    ^ This. A more athletic version of Eddie Jones.

    All these T-Mac, PG comparison are ridiculous. Prepare to be disappointed.

    I'd actually be thrilled with that. Eddie was a guy who could slot into any team really and help a lot, elite defensively, smooth offensively..didn't really force it too much, did a bit of everything. I can see the comparisons. Could see Terrence maybe slightly better shooting the ball eventually but yeh, I would like that.

    T Ross put up 51 on 29 shots in a single game.

    Over the next six he scored 60 total on 61 shots.

    Not sure why consistency is such an issue, but it can't help that Casey seemed to blame him for the loss that 51 point night and has tapered off his minutes ever since.
    well ever since that game, except for utah hes had horrible shooting.

    3/9
    4/13
    7/10 (utah game)
    3/12
    2/8
    3/9

    that 51 point game was a complete anomaly.

    Agreed, he's a better shooter than these past few games have indicated though. Maybe the 51 points and the upcoming dunk contest have gotten to his head?

    Last season he started to play terribly when the dunk contest was coming up and after it ended as well. Casey called him out on focusing too much on that "silly" competition.

    I still think he's more like Ray Allen than anybody else. Jesus Shuttleworth was also in the dunk contest in his rookie year. If he's a hybrid of T-Mac/Allen man we've got a gem.
    Yes

    Allen Houston.

    However Ross won`t be compared to anyone if he can`t improve on the following areas: Be more aggrassive, get involved even if you don`t have the ball and be able to create your own shot while moving with the ball.

    Agreed, but he's been trending upwards since the Gay trade. He's doing what he's doing, despite being fairly raw on both ends of the floor. It doesn't seem like he's even close to his ceiling yet.

    And he's definitely come a long way since last season where most were crying for Andre Drummond.

    How many years did it take for Paul George to develop into what he is today? I don't see why Ross can't develop into something along the lines of DeRozan but with a 3 point shot maybe replacing some of the midrange. Be can already get to the hoop and once he adds some weight and improves his handles he'll do it more often.

    So if we can agree he'll at least be within shouting distance offensively of DD, you factor in his better than average defence now with potential elite defence in the future, don't you at least get close to George?

    What? He averages 10 points, and gets more than 10 points in roughly half his games? Why is that inconsistent? That falls exactly in line with what you'd expect.

    I guess he's inconsistent in terms of perception. You never know if he's going to score 8pts, 20pts, or 50pts

    Yes, but more in the sense that it's a very wide range that averages out to 10.

    Consider this stretch of games for example:



    Points are third-last column. Just look at the gaps.

    Nilanka said it too, you never really know what Ross you're gonna get on a given night.

    Trade DeRozan for a big "meatier" small forward? Are you guys forgetting Landry Fields????

    Because he's not getting boxscores like 8, 12, 8, 14, 10... his scores are more like 2, 6, 20, 16, etc etc

    I completely agree he is inconsistent. I was just pointing out that the way the poster presented that was entirely wrong and did not support the "inconsistent" argument.
