Ariza and Warren are superstars ? You wrote about a skill set. Big wing or forward who is a good 3 point shooter and good team defender. Its in the air if Chuma will sniff even Ariza numbers, but his skill set is as i wrote above. I didnt want to be mean, i just felt its quite obvious to show you your fault in logic without waiting for Chuma to start playing becouse the archetype is very valueable. If you want to prove your point show me this bunch of cheap versatile forwards waiting to sign. Its basically list i provided plus Oubre and Thadeus Young as worse shooters.
I wasn’t trying to be mean either. I wasn’t sure if you were comparing the numbers from tho other players before they were in the NBA. I maybe don’t understand what you were saying...
I was not writing specifically about Chuma, but more about his potential skill set. There is no guarantee he will reach it, but stats are promising. Make no mistake i am not equally optimistic about all our prospects. I was very disappointed when we drafted Bamba. Last year i knew we werent drafting NAW. This whole situation with him staying in Orlando for 2 days and dining with Weltman and Hammond seemed like a smoke screen. I didnt know who we will draft, i thought Grant Williams or Brandon Clarke, but i knew Weltman will suprise us. The reaction from draft analysts was also suprising, we were reaching supposedly a second round talent with a near lottery pick, and they said Chuma is a steal of the draft, very strange. During Okeke Introductory press conference Weltman said " This is a great day for Orlando Magic. Every team gets excited about the draft, but some drafts you get little more excited about than others". He said that after two previous drafts where we drafted in high lottery. I think that says something about his expectations going forward.
I dont know if he will develop his pull up game, he was 4/24 in college, but his shot looks fluid and versatile, and his mentality could change after Clifford takes him in his arms. It cant go worse than Gordon pull up though.... (28,4 fg %)
