    This dude had the GROAT on his team last year. Instead of studying or adding a Kawhi Leonard in between game he's going to add a DeRozan shake and fadeaway? that sure is going to win you a lot of playoff games.
    He's got a pull up 3, off the dribble 3, spin move, floater, and he can get to the rim almost at will. Add a midrange shot (preferably not a fadeaway but he seems to be leaning into that, pun not really intended) and he becomes nearly unguardable. Obviously, all those shots I listed are at various levels of work in progress, but they are there and with time on the floor they will improve. The midrange shot will be one we have to watch for.

    Also, if Demar could shoot and defend like Pascal, his midrange shot would be a lot more useful.

    • DD’s fade-away, at Pascal’s size, looks a lot more like Kawhi’s. And even Demar’s gets him to the line.

      • I see no problem with him wanting to develop a Demar fadeaway. The problem with Demar and his fadeaway was he didn't have the 3 point shot to mix in with it and he played no defence. Pascal does both of those things. The midrange fadeaway will just make him almost unguardable. Maybe fadeaway isn't the greatest. A more balanced midrange shot would be better but at his height and position as someone already said it would make it a lot more effective than Demar's.
        I relish negativity and disappointment. It is not healthy. Somebody buy me a pony.

            You can tell which highlights are after the all-star break as he started screaming under the basket much more often.

                siakam kind of comes across as a happy-go-lucky guy but you can't get to the level he has in such short order without some serious internal drive. nice to hear that confirmed from someone who knows him so well, and i don't think he's close to done getting better.

                  • Wonder how much we're going to see Pascal at the 3 to close out this season in bully-ball beast mode. Could be just "pre-season" talk but Nurse is indicating he'll give the Ibaka/Gasol combo a bit more love. Can't remember, did we get a small sample of this already this season?

                    • We're basically about to find out if Pascal can establish himself as a consistent top 10 player. If he can lead the Raps on another deep playoff run, he's right there.

                        We saw Siakam/Gasol/Ibaka in the Sixers series... which was a great look and helped win some critical possessions in that tough series. And earlier this season we saw the Jumbo Lineup, with OG at the 2. Can't wait to see more of this look.
