We’ve got him locked up for $2.7M next season. This was the shrewdest move of our offseason.

Dude makes losing Bradley somewhat palatable, still wish we have him instead of JR Waiters


We don’t have anyone like Bradley who can attack the lead ball handler but Caruso is decent enough. I also wish Bradley is here and let KCP do his usual role but the play of Caruso has mitigate his impact. I think Caruso will get better at his playmaking ability and that’s why I rather have our team spend the MLE on a big wing defender who can shoot.

Poor Dreamshake, soon enough that average player will have more rings then his head coach and 2 "star" players combined.

Record this onto tape. Melt the tape into liquid. Inject it in my veins.

One of the most underrated players in the NBA. Yes, underrated.

High basketball IQ.


AC makes his share of bonehead moves on both sides of the ball - particularly with his passing decisions. The saving graces are his motor and his attitude. When he screws up, (even if he drops his head) he runs back and tries to make a play. He keeps on moving and keeps on working, which is the way to have a 10-year career.

This. Dude is too spotty at the FT line and almost every look he gets from beyond the arc is wide open. He doesn't need to be Steve Kerr, but 35% from beyond the arc and 80% from the FT line are benchmarks he should hit.

Everyone makes bonehead plays, even Lebron and AD.

What I mean by it is the guy knows how to play the game. Lebron/AD and the coaching staff trust him to be on the court in any situation and he’s been part of the closing lineup a lot this season.

Greatest comeback in NCAA history. Alex Caruso & Danuel House led the Aggies in a Double Overtime win. Down 12 with about 44.3 seconds left.

Not sure I see this comparison. I'd love it if AC could run the PnR like JJ, though. That would open up a lot for the team.

I remember waiting...and waiting... and was going to be pretty ticked if we lost him. But I think it was just a timing thing with the other free agents.

Love AC's story. Worked his butt off in the G-League to get that contract...and is working for a bigger one in the future.

That’s one of the thing that irked me when we signed Daniels and Cook first and I did not care about the timing because we also signed KCP before him after 2 disappointing overpaid season. . I knew he can outwork both of them ( Daniels and Cook) on our rotation. I also believed he will become a better playmaker and shooter with experience.

I feel like he’s a guy we can bank on continuing to improve. He’s shown steady improvement in the last couple years and clearly puts in the work.

Yeah, but Fish came in with Kobe. 😞
