    Love this quote from Hollinger regarding Sengun. Says teenagers who dominate European league never fail.

    I have him fourth on my board. … To me – so, you asked about analytics and Europeans before – the one thing that’s been super-consistent is, guys who destroy a good European league as teenagers, the fail rate is zero. Those guys all turn out to be players. You go back to Toni Kukoc, those guys aren’t going to miss.

    John Hollinger on Alperen Sengun

    He does a good job at that but it feels like the entire point of the thunder is to just collect assets. Nothing else. He drafts well and does a good job flipping players as I'm sure he'll get more for Kemba than the Celtics ever could but there is really no team there.

    Asset collection, Presti is the best...but he's gotta eventually turn those assets into a team with roles built around 2-3 players.

    I think Hollinger is a bit of a clickbaiter but he's on point there. The skills Sengun has are elite already.

    I think he will be very good.
