A detailed breakdown from a reddit user on Mario Hezonja's game
weren't you a big time supporter of Mario last year? or was that PM?
I was and still am.. there were a few of us who were on the hype train.
That post does a good job of breaking down where he's at. He's incredibly talented on the offensive end and while he's not good defensively, I don't think he's a total lost cause.. if he can be average or at least not a negative defender, I'll be happy.
The Magic are just a weird team right now. They can't really run and gun considering Vuc is their leading scorer, so they're playing at a slower pace. Can Payton and Oladipo play alongside each other long term? Do you bother keeping Tobias around or do you trade him? I've never seen the appeal so if you can get a solid vet, then maybe it's worth it.
Mario is the real deal, though. He's got great vision, can be a great playmaker despite his shaky handles, can shoot, and is an athlete. It's just a matter of how much Skiles messes with his development.
