    spacing for jalen + kpj is going to be so good with the gravity Jabari and Egod will provide. Also positioning Sengun in the middle it could be a wet dream in terms of areas of the floor we can attack efficiently.

    I have not seen a full link, just the extended highlights which is enough for me this early in pre season.

    Will watch when I get home.

    pretty sure the controller is on the bottom left, I turned the stage commentary off and left the regular game announcers on at low volume to simply watch the game. Also hid the chat as it was pretty distracting

    You think i’m gonna go back looking for something to prove something to you? lol

    The keyword is “Summer League” and there’s a couple Rockets 2022 NBA summer league posts in the CF threads here…there YOU will find your answers.

    Plenty of knee-jerk clowns complaining about his lack of handle and that he’s gonna be a bust, etc…

    The Pop post game really has some great insight into the potential of this team. When Pop says, they were dominated physically that has to bode well about the culture of this team. Yes it's the Spurs but culture and identity our about oneself regardless of opposition.

    Jabari in a way is limited by his relatively lack of crazy length and athleticism. He doesn't elevate very well on drives, nor is he the quickest, which is why he gets blocked quite a bit on drives.

    Mobley for example can do the exact same dribble drive move and just dunk on the other person because he has a bigger wingspan/vertical.

    I imagine Jabari will have to ditch that dribble drive game and start pulling up for mid ranges which will make him unstoppable. He's a way better shooter than most bigs out there, that's what make him good.

    So you can't.

    I have made my point that you were full of hyperbole to make a point of some kind.

    Everybody should be concerned about a # 3 pic that has no handle and can't create his own offense, just like every other draft pick that has questions.

    There were not 3 people in that thread that called him a bust, and 2 of them were just trolling.

    On the flip side, you should not be in here acting like all questions have been answered after 1 pre season game.

    Banchero is good too. The jury is still out on who is better between these 2 players.

    Why do you need to judge though? Rox never had a chance at getting Banchero so even if he is better it doesnt matter.

    Personally I think both are pretty even Banchero has a lot more tools but Jabari has the better mentality between the 2. Banchero can practically do anything when he sets his mind to it but Jabari is more consistent when it comes to defense and is a better team oriented player (plays within the system etc) with little to no ego.

    I think we are going to see games where KPJ, green, and Jabari run the score up 15pts in 2min from getting hot and firing off threes

    These nba scheduling computers need a virus uploaded to them Independence Day style. 5 days between preseason games like it's all star weekend.

    Houston Rockets managed to do a video replay w/ radio audio. We need the highlights of that!

    Also crazy how Pop’s first season was the worst and now will gift San Antonio a farewell package in a potential #1 pick.

    Start with Duncan, part with Wemby / Scoot ;)
