rather have ET than Meyers....
When life gives you lemons . . . you make the fans drink Evan-aide.
Team scoring in order: Dame/CJ/Nurk/Moe/Curry/Baldwin/Zach/Jake/Meyers..............................................................................Turner
With Ed gone, and barring a trade, Meyers is going to be an important part of our 3 man bigs rotation.
I hope our perpetual adolescent the best. This is without a doubt his last chance.
It does if he improves his FG% and becomes more consistent. If he could get up to 15PPG on 30-32 minutes, I don't see how that wouldn't be a benefit to the team... of course unless he drops his FG%.
And I'm hoping that Nurk gets up to the 16-18 PPG so that would put turner at 4th.
I don't believe I said anything about "Building" around ET. I said in order for him to succeed on the court, he needs the right compliment around him. As you were.
Wait. There are people that like Evan Turner?
Now I have heard Olshey say it twice. If he works on his handles a bit and is more of a distributor and opportunistic scorer, I guess it could work. A lot of the new guys are better at shooting off the catch anyway, so maybe? ET is a solid defender, and we can't have too many of those.
Turner better be practicing his 3
The title of this thread is going to drive me from S2.
Ok so how do you get the players to compliment him without building around him.
I agree that he can be ok in the right situation and the right system, with the right players around him, but I don’t think he’s good enough to go out and get players just to compliment his skill set.
Turner's best role, on offense, is as a facilitator for guys who don't need to improve their FG% and become more consistent. I don't want to see his MPG or FGA go up. I want to see him creating more for others.
He is going to be 30-years old in October. He's never going to be a great shooter, or likely even a moderately below average one. Every shot he takes is a shot he takes away from someone else. He actually set new career highs in both eFG% and TS% last season, but was still way below league average in both. This is the best Evan Turner has ever shot, and it was still pretty bad.
He wouldn't have to drop his FG% to hurt the team. He already does. Hell, he could improve his shooting and STILL hurt the team. He'd just hurt them less. That's how bad of a shooter he is.
You ruined my day!
It's what I do!
Yeh, that's the ticket. Let's make lemonade out of lemons! (Oops, i see that someone else has already posted something cleverer than me.)
We've been wondering what it would take...
