3.) The Point Sochan experiment returns mixed results
Last night's game was an excellent showcase of Sochan's abilities on the court. Despite a divisive response from fans after he earned the starting point guard spot, Sochan has proved to be a valuable asset to ball movement and team defense. He notched a career-high in assists, showing his potential offensive impact as well. Though his long-term position has been a topic of debate, it is clear that Sochan has the talent and drive to continue improving and making meaningful contributions.
It is understandable why Popovich has handed Jeremy a chance to prove himself, considering his ceiling is among the highest on the team. While everyone hopes he will develop over time, it would be far from surprising if the coaching staff made adjustments as the season progresses. Ultimately, the most crucial factor is who can best complement Wembanyama and provide him with accurate passes and opportunities to score.
