OMG this guy. Only factor is how well his body will hold up long term.

Right? I think you may have seen him vs Whiteside...not a small guy! and he was bullying him. He was far enough for his intention to be clear and Whiteside didn't want any part of that. That play where he misses the shot, and just bounces up so quick for the offensive rebound. And that particular thing is going to be so interesting to watch.

Has anyone had as much second jump speed since Rodman as this guy? It must be exhausting playing against him.

Really reminds me of Barkley. His width up top and his caboose really moves people. Guys bounce off him. What a beast.

Imagine when he sheds some of that baby fat and really grows into his man strength. Hard to wrap my head around the fact that he's 19. Only other guy I feel that way about right now is Luka.

I really see him as naturally superior to Barkely physically, both in overall strength and trampolining. Whiteside isn't going to compare to the trees in Barkley's era (he probably doesn't know how to keep position vs the true big men who had to battle each other every night then) but this guy is straight up bullying him. I am not talking about skills which I have to believe Barkley has over him (just because Charles was really damn skilled), just sheer physical prowess and energy.

Man, this dude bounced Steven Adams off the court last night. He's the first person I've ever seen uproot that guy.

Crazy that these past two drafts have yielded generational talents like Luka and Zion. You'd have to go back to 2012/2013 to find similar talents in AD/Giannis. It's a pleasure watching them play. Zion's impact is already monumental and he's just 19.

Embiid, Jokic, and KAT all seem like pretty special talents.

The thing that makes me most sad is how the three straight years we had the #2 pick, none of those special talents were there. And that's no slight against the guys we picked, but these dudes are on another level.

Why can't we be in the universe where we lost our pick in 2017, and got Luka in 2018??

I mean, you can build a pretty damn good team out of BI, DLo, and Ball, imo.
