How Rockets' Jalen Green already has Skip Bayless, national media taking notice


Monday on Undisputed, Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe discuss Jalen Green's impressive summer league performance against the Cavs on Sunday. Green scored 23 points on 9-of-18 shooting, leading the Rockets to an 84-76 win. Bayless went on to say that he believes Jalen Green is making the statement that "Detroit made the wrong pick at No. 1, taking Cade Cunningham." Bayless also said he believes Green has the talent to lead the league in scoring at some point in his career, and Houston fans should be excited that basketball will be fun again in the near future.

With only one summer league game in the books, we don't want to make too big a deal out of one game. But Rockets fans have to love what they're seeing from the No. 2 pick so far. As far as Green being the better pick than Cade Cunningham, we'll have to wait before we make that assessment. However, Green and Cunningham will play each other this Tuesday when the Rockets take on the Pistons at 8pm on ESPN.

In the video above, Rich Eisen reacts to Caserio's presser and projects how the season will play out for the Texans with Diggs added to the team. Let's just say he's bullish on the Texans.
