    I Hope people saw his lateral quickness . He's such a liability on D, really easy to eliminate.

    He needs a lot of work.

    His defensive positioning is ty, he needs to work on that. It's all learning where to be on defense and footwork. That should be easy for him to pick up and comes with experience. If he can defend and knock down open shot he's ready to contribute. The kid got potential

    I say Luka will be fine. This will be his first offseason as a Spur, let's see how hard he works.

    I'd argue Murray's defensive positioning in his rookie year was worse and that was with more minutes. He was a deer in headlights.

    Some improvement in defensive positioning and ball handling will make him an impressive player for a 21 year old next season.

    He didn't look stiff at all. He moved his his feet well and has a good first step. He's just lost and the game hasn't slowed down for him yet. Some of you don't know when watching a game.

    Some of the folks commenting obviously didn't watch the game. Lol.

    Luka is far from being a stiff

    his jumper was encouraging, and he seems to have the potential to be a good defender (on the perimeter), everything else needs a lot of work.

    Those idiots already formed their opinion on him, despite watching him for 5 minutes before yesterday.

    This. I was impressed with his quick feet. And even though he screwed up rotations often, he showed good speed trying to recover. Give him a few years and he could (key word here) be a major asset.

    He made some open shots.
    I'm not super over the moon about the guy, but frankly tall and able to hit open shots is not necessarily something to sneeze at.

    Nah. At least I don't think so. But if he is planning to grow at all, he could surpass him pretty quickly.

    He looks A LOT like Eubanks in that you can see where they have an amazing play in their minds and the potential to make it happen, but inexperience prevents him from pulling it off. Luka is developing a spin move in the post that looked like it could be surefire once he's out of his awkward fawn stage.

    I watched luka since a long time ago, in Europe the Scouts who knows more about him than us said that he is lazy, with a bad feel for the game plus he was a bad defender.

    Im a spurs fan so I Hope he will be good but actually I think he id far from ready. His motor and his D are big questions for me.

    The Spurs as a team have been routinely getting burned for 130 points and now everyone wants to talk about Luka's D. Stop hating. He had a nice first game scored 16 points. 50% shooting 75% from three.

    I didn't dislike him on the court. He looked raw, but I think if he had to, he could play a stretch-four role on the team next year. He's not a starter with his lack of girth, but if Gay gets traded, it'd make sense to give Luka his spot in the rotation.

    I don't see any point in trashing Sam to pump up anyone else. I want him to succeed and am happy he wasn't a huge failure last night. Does that mean he was the right pick? We'll see. Last night was a reason to hope, not evidence of truth. Still, I'm happy to go into the summer thinking all of the Spurs recent first-rounders can at least hang in the NBA. Even Metu was all right, even though I wouldn't miss him if the team moves on.

    Excuse me but thats a baaad opinion with no argument.

    He is the highest pick for the spurs since Duncan and leonard.

    We juste exchange about what he is now and what he could be. Stop with "the hate"....

    Define lil bita time. 5 or 6 years
    In 2 or 3 years when he is still 2 years away people are going to be wishing we picked one of the older rookies or Bazley.

    He looks like a designated sniper. If he can become more, so much the better.

    How can you say this? He looked good yesterday for being his first NBA game.

    Because he's so obviously raw that when this team might actually be compe ive again this team will definitely wish it had something better than a poor man's Ilyasova.

    and he's not even a good shooter. his form looks natural enough, but he's only a 30% 3 point shooter in the gleague. wasn't a high% shooter overseas either... usually upper 20's, low-mid 30's

    he hit 3-5 yesterday, sure, but he's far from a sniper
