    He just needs practice shooting. Then pump fakes and hes set. The bbiq/defensive awareness will come with experience

    If he were able to develop a pull up mid range jumper it would really open up how offensive game. As well, he should work on off the dribble jumpers in general, whether thatís from the mid range or from 3. Wether he can actually work those shots into his game or not is another question but if he were able to he would be a far more complete offensive player. We saw a pull-up jumper last game it was very nice to see.

    Another good read on Pascal from the Morning Coffee. This was a stat I liked

    "Lowry and Leonard have also been completely different players in the minutes they've shared with Siakam, with Lowry's offensive rating improving by 7.1 points per 100 possessions and Leonard's by 11.4."

    I predicted in the game thread at the half that Siakam would set a new personal best. Little did I know that he wouldn’t take any shots in the fourth. Lo and behold he set a personal best in rebounds.

    The way he is growing you could predict he's going to set a personal best every game and be correct 30% of the time.

    Easily an all star this year.

    The Hawks team that won 60 games a few years ago had 4 all stars on their team. Why can't the Raptors have 3? and Siakam btw is more than deserving.

    I agree that Siakam has been playing at an all-star level for us.

    I want to see play at the all-star game for more than just that reason, though. I'm not sure that he can turn his motor down enough to not run circles around the Sunday-afternoon-snoozefest pace of an ordinary all-star game. That's the sort of thing which should make the ASG much more entertaining to watch than usual.

    I'm still a bit skeptical about Pascal as it pertains to handing him a big contract. He fits in really well right now, but if Kawhi walks then teams can start paying more attention to him. His skills are...rudimentary still and he doesn't have a particularly high basketball IQ or great defensive awareness. When to the Raptors have to make him an offer by?
    I think some of your critisisms are exactly why he should ask for a huge contract. He has turned his athletic ability (with a decent skillset) into genuine production and impact. A year or two of developing skills and we could be talking about all nba rather than all star.
