    True. Harden was the same way. I am glad we got rid of him so we can actually win some games.

    You titled the thread as senguin is a black hole which basically means once he gets the ball no one else touches it. You then went to say when he gets the ball he uses dribble hands off the ball which is the opposite of a black hole.
    I would also argue his teammates don't bail him out, if anything they jack him over by not making open shots or finishing at the rim. He had atleast 5 wide-open looks today result in no assists bc his super hero teammates missed open shots or layups.
    He needs to develop a shot for sure but what he is polished at is in the block. Rockets should be getting him the ball in the low post more, I have been saying this for weeks.

    Why is ashleyem obsessed with "holes"? His last two threads used the word "hole". Lucas and sengun and hole. Freudian slip?

    Sengun is the most overhyped player here since Lin. He's put together some good games, but you guys talk about him like he's Hakeem. He's turnover prone & also fouls too much

    What makes you such a child?

    The ball moves so much better with Sengun on the floor. You know that and I know that.

    You realize that there are some 30 year old bigs who dont have Senguns footwork and passing ability right? And he's 19 do you understand that players that do what he is doing now get better?? You wanna go back and look at Jokers first year be my guest tell me what you find and Sengun has him beat on first year defense already. Houston hasnt had a really good rookie in a long time and it shows because half of you think what they are now is what they are always gonna be. Its ridiculous. I swear I have made this post 1000 times on here. I mean comparing Sengun to Lin as far as overhype demonstrates a total lack overall understanding of how basketball works.

    I actually agree with what you are saying. It doesn’t mean he won’t improve and become more effective, but he is young and still figuring things out. He needs to really work on his jumper to keep defenders honest. Now, they just ignore his shot and wait for him to dribble into coverage.

    when he gets it, i think they need more movement around him. He will find the cutters if they create space to receive the ball

    Yikes.

    Imagine watching Sengun play, and him being a black hole is what you take away from it.

    That's an instant ignore.

    If you're that wrong - that horribly wrong - I shudder to think what your other basketball comments are.

    My goodness that is an embarrassingly bad take.

    The fact you don't know what an actual black hole is in basketball terms, is confusing as well. Especially since nearly every single time Sengun gets the ball he surveys the court to see if he can make a pass to a teammate in better position.

    I'm not sure OP understands what a "black hole" is in basketball terms. Şengün is far too gifted and willing a passer to ever be described as that.

    However, he is a bit of a ball stopper and he definitely needs to work on that.

    This video comprises all of Sengun's possessions in the Pacers game.
    Will the O.P**** please watch it and tell me where t f Al-P's being a ball hog.
    If he can't back his lame argument up with facts, he will be demoted to O.P.o.S.
