Rose must like his reckless low-percentage drives.

Are you disputing my characterization of his game?

Nice move.

Actually, every player on the Magic has played quite a lot of organized basketball before. Even the rookies.

Because a 30-win team is much better than a 20-win team.

No effective NBA PG has relied SOLELY on driving to the basket and passing from inside. That's not an exaggeration, that's the truth.

Nobody's overlooking him, but cherry-picking single games doesn't help his or anyone's case.

I don't know what you think "BS" means, but it's generally used to denote things that the speaker doesn't believe are true.

I don't know what I'm missing, because to me he looks pretty clearly like a fourth starter.

I think your definition of "exciting" is different from mine.

Neither is interpreting a straightforward statement as "cognitive dissonance."

You can say what you like, but "you don't believe what you just said" is rarely a very good debate tactic.

Yes, of course it's a rare instance. That's the last point I made.

Results don't show much, styles of play and game plans show a lot.

The supporting evidence for all this should be familiar to you.

I'm skeptical about Payton's skill set, but that skill set is certainly way more developed than Gordon's.
Commented on Should Elfrid Payton Be Our Starting Point Guard Right Off The Bat? on Jul 29 2014, 2:14p
Yes, based on both of those things. He's a rookie, so he'll probably struggle to grasp the playbook, and it stands to reason that a guy who just drives the lane in a league where point guards can't drive the lane will be bad.

Given that the Magic are even shallower at point guard than they were last year, I don't see how they can avoid the equivalent of "playing Ronnie Price 20min/game."
Commented on Did the Orlando Magic get worse over the summer? on Jul 29 2014, 1:51p
In a few years Nelson will be retired, and Payton will be in some league where his one skill is remotely relevant.

The Suns had talented offensive players.

You can say "too early to tell", but the Magic lost the two best passers on the team and replaced them with nobody who's as good as either of them.

But what if those young players DON'T have the potential to be good?

Payton wasn't a good move, Fournier was a decent one. He could project as a 15-17 PPG guy with good shooting.

Yeah, that seems about average.

Jameer could run an offense well. It's not clear who is going to do that now.

Yes, it's fine to get in the lane sometimes, but it's the only thing Payton can do.

I don't "love" him. I don't think he's a top-20 NBA point guard right now.

Despite his struggles as a scorer, Burke ran an NBA offense pretty well last year.

He's bad at getting open, bad at free throws, and I'm not convinced that the limited evidence that he now might shoot threes well outweighs the voluminous evidence that he's terrible at them.
