Wouldn’t it be great if EVERY “raw” rookie could come in and start being good right away? I’m seeing what I’m seeing with OG “Augh” Anunoby, and I wish it could be that way for everyone. Just step on the court and start playing like you’re a vet. If everyone was as talented as Anunoby in picking up the NBA game, the league’s talent level would skyrocket. Why sign a vet when you can pick some random player from some random college and have him contribute just as much?
Sadly, that is not a world we live in. Most rookies, raw or not, come in and make asses of themselves. To be fair, Anunoby has had his share of ass moments, and it’s not like he’s setting the world on fire or anything. He’s just a solid, low-usage role-player.
I wonder what Bruno Caboclo is up to right now. This has to hurt for him.
