    That toilet scum of a coach even said his dad would tell him all the time to use big men more. Silas is just an affront to basketball and set our franchise back during the years we could develop most freely.

    So we're back to fighting again? Dang that was short lived and this jab totally out of the blue! What gassed you up? Twitter? :D:D Good for Jokic to break through. Bad for logic to think that because Sengun matches or beats some of his marks at the 'age 20' season that its a given Sengun will ever reach the same heights. First things first would be for Alpie to come back next season with a jump shot. Have you guys been watching Jokic splash shots from all over the court? Yeahhh --- I do love the post hoc stuff though its romantic to see fans head over heels for the guy.

    Except nobody thinks it is a given. Probably nobody thinks it is likely.

    Do we enjoy the slight possibility that it will happen, rather than keep repeating it won't happen? Definitely.

    You are a true visionary that is the first to see Sengun will not reach Jokic level(but you somehow failed to see Jokic can actually win in the playoffs until he did). Congrats bro!

    He will likely never get to "Jokic level" but his current accomplishments before he can even buy beer is a good indication he will be somewhere in between Jokic and Sabonis which would make him a VERY good player. We have no idea what his ceiling currently is. Though doubtful, he could very well be close to Jokic level by the time he reaches his mid 20's. Even if he is already at his ceiling he is a 20/10/5 player which is pretty darn good.

    It didn't make sense to me to downplay Jokic's postseason chances because of his defense when Dirk already pulled it off a decade ago. Denver's defense has been league average at worst for the past five seasons and have a massive positive net rating with Jokic on the floor so he clearly wasn't holding them back in any aspect.

    Coping for what?

    This board seems to have people who want build everything around Sengun right now no matter what or people who want him traded yesterday?

    I'm not allowed to have an opinion in the middle? I think his ceiling is probably 2nd best player on a title team, but he HAS to develop a very consistent 3 pt shot to get there; especially since his size/length and lateral mobility will probably prevent him from guarding any elite big he would face in WC SF/F.

    So most likely I would project him somewhere between 6th man and 3rd best player on a title team. He is still really young so there is no where to know where on that he would fall.

    A lot of this will depend on team construction and schem because he NEEDS a motion offense and probably a defense that utilizes some elements of Denvers scram defense and maybe LSU's defense that Tari excelled in.

    Maybe discuss basketball instead of attacking people.

    LOL you're kidding me right? After having to endure every ad hominem in the book by his groupies, BS racial accusations, a gang of Turks who only wanted to sow dissent here and the endless spam about Sengun being the next big thing in basketball, how he's a 'good' defender and the excuse machine as to why he hasnt been better than he has --- it has been a thorough shitshow. Victimize yourself and walk back the hyperbole all you want there was never really any middle ground because of the abrasive approach you SOFs took.

    Buddy you're typing a whole lot but not really saying much lol but by all means keep harping on only the negatives to convince yourself he can never be like Jokic all you want you will only look more silly with time.

    2nd best player on a title team is basically Clyde Drexler. Or Kobe. Or David Robinson.

    I'll allow it.

    He has it. He just needs to let it fly without hesitation. Silas and his idiots did more damage than good there.

    If Sengun fans get under your skin so much why would you bother reading a thread titled "Alperen Sengun is the Rockets' franchise player"? It seems you could avoid a lot of aggravation avoiding threads like this.

    You are imagining things none of that ever happened. 99% of Sengun fans have been nothing but respectful

    Sengun needs to work on his body and his 3-ball. He needs to find his spots in Udoka’s offense. That will unlock everything for him. I doubt he’ll ever be as good he Jokic who is an all-time great, but he’ll be a load to handle for anybody

    Silas is the scapegoat for all of Sengun's weaknesses now lol
    Oh yeah, because Sengun's accountable for absolutely nothing
