    Alp,Tari.Green and Bari is a marvellous quartet. They can do everything. No limit. Rockets is very lucky to have them.

    Tall task? All of them tall people, don't worry. They have enough height :)

    pot calls kettle black.

    I was thinking you were the person posting dumbest things (except ignored D-List members, anyway I don't see what they post).

    you live to learn. Mutual feelings.

    D-List posters are the best. Ask anyone.

    You’re funny… I can’t wait for y’all to turn on Ime bc he turns Sengun into the 6th man. I’m here for it and got my popcorn ready

    If he doesn't and ends up being featured more what happens? You gonna start hating on Udoka?

    He should be featured offensively when he’s on the floor, otherwise he’s useless. I’d be okay with that.

    I'm a believer in the jump shot. Mechanics look fine. Results were good enough in a limited sample this past season. He just needs to speed it up a little, but as they say, go slow to go fast. If he just keeps getting reps and focusing on keeping his mechanics sound, the speed to get it off more easily and confidently will come on its own.

    If he can consistently hit threes and space the floor, being in an all-star game within the next couple years should be within reach. After that, we'll just have to wait and see.

    He doesn’t have a jump shot. He has a set shot from 3 and that is fine. He should stop hesitating and let it fly when he is open. It would be very helpful if he could develop and mid range jump shot or Dirk like fade away as well.

    I don't care if he jumps, as long as it goes in.

    So funny how the haters undervalue Sengun and overvalue Claxton and Bridges. Those trades Kelly Iko suggested, my goodness.

    Udoka’s comments and Jokic breaking the glass ceiling for this style of play (think A. Sabonis and Divac as other archetypes who came up short) have got to have increased Sengun’s value, and our desire to build around him, this offseason.

    Now, the question is whether or not that colors our decision making about who to draft at 4. Remember, Denver has no PG since Jokic is the primary initiator of the offense. So in essence Murray shifts down from SG to defend opposing PG’s, and KCP, Gordon, and Porter round out their starting lineup. Ball handling is less of a premium in that style.

    In the Ringer Draft Pod they recently bumped Ausar up ahead of Amen, because of his shooting mechanics appearing to be reproducible and superior to his brother’s. Just a little food for thought.

    Ppl praise him in regular seasons and attack him in the offseasons. You can immediately tell he makes others around him better but when the season ends he turns into a 6'7 midget who needs to be traded. The whole fanbase needs to be on Prozac.

    haha at least you're consistent

    and more open about it than the "I love Sengun but I would trade him for a bag of chips" or the "I love Sengun but I just don't like his fans" crowd

    Why is the last sentiment fake?
    Out of all "only fans" Sengun fans are the most willing to throw other Rocket players under the bus.
