Maybe we make a trade deadline deal and then he comes in hungry and ready to fight for minutes.
Seems like he's dominating with his size mostly, but I like his physicality. He needs to work on his leg mobility. He's got strangely stiff looking hips.
He has a nice looking stroke. Quick, compact release. He rebounds well, he is very long, and he brings a ton of energy. He can run protect as well.
The issue is his lateral speed sucks. Is that due to his stiff looking hips you noticed? We can't switch with him. He is awful at guarding smaller players.
I think he is am end of the bench rotation guy. Has some upside, thiugh.
Yeah there's some weird gait characteristics. I'll have my wife look at it too. From what I'm seeing he needs an overhaul in the weight room. More focus on his core, balance, hips, and legs.
What the **** was that technical for on the last dunk?? He barely looked at him. Taunting? Now .... maybe he said, "Yo Mama", then I could see that but didn't look like it. I like the big guy and what he brings. Hell maybe a steal as well and as good or better a pick than Josh Hart for over all impact? Love Hart's intangibles and defense but so far can't shoot. Bryant seems like decent "Big" defender and can score the ball and has that great stroke for a big dude.
I feel like a lot of big guys look stiiff coming out of college especially being 19. Hell learn.
He could end up being a valuable cheap bench big in the years to come if the big free agent plan works out and we have to skimp at the end of the bench.
Never hear that from Zu.....
