Now that you trashed a 20 yr old guy on the internet, a guy who has put his blood, sweat and tears into playing the game of basketball and trying to be the best player he can be so he can try and reach his dream of playing in the NBA - a guy who's far better at basketball than you'll ever be.
I hope trashing him makes you feel better about yourself.
Lol it’s not that deep bro. Dude just basically said Yam is being overhyped and simply isn’t that good for the NBA. Sure he has worked his whole life for it and has a strong work ethic but shows how hard it is to be a player in the league
2 summer league games where he only played 16 mins a game coming off the bench is not even close to a large enough sample size to come to such a conclusion.
Not to mention Madar is playing with guys he had only practiced with for a week (whereas some of them like Edwards and Langford have been playing together for 2 yrs) while playing in a foreign country, against players you've never gone against while at times playing out of position (sometimes when he was out there they had Pritchard at the 1 and Madar at the 2).
Still, out of the 2 games he's played, 1 of them he actually played really well. It's funny how everyone is just writing him off after a rough game vs Denver, completely dismissing how good and how electric he was in the first game vs ATL..
Lol I’m not writing him off because of a summer league game. He was the 47th pick and is coming over to a roster loaded with depth at point guard. Very few late 2nd round picks stay in the league and become consistent contributors. I just don’t see much difference between Tremont Waters and Yam but apparently that’s “hating” for saying Yam is being overhyped and isn’t that good for the NBA. It just goes to show how hard it is to stick in the NBA. Even Tremont Waters was a superior prospect to Yam and high level producer at LSU but is having trouble sticking and being an actual contributor. Summer league doesn’t change my opinion on Yam...
