Nice!! Gameball #OldG!! Welcome back!

“Even if they were unsuccessful, it’s great seeing G going for the alley-oops, even before this game… of course, making us all hold our breath for a second… but yeah, great to see the confidence growing and growing!

Imagine G having these Old G-like numbers and he ain’t even 100% yet. Everybody sees that he doesn’t have that full explosiveness yet, but he’s starting to get used to the pace, and more importantly, his role!

Also, speaking of “player comebacks”, it is really great seeing D. Rose playing consistently great! Maaan, this guy almost retired out of frustration from his injuries, and here he is now!! Thank you, Thibs!” - japsuki
