I’m not ready to say this team is better than last year’s. Different and good in different ways. Last year’s team was really good.
If Corey’s shot fully comes back (I can’t imagined it won’t), if Fabian progresses quite a bit over the next few months, if Ced can get his 3pt shooting to about 30% on 3 or so attempts per game, if Deeky is able to contribute like we think he can, if Nate keeps improving and doesn’t hit a wall, then we will be better. All of those things don’t necessarily have to happen but a few of them do.
The biggest upgrade between last year and this year right now is Galen Robinson this year vs. last. Adding a credible 3pt shot has made a world of difference with his game.
