9 out of 10 of those players will come back to their teams.
I'm just like, "Stop it."
Your expectations are waaaaaayyyyy to high. TMac when he was 23 was averaging 26, 8, 5. Jordan Clarkson will never be that type of player. Period.
agreed. tmac wasnt close to kobe. dont care what stats you post. kobe always sonned tmac.
. i dont see jordan clarkson as being a number one option type dude tho.
No kidding. Jeremy Lin was also good for part of a season his first year playing as well until defensive schemes started figuring him out. Now he is a dog turd. Hell, the warriors were making Delladova look like a legit PG in this league until they played him a couple times. Its easy to score points on a bad team when no one is game planning for you.
I'm not a Tmac fan, but statics show that he was every bit on his level in his Orlando years. Am I saying he was better than Kobe? Absolutely not. But at his peak he was a 32, 7, and 6 player who statiscally speaking around Kobe's level defensively. Granted his prime was only 5 years and Kobe has been so good for so long I don't think you can even compare the careers, but their peaks were pretty comparable.
Edit: Ill give you that Kobe was a better defensive player than TMac without a doubt, but I don't think you can say they weren't even close because of that.
