    I don’t mind Jalen being looked at as”the guy” to have the ball all the time. I think that’s bad for him. When he lets the game come to him he has better more efficient games.

    what I have major problems with is the offense and role in general.

    he ALMOST had a back door play today except Theis’ pass was insane.

    we’re 16 games in and he has like 2 fast break dunks and no back door cuts scores.

    how can you be an nba coach and not have that. Especially when you have Sengun as a big.

    Sorry, but Jalen was the one experts said was the most NBA-ready. Don't change the goalposts now.

    Shame his shooting mechanics are still letting him get his 3 point shots blocked. In the 16 years I've watched the NBA religiously, i've never seen another scorer get their outside shot blocked more than Green. And he's not even 20 games into his career.

    I'm glad you've got the inside scoop on how both their careers map out. Can you tell us the lotto numbers too this week? Can you tell us if Jalen gets those points on Westbrook-level shot attempts?

    Oh there we go again with another defense comment. Sheesh. Guess off the ball and transition defense is invisible.

    I tell you what. I'll have a Jokic-lite over a Lou Williams.

    You must have watched a good portion of the games. I have seen probably 30-40% of Green’s minutes and I don’t remember seeing his jump shot blocked much at all. I have seen a lot of shots at the rim blocked though.

    Is the rookie asking for coaching?

    In fairness, three out of the 6 above him are point guards and the other three are actually playing really well.

    Probably worthless to double post.

    the kid is incredibly athletic.

    they refuse to run him off multiple back screens to get open.

    insane.

    You quoted something from Jalen, but then said 'smartest player on the team'.

    Did you misquote a Sengun post?

    Gotcha. I didn’t watch any of today’s game.

    Well I’m happy with the rockets roster etc. Another good pick this year. Green/Sengun hoping the Nets implode and those picks are good. All positivity here. I love all the complaining and bickering about the team I find it entertaining as hell.

    Have they watched any tape of this team? There should be no egos.
