Madsen had exactly 0 offensive game, no jumper, no post moves. He was a wasted pick who was not even that good at playing defense.

Mo has at least 250 times the offensive game as Madsen and is probably a better defender due to his greater length.

yeah Lakers drafted a bunch of duds with our late 1st round picks back in the Kobe+Shaq. If those Laker teams were able to draft players like Kuzma, Hart, Mo it would have been over.

MO is not a bust, but definitely needs a lot of refinement.

I see him being in G League most of the year with this lakers squad.

I can see him playing meaningful minutes with the second unit.

Most players put up awful efficiency stats in SPL.

New teammates, little practice time.

Different motivations, people hogging shots, getting used to NBA 3 point line, new rugged physicality, etc.

I've been very pleased with what I'm seeing from Wagner/Svi so far. They will be in our rotation next year and that's really good for a 25/47th pick.


I like your answer better than mine lol


SPL is basically an organized pick up game.
but its less organized then playing that same pickup game with people you've known for a long time.

Yeah, he's a Kuzma light. He always wants the ball and wants to
go to work. His D is suspect but on that second unit he could be
money...

Does Mo have work to do, sure, we could say that about a lot of our
youth, bu,t there is talent there.

I hope he's ok!!

He landed on the back heel of another player and immediately sat down. He hasn't been back in the game since.

I was wondering what happened. Started it late and didn't see him at all.

Wagner was doing a great job on Knox defensively. He wasn't supposed to be able to guard guys like that, but he has. Really impressive.

Bummer

I was worried but relieved when Magic allowed him back in the game....but that ended quickly.

Hope it's not a bad knee and/or ankle strain!!

Good sign was he was able to walk back out and play a bit?

But yeah, never want to hear anything like "knee" or "ankle" injury. Shut him down. SPL championship be damned.

Shame about the injury. He was playing well and was probably gonna have his best game tonight.

But I’m cool with it if he doesn’t play the rest of the way. I’ve pretty much seen enough. He’s a keeper with very good strengths and stuff that he needs to work on has A LOT to do with hitting the weight room.

So this is probably good for him anyway. Hit the gym kid and get stronger. You will be all ready to go in training camp.

when was Wagner defending Knox? Who was defending Mitchell Robinson when this was taking place?
