More on this storyline

Turkish heart Alperen Sengun making noise within the NBA attracted the eye of LeBron James. The ageless celebrity lifted the Los Angeles Lakers over the Houston Rockets however praised Sengun after the NBA Sundays contest. “He is getting more comfortable in every game,” evaluated James, “Obviously, he can post very effectively. He has a great ball-handling ability, can see the floor, great passing. He is a really good young piece.” -via EuroHoops.internet / November 20, 2023
The second cause is stylistic. Sengun’s talent set is unconventional, extremely invaluable, and tailored to dominate the fashionable NBA. His strengths are a direct descendent of what large males like Jokic and Domantas Sabonis at present are—hyper-efficient, pass-first management facilities who push buttons and pull levers for a few of the best offenses in historical past. “Obviously, you see the fancy passes, behind-the-back no-looks, and all that. It reminds me of some [Arvydas] Sabonis stuff, who I grew up watching a little bit in Portland,” Udoka tells me. “It’s almost like he gets bored with the game at times and wants to try to make the difficult pass instead of the simple one because he sees it ahead of time.” -via The Ringer / November 17, 2023
When the Houston Rockets drafted Alperen Sengun, they had been very involved about how he would regulate to life within the NBA. Still solely 19 years outdated, the Turkish teenager couldn’t communicate any English. They frightened for nothing. “He had absolutely no adjustment period,” Rockets common supervisor Rafael Stone tells me. “None. Zero. And that’s nothing we did. It’s entirely his personality.” -via The Ringer / November 17, 2023
