    I think the real question that needs to be asked is who is going to make the Jusef Nurkic FU Tour 2017 thread and why hasn't @Strenuus made it yet????

    Guys, I wasn't wishing serious injury on Nurk. I'm basically saying there's no way he can possibly suffer a serious injury. I mean, after all the previous injuries to Blazers centers, what are the odds? It's just not possible for it to happen again. Nurk's going to be just fine. I honestly believe we've kicked the curse and any vengeful gods.

    I was really happy Nurkic had a good first game. This should help his confidence in himself and in the belief that a new team will help him turn it around. Hopefully the realization from his Denver experience that success isn't guaranteed, combined with his new chance, will give him the motivation to work really hard at getting in shape and improving his skills.

    Mark this prediction down: Josuf Nurkic will win the 17-18 Most Improved Player award

    Agreed - I just hope it doesn't lead to us winning games this season. :)

    Things he does in that video that are incredibly refreshing:
    BLOCK SHOTS!!!
    Nifty spin moves.
    Hits a long jumper.
    That touch pass to Crabbe basically the first time he got the ball on offense.
    Knock people over like ninepins.

    BUT on the other hand, he was very rude. He made the rest of the Blazers look EXTRA bad by comparison.

    This might sound crazy, and I'm admittingly a Nurkic homer, but when he's at his best, his game reminds me of Cousins. I've heard the Marc gasol comps, but Nurkic is more physical, like cousins.
