Looks like those Stephen Curry comparisons for C.J. McCollum coming out of college weren’t so wrong after all. Because, let’s be honest, they were looking pretty wrong for C.J.’s first two years in the league. The Juan Dixon (barf) comparisons were looking a little closer.
Turns out that all Gollum needed was some minutes, perhaps combined with the Trailblazers’ patient development timetable. The decision to let Wes Matthews and his dangling tendons walk (or , in this case, crawl) to free up time is looking pretty good. Wins and losses are an overrated stat. C.J.’s exciting growth as a scorer is worth a billion wins.
Alright, I’m exaggerating. It’s called hyperbole, geez, I was just trying to make a point about how I like watching him make smooth jumpers.
