    They'll probably be fine. Just give them some time, like 10% of the time you have given to KPJ.

    If KPJ weren't such a dumbass he would be killing it on this team with his catch and shoot 3s.

    We need Jalen and Bari to start moving off the ball and shooting better......the sooner the better.

    BTW - I am taking my son to his 21st BDay dinner all on Alpi Sengun.

    I have been betting consistently that he will score over 18ppg in the last like 4 games and he has hit that and better almost everytime....so thanks Alpi - this $500 will go towards a great steak dinner at Carve.....yum.

    I often watch opposing team announcers when we play and read their fans game threads.

    It's not a coincidence Sengun often gets mentioned as our best player with a Jokic lite ceiling.

    So are we going to talk about it? What's the deal with his crop circle back? Did he get abducted?

    Bro, your son is the same age as Alperen! :D

    Maybe let's all give Alperen and DD's son some time to develop!

    Lol. It’s cupping, treatment for soft tissue injuries. Can leave “hickies”
    Which means his shoulder was hurting after last game

    The unathletic ultra flexible Alperen Sengun ladies and gentlemen. He flexes back to create space and not getting blocked. He is probably the most flexible player in the nba. Or at least the one who utilizes it most. Can't jump high from standing position but uses the one-legged to flex back and create space. Very smart indeed.

    Alright. Haters claimed he wasn't clutch and he went straight to lebron 1 on 1 in last 10 secs the very next match.

    What's your next excuse to hate on him h&m basketball guy?

    He is far and away our most important offensive player right now and it's not close.

    Well, haters also claimed he won't finish games because his defense is bad, would be in foul trouble against centers like AD and udoka won't like him because he is a defense first coach. Haters are terrible at basketball.

    And not just he went straight to bron, Ime chose to play over him. And if it went to overtime, I am sure we'd try to feast on Sengun, now that AD was out.

    Seriously just STFU. We’d be 0-11 with KPJ getting any meaningful minutes.

    wrong if KPJ was still here he would ask for a different starting center and never play through Sengun cuz he's the head honcho. You can't make him change his attitude and play style. He was too dumb.

    I don't why you had to add offense. He's our most important player period. AD feasted in the third when he was on the bench.

    • 11 games in, 21 years old... 85 days younger than Chet.
    • 20.1 PPG, 8.4 RPG, 5.7 APG, 2.6 TOV
    • 23-10-7 per36... :confused:
    • Mid-range coming?
    • Three-range coming?
    • Year 1: 16.0 PER, Year 2: 19.7 PER, Year 3: 23.3 PER.
    And yet again in the postgame, Udoka states that he wants Alperen to stop passing up shots. This is real progress. Imagine what Alperen Sengun looks like at 25. We have ourselves a franchise cornerstone C, and we need to develop/find more. I hope that JG and Jabari are it because we desperately need the shot-making, the major skill they were both drafted for.
