Theis is the 6th best player on our team. He's a very quality player at that spot in the pecking order. Our talent is a little disproportionately balanced towards the perimeter so at times he looks like a weakness but that's not an indictment of the quality of player he is.

Daniel Theis might be the most underrated player in the bubble. Not because he is an all-star, but because he is a net positive, when everyone saw him as a giant weakness.

Theis is a solid player. He's somewhat limited in the playoffs on offense due to his lack of length and explosion but on defense he knows how to play, is a pretty smart player, and stays within himself. I do think he will get a big contract after next year and proceed to flop but glad he's on the team..

The GB has been giving Theis props consistently all season. I often feel like he gets more love over there than he does over here. A lot of our fans love him, but there's still a sizable contingent that jumps all over him the moment he has a bad stretch.

Wanamaker too - he's almost universally regarded as a solid backup over there. They were on to him before most of our fanbase was.

Certainly he gets some love there, but I do recall at least one Raptor fan stating that the Raptors had such a large edge inside that it would be the driving factor in the series.

Theis is a good player. But this postseason I feel he's definitely phasing into "So many people talking about how he's underrated that he's overrated" territory.

Not a coincidence the team falls off a cliff down the stretch when he fouls out.

He’s pretty much the only one who knows how to screen for our guys properly and when to cut to the rim to create space. Otherwise it’s just iso after iso.
