Yesterday's game I didn't get to watch the second half but towards the end of the 2nd quarter you could see him building confidence. He got a couple free throws, then a nice dunk on a fast break then he came back and finally hit a 3.
Dude could be real good. Also, remember this is summer league and I feel a guy like Mclemore benefits more from a offense with a big man in the middle like cousins who will command attention, and in summer league there aren't many offensively talented bigs. That post and kick out combo could be huge.
Absolutely. He will benefit more from that. Still, he should rise to the top in summer league. The competition should be nothing for him considering his draft status. Like Ray Ray early in his career, McLemore biggest challenge will be to improve his ball handling and ability to create his own shot. This year, he will have to be a catch and shoot or come off of screen guy. His jumper is a thang of beauty though
