That's not the same as claiming he's going to be another Bosh or Anthony Davis. The most any of the "pro-W" crowd have said that I've seen is that he has potential and we want to see what it might be. It's the anti-Wiseman crowd who are saying things like "We wasted a draft pick" and "He's never going to be any good" and "trade him now before his value completely craters." Which is pretty funny, because also they keep saying things like "Everyone knows that he's a failed pick". Everybody except actual NBA GMs, apparently.
I'm going to be very amused when he's actually playing and people have something to talk about besides building defensive walls around their previous hot takes. The over-analysis here on every Wiseman appearance is going to be FIERCE.
Exactly. Overall...can we shut the **** up about 'agendas'
Sometimes people form opinions based on the information they have available to them right now. It's not a witch hunt. I think some folks like to double down on the same old, tired takes instead of being reasonable, but whatever.
I do think Wiseman will 'make us worse' when he comes back - but he will do that in less than 10 mpg. Kuminga also largely makes us worse 50% of the time in his limited minutes. But when he's on, he's fantastic and a difference maker. That's what you look for in developing young guys - can they lock in at least part of the time to be a contributor. And yes, I do think Wiseman can do that this year. No, I don't think he's lighting the world on fire as a championship starting 5. If you think that's the #WisemanAgenda idk what to tell you because it's basically what everyone else other than a few posters has said about the guy. He can be effective, will have growing pains and is a longer term project given his age/experience/position.
