    He's got the ideal game for old players - fundamentals and obsessively honing a few go-to skills, never dependent on speed or athletic ability. He's like the old guy on the playground that keeps beating all the youngsters by making every shot, always getting himself open, and defending with leverage, positioning and a few sly tricks

    Major concern for people his age is injury and Pop does an excellent job managing his workload while having great fun trolling the league and the fans

    I've only seen 2 or maybe 3 Pelican games and he was looking like the ROTY Evans again, dude was driving at will and sinking crazy shots.

    Wade looks totally befuddled that someone stole his move and actually covered more ground with it

    I wish you'd post the whole clip so you can see the buildup, that choppy, low res, ADHD vine stuff doesn't cut it.

    Regardless, that kid has the body to be a super-superstar. Look at those legs, they're like a foot longer than anyone in this photo. If he develops to his capacity, he's going to be the first 7 footer in history that can play 5 positions effectively.

    Here, res not much better, but at least now you see he took the ball coast to coast:

    And this was also demonstrative of his length. He dunked Bosh from a long way out.

    That third clip (dunk on bosh) is outstanding. He's like the perfect combo of long & lean with a natural grace to his movement.

    When did the Greek Freak start playing basketball?

    I dunno about price over Lin, but Ed Davis has definitely earned more PT

    He was late to the game, I believe around 14 or 15.
