    We’re not building our team around him. That ship sailed. He’s a complimentary piece at best until he proves otherwise

    Anything we get from JI at this point has to be considered a nice surprise rather than an expectation. It'd be great if he somehow stays healthy for a full season but until it happens I won't hold my breath.

    I think we need to tone it down a bit, y'all. Paolo is certainly good, but as has been indicated, he's more Luka Donchic thanks Lebron James (which still hitting the jackpot). Paolo's athleticism is good but not elite, but what he might lack in athleticism, he makes up for in BBIQ, which I take 9 times out of 10 (see the inverse here - RJ Hampton). Paolo is going to be good, and he'll probably be an all-star, but we need to quit comparing him to the generational talents of Jordan and Lebron. Depending on personality (marketability), he could be our biggest start since Tracy McGrady, and even then, he won't be the elite scorer McGrady was (athleticism plays a factor there), but he could be like Carmelo type scorer (big body, matchup nightmare) with better passing skills / BBIQ, which we should take every day. My Point: he's going to be great, but let's temper the expectations until we start seeing him play with other NBA players on a nightly basis.

    For the country, not for the player. :) They never won a Bronze medal in their european history, and in general, it was almost two decades that Germany was a non-factor in basketball competion (not even involved in World championship since 2010). Plus, they were at home and that counts too for all of them.

    Wagner plays against Greece! So the injury isn‘t serious.

    Of all the injuries that could have happened a fractured toe is hardly a terrible one. Just unfortunate. He'll miss training camp though and possibly a week or two of the season.

    Welcome !!! About this comment in the report ----> One thought on the Magic: Banchero's rookie season is enough to be excited about Orlando's upcoming season, but after seeing how well Franz Wagner looked in EuroBasket, his progression may have the potential to overshadow that. I say......no problem here, they both play for the Magic !!!!

    Franz was quite in and out of games, but that’s in part because of his selfless nature while playing. He could look like an off the dribble star and an afterthought in the same game. You can’t have a team full of alpha personalities so I think he’ll play the role of secondary star very nicely. Unlike some other people, I do put a lot of emphasis on Summer League play and simply on how players look among other NBA talent. Banchero is huge and literally reminds me of LeBron. Our future is looking great.

    Hopefully that’s not a guy playing through pain to help his national team. From a Magic standpoint, I’d be much more comfortable if he shut it down until training camp.

    They didnt really involve him in the offense. Germany ended up doing the Magic Dance of ISO ball

    This is the Magic we’re talking about. He’ll probably be out all season.
