This is Dwight from his rookie year:

Jarrett Allen has a long way to go before he even is at that level of bulk :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think a reliable hook shot move and becoming at least a low 30s three point shooter would be some good growth. But he has to get physically stronger, the dude can score 15-18 points in a game just off of putbacks, dunks and catch and finish opportunities.

he also needs to stop fumbling the ball.

lmaooo wow I pictured Dwight being a lot skinnier than that but yea you're right. He need to put some glue on his hands.. sheesh Allen has long ways to go.. we need to re sign Ed Davis for sure or at least some1 who can bang down there.

I think a forgotten element of adding Irving this summer would be the sick amount of pick and roll lobs Allen would get. He already has a nice 2 man game going with LeVert, I would expect the same with him and Irving. DLo is a really gifted passer, but he's not as much of a true 2 man game p'n'r threat like a LeVert or Kyrie, he's more of a catch them off guard from the perimeter after around the horn ball movement and catch a guy wide open off a 1 or 2 dribble off the head fake, no look.

Kyrie ain't no prime Chris Paul, but he's more of a break the defense down point guard then DLo for sure.

Kyrie and LeVert will help Allen turn into a beast in year 3 and beyond if he isn't dealt in a follow up move.

The highest priority for me is seeing how much strength & mass Fro can put on over the summer. A delicate balance I'm sure, since it's no good putting on so much that it reduces his shot-blocking or puts his joints at greater risk. But it's time.

When do we get good video of these guys again, training camp? Late September I guess...?

Jarrett Allen on his playoff debut vs Embiid:

It fueled me pretty well. We all know, the obvious thing that was going around, all over the world, was that I was not strong enough. That is one thing I really wanted to change in the offseason.

why did the Nets sign Jordan? Allen should be a starter in the 2020 season.

KD and Kyrie wanted him with them and we needed depth at center. He fits perfectly in our system.

because we had no backup center and no bulky bigman to help vs the embiids of the world.
