Yabu is better than Semi and Jabari is better than Nader.

I couldn't disagree more. I don't see what others do in Yabu not even a little bit. Some of you see a lite version of Draymond Green I see a lite version of Malik Rose.

that's a pretty bad comp considering Malik made 0 threes in bis entire career.

oh I see one aspect isn't perfect so the comparison is wrong. High fives!

Its not just one aspect, its a huge aspect. If you cannot differentiate between a post player and a 3 and D guy you need to have your head checked. Other than some physical profile they play nothing alike.

Bump after Yabu's meaningful playoff minutes last night guarding Giannis at times lol

Is he the next fan favorite in a Scal-like role, or more?  :P

Wasn't it Yabusele that was guarding Giannis at the start of the 2nd when Giannis put up a quick 6 and Milwaukee went off to come back from 12 back?

Yes.  Ainge isn't gonna give up on a 16th overall pick after one season just to have a vet be the 12th man instead
I'm bitter.

He'll be a Celtic next year but again a number 11-12 player unless he improves his overall inside offense and gets a little quicker ie: quicker

Without a doubt.

Rozier took a while to come along, and he's played basketball way longer than Yabu has. I really hope he stays here for a while

Doesn't even look like an NBA player, imo. Trade him for a second rounder this year, lol ;D.

Ahhh, the elusive Draymond Green..

Wherefore art thou still just Guerchon Yabusele?

He will have a shorter half-life than James Young. THAT is for sure.

Nobody here knows. Hasn't shown us much, but we don't see much of him like BS and DA.
This is all about money laundering.

He have shown flashes. Its not like Rozier and Bradley lit up in their rookie seasons either.

I think he is looking like a dud.   I hope I am wrong about it, though.

Yup. The interesting question is "will we pick up his team option for 2019-20?"

For the record, I think the answer to that is also yes, because I think we'd be able to get rid of him fairly easily if we needed to)

Yeah, but Bradley and Rozier had skills along with good physical measurements for small guys. Bradley had elite NBA defensive skills and a beautiful shooting form the moment he entered the league. He built off that. Rozier had a good handle, a good shooting form, tenacity and leadership intangibles the minute he became a pro.

Yabusele just has his physical measurements. He doesn't show great rebounding or defensive prowess and his offense is atrocious.

We have to see improvement in his shot this year and an ability to box out and get rebounds as well as improve his defense this year if he is to be here in 2019-20

The Draymond Green comparison is lazy at best. Not every sub-6'9" power forward with guard skills is another Draymond; Draymond is an outlier and a unique one at that, who handles and passes like a PG, rebounds and protects the rim like a center, and plays all-NBA defense while posing as a threat from behind the arc (although, this year he only shot 30% from 3). He's like a combination of Boris Diaw and Dennis Rodman in the strangest, yet highly effective, way.

From his time with the Celtics, all I've seen from Yabusele is the ability to hit 3's and rebound well enough. The footage of him pre-Celtics is full of drives highlighted by quick crossovers and monstrous finishes in traffic. I don't see Yabusele's pre-NBA game translating to the NBA because his physical attributes are less incredible at this level of basketball. He has the weight and strength for sure, but his quickness and agility at this level are nothing to write home about, and that will prevent him from being the beast he was prior to the league. I thought he was a reach at the time and still feel that way now.
