I dunno about rotation... maybe just another big body with Steven Adams getting big minutes tonight. Channing Frye will probably be the backup center now? Anyway, hope Zu kills it tonight, no matter how much he plays.

Rooting for Zu, promising to see the effort is there. Body is still a long way away but he's got the soft touch and natural size

If we don't get Brook back we need to keep Zu just for his size.

He is and he still has noodle legs and moves like molasses.


Be careful, such imprudent comments can come back and haunt you.

In my years of watching NBA, if I got a 20 year old 7 footer with length, that's shown a soft touch, who is locked up on a cheap deal and has shown the cajones to go straight at Steven Adams, I'd be throwing all my support behind the guy . Noodles legs or not.

I hope he starts to look better, to me he looks less awkward out there and a bit better on the boards, but has lost his touch completely. He doesnít appear to have added anything to his game and actually regressed a bit.

Zu had pretty good game tonight, on both ends of floor. He was aggressive and played nicely within flow of offense, on defense he was active and big presence in paint. That second unit looked sharp in 4th and he was big part of it.

We forget how good Zu was last year. Tonight he showed signs but he still doesnt have his rhythm. Sad to see Nance go but hopefully it opens up a spot for Zu in the rotation.

If for nothing else, build that trade value.

Just a reminder of how good Zu was last year

He had a clean block that was called a foul. I think he did a decent job on Adams.

Decent game by Zubac tonight. Looks like he may see some more time with Nance gone.

I hope he will get some PT but I doubt it. When Frye comes in he will get these minutes because of shooting. Luke likes players who can shoot.

Haters gonna hate- Noodle legs? He looked good to me out there. Blocking shots, dunking- hitting free throws?! Future Hall of Famer Zubac is back!

Liked his dunk but he's been looking good in G-League all year with improvements to his body, explosiveness, etc. Just hard to show when you barely get play time on the main roster or sparse minutes here or there.

But the other night he played consistent and got into a rhythm and showed the signs of why people were so excited about him.

You know, before they all turned on the 19 year old for not having a great Summer League despite the myriad of other personal things going on in his life.

Solid performance the other night, hope he's able to build on it.

As long as Zu continues to challenge at the rim, play defense and run IMO he deserves playing time for the remainder of the season; even if it cuts into a portion of Lopez's playing time.
