    Jabari should replace Wood's spacing & 3P production.

    But Tate, KJ and especially Sengun must improve greatly in both areas.

    Yes, thank you D. I've been saying this strictly off of eye test.
    Graph helps put it in perspective.

    Amazing to know that Porter and Green did most of their work
    vs a packed paint a majority of the season. This is why I expect
    them to take off this year. Greater spacing should result
    in cleaner passes and less TOV's as well.

    If Sengun can add a 3ball he will be way more effective.

    Ya vegas has us about 27.5 based on article from nbcsports out of boston. Yet i find this is really the first year of the rebuild since all the mess was kinda extracted. If they do get another shot at a top 5 pick, it would be pretty interesting, say boston "like" rebuild. Everyone saw how they were blessed with picks and great drafts, and now you can see what this is doing for them. Hopefully these drafts pay off, no negativity just yet. lol

    I think JayGup will eventually be moved because he will want to start, and probably should somewhere....and he won't get that here with KPJ and Green in his way.

    Stone really did it didn’t he?

    Every young player he has drafted or acquired is destined to be at least a starter. Likely all star and possible mvp. Love to see it

    Thanks for this thread DaDakota! Just what I needed to eat my lunch with.

    Besides the development of our guards does anyone else just feel like the basketball universe is tilting our direction? With the likelihood that Brooklyn is going to stink and we have those unprotected first rounders from them. Also that we are going to have so much money to spend when we are actually a piece or two away from making real noise in the playoffs. And that fact that the cancer C Wood is in Dallas. So many reasons to be excited. Not to mention Jabari and Tari!

    That said, I'm more worried about us learning to play defense. I think Scoot and Bucket could have all-star seasons but if we are always ranked in the bottom 10 on defense it won't matter at all. Hopefully the new coaches will bring us up to speed on defense. The track record says they will.

    Great thread. Go Rockets!

    That's unreal the rate KPJ knocks down C&S 3's with such little space.

    Please say its humor that you are attempting because if you're being real then I'd question if you've ever played an organized team sport.
