    Well, we already know that the "Gary vs. Precious starting" debate is going into overdrive, literally 1 second after tip-off. lol. Are you looking forward to that?

    so here is the thing when I say biyombo hands its because biyombo had trouble with his free throws and his ability to finish around the basket if it wasn't a dunk. This describes Precious ... for at minimum 3/4 of the year if you are being honest. Early on he even had trouble catching the damn ball at times.


    now am I saying he = biyombo.. obviously not
    I think Precious' first 30 games or so for us you are spot on. But we've seen a lot of basketball from him since then and I don't think the comparison holds up given the progress we saw.

    Precious D is great but I dont trust him under pressure. Hes a guy that will miss a huge gimme when it counts in the playoffs. I thought it was gonna happen last playoffs but he did do an 0-2 from the stripe in the dying minutes of the elimination game. Hope Im wrong but Im worried

    Why i prefer Gary over him closing games

    Not saying he was better but its attitude and confidence when it counts. Bismack had that in spades

    Precious is nothing like Biyombo and his stone hands. Precious can catch at a decent rate. He has to work on the shooting but there's been plenty of positive signs there. He's very young still, but has already shown way more than Biz.

    I was very critical of hands-of-stone Achiuwa early and I feel tightly so, I was of OG too, a real lack of polish/finish from each of them even as rookies. OG has come along slowly, still not a finished product (I hope) and Achiuwa progressed last season from horr-awful to decent. To my mind, he has a higher ceiling than OG offensively and I think will be given more rein to develop that aspect of his game. tbh, Pascal Scotty and Fred aren't the cocky A+ ball handlers we need either but collectivelyt get it done.

    Yes, this.

    Precious is being developed as a Center and is not being developed to be Siakam, which is what started this whole back and forth.
    I think the point being made was that the Raptors might want Precious to continue to develop his off the dribble game, and think he has the upside to be a primary shot creator like Siakam has become.

    I disagree entirely with that premise, but I don't think it has anything to do with who is guarding who on the defensive end. We already know Precious is a very switchable high impact defender.

    I think what that means is on the defensive side.
    Precious will be guarding the opponent's centers, so he is our center.

    Man, it’s really hard to get people out of the positions box.
