Wow you guys get excited easily. I thought that Ball played exactly the same as last year. Shot is still awkward, still extremely passive even in situations where it may be unnecessary, and absolutely no mid range game at all.
Him having actual passers on the team will help him get those easy alley oops but, given the right roster, there is no physical reason why he couldn't do that last year.
Of course we need to give him time but as of right now Ingram looks to have improved slightly more than Ball which imo is a bit upsetting because I believe Ball has far more potential.
Either way, the team was fun to watch and I hope Ball was simply rusty and has actually drastically improved his game.
By the same token you can’t get overly negative after one game
He’s definitely bigger, his range is better, shot still awkward but it looks like he can get it there easier with less forcefulness
But we have to see where both he and Ingram are at a month from now, and on
It’s not a bad thing that Ingram is improving so well. That’s a great thing.
