Yeah he def is. We don't really need Donovan Mitchell anymore. Too many similarities if you ask me. Jaylen Brown would have been perfect.

Naked made a good point about All NBA no longer being positional. Seems kind of like a farce to abandon a time honored NBA tradition but whatever. I don't think JB will make first team- it should be Jokic, Giannis, Tatum, Doncic, SGA. But JB should be a lock for the second team.

This when the “emperor wears no clothes”?

Kudos to you for actually thinking it thru as to whom might be in front.

It was either auto correct or my secret knowledge of your preferred attire (or lack thereof).

I do think Jalen should reach All NBA and for him its a major accomplishment if 2nd or 3rd team!
His timing could be spot on also for the olympic team.
I thought given he started last summer and USA finished 4th it might hurt his return if others wanted in.
Not so sure it was on him though.

His resume is filling out….

HS chips.
NCAA player of the year
2 NCAA Chips
all star
All NBA?
Olympic gold?
If he can make few more All NBA and Allstars his Resume for HOF is filling out.
Add a NBA chip and its a slam dunk!
His winning, not stats would drive it. Its not “NBA HOF”, its Basketball HOF.
Its why Marbury will one day get enshrined. His NBA stats were trending but he fell off fast. What he did winning in China might carry him thru.

I recall that the Knicks had to cough up a second rounder for Jalen but do feel like Durant cost a bit more than that

One is also a decade younger with not so much the injury history

This is bonkers

I don’t think it’s really an outlier statement but I think next season we will see an insane passing version of Brunson.

Bank on it

It just feels palpable to me with how the game is slowing down for him and then his moving cutting passing spacing teammates too.

Man what wizardry is this. I watch this guy as closely as anyone and there are some subtle footwork moves when he really slows down those replays that I have never caught. His balance and subtlety is otherwordly. And this video is just about his dribble and footwork, doesnt even talk about how insane his finishing touch is!

I think some of Brunson's athleticism is underrated and undersold. He's just not built like an NBA player, more like half back or 3rd baseman.

He's very strong, both upper and lower body. He gets his shot off with great quickness. These scoops and floaters are in the air half the time before the defender knows it's a shot. He doesnt give up position on defense, only height. He's short, but he's built like a tank and has great quickness to offset average speed (NBA standards). Clearly alot of his game is taking advantage of his non-traditional NBA build.

He is durable where Murray of Nuggs and Zion have not been. They don't look like NBA guys either.
Put Luka Doncic there also.
Other than Zion, the link is strong fundamentals utilizing their natural body type strength.
