Defense: Porzingis protects the rim, Julian chases forwards on the perimeter

Offense: Porzingis spaces the floor, Julian bullies people under the basket


They complement each other really realy good.


Malcolm Brogdon
Luka Doncic
Dorian Finney-Smith
Julius Randle
Kristaps Porzingis

That's my dream lineup, perfect fit. I hope Dallas doesn't go all in on Vucevic (doesn't fit the timeline, expensive).

I really like his attacking and that he does not settle, but bullies himself around the paint. So rare these days. I also think he will be great in the Mavs offense where Rick Rick Carlisle makes the players move a lot and a lot of motion around the top key.

But how is his defense? How good is he at guarding small forwards?
How much money will he get offered?

He's p average at defense, altho he switches well onto perimeter players. Probably looking at 15m-20m a year with the cap going up.

Tim Duncan and KG were called forwards but they did everything you would want a center to do. They can call Randle their center and it won't really matter.

Centers don't actually exist any longer. Not in any meaningful quantity.

PF & C are virtually the same exact thing on the court in today's NBA.

Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, Nikola Jokic, & Boogie Cousins are probably the four best bigs in the league that are healthy and they all shoot threes on a regular basis. They aren't true centers. Embiid SHOULD be a true center but Philly opts not to use him that way.

PF & C labels are almost as meaningless nowadays as differentiating between a PG and a SG.

You're a retard. KG was never a Centre and played nothing like one.

And Randle is garbage.
