Never seen a worst player than Poku in the beginning of the season but damn he's playing very well right now and his ceiling is so high.

Still gonna be difficult for him to stay healthy but I definitely understand why Presti decided to gamble on him.

By statmuse check, he's youngest to have 7 3-pointers in a game. Was Lamelo at 19 and 190 days, he's slightly younger born 12/26/01.

So many GM’s are so scared to make the obvious picks.

His skillset and feel for the game at his size, damn.

Didn't expect him to be making these type of flashes so early on. OKC was the perfect situation for him.

Said it in the General Board thread, but his movement skills for his size are comparable to KD. Not the explosive / vertical athlete, but otherwise they are similar as hell. Again, this isnt comparing talent level or saying he will be (near) as good. But the body fluidity at 7 feet tall, only KD is a similar comparison.

He has everything needed to be really, really special. He was a clear cut top pick and once again, like Giannis, the GM's just cant see the forest for the trees.
