Every game makes me more and more impressed with what Isaiah Stewart is doing on the court. He’s rebounding better, maintaining some excellent efficiency as a big man who takes advantage of second-chance opportunities and easy looks, and he’s showing increasingly solid footwork and range on his jump shot. I’m not sure what he can be long term, but he’s already a good player who could grow into something more. Add that to Saddiq’s two way effectiveness, Killian’s vision and defense, and Frank Jackson and Tyler Cook always managing to find ways to Do Stuff (tm), and it’s a fun team to watch. So let’s watch it together!
