He could also fukk around and up like Rose

He probably will. He throws his body at defenders and the ground for fouls. He’s too frail to last like that.

AI was even smaller and lasted a decade. Being lighter is going to benefit him. Rose was 20-30 pounds heavier and that extra weight in addition to the torque he played with is why he blew out his knee. Ja will be fine..

Baron... Francis.... Marbury.... Iverson... Rose...

They all end up the same tbh... plagued with injuries in their late 20s, washed or out the league by their very early 30s.
Stevie and Stephon were done by 30 and 31, Baron by 32. AI lasted longer but 33 and 34 were disasters.

Rose was fed up and ready to retire at 29 (CLE) but reinvented himself as a role player journeyman, became the best shooter out of all of them.

That's what Morant (23) will inevitably face. The more he improves his jump shot and sticks with the Tony Parker floater game, the better off he'll be 5-6 yrs from now.

It’s interesting the difference between the two conferences so far. The West seems completely wide open with no one separating themselves from the rest of the pack

In the East, I think a healthy Boston & Milwaukee are clearly a level above everyone else. Cleveland is gonna win a lot of games but I think they’re similar to the Grizzlies last season. Elite regular season team but not ready to seriously contend in the playoffs
