Potential may be better, but he’s not better than T-Mann. Not yet. You could at times really see Mann’s entire game step up along with his confidence. I could see a legit breakout year from him. Anyone disagreeing is just throwing shade

I could see him averaging 7/4 like he did last year in the regular season.
Just like he averaged in the playoffs.
Or maybe a slight bump if he gets playing time with Kawhi's absence.

The guy got a 39 piece on the Jazz who thought it was a good idea to not guard the corner 3 and Mann got hot for one game. Allowing folks to forget about his other mediocre and subpar games.

Mann may defend better than THT but THT is so much more refined on the offensive end.

Damn, he looks quite a bit different and clearly much more lean. Showing off that hard work, people forget this will be his first actual off season in the NBA.

It's crazy that even if we count the 2 way players THT is still the youngest on the roster going into his third season

I def. don't see Mann being the better overall player either though and that discussion will be completely over by the end of this next season imo.

Somebody sent out a tweet yesterday that said THT would be the Laker's youngest player at summer league this year. I haven't verified it but if true that's crazy.

Remember this preseason game last year. THT destroyed the Clippers for 33 PTS, 10 REBS, 4 AST & 4 STL.

If THT doesn't become a better shooter outside the paint, his ceiling will have dropped a few feet.

That’s absolutely nuts. 3rd year NBA player at that.

Can’t wait to see his improvement this year.

I don't want him playing summer league for some reason
Keep learning and training his skills individually

Is he going to play in the season with any other summer league players?
I posted his stats because this kid has a power frame.
Bron is 5" taller and weighs 250

Let’s hope he learns to shoot, that really elevated Mann’s game.

Bron is closer to 280#.

You make a good point, though.

THT reminds me some of Adrian Dantley. Dantley was listed at 6'5" but was 6'2.5" in bare feet. he was also listed at 210# but was closer to #225. He wasn't much of a jump shooter, but got to the hoop at will and made shots from every angle and through every crevice once he got in the paint, despite always having bigger guys on him. He also made a living at the FT line.

THT on Def
https://youtu.be/1ytbhu7P-iI

Might not be at tall as what you want your wing should be, but that wing span and body strength makes up for those 2 inches. I actually believe it makes him a better defender because the players forget to account for his reach advantage. I feel THT at SF actually works
