I truly believe Rosas thinks he can get very good production out of Russell, he may be wrong, but he believes it.
Why add "he may be wrong" into your statement? He's already gotten good production out of him in games he's played. There is no question. There is just fairytales by haters and Rosas breaking his team after the decision to add him. That's as deep as this goes.
DLo will always produce numbers. That’s not the type of production people are talking about. It’s whether his game will ever be conducive to winning. He’s a ball stopper that plays no D, can’t get to the line, and lives off the most inefficient shot in basketball (the long two).
Rosas went after him thinking he was an undervalued asset. Much like Harden was in OKC. It’s possible DLo elevates his game with better teammates. He certainly can shoot it.
Ppl on this form always seem to find a new thing to pick at with DLo so I’ll break it down:
-His contract: Blame KD for that cause he wanted GSW to get something in exchange for him leaving and had to match salaries. DLo was gonna get 25 mil in the FA at least (Lakers, Magic and WOLVES)
-Non winning culture: This team has sucked and you expect him to come in and be your white knight. What seed would this exact team be with Lebron or Curry?(Account for only playing with KAT for 5 games)
-Ball stopper: Yes he plays hero ball at times but look at this roster. If Okogie and Culver were your wing options, the team would put the ball in his hands most of the time also.
-Mid range: He’s ranked 2nd in mid range FG% and one of the best to shoot it behind CP3 and KD. Calling it inefficient is people listening to the “Analytic nerds”. If a player shoots over 50% from 2 I want them shooting that shot. Look at Kyrie, Rip Hamilton, ZBo, and Tim Duncan game.
