    2021-2022 General Game Thread

    I was just able to watch the game from last night. I love how this team was playing for one another and not trying to play hero ball. Suggs and Franz Wagner look like completely different players from their SL and preseason games. Suggs looks so much more under control when he’s running the point and his tenacity on offense and defense is a welcomed sight. I firmly believe the Magic FO resigned Mo Wagner because his energy is so contagious and gets these young fellas motivated and fired up. I also believe it has helped his younger brother Franz become more comfortable on the court while he adjusts to the speed and physicality of the game. You can see him making winning plays on and off the ball and he just looks so much more comfortable out there. If his 3 ball starts to fall with more consistency he is going to be a dangerous weapon for us. If we come out and play with this intensity every night win or lose this team is going to grow before our very eyes. Also shout to to Mo Bamba and Wendell Carter for being able to coexist on the floor together and make a positive impact on both sides of the ball. Wendells individual defense on Randle really stood out to me and makes me think he can play the 4 on a regular basis. Cole Anthony was playing out of his mind but under control the whole game. He was getting his teammates involved and not looking to just score anytime he touched the ball. If he keeps this same mentality going forward and doesn’t settle for I’ll advised shots or drives to the basket we will start to see him have more games like this more often than not. Also TRoss was our savior in the 4th and love how he didn’t force anything and took what the defense gave him. Small sample size but this is the formula if the team wants to continue growing and improving moving forward.

    It’s because we are asking him to be a PG when he’s anything but that. He should be playing the 6th or 7th man role to bring a spark off the bench. He has no vision and dribbles the air out of the ball before making his decision to shoot or pass. We are setting him up for failure by allowing this. I’d honestly rather have Etwaun Moore running the point. At least he knows the concept of team basketball.

    Fully agree here. We need him back in the worst way possible to take the ball out of Cole Anthony’s black hole of an offense hands.

    Agreed, I just think the game is too fast for him right now and he’s also being out muscled by the guys that are guarding him. I was hoping he would look better for us starting off but we will have to temper our expectations from him until we get more of our starters back.

    His handle worries me more than his jumper tbh. He’s too out of control with his drives and loses it more times than not when attacking the basket. He needs to seriously improve in order for him to be an impactful player for us.

    They’ve been swallowing the whistle against the Magic all night and calling everything for the Spurs. Also Suggs looks lost out there on offense very indecisive and he can’t make anything at the rim or a simple pull up jumper.

    These refs are terrible. How they clearly missed that Hampton 3 is baffling. Also Suggs handle is suspect he can’t hold onto the ball when driving into the lane.

    If Mo brings the same energy and defensive presence in the paint that he showed in preseason I wouldn’t hesitate to resign him as well. Both can stretch the floor and are still young enough to develop their games and compliment one another when playing on the court together.

    Once Fultz is back I don’t see Suggs starting at the 1. He will most likely slide over to the 2 which suits his game a lot better right now. His handle isn’t as tight as it should be for a PG and he has trouble getting by defenders consistently when they start to pressure him. Fultz is a much more natural play maker and Suggs looks more comfortable off the ball at this point in time.

    Yeah he isn’t looking very good right now. He’s too weak to play with these grown men. He always gets cut off on his drives and out muscled by any defender that gets physical with him. He’s definitely going to be a project and I wouldn’t expect much from him this season. Let him get a full year of strength and conditioning at the NBA level and things will get easier for him and hopefully the game slows down for him as well. His shot is nonexistent right now and he’s not getting to the rim to draw fouls and shoot free throws to gain that in game confidence.

    There are free streaming sites where you can watch most sports if you know how to find them. Shoot me a pm if you’re interested and I can give you a link.

    Not sure tbh don’t follow the Wizards much at all. I know the last team he played for was Boston for like 2 or 3 weeks before he was let go and we signed him. Either way glad our FO decided to bring him back he is looking like a good rotation player who does all the little things to help you win games.

    Those guys aren’t the end of the bench they are all G League players lol. We definitely won that game first and second unit. Hope we can continue this momentum into the next game and start the season off strong. We will need it with such a tough schedule.

    Mo Wagner was such an underrated pickup. Loved the intensity he brought to the second unit last year and it’s looking like he’s getting more comfortable within the offense. I know it’s preseason but we are looking good against the Celtics so far.

    Nothing to be concerned about it’s the first preseason game and guys are just trying to run the sets they’ve been working on in practice. He’s picking his spots and is trying to get his teammates involved. Nothing wrong with that at all.
