    Summer league, or no summer league, Buycks showed us some moves from the lead guard position that we haven't seen in years.

    He seems to have a knack for getting to the hoop (i.e. can get his shoulder in front of his defender, and angle his body enough to avoid the block, yet still put up a high percentage shot). And he also seems comfortable going either left or right.

    For a 3rd stringer, he looks like a nice find with some upside.

    He plays in the flow of the game which is great Lucas didn't seem to know anything about being a PG at all. I wanted Kabongo but it seems he isnt ready for the next level definitely a "project" player

    Only problem is that in the NBA he isn't going to be driving by guys so easily and if he does there will be a 7 footer waiting for him in the paint. I'm having a difficult time getting excited about a guy on the same level as Patty Mills.

    In theory, he seems to have enough skill to get past his defender. Once he draws the help defender, it's yet to be seen whether Buycks has the vision to make the easy pass (without drawing a charge).

    But again, as a 3rd stringer, I'll take that.

    JL3 is a shooting guard in a point guard's body. Buycks is 5x the playmaker he will ever be.

    No Joke INDEED!



    I wouldn't say his fast but, damn his cat quick. When he see a lane open up he explodes into before it closes up. He has amazing body control as well. That he keeps himself balanced with how quick his moving is a testement in it self. I use to think that DJ had the edge but, not so much anymore. If he can prove he can guard. He'll be the back up PG.
