He was asked directly the question, no problem with him answering it.

When Zingis stuffs his slow ass methodical drive into his throat maybe some will wonder why he answered a question from a checkless nobody on twitter that way....isn't replying to 'fans' on twitter a sign of weakness from a beta like KD.. at least that's the narrative on the forum lately or isn't it?

Sighs .... it wasn’t on Twitter. It was a Q&A hosted on Bleacher Report AMA.

Also you call it pandering when this is just who is is, been this way since high school. He’s a humble, good kid but he talks a lot of trash. He’s also a Knick fan. So you’re asking him to be something he’s not to fit your standards.

It really doesn't matter who it was, the media are only accredited trolls instead of nobody trolls seeking to cause controversy, he doesn't have to indulge the adolescent question about posterizing anyone. I guess I'm not so easily impressed by summer time boasting from someone who has even suited up in the NBA yet.

It's amusing though. :lol:

I agree. He’s been a humble kid overall too. It’s not like he’s out here wildin out like Johnny Manzel or something.

RJ is going to make KP fold like a cheap tent.

KP is going to bounce of brolic RJ. You don't believe in KP's instagram body, do you? He's going to come in looking exactly the same.

Actually, I'd assume KP is going to reject RJ pretty good at some point and RJ will throw a few down on him at some point.

Yeah, I ain't mad at this one mainly because all the notes about RJ's work ethic make me think he'll earn the chip on his shoulder with time. But also because his answer is tailor made for and shows at least some understanding of the fanbase.

Remember when people wanted to Dunk on Mutumbo. Just so happen a tall shot blocker is a previous knick and he didnt want to say Zion to make Zion make sure it doesnt happen.

I admire the confidence however I’m not sure RJ has the explosiveness to dunk on anybody let alone a guy who we saw leading the league in blocks pre injury. It’s a tough task so I hope he’s up to the challenge

I hope so, to me it looked like he may have some difficulty finishing over some of the bigger defenders in the NBA

Def but he has to get stronger. Might take a few years but I love that he aint scared to drive. I dont like to overhype rookies before they play but I know a star when I see one. Its a mindset thing and RJ has it that aspect down. Lets just hope he has the skills too

RJ's explosiveness is definitely a thing of mystery to me. We'll have to see. Skill and jumper will be more important though. I still don't think Harden is anything explosive. Nor really was a Paul Pierce. It's an overrated thing to a large extent.
