Loooool ! I didn't expect him to play that well so early. I hope he'll continue his effort during this season. Around 14-15 pts and 10 boards !!! ROY !!!
He should easily win rookie of the year.
I think the regular season is a different beast than the preseason. I think he showed a lot in the preseason about how physically gifted he is. If he wants to be a productive 15ppg guy his rookie season he's going to have display more skills there won't be 8-10 gimme baskets a night like there was during the preseason.
Although with all the hype coming in and after a very successful 1st preseason 9.8 seems kind of low. Maybe on a team with more offensive minded players. But on this team he should average at least 11.8.
