Rondo was a freak when he carried the big 3 and infact was a referee call away from dispatching them..
Id be happy if we can squeeze 18ppg out of Roz in the playoffs.
The one player im worried about is Brown.. Eberyone keeps saying he will be like Kobe but i jusy dont see Kobe.. He is so frustrating to watch because he has the ability and talent to take over the game but prefers to float to the side. Screams Jeff Green rather than Butler.. People say he is still young but Kobe started to take over at age 20.
What referee call am I forgetting, here? As for the Brown-Kobe comparison
, well, *facepalm*. Jaylen has made significant progress, I think, in terms of dribbling, this year, although that still needs to be fine-tuned, but the biggest difference between Brown and Kobe boils down to one all-important aspect - footwork. Right now, Jaylen is really a 3 point spot-up shooter who can slash, a bit, and does have a pretty nice post game which seemingly disappeared this year, but he doesn't have the ability to come off picks/screens, let alone create any semblance of his own shot, and particularly from midrange, at that, whereas the midrange game and excellent footwork had always been staples of Kobe's game, iirc, and to be honest I don't know if that can really be learned at the NBA level, as it seems to me that it's one of those things where, if you don't have it down by the time you're drafted, then it's not like you're going to be able to use those moves in the pros, no matter how much work you put into it, but I hope that I'm wrong.
By the way, if you're interested in a young player who already has those skills and is similar to Jaylen in build, albeit not necessarily in terms of athleticism, look no further than Dwayne Bacon. Love that guy.
