    Ermmmm…. I’d be pissed if someone nicknamed me sprinkles but I think these two young fellas have burgeoning camaraderie.

    Someone made a non politically correct joke about Keldon and Sochan’s potential
    chemistry long before we drafted him. Big body and sprinkles

    I do think there is potential in yelling "you've been sprinkled" every time sochan gets a block....the disrespect in that phrase

    ”Jeremy is a freak athlete. Good feel for the game. Lot of the times in the right spots. Can do a little bit of everything. Can guard 1-5. Once he adjusts, he will be really good. On both sides, he’s versatile. He brings the ball up, his offball spacing, his shot is coming along. Has confidence in himself shooting. Since first day he’s been confident in his shot. There are days where he makes a lot.”

    The last sentence stuck out to me.
    "There are days where he makes a lot."
    He's young and have heard nothing, but good things about his love for the game so I'm hopeful he goes from "some days he makes a lot" to just being a consistent shooter.

    He has so much else going for him already.

    Danny Green is a near elite 3 point shooter, career 40% from long, and was really never a consistent shooter. It seemed that he never shot 2/5, but alternated games of 4/5 and 0/5. You make them when you make them. If Sochan gets to a decent %, I’ll live with the hot and cold streaks.

    Jeremy starting is great, not just for Jeremy, but I think it speaks a lot to Pop’s at ude towards the upcoming season, and hopefully, a willingness to change with the times of what his team needs.

    Great but also FFS should we really be patronizing Pop for making sane decisions? It's good he has his head out of his own ass but also he stuck it up there to begin with via baffling rotations and playing half of the team out of position for a 2-3 yr period.

    It only makes sense in a rebuilding team. I’m just glad Pop is taking a different view this year of playing the young group vs vets.

    Sochan is very good defensively, or at least projects that way.

    Offense wasn't really the problem last year, despite issues in various ways.

    Sochan is a yapper. He's a big talker and by most accounts a great locker room guy.

    The Spurs likely see him as a long-term anchor, a future leader, and a guy who won't get weepy when he makes mistakes.

    Translation: We are tanking so we are good if he throws the ball away or bricks shots as long as he gets better over time.

    Yeah. A possible glue guy. Just need the stud to be drafted.

    It's a myth that elite shooters tend to shoot near their average on any given game. Back in the day, I charted all of Green's and Bowen's games and showed that Bowen was significantly more streaky than Green. I don't know if Danny kept that up though. Just looking and relatively random single-season samples (Green's 2013-2014 vs Bowen's 2004-2005) still suggests that Bowen was really streaky and while he had a larger percentage of good games than Green, he had a larger percentage of horrible, 0fer games too. This is true of a guy like Seth Curry during his best whole season of 2019-2020. Curry is doubtless a superior shooter in terms of performance, but he too had a wider variation on his games that season than Green did on his. It just goes to show how narratives can be built around players. Green wasn't particularly streaky -- he just had a larger percentage of his offense dedicated to an innately streaky shot type. He rarely supplemented his work behind the arc with drives and cuts or midrange shots. Sometimes he did, but most of the time he lived or died by the three. We saw how that worked for a team like the D'Antoni Rockets.

    Insofar at it matters in this thread, yeah, it's okay for Sochan to be streaky so long as he brings other parts to his game and isn't selfish. Because of the trajectory of the misses, threes are actually pretty decent shots to rebound off. The offense needs him to take the shots that open for him before it can create better looks for him. If he's taking those shots, then he's doing his job. And if he has games where he cans enough to be a swing-factor, that's just gravy. Danny won multiple games by combining his great defense with a random 18-25 point outburst. If Sochan does anything like that, he'll be well worth the games where nothing's falling.

    ^ Bowen’s value was in keeping some of the best scoring guards/wings of all time in check. Anything he gave on the other side of the ball was just gravy. Bowen going 0fer one game and 4/5 the next gave Timmy more freedom to operate down in those sometimes, treacherous 4 down days.

    I actually looked it up and yes, I believe if Sochan is in the SL on day one, he would be the first Spur to begin his rookie campaign as a starter since Tim Duncan in 97/98. kinda crazy
