He looks a lot more determined/aggressive these last few games.
And I loved the pass to Wagner, play starts around the 3:45 mark.
Let it run and they replay it a few times. Smooth move of the game.
Agreed more aggressive and playing to his strength that midrange jumper is just money.I really like him being more aggressive on the defensive end earlier he looked to passive and scared to commit fouls.This was his most complete game to me very Kawhi-like.
He is so immensely talented that I understand why we took the gamble.
His body is simply ahead of his read/reaction time, which makes him look out of sorts and sometime over zealous... but you can see it starting to slow down.
You can see his body is simply built to be an NBA player. Not just height and wingspan, but his proportions in his hands, torso vs legs, etc. It also matter that Gonzaga played in 74 games in Rui's last two years... and he played in EVERY SINGLE ONE.
I have a feeling he is going to be an NBA iron man, which is important in this day and age... so long as Bonga stays away from his boys (LOL)
I think Wall comes back to about the same caliber of player and Beal continues in his trajectory. We will be the comeback team next year and they'll receive a ton of accolades and Wall will surely be on some intimate sit down with ESPN or something about turning his career around... but the truth is, Brown, Rui, Bryant, Bonga, and Wagner are going to be the real story.
A group of 2nd guessed, overlooked players that will be of far more significance on an opposing teams scouting report than a Headline on ESPN.
Mark it down. If we draft Killian Hayes to go with this group, I'd be willing to bet Hayes, Brown, Bonga, Rui, Wagner/Bryant could beat most not top 10 teams starting 5 by 21/22.
Bench: Hayes, Bonga, Bertans, Wagner, Mathews, Tillman (2nd), Full MLE
I'll take that 12 man group and not blink
