    Blackhole implies some kind of unwillingness or inability to pass. Sengun doesn’t fit that description.

    in the same post he's called a great passer with terrible ball movement lol

    what would people be saying about him if the warriors took him at 7 and played him 24mpg since day 1? what would people be saying about him if the thunder kept him to pair with giddey and made him the starting center since day 1?

    You say Sengun is a black hole, but Wood is clearly better in the same sentence? Mmmmmkay I guess.

    If by better you mean a black-er hole, then I agree.

    This is the deal. Sengun is playing chess while the rest of the franchise is playing checkers. Hopefully in time the rest of the franchise will catch up to Sengun.

    When you and Ashleyem are on the same side of an argument, it's like a virtual guarantee that I should take the other side.

    Sengun year 3 MVP?

    Exactly.
    He's a ball stopper, not a black hole.

    If players moved when he had the ball it wouldn’t stop as much. He does need to evolve, but so does the offense when he’s in.

    The ball only appears to stop due to the intense gravity of the Sengunlarity.

    The issue with Sengun is his height and nothing else. He is too short to be a starting NBA center. Height issues have been a major problem for the Rockets since Capela was basically released. Sengun is fantastic in all other catagories but is too short to be a center and may be a bit too slow to be a PF. He is yet another “tweener” that the Rockets always seem to fall in love with. Add last night to the list of many nights where the opposing team’s taller people (Miles Turner) killed us and we got outrebounded by a ridiculous number. The day we trade Wood, who is the closest thing we have to a Center (albeit too skinny and injury prone) is the day we go back to total tanking with small ball again. Rockets will never be a legit contender until they get a legit Big who can stop other Bigs from abusing us….Period!!!

    He'd be pretty deadly playing backup for Green with the Warriors, especially with their movements and cuts

    Correct, the Sengularity has the ability to slow the game down.

    Similarly, Green’s first step is so fast that — like a photon — it is as if he doesn’t experience Time.
