    The way he's been playing so far could get him into that 2nd or 1st all-nba team, which would mean a 30% max not a 25%. Hope he slows his roll just a tad (only half kidding).

    Fith in the league in scoring and 27th in rebounding. Anyone that claims to have predicted this midway through last season better have documented proof, 'cause I'll accuse you of lying. Maury's right. His midrange game is blowing up. It has gotten to where I am surprised when he misses one of those or an above the break three.

    The way he's pulling up whenever he wants for mid-range jumpers and long-threes... I can't help but think of Kawhi when he does this. But he's more explosive than Kawhi. I wouldn't say he can get to the rim better than Kawhi, but he can blow-by guys easier. If he can keep this up he's a legit top 10 guy.
    Not only that, there is a major aspct of his game : being able to finish with both hands.

    Last night's performance was... wow.

    The way he called off everyone and just drained a 3 in the 3rd quarter was icing on the cake.

    I do see him becoming a super star. But then again, what do I know

    Just as an experiment, while Pascal is double-teamed, I'd like to see him on the floor with Lowry, FVV and Thomas at the same time on the perimeter. It would start raining pretty quick.
    Well, by the look of things the Celtics are committed to Hayward-Tatum-Brown-Walker, so Pascal is going to see one of Hayward or Tatum. Theoretically, that's a good matchup for Toronto....

    I think we'll start to see them Friday. Celtics are very familiar with Siakam and what he can do. Gentry is managing a large rotation and a new roster in New Orleans with a lot of young guys - I think his focus is a little different re defense in that he just needs to get them to play solid team defense. Boston will come after Pascal.

    These are some nice under the radar players who could be good:
    Montrez Harrell
    Jusuf Nurkic
    Mitchell Robinson
    Thomas Bryant
    Richaun Holmes
    Are the top 2 really under the radar? They already are good..

    I'm not sure who will be the primary defender on Siakam, but he should have a size advantage on anyone Boston can send at him, if not a quickness advantage.

    Thomas Bryant is my choice, but he's already getting early MIP hype like Pascal was last year. Wiz aren't letting him go anywhere.

    I'll continue your list by throwing a complete dartboard of names out there:

    Malik Beasley
    Aaron Gordon
    Willy Hernangomez
    Bodgan Bogdanovich
    Skal Labissiere
    Kris Dunn
    Dragan Bender
    Markelle Fultz
    Josh Jackson
    Dwane Bacon

    This game 1 Pascal is a version I wasn't expecting to see right out of the gate. 34 pt, 18 rebounds, and 5 assists along with a couple of blocks? Hope he doesn't burn out :-)

    The double teams are going to start by next week. Open shots for everyone else on the floor with him.

    Any thoughts on who could be the next guy to be plucked off a roster and break out for a new team?
    Stanley Johnson
