    If Tristan keeps up this production (which I fully think he will, kid is damn good now) I hope we at least hear his name come up for most improved player.

    Tristan is a fucking animal. And I don't mean animal as in sub-human or whatever according to white supremeists cause he's black. I mean animal as in very fucking good at basketball.

    Haha geez...that shooting form looks terrible. Then again it's been over 15 years since he's played in the NBA, so I guess I'll give him a pass.

    Far beyond hustle now. Those moves are anything but.

    It's like the guy's on Mentats now. His Bball IQ has shown an inordinate rise. He's getting post-ups and passing out of them for re-posts.

    The moves though, it's like he's been replaced with another player. I have never seen such a drastic improvement in a short period of time. Things are looking good, Tristan. Just get some blocks for our boys in fantasy.

    Feels good, man.

    Just finished watching the 2nd quarter of the game on the replay.

    Grant deserves major Kudos, since TT looks like the 2nd best player in his draft class, and not a reach at all.

    This isn't a player who is just playing streaky right now, he has literally developed LEGIT post moves since the beginning of the season. With this kid's work ethic, I'm starting to think the sky's the limit.

    The coaches, especially Mosely I think, said repeatedly that he had unlimited upside. I doubted that, but thought they must be seeing something. I didn't think it would be so dramatic. I don't think we can hope him to keep up this pace of development, but it does seem like new weapons are being displayed every game/few games. TT said in a recent interview, "I want to perfect my craft". I think he is serious.

    realistically, who can you argue was a better player than him in that draft other than Kyrie? Considering how puzzling the move seemed at the time and especially at the beginning of this season, Grant must have one crazy nose for talent or something. to me he's hands down the second best player from that draft right now.

    Yeah, there'd be some collateral damage, but you'd solve a good chunk of the problem.

    Tristan's little jump hook in the middle of the lane is un-guardable right now. Who woulda thought?


    Very simple shot but highly lethal.

    His post footwork has been lookin like Akeem lately. His ambidextrous finishes and jump hooks are definitely Hakeem-esque.

    With his work ethic, he could develop into something incredible in time. What I like about Thompson is he's not afraid to mix it up and get dirty inside. Unlike the Carlos Boozers of the world, Thompson brings a grit to the post that you want out of your 4 man.

    I loved the move at the time and I still do now, but I gotta wonder how much him being the second best player in the draft has to do with him being drafting alongside Kyrie. It's gotta motivate the hell out of him to have a teammate from the same draft class as him accomplishing great things and opening up his eyes to what is possible with some hard work.

    Basically- I wonder how he would be doing right now if he got drafted to the Raptors, Wizards, or Kings?

    After seeing tonight's highlights, I though, is that really Tristan Thompson?

    Judging by his learning curve, I expect him to unveil a jump shot by this time next year, and start taking his place among the best PF's in the league.
