I'm not concerned about KCP. I'm concerned about BI, JR, and JC. In that order.

I like Randle off the bench.  Im less concerned about him honestly.  Brandon Ingram is supposed to be our flagship player.  He looks like dog[expletive] on offense

Harts defense is pretty good. Plays with the team as well and doesn't force too much which is somewhat rare for SGs.

I'm really curious how Ingram is playing in practice. Does the coaching staff not see he is not ready for this role. This over hyping is the kind of stuff that kills a players career.

Magic has been hyping Lonzo and Ingram too much. Outside of that first SL game and the first few possessions of the first preseason game, Ingram has looked terrible.

Hart is a good defender. Everbody focuses on BI's non-existent offense but he is at least solid on defensive end. And Kuz is a sneaky good rebounder. This trio should get used to play together defensively. 

 

I have two concerns: one about BI's shooting. We all know he can shoot but i just don't get why does not he take those wide open 3's off the dribble after using a pick. When he is off, he is reluctant to take those shots and forces too much. I hope game comes to him in time.

 

My second concern is about Randle. Is it just me or does he always fail to pass the eye-test? No matter what he does, he seems to be unproductive. He made some hustle moves on D, he had 2 great assists, took 3's he has to, has almost 20-10 and i still think he did not play good. And i really am not biased against him, i like him.

My thoughts exactly. I think he is forced to a role he is not ready. Kuz seems readier than him.

Lot's of teaching moments for the coaching staff to use. Let's hope it pays off

Finally a win. Should have been much easier. 

 

-Brook is gonna be huge for us. I hope he stay with this team for more than one year. His presence really makes the half court offense so much better. He forces the players to play together and its great. Forced a couple shots but its his first back so thats fine. 

 

-Kuzma missed five 3's but still ended up with 15 point on 50fg% with 8 rebounds(biggest weakness so far has been rebounding) and 3 assists. The guy is the real deal and will be starting over Ingram if Luke has any sense. He is way too good to not be getting at least 30MPG. 

 

-Ingram is in a unfair position. Magic thought he could just declare that he will dominate this year and now its back firing. Ingram has a ton of skill and will be a great player if guided correctly. But if they just have him force awful shots all game then he will fail. This whole situation is just a shame and handled poorly by Luke and FO. Would like to say though, his defense was great. One thing he need to make sure is never gone is his defense. 

 

-Hart looks solid on defense and can be a good weapon on offense. Will be much more effective with Lonoz playing. Still would like him to get more experience before thinking about him over Clarkson. 

 

-Finally Luke, ugh. Our offense without Lopez is just iso garbage. These guys need some alpha player to force them to play with the team which is what Lopez does. Without that its just the primary ball handler just iso over and over. We should not need Lopez to be in to properly run a half court offense. You can't let Clarkson and Randle play however they like. They both can be such great players and really help us but like the scorpion its just in their nature to force shots and not play in the offense. Luke needs to realize that both need a short leash and be given  specific rules to how they play. I just don't know if Luke is the type of guy to get them to play correctly.
