If you call putting up 18pts/4ast on 47%fg garbage.
Guessing you’re one of those guys who wanted to give Drummond a long term contract right?
No I wasn't. Drummond's numbers are empty calories.
I rest my case bro. Rose's numbers during his first run with us and his second run with us are similar at first glance but different in some important ways. You can blame it on other stuff like Phil Jackson being an idiot and stuff off the court but his first season points and assists weren't good numbers, like Drummond being able to put up numbers and not impact winning.
Nowadays, though? Much better. Rose isn't alone, though. We've had a lot of empty calorie seasons from a lot of players since then. I'm enjoying some good play now.
