You might want to print-screen this one, because I won't say it very often, but I think Elfrid Payton will take a big step forward

He looks noticeably bigger. Maybe that helps him get through screens. Add that to his play to end the year last year and that's someone you can work with.

 

Everyone looks bigger. Isaac looks noticeably bigger. Mario. If this leads to improvement S&C should get a big raise.

and this is why this is the hardest time of the year to manage expectations. Because if...

Payton continues to improve and

Gordon takes a step forward and

Ross is as good as the news coming out of training camp and

Fournier's shooting returns and

Simmons and Speights provide enough leadership to change the culture and

the bench plays better and

Isaac turns out to be a solid two way 8th or 9th man this year.

 

We should have a really nice season. but someone will get hurt. we'll play poorly for a month. and so on.

Agree. Lots of moving pieces. Probably best (as a fan) to have low expectations going in given the past few years, but can certainly hope for pleasant surprises.  Unknowable how or if it will all come together this season.

Where are you seeing them "bigger" ?  I'm not finding any new photos.

I haven't been on the "Elf's hair is hampering his game" train thus far, but there's a picture I saw of him yesterday (which I now can't find) driving past Isaac and it looks absurd.  Cartoonish.

It looks like a Bishop's hat, but at least it's out of his line of sight.

yeah, the problem is it's flopping up due to forward momentum. if you look at it while he's standing still it looks like a baseball cap.

Sure, when he's driving.  When he's standing still for a spot-up jumper or setting up the offense it's definitely in his field of vision at this point.
