    We can trade for him if fultz is terrible but if fultz is a piece we're building around they can't play together because their responsibilities overlap too much. 

    Also there's signs that last year for him was an outlier contact year. Last year was fueled by crazy high efficiency on mid-range shots. Those shots are high variance for everyone but mvp caliber guys (and CJ McCollum). So if last year was an outlier he's no longer really worth being a number one guy. And he's on a rookie max contract. 

    It's just a really bad idea. 

    And our front office knows all this so it's highly unlikely to happen

    Here's what I can find


    The concessions at Amway Center are impressive – a giant plate of nachos runs $10, drinks range from $4.50 for a regular soda to $8 for a large, and beer ranges from $7.50 to $8.50, a fair price for any sporting facility. Perhaps the deal of the night, however, are the combos, where you can get a cheeseburger, fries, and regular soda for $14. The quality of the food items is also top notch, with mouth-watering options on display at every turn.

    A plate of nachos sounds different than movie theater nachos if I'm not mistaken??

    Or if you just want to do it this way:

    Preseason stats so far

    Fultz: 6.7ppg on 32/0/100 shooting; 2 rpg; team high 4.3 apg; 2 spg

    Augustin: 6ppg 32/33/75 shooting; 1 rpg; 3 apg; 1.7 spg

    MCW: 6.7 ppg 53/0/67 shooting; 4.3 rpg; 3 apg; team high 2.7 spg. 

    You'd have to rank them 

    1. MCW

    2. Fultz

    3. DJ

    If we were exclusively looking at preseason numbers and nothing else

    Perfect point

    Some of it I think was chemistry— there was one or two times where he was trying to dump it off to someone after driving to the rim and the player wasn’t ready for the dump off. There was still some bad moments where he went to the basket two against one and he wasn’t putting himself in that great of a position to score, though.

    I'll take these problems any day of the week

    It's still crazy that this is what MCW looked like in his first career game

    And that was the best game of his career so far. 

    Obviously the difference between starters and bench players isn't peak so much as it is consistency. But I wonder if we can get a few more games like this out of him:



    Thank you for sharing this. I think it all comes down to confidence and I feel he'll have a healthy amount of it coming back for another season with us.

  6. JI has been super mature and shown flashes of beating his man off the dribble. Hes played his role being a 5th option (as he should be at such a young age and trying to stay healthy) I think its lame to try to put a ceiling on a guy who's shown some amazing flashes, provides all NBA caliber defense, and has little to no major flaws. Hes played for 2 years. I could list 30 NBA superstars that haven't looked as good as JI they're first 2 years. Let's get realistic here.

    See Kwahi Leonard, Tracy McGrady, Scottie Pippen and Kobe Bryant even to some extent.
