    Would we be viewed as a team to beat if we had DeRozan as the second/third option to Pascal?
    Nope.

    Not sure if this has been talked about much around here, but if Masai does take a swing at Giannis in free agency and if he's successful, could there be any possible drawback to pairing Siakam and Giannis? Does Giannis move to C or does Siakam move to SF? Are their games too similar and would they crowd each other on offense?
    I assume they would focus more on developing Siskams outside game. His strength is finishing around the rim and running the floor. His mid range and 3 would have to get better for then to be the perfect match.

    The way things are heading by 2021 Giannis may be an over sized center

    Got to temper the Siakam expectations a bit. He's getting compared to Kawhi and Giannis in this thread. This is his first year as the leading scorer, Kawhi and Giannis weren't the players they are now for several years. It takes time. Siakam's progress has been amazing.

    I agree with the goals, just need more patience in the timeline expectations.

    This is actually a great situation for him to develop in with some vets around him and a winning environment. Very similar to how Kawhi was brought along in San Antonio.
    Exactly. Kawhi became elite in year 6, all world in year 8. Giannis became elite in year 5, all world in year 6. Pascal is in year 4 and better (offensively) than Kawhi was in year 4 and basically right where Giannis was.

    Not saying he'll become either one of them, but anybody freaking out over a few quiet games is a little impatient to the process.

    I’ve been a huge fan of Kyle Lowry but I have to say that the Nova alum should realize now I mean now that this is already Pascal’s team. The only way Siakam fully develop is to give him the ball and expose him in high pressure situations.

    We may not win it all but if this franchise is investing on no.43, Nick Nurse and Kyle Lowry have to buy in and fully trust the Cameroonian for richer and poorer. Let him bring the ball downcourt when it matters most and let him make the right decisions.

    I actually really like how they are developing Siakam. He's already proven he can be a 2nd option on a championship team which alone is pretty amazing considering how long he's been playing basketball.

    He may never be a leader in the way Lowry is, but he definitely has to add more to his game before he can be a #1 on a contender. I'd love to see him develop a pull up jumper. The best players on offense have that in their bag of tools.

    I've been sayin this since day 1. Why are they not running the offence through him? If we still had Kawhi last night or even DeRozan I'm pretty sure the offence would run through them specially in the 4th, no?

    Second, Siakam needs to assert himself more specially in CRUNCH TIME. It's like he didn't even want the ball.

    POTW and POTM is pretty dumb. They have a formula. They look for the best teams.. so teams with the best records. We have won 7 straight so are a pretty good candidate in the East. Then they look at the "best player" from that team and usually go by box score numbers.

    Pascal beat Giannis basically. No other Eastern team was on a long enough winning streak.

    I know right? Crazy.

    Pascal was pretty good for a not very good week.

    I guess his 35pts yesterday helped to bump up his stats, along with that 15 rebound outing he had a couple games back.

    His shooting was pretty egregious the first two of four games but the next two he’s been above 40% from 3. His efficiency has returned.

    Dame on the other hand averaging 52.7pts, 9.3A, 7.3reb?!??!? Now that’s an extra spicy week.

    Happy for Pascal though... a nice vote of confidence when it’s looked like his confidence had been a little low.
