I remember Vlade's rookie season as a 21 y/o. He replaced Kareem as a starter and showed some ability, but even he was raw.

After 2 seasons, I get the impression Zubac, although not the same type of player, has as much ability as Vlade did in '89. Zu has the advantage of 2 years of NBA experience, so he knows what to expect and what he needs to work on.

Is Zu playing on the Summer League team? If not, he should be.

Zu looks a lot quicker/explosive, but I don't know how good this level of competition is.


If only the rest of the league was made up of Bosnia-Hernzibobinnains.


Hey watch it

But seriously. he looked engaged and determined on those highlights. Hope he comes back with that same attitude.


Seriously he does look dunkier. Taking off from the free throw line!

He still needs more fire in his belly. I hope he can get it.

I trashed him earlier, but his value/fit does get better with Lebron...he could feast on those PnRs. Just needs to continue getting his conditioning up to par and not get clowned on defense.

ZU needs to work on his foot speed and quickness. Just about every other aspect of his game is adequate.

Hope he's ready to claim those nominal starting center minutes especially if Randle isn't retained.

Far as I'm concerned as of right now, Zubac should be our starting center. Watching what he's done in these qualifiers he's definitely about to take the next step.

Agree. He looks in great shape. Ran the floor well in the first video. Dare I say as well or better than Wagner.

He was working out at the Lakers facility before heading off to Intl play so Magic/Pelinka should have seen how he has transformed physically and now they can see how he is playing in actual games.

Agree +1. Zubac should be paired in the Lebron starting lineup for being able to shoot from outside, and he rolls to the basket just fine to get easy buckets. McGee I think would serve much better as the energy guy with the second unit.

I thought he looked painfully bad last year, but I'll be rooting for him. Sophomore slumps happen to the best of them, so I have faith he could be serviceable.

Still seems a little too raw to be starting alongside LeBron James - especially come playoff time, so I fully expect us to bring Brook back.

I believe Zubac mentioned while being interviewed overseas that Magic/Pelinka stated he would get more minutes this coming season.

I hope a minimum of 20 a game.

Also he can shoot the 3 ball. Saw it in g-league, just not many attempts.

Played badly in SL as he was out of shape. Played well 1st half in g-league and 2nd half with Lakers.

3 centers currently on the roster although Wagner could fill in at PF. I just feel Brook would have been signed already if Magic/Pelinka wanted him.
