I use Chile Chipotle everyday with my dinner to give it some flavor.
You aren't ready for it lol
they mean the restaurant, its like baja fresh but not as good (if you are familiar with that) and was a mcdonalds subsidiary.
as far as salsa caliente, i prefer sriracha, even though its more asian
That's nonsense. I'm just stating the obvious. Marshall has poor athleticism and he is not a good shooter. He can't play defense and he's slow. He has far more negatives than he has positives. I wish him the best but I can't sit here and live in a fantasy world and pretend that any NBA team wants a point guard that sucks defensively, has no mid range game, is slower than molasses and shoots 40% from the field. That is not an opinion those are facts.
Marshall is not going to develop speed because that is an innate ability just like overall athleticism. It's possible that he can improve his shooting and become a decent foul shooter, but it's not likely based upon what he has shown so far. He's got an incredibly slow release can not create his own shot or shoot off the dribble. A coach can only do so much with a limited skill set like this kid possesses.
There is no real interest in Marshall by any team other than the Lakers and the Lakers are only interested because Kendall is all they have cap space for and he is a better ball handler than all of the other scrub point guards from the past season that can remain healthy.
I get it Laker fans are desperate and they will cling to any scrub that offers hope.
JGuez was pretty accurate about KM (ok the floater is debatable) and your implications, dont see how thats nonsense. maybe he will become a better finisher, maybe not, but athleticism is not the end all be all of player development and his career isnt hinged solely on his ability to finish at the rim.
plenty of crafty non-athletes have done just fine if they can make up for it in other ways.
Speed and athleticism can be improved, why the hell do you think athletes work out? take a look at the nfl if you think 250-300 lb linebackers are naturally that fast. thats not to say some arent given those gifts but many athletes work a lot harder than you seem to think.
Shooting can be improved over time even though his athleticism doesnt help that but he can potentially work around that. I tried to convey this earlier but i doubt it got through, his assist numbers are actually more impressive because of his scoring deficiencies, to do that while often being played for the pass doesnt make it easier. of course stats were not needed to see that he is skilled in that way.
Nobody is living in a fantasy world and pretending that he is a heavily sought after piece but unsurprisingly you have completely taken someone's point and ran with it in another direction.
A player getting better and becoming a star or even semi star are two very different things, you act as though JG was inferring the latter. if you think its impossible for him to improve in any way shape or form, well....thats ridiculous
You can gripe about the guy all you want, but until a better passing, shooting, defending, more athletic option is presented with a big bow, you are wasting time.
KM has earned his place, for the time being at least.
