Posted on 9 Oct, 2014, by in NBA

Following Carmelo Anthony through the summer gives us a glimpse of someone trying to be optimistic although there aren’t a lot of reasons to be. The New York Knick looked bad adjusting to the triangle offense in a 106-86 loss to the Boston Celtics, as Jared Sullinger had an excellent game while Marcus Smart looked much improved compared to his preseason debut, almost like someone who can take over eventually for Rajon Rondo.

NBA Preseason – Boston Celtics Have Hope, Philadelphia 76ers Still Terrible

Posted on 7 Oct, 2014, by in NBA

Posted on 11 Feb, 2014, by in NBA

Believe it or not, the shoving incident might not hurt Marcus Smart when it comes to his draft stock, but other issues which have to with his inability to improve as a shooter and certain size problems that might get in the way when he goes into the NBA seem a bit more relevant to scouts getting their notes ready for the draft.
