I watched much of that 76er/Thunder game. Made me shudder, the obvious body discomfort which JoJo is experiencing. They say he can barely practice most weeks, and spends hours on the massage table. Yet he plays like a behemoth. Remarkable talent for a guy who has spent so little time on the practice and game court since he picked up a basketball. The Kansas connection makes of him a real joy to watch. Not much of an NBA fan or follower, I always try to tune in to 76er contests. Simmons, too, is an extraordinary young talent.
@kjayhawks Yeah, Joel is amazing. I went to the first game that year with the intentions of being blown away by Wiggins. Instead I couldn’t take my eyes off of Embiid. He is truly a transcendent talent if some guy like me can see it from day one!
If Embiid stays healthy, we will look back on the era of GS and Cleveland the way we do the 1950-1956 in the NBA. There were great players in that era, but there were no super centers like Big Russ and Wilt.
Looks like your connection to KU Buckets was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
