I wonder if what he has been able to do so far and how he has done it after being out of basketball for so long has quieted all the doubters who were vocal of their distain for him prior to the draft?
He's been super impressive.........and fluid.
I'm still waiting for a response from aome how he is like a slow lumbering Whiteside. Never understood that
Have you watched him try to guard a ball handler on the perimeter yet? He's getting lit up. Even in drop coverage guys are flying by him. He's length allows him to make up for it in certain moments, but it's not been promising.
I was too low on Wiseman predraft, but all of my concerns are still there. He isn't an elite rebounder, has 3 assist to 17 TOs, and is bad defensively. It's also 10 games into the season, so I'm hopeful he will improve. Seems like a good kid and his highlights are a blast. The defense will certainly get better, can't get much worse, but the feel for passing isn't something guys tend to make huge strides in.
I'm still very glad we didn't get the opportunity to draft him. I believe we would have taken him had we landed at 1 or 2. After watching LaMelo I feel vindicated that he's the best guy in this draft.
