    easy there, big fella.

    he's better at the same stage of development, but that doesn't mean he'll develop at the same trajectory.

    Plus AC stronger and more athletic for both sides of the ball including more vert and isn’t done himself getting better. His stats and advanced ratings this year would be fun to follow if they weren’t such a bummer for the reality of what we should still have on the Lakers.

    He might not be as good defensively or as smart as Caruso but he'll be the better shooter for sure.

    Better handles also by far coming out and will only get better, can get to where he wants on the floor also incorporating change of pace, and a better passer coming out, with equally great court awareness, similar to AC.

    nowhere near the athlete caruso is (i think people really underestimate this aspect of caruso because of his appearance), but more skilled with the ball. apples to oranges, really, despite the fact that they're both 6'5" white guys from non-powerhouse programs.

    both high hoop iq players, though, which i obviously love.

    That is some excellent information! Do you have any data on what the average NBA three-point field goal oercentage from pull up and for catch and shoot? Also, who are the league leaders in these categories?

    Experience. I don't blame him for not putting the kid in a position where he's going to fail in his first NBA game. Curry and the Splash step brother would have smoked him. Those opening night lights are bright and against a well oiled GS machine, not worth the risk of killing his confidence.
