    Agreed
    I will have to take your word for it on Chet. You have probably followed his college career. I only watched him in the NCAA tournament, where Drew Timme looked like a much better Pro prospect to me.

    Hush up. I want to learn more about this Chet fellow no one has discussed and how we will acquire him with the draft pick we don't have yet.

    Ivey and Sharpe are both explosive athletes.

    After we trade for Jalen Johnson let's trade for Jalen Suggs and draft Jalen Duren

    Once we acquire our fifth Jalen we can change our name to the Houston Jalens

    Are we just assuming because Banchero has the ability to bring the ball up the floor that he’s a playmaker? We might as well just keep Wood if that’s the case.

    Bringing up Shawn Bradley as a concern for picking Chet has got to be the laziest player analysis I’ve seen in a while.

    “Hmmm let me Google “skinny white NBA player” and see what comes up”

    I sort of agree, I like Chets potential but I just get this feeling Chet’s going to have injury issues when he really hits his prime as a player. I hope I’m wrong but it’s not normal to be that size and play that way, and your putting a lot of stress on your knees and ankles as a big or tall player when your on the perimeter crossing over. Which is why guys like Porzingis, AD, and KAT have dealt with injuries as much as they have recently. Even KD couldn’t escape it, but luckily his injuries didn’t come to much later

    Can’t help but look at Mobley and think Chet is just about the same size…maybe it’s just me tho

    The rockets do not want to be the team that drafts a guy named Chet. Let Detroit /Orlando make that mistake.

    Be dumb not to take the best player in the draft, Chet is a memorable name.

    1. Both 7 footers but Holmgren is longer (7'7 vs 7'5 wingspan) - Mobley more explosive above rim and more fluid laterally on perimeter but Holmgren is elite around the rim, offensively and defensively.

    2. Both are high IQ, very good handles and excellent vision - Mobley more disciplined and better first step but Homgren is more aggressive and more physical.

    3. Both excellent grab and go - strong finishers.

    4. Holmgren has the better jumpshot and 3ball, more efficient offensively - his upside is also higher. Best in catch and shoot but can also put ball on court and get to rim in 2 long steps.

    5. Both can survey and make the right pass over other players. Both are quick to make right read and deliver ball, ball does not get sticky.

    6. Both are excellent rebounders, Holmgren has the better TRB%. Holmgren also better FT%.

    7. Mobley is elite in not fouling on defense.

    8. Both have advanced ability to recover when beaten, Holmgren's greater length gives him advantage especially in the paint.

    9. Both are excellent in closing out to shooters - Mobley uses lateral agility + length + discipline to not foul is on par to Holmgen instincts + elite length.

    10. Both keep ball in play when blocking shots.

    Sengun is not as good shot creator as Banchero.

    But both Green and KPJ are better shot creators than Banchero.
