Batum can create. Not an all-star level but he is the most underrated in league when it comes to that. Nate f'd up and created this completely incorrect stigma that Batum is just a catch and shoot guy. Batum outplayed Parker as a distributor/point in the Olympics. Not saying he can do that in NBA just that he is EXTREMELY underrated by fans when it comes to that aspect.
and its what chicago was lacking. and what cleavland is trying to do with waiters and irving.
they dont have to be a star, but unless mathews or batum develop that ability, i think we need someone like tyreke evans or a mayo who we can clear out and let the create.
We are running the Dallas offense Terry Dirk combo is similiar to the Lillard LMA combo... we need to DEFEND if we DEFEND our offensive stats will better due to transition points IMO
That said if both Mathews and Batum do add dribble drives to their arseonals we will be that much harder to stop in iso situations.... A little worried about D tho... but I think our offense will be fine
Gordon is faking. Just like Dwight exaggerated his issues with his back. His back is fine then SVG admits what a dickweed Dwight is, he tells team he is not willing to work with SVG another day, he is told SVG will not be fired until after the season, he replies saying his back is ****ed up and he can't play again. Honestly I doubt he had any surgery or problem to begin with. Before he got traded it was Dwight will not be ready till January, then he gets traded and is playing preseason? He faked the entire injury just like Gordon is now faking knee pain because he told Hornets not to match and they did and he REALLY did not want to be a Hornet.
Either way Gordon is a low character guy and would not want him on our team even if the league promised a championship his first year.
