He's been a tremendous fit so far.
Surprisingly he been a clear upgrade over what the team was getting from Oladipo.

He and Avdija were the two guys I had the most difficult time evaluating during draft time. Could've seen him going either way. He's looked pretty good so far. I'm wondering about his future fit with Capela and Collins though, especially if he starts breaking out.

By his 3rd season Okongwu is pushing hard for a starter or 6th man role. Think in terms of how GSW brought Draymond along.

Just want to chime in:

Generally speaking,

No fan cares about other fans opinions when it comes to how championships are won.

A championship is a championship, period.

Even the Astros?


Yes. Asterisk and all.

Luka is a consensus best player in the making. Still I won't be sold until he develops better shot selection.

The Suns offence in the last 6 minutes looks like the Jazz offence of the first 6 minutes.

I also think Luka is the most likely to leave of all the young stars if his team does not build a contender. He has been playing for championships since he was like 15 years old. I don't see him as the type of player that settles for a lot less.

Rudy Gay 9 shot attempts in 11 minutes. Don't ever change chucker.

And typical Pat Mills night off the bench, -16 in 17 minutes, despite being 8pts on 3-4. Teams eat him alive when he is on the court.

Cam Johnson is way more solid than I ever thought he was going to be going into the draft.

I think he goes where he can win. Something that crossed my mind that goes against the Laker attraction. The east coast is about 5.5 hours flight time closer to his home.

The Red Sox did cheat and the buzzer theory was a dumb bogus rumor made up by the internet.

Lol Boston just saw their qb of many years go somewhere else to win, the Celtics have been a super disappointment this year, and the Red Sox aren’t good either. I know Houston’s the worst sports town right now but Boston hasn’t been great either.
