Just finished breaking down almost every team's rookies preseason games. My Take:

Recommended Posts

Zion is legit AF.  I don't think we've ever seen a player like him before. When he hits his prime he may be the first player ever to score 30ppg on 60% shooting from the floor.

Culver is looking fine to me, playing better than say, Reddish.

He played very well yesterday. He didn't in game 1. I made this thread yesterday afternoon. He played in the evening. That said, he didn't look as good as Cam in combo of both games for me.

Zion going right at Gobert and scoring with ease. He's a beast.

Someone laughed at my suggestion Zion could average 30 ppg on 60% shooting. Well he's averaging 31 pp36m on 71% shooting so far in preseason. Most 20-year-old players you hear things like, "it's still early he'll adapt to the NBA game with time. It's just preseason, give him time" with Zion it's more like "wait until the NBA learns how to guard him". Like I said, he's going to be a generational player no question about it.

I tried to dismiss Zion, mostly out of sour grapes because we missed him by one ping pong ball, but he is special. There's no denying it.

Agreed.

It's not even close after 3 games right now. Culver in the last two has been playing his game and well and Cam has been as well and poorly. You can't shoot 3/10 on open three pointers. 

For perspective:

Len is shooting 38% on open threes.

Damian Jones is shooting 50% on open threes. 

 

You must be able to play your game and play it well.

I still like both of them very much. I think we have a Trae/Luka thing here with these two where they will both thrive. I don’t put any stock into preseason games. Just try to see how players move on the court and if it’s fit for a pro game.

Ya I saw the first game Supes where they played the warriors, Culver went 6/17 or 6/18, he was still making the right reads and passes. Killer Cam is also feeling his way. Nothing surprising I guess.

Right now on offense, Cam is Riley Freeman. Everything looks great except the execution.

Lol very fitting at the end when Riley says that’s all you get for free? (Preseason)
