Too soon to call Zion must-see TV?
After the game:
“Never too soon. He was must see in college, must see in high school, so might as well in the NBA be must see TV. We should really have dunks on the stat sheet because Zion changes the game in that regard. This is must see basketball just because he is different” – Ogwumike

“Absolutely. It’s been that way for a while. It’s ‘What have you done for me lately’ and it hasn’t been the Knicks. Until they get a new owner, they’re going to stay in the toilet” – Barnes
“The culture is there in Brooklyn. There’s a different vibe over there” – Ogwumike
Impressed by Fultz in preseason thus far?
Scored 8 points off the bench for the Magic vs Pistons
“I’m not even watching necessarily the jumper so much, I’m just looking at how he moves. What is his confidence level? He’s looking like the athletic guard we saw and came to love at Washington” – Ogwumike

Rich Paul says AD is better than Giannis: Agree?

“I agree with him and it’s not a knock on Giannis. AD doesn’t have a hole in his game” – Barnes
“Anthony Davis doesn’t have any flaws” – Sedano
