    Iím a big Derrick White fan so maybe Iím bias but I think his jump shot will be fine. He just has to not worry about Pop pulling him if he misses some and plays patty mills instead lol
    I agree. Derrick shot almost 40% from the college 3-point line. Even though he did not shoot as well in G-league play as my faulty memory recalled, I think he will be much improved this season. If BOTH he and Dijon have improved their 3-pt shots, the Spurs will be in business. I believe Patty will get plenty of burn, but more at the 2 spot. Especially after White's FIBA outing, I expect him to be on a much longer leash this season. He should not need to look over his shoulder at Patty.

    Did it help him? Well, compared to sitting on his ass in Colorado all summer I think the level of compe ors he was exposed to every day in practice was proof to him that he is nearing legitimacy as an NBA star. Of course it helped him.

    The Fastest Players in the NBA (according to NBA 2K19). I hope the link works - it's one of those click-bait lists:
    https://hoopshype.com/2019/09/22/the...lideIdslide-13


    I know 2K19 isn't an official source, but the point is that White is fast. His combine times were incredible, too. I think a lot of people here still don't understand how athletic he really is. They crow about LWIV's athleticism, even if they don't like him. But the top of that list is some pretty impressive company.

    Have you ever looked closely at those NBA website numbers? I'm not barking at you about it - it's not your doing. The first time I saw that I thought it was going to be great, but it doesn't tell you . You can't compare apples to apples at all, because of what they're measuring and how.

    That NBA website shows offensive and defensive "average speed" (whatever the that means). Last year, it says the fastest on defense were: Cunningham, Poeltl, and... Motiejunas? And for overall "average speed", it shows Motiejunas as being faster than DeRozan and just a hair slower than Lonnie Walker. That alone should tell you that it's meaningless.
    White was considerably faster in the 3/4 sprint at their respective combines, when they were both young. Now Cun has been around for 10 years or so - there's no way he's faster than White.


    White's sprint time would make him one of the fastest in any combine in the last 10 years (maybe longer). He would have been the fastest in 3 or 4 combines in that timespan. And of the few guys who were faster, probably half never made it in the NBA. He's quick enough to blow past a majority of defenders. If he's improved skills and confidence in the offseason, it's going to be hard to keep him off the floor.

    That's all it is with this kid. It's truly amazing what confidence can do for someone.

    Damn, I always reach a point where I don't think there's actually people who still judge others based on how long they leave their hair or what they do with it. And then a re like you comes along and reminds me that, even though it's 2020, some folks just never made it past the turn of the century, mentally.
