    Relax. Summer League has never been a major showcase of our new talent. Its definitely on some G-League type ball. Some guys are relying on their performance so they aren’t worried about 1st round draft picks.

    Jabari will be best used early with others creating for him so once Alpy and KpJ and Green are on the floor and finding him he'll shine. Paolo is clearly the more nba ready go to scorer/playmaker and that was known

    He can't handle the ball at an elite level and he can't shoot off the dribble. He's going to look like a role player compared to Chet and Paolo.

    I hope Paolo is great. He wanted to come here. Nothing says we can't get him later in his career. Smith just needs to play his game and not try and do too much.

    Jabari seems like he has some nerves - he hasn’t been bad at all but you can just see he really wants to make a statement play or two. Seems like he took the draft personally

    Eason better be the starting SF almost instantly. I'm going to love watching him play defense.

    Banchero looks a lot more intent offensively, but also Orlando looking to involve him a lot more in the action than the Rockets seem to have done so far with Jabari.

    All I hear about Jabari Smith is that he's "the hardest worker"... well in the NBA talent with decent work ethic triumphs hard work ethic and less talent every time.

    Banchero has a natural ability to score off the dribble, at 6’10” that’s what’s going to separate him from the rest of this class.

    For a guy that’s motivated, he doesn’t really call for the ball. He’s a role player nothing more
