Zach Lowe with some nice things to say about Marvin in his podcast today. He was running through most of the top rookies and said he was really surprised by Marvin’s overall floor game. He is open about the fact that he is not a college basketball expert by any means, and talked about how once word got out that the kings were zeroing in on Bagley in the draft it created this negative ‘halo’ effect on the perception of Marvin’s game leading into draft night (ie highlighting his weaknesses, etc). It was an interesting confession on his part about how the narrative of the bumbling kings may have clouded perception and analysis. I know a lot of people on this board aren’t a fan of Lowe but I’ve always thought he was one of the more perceptive and interesting nba writers. Amazing how as the team starts to play better and act like a competent franchise, national,writers start to write nice things about them.
