Reminds me of you when we played in Sanford. Minus the form, mobility and athleticism.Last night was pretty much the whole Chriss experience in a nutshell.
Made some threes, show good mobility and athleticism, but at the same time played with low effort and worse awareness with several boneheaded mental errors.
He clearly has legitimate NBA talent, his jumper form is pretty good and he can run and jump. But you wonder if he’s ever going to have a breakthrough mentally. His BBIQ is just so low.
We do have his Bird Rights. I'd guess they are hoping to re-sign him at a low price to a shorter "prove yourself" contract for probably two years with a third year option. Should give them the option to keep him if the new coach can get through to him or flip him to a team after December next season.He is an expiring. We would have to sign him to a new contract
I think he was just hot from 3 pt range last night. He is career 30% 3 pt shooter but it would make sense for Houston to make him work on his 3 point shot all year.He looks like one of the very few guys on the current roster who can knock down a three pointer with any consistency.
On a team that's rebuilding from scratch the way we are, I don't understand why so many people here seem to have already written him off.Yep. He also moves well without the ball. If only we didn't have ballhandlers who were committed to keeping the ball at all costs.
I think most of us are trying not to get our hopes up. People also say he is the dumbest player of all time. He secured a loose ball last night so lazy with one hand that they just looked it away again.On a team that's rebuilding from scratch the way we are, I don't understand why so many people here seem to have already written him off.
I guess the thinking is, players never get any better or smarter than what they show themselves to be at the age of 20, 21. Guys like Sexton and Chriss will always be who they are right at this minute, and will never develop. I just don't understand that way of thinking.
I think we saw some good ball movement last night when Love was in the game. I actually wanted Nik Stauskas to stay because at least we would have a willing spot up shooter and hopefully would improve ball movement. I know Stauskas isn't a great 3 pt shooter but he probably would have been average and that would have at least developed better habits in our guards.Yep. He also moves well without the ball. If only we didn't have ballhandlers who were committed to keeping the ball at all costs.
