The Mac McClung Era has begun
We’re all just living in it
Mac McClung began Summer League nearly attaining folk hero status. This high flying player was dumped by the Lakers organization after having a two=way contract. Playing assertively, he started as a good organizer for SL but has a reputation of a AAAA player that dominates the minors (he was also Rookie of the Year in G-League) but can’t hang in the pros.
Mac was a fun watch for a while in Summer League, until he irked fans by not being able or willing to get the ball to Wiseman, Kuminga or Moody and looking for his shot an awful lot.
The Mac-Wise connection did grow a little in the last game.
I am a bit curious what he looks like with a full training camp. My quick impression in Summer League was that Mac was a creative finisher, but had to be because he wasn’t getting all the way to the hoop on drives. Will the Kerrball motion offense unlock Mac’s Final Form? Stay tuned.
