seriously

he was two steps ahead on a few of those passes.  Like transition, PNR...anticipating the D ahead of him and passing to the 3 point shooter.   

Feeling better and better about this pickup

as long he is not like another Vitor Faverani

At 1:01, side pick and roll, he gets a really slick behind the back pass from his teammate. Good work by him, but big props to the passer, whoever it is.
· Team executive on Brown’s future: “All-Star. Multiple times. Just like Jayson. Everyone loves Kawhi and PG as a wing duo. We think we have our own version growing right here in Boston. It’s gonna take a couple more years, but those guys are stars. And neither has an ego. They just want to play and win.”

I see him as a bit of  Jonas Valanciunas, Big strong banger, good up close, good rebounder, good man to man defender.

I think VP has better court awareness and passing, but Jonas a better shooting touch.

I don't think I've ever seen someone set so many moving screens.

If he gets away with it, that's a plus NBA skill!

Nice block (teamwork with Grant) and save by Poirier

liking Poirier more and more

He reminds me of a couple of inches taller version of Theis.   Very  nice motor, good athleticism, quickness. Willing to do some dirty work.  He definitely has more tricks up his sleeves but hasn't been able to show much of it.

He’s nothing like Theis who can hit a 3 pointer. More like a better version on Ante Zizic.

Not a 3 but long 2.  Under CBS likely he extends his range

I don't remember where I read it but someone compared him to a bigger, stronger, Tyler Zeller, in that he's great at running the floor but he's a better finisher and rebounder due to his strength.
