    Who doesn't want to tune in to see a Mitchell-Fox backcourt? That is good basketball. . .

    I notice when he jumps and his momentum moves him sideways he seems to miss. But if he stops and jumps straight up he makes it.

    I get it and agree to a point. I haven’t bought into it quite yet. But the NBA is offensive sided. So I see why you would say those guys are better cause on the offensive side they are. But I still believe overall, both sides, Gobert is better. But your point is well taken. Because in this day and age, those guys are offensive powerhouses and the league is all about that.

    Hey, I was talking Jazz Houston series , not all playoffs. Capela outplayed Rudy in that series - and he is not even top 10 center.

    I was never calling AK perfect player either. He had amazing talent but lacked killer instinct and desire to be the best. Even when Malone was telling him how to destroy opposing players he said he did not like it and wanted just to outplay them.

    No one has said Rudy doesn't have limitations.

    Believe it or not, there is an entire universe to basketball that doesn't involve step-back threes, dream-shakes, or being the fastest player on the court, and Rudy has mastered that universe of fundamental things and it opens up the game for everyone that can shoot a basketball.

    Uhhh. Context ??

    Rudy and for that matter Donovan has been playing with next to zero shooting and no space. I didn’t see Capela catching the ball with 3 players mugging him

    These two tweets seem somewhat contradictory.

    Maybe maybe not. Its quite possible that he hasnt guarded fox much and that whenever he was guarding anyone else his defense was impressive.
    Need more details to know if the tweets contradict or not.

    Mastered? The guy doesn’t have one offensive move. He shot 63.6% from the line. He’s hardly mastered all fundamentals. And I guess one might not consider those things fundamentals but hitting a free throw and having ONE offensive move are basics in basketball in imo.

    Doesn't have an offensive move? A dunk is a move as much as anything else. He is pretty good at those

    But how many times does he set himself up for it? I love me some Rudy but he does not have a single post move where you can just toss the ball down to him and let him create. If he's ever going to take that next step he needs to develop something.

    Why do we want Rudy to play and create from the post? That's not who he is and it's a bad shoot anyway. He would benefit from a floater or a close range shoot when the defense collapse on a roll though
