One thing I’ve noticed about Delon Wright is that his eyes get super shiny whenever he plays decent minutes. You know how in cartoons sometimes character’s eyes have those big white spots drawn on them that are totally unrealistic? That’s Wright in real life. I don’t know, it’s just something I noticed.
I also noticed that he scored 20 points in this game and managed to avoid getting into a fight with anyone on the 76ers. The 20 points is not a rare quality for a Raptors guard to possess, but that second part? I think I even saw VanVleet during a timeout walk over to the Philly huddle and bash Trevor Booker’s head with a folding chair.
Wright hasn’t yet recaptured the magic of his magical 25 points, 13 rebound performance a couple games ago. I don’t think anyone honestly expected him to, but this isn’t too far off. As long as you ignore the rebounds, which you should, because rebounds acquired by a point guard are worthless.
Yes, I just threw some shade on a certain MVP winner.
