    This is great news. Iron sharpens iron. Let's hope both guys play fearlessly.

    Congratulations, I can’t think of two young players who deserve it more. Excellent character, hard work and talent. They must have a great reputation among coaches.

    Our guys might be the two best players on that team right now.

    More ammunition for Udoka to talk smack to them for not making the real USA team.

    Jalen made the select team last summer. Not sure why this would light a fire for him.

    Also, Udoka was very clear that fire is not Jalen’s problem. He was resilient, persistent and hard working according to all the staff and all the PG’s on this roster. All Green needs is better shot selection (more drives, fewer jumpers) and a little more muscle.

    He was on it last year. His fire was lit when he played like the best player in the NBA

    Rafael Stone wants Paolo Banchero, I know it is a Very Long Shot. No Super Max to anyone and looks like Rafael wants a upgrade at the Front Court.

    Jabari Smith I think must be moved, since he is a Free Agent in 2025
