Can Marquese Chriss extend his JaVale McGee-like soar up the depth charts to secure a spot on the roster? Will the growth rate of Jordan Poole’s fandom throughout Dub Nation continue to outpace even the hottest Silicon Valley startups? Which Jacob Evans III is the real Jacob Evans?
Add a splash of Stephen Curry magic, as well as some Dwight Howard jumpers clanking off the back rim, and we surely have another fine preseason matchup in the making.
