The 2 biggest things that I hoped to see from KP since early in the season was for him to get an opportunity to be more of an offensive facilitator. He's got good hands, his handles are very good considering he's 7'3", so I love the idea of him being somewhat of a Jokic with his passing for assists. The second thing that I've wanted to see him do more of is dribble drive with a eurostep right at the basket. He is doing that now at least once or twice a game, and his timing keeps getting better and better. I'm loving his improvement.

I like that that they are using him more in some of those same mid range post up areas that they used Dirk at for many years especially the high post ft area

I believe he has the ability to be a #1 option like a Anthony Davis or Jokic
I agree. I really like his hands and passing potential. He could end up being that 2nd facilitator everybody keeps asking for imo, and I think that would be better coming from him in the post instead of another guard, although I wouldn't complain about another facilitating guard, hopefully one with some size.

I loved that pass to Luka for a layup. Through traffic and the pass was excellent

This is because of the way Dallas plays - the offensive culture. Exploit the open space, pass it around, find and make the right play. If you keep getting the ball in the right places, of course you'll start giving it to others in the right places. KP never really played like that before Dallas.

KP more and more looks like a guy who does everything, like he should be 6.7 or 6.8. A true unicorn. Looking at his numbers over the last few games, if this goes on (the trajectory is actually for even further improvement - he ain't fully back and adapted yet) aaaand he stays healthy, this could be huuuuge.
