    We might need both. Hopefully McNair is blessed with similar luck that Vlade unfortunately squandered.

    I wouldn’t call it good fortune as much as having someone competent making decisions finally.

    Olden Polynice on Marvin Bagley

    He had a ts of 42 % and was -7. He’s been bad all year. His true shooting percentage is currently extremely below average and he has negative winshares. He’s been absolutely awful thus far.

    It doesn’t matter that we invested all of this into him. He’s a sunk cost; investing more into him won’t yield the results we want. Time to move on.

    He is a bum and should be traded sooner rather than later.

    We had people here including myself that wrote a big piece on why he would be a horrible selection at 2 right before the draft.

    Welcome Tyrese Haliburton

    He’s going to be an advanced stats monster. His per game stats will look pedestrian, but nobody should be fooled by that.

    Olden Polynice on Marvin Bagley

    I haven’t seen him this year, but he’sa guy who ideally plays less than 30 minutes a game, and is very positive in those minutes.

    It would be hilariously bad to take Bagley over either guy. Clarke is a modern power forward that is very versatile defensively in that he can step out on the perimeter and defend and also provide some rim protection. He’s also very good offensively in that he knows his role and excels finishing...

    Objective truth isn’t a matter of disagreement.

    Olden Polynice on Marvin Bagley

    By the way, the bar shouldn’t be better than Bagley. The bar should be “a big man that can step in and give positive minutes with his defense.” You should be avoiding “offensive bigs” at all costs unless you happen to stumble upon the next Charles Barkley or Nikola Jokic which is obviously...

    Olden Polynice on Marvin Bagley

    Clarke is objectively better, it’s not a matter of “disagreeing” he had big advanced impact stats as a rookie while Bagley has been a negative his entire career. We haven’t played enough yet this year for current rookies and I already mentioned Mitchell Robinson in the second round of the same...

    Olden Polynice on Marvin Bagley

    Clarke is not a small forward and is absolutely better than Bagley. John Collins, Jarrett Allen, Bam Adebayo from recent drafts. Getting a big that is more impactful than Bagley can be done virtually every year with even late round picks. Mitchell Robinson was taken in the second round of the...

    Brandon Clarke was picked 21 and is better than bagley. Gobert and capela were all picked after 20 and are obviously better and something Bagley will never be because he didn’t defend in college and doesn’t now.

    If some team is dumb enough to still believe in the “potential” of bagley I’d dump him in a nano second to anybody that wants to give up a first round pick. You can find more productive big men every year in picks 10-25.
