    31/13/3/1 block on 14/22 shooting.

    He looked special. Great touch around the rim, great awareness, and looked good on D besides being a little out muscled at times.

    He looks like he’s the real deal, more importantly, him and harden look to have instant chemistry.

    A slightly thinner, less refined version of AD. Which is a Top 20-30 player in the league.

    He's gotta work on his defense. Nurkic, despite a quiet statline, was working him over early on.

    Jokic, Aldridge and other bigs are going to feast if he doesn't work.

    Hoping Harden stays. This is what he was missing last season when we traded Capela.

    Great signing. Stone got a winner there.

    2021 All stars player. He is much stronger than Caplea. The defence problems for the team needs to employ JVG as assistant coach. JVG can teach all players except Harden, I think Harden will not complian on this.

    Woods has improvement level, Simmons and Herro do not have, so please dont trade into our team for this 1x points guys

    Aldridge? Jokic is gonna kill everybody. So is Embiid and Towns.

    Wood looked really good. It took OT and a career night from McCollum to beat us, even missing half the team. Can't wait to see the squad at full strength.

    Lol, not serious - I agree with some muscle/defense work for sure but he's looking great for being signed under the radar by the league. And depending what version of Cousins is playing... He played enough defense earlier in his career that he'd help with assignments (possibly), but obviously we still need to see how he plays - he didn't look great for GSW etc but I'm being optimistic he can recover.

    This is why I think the Boogie signing could be so valuable, if he's able to stay healthy. He's got the size and strength to matchup with some of the more traditional centers. Having him gives us a ton of versatility IMO.

    Still has to work on his defense. Point is, if Nurkic can establish something early, other better bigs are going to have an even easier time.

    Playing for the Pistons / weak East where there's not too many good bigs meant you didn't really have to try - either because your team dgaf or because there wasn't much talent. Now, he does.

    HARDEN THROWS BALLS AT HIS TEAMMATES THO

    HARDEN HATES HOUSTON

    That's pretty big praise from Harden. Don't think he's ever said that about any new teammate before.

    He needs help in the frontcourt. House and Tucker can’t compliment him . We need cousins and cabouco

    Wood is too skinny to bang with bigger centers like Nurkic. He just gets bullied to hell down low. We should start him and cousins together. They are both shoot 3's so the spacing is okay

    Very impressed with his offense touch. Post defense and box outs need a lot of work. Hopefully Cousins can help him out with that.
