For him, I just think he should keep driving to the basket even if he gets called for a charge he will learn from it. I mean you look at youtube he's got enough highlight dunks over people, Zo, delfino now mihm!

Yeah, I mean at this point what he can do (offensively and defensively) appears to be pretty limited. Especially with an X and O's coach like Sam Mitchell who doesn't know how to develop young players. So, Joey should just become a slasher and attack the rim relentlessly, kind of like a poor man's Corey Maggette. He may not have a brain, but he is a man of an athlete.

Yea he really reminds me of Maggette who actually worked on his game after orlando doesn't want him anymore and became a guy goes to the line 8-12 times a night.

Their were great moments in that game, and that dunk was one of them. JO's two hard fouls were more. Roko showed a little flash with a driving lay up.

That was a promising game to watch.

I really liked how Joey played. Yes he turned the ball over and made terrible decisions gambling on defense but at least he inst shooting jump shots any more, he's being very aggressive this preseason crashing the boards and driving to the basket.

Roko really impressed me late in the game. He really showed a lot of poise and confidence with the ball. He was getting into the lane at will, he just needs to work on his body control and finishing at the rim. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed watching him play, once he gets comfortable with the speed and physicality of the game, he could be a solid backup. Matt Devlin talked about his work ethic during the game, says he is constantly working on his jumpshot and defensive positioning in practices and in pregame warm ups. And whenever the camera is on the raps side of the court, if you look closely at the bench, Roko is ALWAYS sitting next to either Mike Evans or Alex English talking to them. I'm so glad he finally came over
