Moving on…

Too soon to call Zion must-see TV?


After the game:

Zion and the media.JPG


“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

“He’s continuing to grow and it’s going to be a fun season for them and him. The sky’s the limit for this kid” – Barnes

“He’s a team first guy” – Sedano

Coach K issues statement supporting California’s fair pay to play act




Second Half

First impression of Westbrook-Harden duo?
Westbrook: 13 points in 21 minutes | Harden: 34 points in 27 minutes


“The cool thing now is not the Knicks” – Durant

Via Hot 97 (New York):

Is KD right about the Knicks not being cool?


“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

“I’m happy just to see him out there smiling and playing. I’m hoping that this fresh start in Orlando gives him a new shine of light and he just goes out there and plays” – Barnes

“Orlando needs him. They could use a star in that town and he’s got star potential” – Sedano

“Not to make an entire country mad but…yes! I do agree. Largely because Anthony Davis, from a skill perspective, is better than Giannis. But this is what hurts AD: Being a post [player]. It’s a guard’s world now” – Ogwumike

“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
