    Nobody, including the broadcast team, talks about just how much better of a shooter he is than expected - he's shooting 43% from 3! This facet of his game is simply huge for him as he wouldn't fit nearly so well in the starting lineup without it.

    And 59% from 2...he picks his spots really, really well. Will be interesting in the coming couple years to see if he can come close to maintaining that while his usage inevitably increases

    You could probably say that he wouldn't even be in the starting lineup.....

    Then, I just love the way he attacks ballhandlers on D - not just disrupting what they're trying to do, but often coming up with the ball and generating a break the other way.

    Interestingly, it's his power game that needs some refinement - what to do in the post, going up strong, not double-pumping, etc.

    Again, everyone assumed this would be a guy that would take years to get his 3-ball in working order, and he's right there out of the gates. It kind of baffles me that Matt, Leo, and Jack act are so ho-hum about it.

    Let’s see how he handles the back to back today. He’s been a revelation this year. Have we finally solved our starting small forward problem?

    It is still special to me. He's hitting it, but he still needs to improve his follow trough, I think. He will definitely be a great shooter sooner than later. Averaging 43% on his first 65 attempts of his career... Like... seriously?

    I do think that it also has a link with how the ball is moving well this year and how he is able to be in the good spots to get the ball. It plays a lot into a %, maybe just as much as the form!

    Finally figured it out. Ron Artest, that's who he reminds me of on the court. Except he's WAY ahead of young Ron with his jumpshot and has the exact opposite demeanor.

    Reminds me of a certain San Antonio spur who had all the maturity and defensive tools, but shooting was a question mark Pre nba.

    He's got a lot going for him.. but if he ever develops his handles the kid is going to be a star. Hope he gets a chance to work out with the guy DD worked out with a few years back.

    Artest is a good comparison though. Ariza is another one.

    I still don't know why Draymond isn't the go-to comparison - leadership skills?

    Personally I don't see the passing yet that Draymond has in his arsenal.

    I don't see OG barking at his teammates like Draymond. So yeah leadership skills, passing and ball handling

    You guys have to remember that Draymond and Kawhi were both great on the glass. Literally double OG's rebound rate. That's why I said Artest, similar type of defender with the length and insane lower body strength, not much of a rebounder. Solid passer and very good on ball defender.
