All I've seen of Markky was shown on Sportstalk and it was an impressive clip. The writers were all impressed...as was I. It's not unrealistic for the guy to get FREQUENT dbl/dbls. :wink:

Another double double for the kid. 14 and 12.

Barkley and the guys on TNT just said that he reminded them a little of a young Dirk when he first came in the league

I know Atlanta stinks but it was nice to see a bad Bulls team with a lot of guys missing still pull out a W.

He's good. I might eat crow on this guy too. He's just like Porizkingas of the Knicks except he rebounds as well.

But doesn't have the rim protecting or post game of Porzingis yet.

ok, alrighty then.

It's not just about how good he is...it's a question of whether they could have done better.

Done better at #7 or done better in the Butler return? Because in terms of draft selection status, Markkanen as of now clearly looks like the right pick at that slot.

I wanted them to get Fox, so higher slot.

At least they didn't draft Malik Monk as many armchair GM's were slobbering all over his dick.

I saw a pic on twitter last night showing that through their first 35 games Markkanen is way ahead of Dirk in stats, but cant find it this morning to post it here. Obviously the kid has a long way to go to be Dirk. But real nice to see him surprise so many people. The kid can play.

Dirk and Rick Carlisle have both stated how impressed they are with him

Dirk "I didn't know he was really that athletic. I mean, he shoots it easy, can move his feet, can play above the rim. He's going to be great for a long, long time."

Carlisle “Terrific. Every projection that said he would be a really effective stretch-4 from the outside and be able to hurt people on switches from the inside was accurate. He’s probably ahead of where most reasonable expectations were. 7-foot guys from foreign countries that can make shots from everywhere (will) get compared to Dirk Nowitzki. That’s a fact of life. It’s pretty clear he’s been a practitioner of a lot of what he’s seen out of Dirk. Terrific player, future all-star.”

All Lauri needs is to grow some NBA balls. It's a bitch of a transition from battling all white Euro teams to this rough, crazy talented league. Give the guy time. Fuck Dirk...this kid could be the next Jerry Lucas, only taller. :wink:

Let’s temper the hype. Dirk is an all time great player.

my official prediction is that he will mysteriously and suddenly forget how to play basketball sometime in the next 24 months.

I’d love to see him get a chance at the 3 point contest this year.
