    Shawn Bradley with a cross-over. ;)

    Nah, he's nothing like Bradley in game but I just have a hard time trusting that frame to hold up in the NBA. Even determined NBA wings are going to dislodge him.

    Yeah hopefully he can add weight add a steady and healthy pace. Otherwise he may end up being another Andrea Bargnani if he stays too thin.

    Everyone looks good in the draft...

    One game. In summer league.

    Everyone has been saying he was good in high school and college. That was never the debate. The debate was how could he hold up against bigger, stronger competition especially over the course of an entire season. Or even multiple seasons. We will need to give it time to see how good he actually can end up being.

    Jabari may not have quite as high of a ceiling, maybe (debatable) but I think his floor is so much higher. Plus I think he was a better fit with Jalen.

    I think we are all aware it is only summer league but if you watched the game you could see his decision-making was quite good with passing, timing the blocks, and had a lot of Dirk-like moves. Also, for a 7ft, his ball-handling skills look polished. Although, players like Giannis, Embiid, and Joker will dunk all over him all day long, grinding against stronger players is probably not his strength and I do not think OKC will be expecting him to do that. But provide that mid-range and 3pt threat which will be difficult to guard due to his long frame. Surrounded by good PG in Giddy, I think the duo will do very well.

    Does OKC have inside muscle to reduce wear on Chet? Don't care to follow the Thunder...

    He has done this against bigger and better competition, he’s dominated against the worlds best. Dude has won everywhere he’s went and been one of if not the best players on the floor wherever he’s went.

    Chet looked amazing. Dirk's shooting and ball handling with Shawn Bradley's defense.

    OKC is building a nice team there. They could challenge the Rockets when our championship window opens.

    Random Thoughts

    Chet Holmgren falling down made me think "How long is he going to last"

    Already has a knee sleeve on.

    Kristaps Porzingis Athleticism went missing after knee injuries.

    Most young players in Summer League won't be in the NBA in 4 years.

    Summer League is nothing but training.
    Players Trying to remember Plays.

    Media does Overhype Prospects.

    Kid looked smooth. Is it just me, or has he filled out a bit already?

    He falls a lot. Has never been hurt.
    Most players wear some type of compression sleeve
