If Dort doesn’t get it together soon, I’m ok with moving him out of the starting lineup soon.

Nice pass by Theo. Dort looks rough. Bazley has been solid.

Poku is just terrible at basketball right now. Not a long term statement, just right this minute.
“If you're getting stops and you're making threes and the other team's not scoring, that's when you're going to see a huge point difference there,” coach Billy Donovan said.

The flat shot concerns me. It’s correctible but probably not until the offseason.

I will wait next season to critice Presti about the Poku pick. But yeah OKC isn't worried to give a lot of playing time even if he struggles.

Bazley looked pretty horrible at the beginning of last year too. But, yeah it’s pretty rough.

Poku is on another level :lol:

But yeah just drafted, no training camp and really young so he needs time.

I’ve been pleased with Shai’s passing. I see some good things on defense but his ceiling is all dependent on him learning how to hit shots with his feet set.

Are the starters going to end up being an average nba group?
