    Honestly, I am glad Clutchfans is turning a leaf on Garuba. A thread like this proves that Garuba is finally earning the respect of this forum.

    I been patient on Garuba, just staying on the wings looking like he just had potential. Glad he is finally looking good. The energy he brings defensively is freaking incredible.

    He is going to be the defensive anchor people thought Jabari was going to be.

    That pass to Gordon corner 3 was incredible.. split second decision and precise pass..

    it’s like in Real Madrid, for years he’s been brainwashed into thinking: “look, destiny, you can’t do sht on offense beside shoot wide open 3, putback, dunk and layups.. always aware of your teammates position, the moment you receive the ball inside the 3 point area but away from the rim, pass immediately!!”

    :D:D

    I need to check the highlights. Haven't seen a game for longer than 5 minutes because of kpj.

    People just do not learn. What is Jabari one of the 10 youngest players in the nba?

    Garuba and Green suck.
    Wait no they are getting better.
    Jabari sucks. Almost zero hope for improvement.
    Patience be damned……

    Usmans hustle and all out effort are such a treat. His defensive intensity is contagious. Becoming a consistent 3 point threat will be a revelation for this team.

    Stone did it again!

    glad to see the forum understand the player we have in our team. It was insanity to have people discuss a player of his international pedigree like that. He should be the benchmark for many things we aspire our organization to be as he comes from one of the most well funded sports club in the world.

    As long as he maintains his 75% 3 point shooting he should start over sengun.

    When he drops down to 50, he should be sent to Vipers.

    I thought the chances of Garuba panning out were about as good as Daishen Nix winning a slam dunk contest.. Yet here we are.

    Had nothing to do with patience if in the short term plan Player B is better than Player A.

    To attract FAs you have to conceptualize a short term goal.

    Trying to be cute but good attempt, breh.

    Patience is something vague that you cannot put out as stats or on a performance sheet.

    Say it to a hungry refugee :'Well, we have bread next month, have patience till then. '

    If our free agency plans rely on Jabari getting off to a hot start to his rookie season then Stone deserves to be fired. When is free agency again? Next summer? People are whining now, game to game.

    He’s a special player. Versatile defender, hustle, rebounds, blocks, steal, good passer, and can hit the open 3.

    I've always thought he was one of the "safest picks" in the draft. A role player, most likely. Coming, off injury, young, and out of shape...it was ugly at first. But, for him to be flashing this so soon... it's obvious the game has really slowed down for him. Maybe a little Draymond in Destiny...
