Michael Carter-Williams: Possibly the best rookie debut ever

Postby Frank Dux on Thu Oct 31, 2013 12:27 pm

22 points(60%fg), 12 assists, 7 rebounds, 9 steals, 4/6 from 3, 1 turnover, and most importantly- a win over the Miami Heat!

Against the defending champs, and possibly the best perimeter defense in the league. Welcome to the league Michael!

Another huge game from MCW. 26 points, 10 assists, 4 boards, 3 steals, and a win over Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls.

The 76ers are supposed to be historically bad, but they've beaten some impressive teams so far...

He has a great motor on both ends , shooting mechanic is looking solid , can pass the ball.

He's very long and has a knack for the ball on D ... It sometimes results in gambling too much on D but as I said he never stops moving ... he may hit the rookie wall pretty hard though because of that

^Yeah sometimes he goes for the steal and gets out of position, but I love how he's always active, and never gives up on a play. You can't teach that. As for the rookie wall... I'm curious as well. His scoring will probably come back to earth, but his playmaking and poise is really impressive. He might be the real deal.

Hmmm seems like Philly has a knack for drafting great over-sized PG's

Well he outplayed Derrick Rose tonight. Rose is still rusty, but MCW is impressive regardless.

The kid looks like he should be the star of his own Disney Sitcom. But as a 6'5 super-active PG with a solid jumpshot, I'm a huge fan.

Wow. This guy has the mentality of a 10-year veteran.

Granted, I've only seen highlights, but I am just amazed at how he reads the opponent's offense so well, how he finds the open man so well, and how he makes such smart decisions with the ball (spotting up, passing to an open shooter or cutter, and converting transition layups).

Dude looks unreal so far. I would never have guessed he was a rookie.

He'll come back down to Earth soon, but he's really playing in the perfect speed right now. He's being patient. Good to see from a young guy.

He definitely came down to earth, but he's still impressive. The point guard position is the hardest transition.

Who would you guys take if you could have drafted this guy or Lillard up in Portland?

Disagree. The big man position is the more difficult one. Going from playing shorter bigs in high school and college and facing bigs your height with more mature physiques and more experience than you is a tougher transition. NBA caliber guards pretty much play guys their height in high school and college.

That being said, I'm impressed with what he's doing. Philly was supposed to tank this season. Apparently the players don't want any part of it.
