Not even sure what the media thinks Kuzma is. He was hated in the playoffs, but some seem to really like him.

I was thinking more prior to last year when he was la's 'third star'

Anyone else see a resemblance between baze and Kermit Washington?

Poku did a great job relocating, then fired a love drive below the rim

I knew Charlotte was trash but damn they always surprise me...

Expected more from Theo but it's his first NBA game so not worried at all.

I don't know how many games of poku playing and hami playing PG I can watch. Maybe like 8?

Theo is going to struggle if muscala is our best player on the court in his minutes

Charlotte announcers just said “must have lower rims over there in Serbia”.

Poku is a terrible defender, but if he can keep his arms out on the perimeter, he can be disruptive in passing lanes.

He also probably hasn’t practiced in a while.

Al is breathing like he has covid after every trip down the court.

Nice to see all the guys on the team want to slap Poku's hand when he came out. He seemed like a really annoying teammate in all the FIBA stuff I watched.

Well I guess if Hayward contract was the price to pay to get Cade, it's worth it

I'd say daignault is tanking with this lineup except he pulled poku

Well I guess if we have at least one young guy play good per game that gives us something positive. Bazley was really good. Dort was better but the step back three needs to never happen again. Theo had a few moments. Poku had no moments. Unfortunately I expect a lot of shai’s games this year to look similar tonight.
