Clarkson I am very happy with. He flashes that rare ability to make one leg cut or one cross and get by the initial defender. He is explosive with his handle and 1st step. Love he tenacity attacking the rim. He does play out of control at times but the game with slow down for him at some point. Like the fact that he isn't timid and plays hard.

Funniest moment in summer league was my dude Isaiah Canaan pg from the Rockets dosing Wiggins to close out the game. Thru the legs 4x on the iso slowly walking it towards him then the blow by an finish with Wiggins leaping up and whiffing attempting to block the lay up. Canaan waved every away and called for the low 4 set. Some handles on Canaan for sure. Another reason why Houston felt comfortable getting rid of Lin.

Why didn't we get Canaan instead of stupid Kane. Man we gassed up Kane so much that I thought he was a lock for the roster smh, I feel like a fool.

always knew Clarkson would do better at this level. idc what you do in college -- how are your tools going to translate to the next level? Kane aint got the quicks to be anything more than average ; saw that coming


Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

I wouldnt put too much into this one single play. Although it was a good move but this play wont make him "canaan" or break him "wiggins" everyone gets burn, its just that it looks bad when you do it to the #1 pick. :)

I think randle has a mid range shot
His coach just beat it out of him at Kentucky..

Wish he could do the same for josh smith.

Canaan balled the entire summer league. I think he's averaging like 19 points a game. It wasn't just one play.

Kane had his little moments here and there, I expected so much more from him and Roddy Bebouis. They're just D-league players to me now.

IF you watch a lot of college ball you would know who Canaan is. He helped put Murray St on the national map and is an excellent player. There was more than one reason why the Rockets felt comfortable getting rid of Lin. Canaan has a serious handle...strong left+right and is a better shooter than both Lin and Beverly. He also has a pull up off the bounce... creates his own shot with ease...gets in the lane...capable of setting up others. Natural pg...more of a complete player at the position than Lin and Bev.

You're overhyping him man. If he was better than both Lin and Bev then why was he 3rd on the depth chart? Rockets got rid of Lin to try to sign Bosh. Lin is definitely not worth 15mil but he's a more complete player at the moment
