Jock Landale adds some depth to the center spot, which makes sense with DA’s situation and JaVale McGee leaving, but it’s hard not to think of this as another precursor to a big move coming up for the Suns – 7:01 PM

The NBA is full of superstars and, obviously, the best basketballers on the planet – so who stood out most to Jock Landale? He’s named Philadelphia 76ers centre and MVP runner-up Joel Embiid as clearly his toughest opponent. “Joel Embiid by a long way,” Landale told SEN Breakfast. “I said to my dad a couple of weeks ago – I said he’s the only player I’ll ever admit that I’ll never have a chance against. He’s just on a different level physically, offensively, defensively – he’s a freak of nature.” -via SEN.com.au / May 11, 2022

Jock Landale: “The other one that stands out like a sore thumb is Ja Morant who is a special, special player. Those guys I was like ‘wow this is completely different and unlike anything else I’ve ever experienced’.” -via SEN.com.au / May 11, 2022
