Meh, those weren't Ntilikina level passes though. Sure he dunks like Zion. Yeah his shot looks really good. But his passes to teammates look like run-of-the-mill passes, so...


This is what is known as trolling.

Do it again, and you will get more than a warning.

Maybe I'm looking at it with rose colored glasses, but I keep saying I think people are being way too down on DSJ's PG skills and defense. He's no CP3, but he's far better than say, Mudiay at both of those things. Once that shot starts falling (and he hits his fts), he's a great player

Probably a bit awkward this year with RJ, but that should smooth itself over as long as they both work on their shots

From that gym video? That ain't FIBA my brother. It's just some silly half-assed pickup game.

They said Frank is not an NBA player, so maybe Dennis can borrow his arms.

Hype is great and all but DSJ better learn to save the big dunks for when they matter or he’ll be back for his second ACL

Dennis will likely be the starting PG with Elfrid Payton as the backup. They are statistically the best PG's on the roster. AND DSJr's just a kid. Let's not give up too soon on the youth. The kid is only 21. 21!!! I'm giving the youth a chance. Let this kid play through his struggles.

Man, I didn't wanna go and say some sh*t like that.. but yea.. as cool as it is to see him fly, I hope he's not putting too much stress on his body going at the rim in all these meaningless off season pickup games and dunk contests. Save it for the KP and Jarrett Allen posters.

At the same time, awesome to see him putting in so much work this summer. The jumper looks rather wet.

Yep. You have to go through the growing pains with most kids. Most kids aren’t as game ready as guys who’ve been in the league for years.

It may not be possible - I heard Kemba has asked the NBA to outlaw Frank's arms. Too dangerous to the other team's offense.

I'm not trying to watch Elfrid Payton down the stretch of games or playing heavy minutes because DSJ is gassed, so I really hope this kid has improved his conditioning and stamina. The dunks are nice and all and if the shot improved that's great too but is he ready to lead a team now? Can he be dependable when it matters most? Hopefully he's prepared for that this summer, I really want him to provide that solution at that position which we have been missing for a long time.
