I hope so

Bacon's 90s style straight line drive game worked against GS with its porous interior but on most nights not gonna be a good fit alongside Miles and PJ, who we need to groom as our stars

Would much prefer to see Bacon come off the bench as scoring catalyst than clog up the starting five with his tunnel vision


I agree. I think the new starting lineup should be

Rozier
Monk
Miles
PJ
Zeller

I don't think Monk is a good bench guy for any reason. Not saying he would be a good starter either but it might (get him involved in the game) since he'd already be starting. I wouldn't want to start Martin either as I like his spark

I think bacon needs to see the bench again and understand he still has everything to prove.

I feel like he stop giving 100% because he is an “established” starter in the league.

Remember that car accident problem he had last year where he said “you don’t know who I am !?”.
(I might have seen that on reddit)

I still think he is skilled, but he needs to wake up.

I don't think effort is anything to do with his problems, he just sucks. His entire game is lower head and run slowly towards the basket to throw up a garbage layup. He'd be better if he was playing lazy and shooting mid range jumpers thats his only redeemable skill

Bacon could find a role as instant offence off the bench, when he's hot it works and it's handy when no one else can score.

his effort defensively is definitely a problem

and if he ran to the openings on the perimeter instead of dragging feet, then rozier wouldn't get lost in the paint without an outlet as much

Like Bacon, Caleb Martin needs to work on his jump shot form, with the legs flying around.
