Sums it up nicely. Ball and Haliburton clearly ahead of the pack at this stage.

Look like it's between LaMelo and Haliburton so far. This was a better draft than we were told Lot's of good players.

Not fair for Edwards here. He is playing with a bunch of G leaguers and they have absolutely no one at PF or C right now.

Maxey now holds the rookie high with 39.That might be hard to break now.

Wilt holds the all time record with 58, Jennings modern day record with 55. Trar with 49 in 2019 and Blake with 47 in 2011.

Please don't start making this your excuse for Edwards. None of the Wolves starters besides KAT have missed any time, their rotation besides Edwards isn't great but it's regular pro guys:
D Russell
Malik Beasley
Rubio
Juan Hernangomez
Naz Reid
Josh Okogie (missed a few games)
J Culver
Not a good rotation but it's not catastrophic or worse than many rookies who get 25+ mpg even when they're clearly not NBA ready yet.

Maxey put up 33 (thirty three!) shots today. Buyers beware.

C’mon, the guy was practically playing one on five on the offensive end with the Sixers down to a handful of scribes today. If you actually watched any of the game, he stood out, despite the circumstances. Whether he ends up good vs great depends on how much he can consolidate that outside shot.

LaMelo, 3rd youngest guy in the NBA, putting the Hornets team on his back.

You took my post out of context. I replied to a fantasy question, pointing out Maxey won't see that type of usage again. It wasn't shade I actually like Maxey and he was someone I liked during the draft process.

LaVar shoulda claimed LaMelo would be better than Curry instead of Zo.

It is always like this with proclaimed weak drafts, and its almost always players who had less hype who become great. I mean good on Lamelo, and least he defeinitely living up to the hype.

I missed where Edwards is having to play the majority of his minutes with BOTH Martin Twins on the floor, oh wait thats Lamelo.

10 of Ball's 11 assists were to Rozier, PJ, and Hayward. All starters. ?

Not sure what the question mark was for. I appreciate the stats. Still doesn't make my point any less true.

Pat going up against his pops Kawhai. Great game by him with good defense, with a couple steals, and legit 3 pt shooting
Damn I love Hip Hop!
