    I agree with that.

    I think Sengun at minimum needs to add a consistent middy if he is going to be a star level player. I’ve been saying that since before we drafted him.

    He’s always going to be a bit limited on defense (although I think he can be good there) so his offense needs to be extremely good if he wants to be a star.

    All that said, he’s pretty far down my list of concerns with this team. I think he’s going to be good enough to be a starter on a contender which is all that matters to me.

    Lol like I would waste time searching your post history. It's clear for anybody that can read and is interested.

    Giving a bias breakdown absolving Sengun of any accountability is pointless. He did turn the ball over TWICE against Orlando, then missed 2 layups the following game. His defense has NEVER been good

    fair assessment. I think kpj was okay, most importantly he did not dominate the game and the offense looked much better. With green I am more worried about him getting lost within 3 defenders when he drives to the rim. He needs good coaching there.

    A Keto diet is a terrible idea for a high level athlete. For peak performance, the body needs carbohydrates. Also, there is nothing wrong with carbohydrates. Remember when fat was evil? Now the industry has people believe carbs are innately bad.

    He just needs to get a nutritionist, if he doesn't already have one. These fad diets don't do anything special.

    Yes, no hardcore keto, just something that helps him get more defined muscle and power.

    Everyone seems to like ripping into Alpi for defense on PnR but the perimeter defense has been far worse. I have no idea what KPJ and Green are doing or reading out there at times defensively. Tough to defend the interior if Luka is doing whatever he wants to get by them.

    We talked about this in the previous game's thread; it's another challenge to keep a team of top 5 picks as they graduate from their rookie contracts because they all will be looking to get paid big bucks. The winning team would include both stars as well as solid players who support the stars. If Sengun becomes that star despite his deficiencies, then great; if he doesnt become a star, then, he can at least be a solid facilitator.

    If we draft wemby, I agree, I don't see how wemby would work out with Sengun.

    Also, with his current effiency, I wouldn't give JG a max contract. KPJ's contract is team optional, so, rockets can walk away from it anytime they want.

    So you can't then? And you think that wins you the argument? Interesting, if you ACTUALLY searched my post history, you'd find I've been a fan of Sengun since we drafted him, you'd just also find I can be honest about his limitations too. Nice try though, I bet I own more Sengun jerseys than you do.

    Seriously, what is the matter with you Americans??
    Why more than one jersey, if any, ever?
    What am I missing here?
    Tell me, how many do you own and why??
