Is a rookie now our go-to-scorer? Who knew he would be sp accurate in his 3s?

Not saying he is “IT”.

But even with guys like Bacon, TRoss and other vets, if a rookie is good, he’ll outplay them.

Okeke has been a welcome sight. He does look that athletic but he is effective, and that’s what matters. Style points dont help you win.

Agreed. I don't even feel like he's just chucking either. Still moves the ball correctly. Love that he CAN get his shot.
His handle is better than I thought it would be too.

You can't not be excited about Chuma/Isaac/Carter Jr front court next season. Not stars but that is some winning basketball on both ends.

Gotta be honset, i dont watch the games anymore this season. Do you think Okeke can play SF fulltime next to Isaac at PF and Carter Jr at C? That way we would need to add a lead guard who can score (Cade, Green) and our starters for the next years should be set.

I think he can. He propably still is not in his best form. We would still need great offensive guards.

I agree that i think he can. He isnt doing to be a dynamic offensive SF, but he could be in that 3&D, fill up the box score type of SF. and playing with Isaac who can switch over to SF if needed, its not a bad lineup

Okeke also "led" the Magic with the worst +/- at -20.

16.3 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 3.0 APG, 1.3 SPG, 0.7 BPG and just 1.3 TOPG on a .524/.467/.923 split in 31.6 MPG.

As I said, the AG that we always wanted, but with way higher BBIQ.

I guess if Duncan was the Big Fundamental, Okeke is the Medium Fundamental.
