Really cool he got to train with Mahmoud Abdul Rauf. Rauf was nasty back in the day playing on those Nugget teams with Mutombo.

Crazy to think that we wouldn't even have Precious had we won those last meaningless games in the bubble vs. OKC and Indy. I believe we woulda slid some spots and won't be at 20 in exchange of homecourt and the 4th seed. I even remember some pissed off Heat fans saying no to tanking cos of pride. Lmao.

Again, if Precious or Bam get a consistent J, wow oh wow.

This kid is a BEAST. Loved his D second half vs. the supposed blue chips Zion and Ingraham, love all his activity. He's raw, not super clean on O/not soft handed, and plays more of an energy game to make up for being a bit undersized. But dude can run and his energy game is top notch. Can't believe he landed in such a perfect spot to contribute right away and also be surrounded by enough depth and leadership to not have to shoulder a team's PR narratives, on court win/lose, etc. Great story so far, looking forward to more. I'm a Disney geek and Stitch is my guy- small beast. That's my comparison for Achiuwa lol.

That is INSANE.

It means his improvement curve can spike a lot higher then a "normal" player his age. also means we should expect some rawness.

So far seems like a nice energy big with a nose for attacking the rim and good defensive and rebounding instincts. That he has been able to contribute as our 3rd big behind Bam and Kelly so soon is a big plus. Beyond that, I'm not too sure of star potential. Obviously it's too early to put a ceiling on him. I honestly think his biggest value to the team is as a trade chip.
