SOUL wrote:I mean, deep digging numbers aside, it's just common sense. if we're talking about Vucevic and efficiency (before last season), there is no argument to be made there in favor of him being an efficient scorer. A player shooting mostly mid-range shots (without getting to the line or shooting any threes) and hitting them at a 40-50% clip is not efficient at all, and the stats show that.

I can deal with people thinking he's the franchise player, thinking he deserves to be the #1 option every year, a bunch of stuff that I may or may not disagree with, but making him out to be an efficient player is a straight up manipulation of stats.


People can think whatever they want. You put any other deserving allstar on this roster, with high to decent usage, and Vuc disappears from being a #1 option entirely. People act like Vuc hasn’t been in the most advantageous situation imaginable for a big man with a somewhat limited skill set. He was great last season, but our second most reliable option offensively was TRoss off the bench on nights he was hot.

Vuc and Ross carried Orlando last season. When he was limited in the playoffs the Magic struggled immensely because this FO has continuously failed to address the lack of playmaking and offensive production. This offseason was no different.

You are effectively stating that the other four starters are more worthy of upgrading over upgrading Vučević. Look, if the Magic could flip Fournier for DeRozan making Vučević a #2 offensive target, NOBODY here would complain about that.

This one is over 100 and lasted a good two months.

Can someone please make a new thread?

Thanks!
