    He reminds me a little bit of Isaiah. I think Mason is slightly more explosive, but IT is much faster(one of quickest players in the league). However, IT is definitely a better scorer than him. His ability to score inside is really good, and extremely impressive considering his size.
    I don't think Mason nor Fox are good playmakers, but Fox runs an offense better. Mason struggles to run the PnR game. The NBA game today is heavily dependent on it. Anytime we set a pick, he struggled reading the actions. Something he does well is driving and drawing all the defenders in, and then kicking it out. Aside from that, I don't see a lot of PG skills from Mason. Our offense suffered without a floor general. Running the offense through Skal is not ideal..

    Cooley was demonstrating what can happen. It should have Been delivered to Randle in the Lakers game.

    Yup, Cooley is an old school enforcer. Gets the boards, fills up space in the paint and has his team mates backs. Given his very limited skill set I am not sure how this throwback fits in the modern NBA but I hope he can stick. It is refreshing to see a guy who grits his teeth and gives the other guy something to whine about.

    I don't think he got a ton of opportunities last night. Joerger seemed pretty insistent on running the offense through the high post most of the time. When Mason was free to do his thing, good things happened way more often than when we ran those crappy high post sets.

    If Mason played starter minutes, he would probably average about 5 assists a game. Nothing earth shattering but if your backup PG can come off the bench and give you around 10 points a game, a few rebounds and a few assists....you've got yourself a good solid backup. If he can score with good efficiency and at least involve his teammates here and there, he will be a great backup for us.

    I agree that his offense is mediocre at best. He's just not gifted in that regard. Defense and rebounding is where he's got to make a big positive impact for this team.

    Right except he seems to be a poor rebounder with limited anticipation of where the ball will go.

    I think we saw him rebound the ball at the end of last year pretty well. If he puts his mind to it, he can do it.
