    The turnovers kinda take the shine off of KPJs game.

    It’s inevitable when you always have the ball in your hands. We said the same thing about Harden for many years. His TOs were through the roof, but he was also dropping 30 and 10

    The Rockets need to keep an eye on Anthony Lamb.

    Honest question, how did John Wall manage to get a supermax? Did he have incriminating pictures or just awful GM?

    He’s learning to be a PG - his turnovers were super low as a SG/SF

    Dude has looked solid in his two games w/Vipers. Much better than Patton, better footwork/more fluid than Spalding. An undrafted rookie that doesn't look scared.

    Vipers had no options but to play him at center. He is a small forward at best. Unfortunately he is redundant to K Martin. Until he hurt his ankle Martin looked All G League. Surprised how rapidly he has progressed.

    Lamb is definitely a keeper to develope.

    They are both only 6'6.

    But Lamb has a 7'0 wingspan.

    Also, NBA is odd like that.

    I'd argue most players getting the max do not deserve it (but it's what the market pays) and the guys actually worth it are actually underpaid.

    KPJ is special. Im happy he’s at peace with this franchise and seems tuned in. I like watching him play. So weird to feel more attached to the Vipers than the Rockets.

    It really is underrated. I prefer it over beef at times
