    I saw a personality. I see what is being conveyed is that he's not demonstrative. A lot of demonstrative people have no personality and are just attention-seeking sheep. You need better understanding of reality.

    "No personality?" Maybe not a strong one, or an outgoing one, but certainly has one.

    May just be figuring out his confidence. Instead of getting to play last year and growing his skills on the court and the demeanor to go with that, that was skipped. Now he is the younger player on a roster led by a Top-75 player who is a monster figure in the locker room. It may take him some time to find his feet. I'll take a silent assassin if not.

    I didn’t think the rookies still did the rookie duties ever since @THE HCP started doing the rookie duties.

    Because this kid is special. He's the most athletically gifted guy in this draft, he has the right body type and he has every skill a player needs to be the best in the league. So I actually think he'll contribute big to wins this year because Chauncey will let him, unlike Stotts.

    It also seems that at least a little bit he steered himself to the team he wanted to play with, and the team leader he wanted to play with, to give himself the best chance to succeed.

    Anyone else notice (and sorry if someone else did and posted about it) how he doesn't move his legs at all when he jumps up for a shot?

    As long as it goes in, I don't care nor does it matter though.

    It's exciting to see what Jabari has to say about him in the article. It's also nice to read his quotes, he seems like a humble guy and if he can just learn from guy like Dame and Josh Hart, really special things could happen really quickly.

    Kid is essentially just out of high school. Wonder how many of us would be comfortable in front of a mic and tv camera at that age, esp when we haven’t been on the main stage in a year.

    Gimme a break.

    Brandon Williams #8
    Trendon Watford #2


    I expect big things for Watford this year. I think he pops as a Draymond style small ball big.
