don't enough come close to Sengun at all. Sengun is clearly superior.

    Try again.

    Dude isn’t worth talking to. It’s very clear he’s mad there’s a Caucasian that people like and is doing good. Don’t waste your time on those types of people

    Sorry buddy but not everything is about you, @rocketchamp and @maj21 are most likely the same person.

    Fair point. How come y’all don’t defend KPJ, JG, and Jabari when people bash them? Guys like @AroundTheWorld and @King1 be calling KPJ a bum and a loser all the time? Why don’t y’all have the same energy then? Not trying to argue, I’m just curious. It’s like Sengun is the only player that people aren’t allowed to bash

    Like I’ve told you before, I do defend them. KPJ not as much as the others. I don’t put them down either.
    No one is above criticism, but Alp and KPJ get unfair criticism imo. Specially Alp.

    You’re good about that, that’s true. KPJ gets **** on 24/7, even when he’s out! Sengun is loved and praised by most. I just don’t see people defending the other players and it doesn’t seem fair.

    I agree to an extent, but you’re blind if you don’t see the weird hate Alp gets too.
    Either way, it’s not right to bash our young players to prop up your favorite. No matter who it is.
    KPJ gets hate, some warranted, a lot not so much. That’s on Silas though, he’s trying to make him something he’s not.

    Some of it isn’t necessarily hate, it’s just some don’t believe in him bc he’s not a good defender at the most important position. That’s a legit concern, it’s not hate. We all give him credit for how good he is offensively. All of these guys have weaknesses that are concerning, it’s just Sengun fans don’t like hearing it

    That’s fair. The problem is the numbers don’t back it up, he gets hate for others bad defense. While he’s not a game changer defensively, he can be a decent key in a system where everyone buys in. There isn’t a center in the game, including Wemby that can anchor for this team
