lol...when did I bash people who predict the future? Dude I was defending people that people bash for "predicting the future." Damn at least read the post before you decide to defend Russell at all cost!
Russell is visibly lazy on the court. Defend it all you want but that comes with a certain mentality. I'm not saying I know the guy personally and can't tell you what he is gonna eat for dinner tonite but as of right now it is pretty obvious that his head isn't completely in the game. And that is a mentality that you don't want from a rookie or any other player in the NBA.
BTW reading comprehension at its best...right back at you bro
I'm not saying he'll be great either. I'm just fed up to see people coming back to bash him game after game and completely forgot in which team he's playing and under which clown he has to play. Put Okafor here, Russell at Sixers i bet some bucks Russell will average strong stats while everyone would bash Okafor here. Why Okafor, Towns or Mudiay are playing better? Because their coach is giving them importance and putting systems for them. Byron "Man Up" Scott benches him all the time and designs the exact opposite plays to his strengths. Very clever.
