An anonymous assistant coach from the NBA made sure that Holmgren's debut as a Thunder player was a success. He said that the team's stance on the Gonzaga product is unchanged.
An assistant to the NBA, via Sports Illustrated, said that "I'm still not sold on him being an NBA star." Although he's a skilled and excellent shooter, he is also very weak.
He cannot get past his defender, and he quickly realized this and decided to settle for threes for the remainder of the game. He looks so thin in his hips and legs, legs.
He won't fill it up, I think. To have a successful season, he will need to take difficult shots because he is not able to play inside and jumpers.
Although he was able to block shots from drivers, the NBA guys will be able to get in his body. He still has a lot to do.
Holmgren will return to action against the Grizzlies on Wednesday night.
