If you take away his 3s & shots at the rim (aka 'mid-range game') Bacon only shot 33.9% FG%. Those attempts were roughly 60% of his game. Bacon wasn't MCW bad, but offense was definitely not his strength in his rookie campaign.

I'm not down on Bacon, but he definitely has work to do.

I'm more impressed by his defense than anything. He had a -0.3 DBPM and 111 Defensive Rating. He's already showed he's a competent scorer in college, so to see that he is already an NBA level defender is a great sign.

He got a lot of junk PT, so I don't put a ton of weight on those percentages. Doesn't necessarily discredit your point, but I think he does have a lot of potential and I'm excited to have him on the roster.

Bac is our best second-round pick in forever.

Not everyone is going to be a superstar in their rookie year. Especially a second rounder, he has shown he has upside and he could be a legit 2way player. Teams draft guys in the first round all the time who they know aren’t going to be 2 way players.

Crazy that guys have a good rookie year and they are great, and when others don’t they suck. I love Tatum and Mitchell but let’s not forget guys like MCW.

Lonzo ball haters crack me up. Guy averaged 10-7-7 his rookie year on crap shooting. He is going to get better at shooting, he was first on lakers in steals, assists and second in rebounds and blocks. Brandon Ingram sucked his rookie year- worse than Lonzo. Now lakers fan thinks he untouchable.

Kuzma won’t ever be an all star.

We've got to see better shooting from Bacon this year. 37% with 25% from 3 isn't gonna cut it for a SG in today's NBA. Until that 3 pt avg goes up Bacon is Gerald Henderson the Third to me

Bacon's game isn't like Henderson's. He's also a SF, not a SG, and most of his shot attempts the last 4/5 of the season were in garbage time.

He was getting the last 2 minutes with Monk. That was terrible to watch. It was basically Monk gets the ball and shoots 2 or 3. Going 0 for 2, or 1 for 3 until they started giving him real minutes at the very end of the season.

But really, if we want to get technical what is the difference these days between a 2 or a 3? I feel both can be interchanged now. You do have a difference between combo guards and 2/3s. Bacon definitely isn't a combo guard.

preach

outside of the early season games where cliff was throwing bacon out there like he was a premier defender, he was stuck jacking up bs in garbage time or wildly inconsistent minutes with monk for the majority of the year

neither guy got a fair shot on a dysfunctional team

Twos handle more 'os' than threes, while threes can be trees if they don't have an 'h.'

Don't see him getting many minutes this year, but glad hes putting in the work.

Read an article which said he's been jacking up a ton of 3's. Smart, a consistent outside shot is going to be his best chance of stealing others minutes.

I'm highly doubtful that both Bacon and Lamb remain on the team past this season. One of them is probably gone.

Bacon had 10 points and two rebounds in 19 minutes and a blowout. He was a starter. Didn't really seem to contribute anywhere else other than making two point baskets. But that's kind of his thing isn't it.
