He is a pest defensively. and he showed it the first two games. he was very good for GSW and was disruptive vs boston. he knocks alot of balls away. not just for steals but to force a guy to chase it and reset. he could very well end up being our best bench players. he is a lights out shooter. he is certainly our best small defender outside of brown. and he plays with a chip on hsi shoulder.
guys will come around on him just like they came around on joe harris
Maybe we are watching different games. He is also 2 for 15 from three. It’s going to take a lot for him to change my mind. And not just him actually hitting his threes
if your mind is made after 3 games then it is already an unreasonable view.
He is a proven elite shooter over several seasons on multiple teams on extremely high volume. you can take the 2-15 super small sample heavily skewed by 1 truly awful night... or you could take the larger 700+ attemps as a pro where he shot 40% from three while playing for playoff teams. He also shot 45% from deep in college... all of this while doing a bulk of it off screens, on the move, and with teams knowing he is a threat.
The over-hate on shamet is kind of lazy. and the typical scape-goatishness this board is accustom to.
No my mind was made up prior to us getting him. Clearly the clippers thought the same as they brought in another shooter and got rid of him. Never wanted him and hated the trade and so far in the three games and two preseason games he hasn’t changed my mind. We will see
