That little drive, stop and turnaround short fadeaway is a much better shot for Anthony than the wild floaters that have no chance of going in.

On the bright side...

Cole Anthony was 6 for 11 on two point shots tonight.

Baby steps!

At least Cole is finally going to develop like most other teams develop their rookies... It's a damn shame our lotto picks weren't as fortunate. And then we wonder why none of them ever developed an offensive game.

Yup... knee to the back while being pushed into the knee from a second player boxing out.

Yes. Didn't look terribly serious, but it was enough for him to come out of the game.

I'm not an expert but after analyzing the scene from beginning to end, i cannot say anything because as I said earlier, I'm not an expert.

Such as? We’ve been drafting players who dont really have the base skill to be offensive players to begin with. The first and only was Victor Oladipo and he showed it during his first year already.

Boring game that was made somewhat interesting with the play of Bamba against their 3rd string (baby steps). AG should be back for tomorrow's game so we'll see if the Magic at least try to play more competitive out there.

Right. So throw them out there and have them learn. If they can't, the GM failed. Why would you draft players that 'dont really have the base skill to be offensive players to begin with' and then don't develop them?

Clark is part of the tank he's a 3 point shooter that shoots 25% from deep... and that percentage will drop further after his 0-3 performance tonight.

Give it up to Weltman and Hammond
