Man what a pass. Didn't see that posted anywhere. Thats the kind of vision that had me excited before the draft. Looks like the kid I thought the Pistons drafted.

Be ready for some 4-guards lineups like this Stewart/Diallo/Jackson/Joseph/Smith lineup we saw last game. I'll be surprised if Casey give more than 10 minutes to Sekou despite Plumlee being out.

OKC with quite the tank starting lineup there. No one who even averages 10 PPG.

We could be down to Stewart, Grant, and sekou as our only 3 bigs, be facing a team like the Lakers with everyone healthy and you’d see Frank trying to guard Anthony Davis.

Yeah it's a weird universe where Pokousevski (literally not NBA ready) is getting minutes and Sekou is basically exiled

I’m with you on the logic but if Sekou isn’t doing the right things in practice or showing the right effort or comprehending what’s asked of him, it’s a bad precedent to just gift him minutes.

It would be one thing if Sekou was doing anything positive out there and then was being yanked. The guy has just not shown anything other than he can run up and down the court

Sekou hasn't exactly been doing a bang up job lately showing that he's NBA ready

Am I the only one that gets nervous seeing Diallo in #6?

I still have PTSD from the Josh Smith fiasco.

When Cory Joseph & Frank Jackson go on a 10-0 run to start a quarter, you know the opposition is minor league.

The team that surprised and beat good teams is done for. They are now the team that beats teams without their star players!
