The NBA regular season has been in full swing. The stars are competing to win the title of MVP, while the rookies are still competing for the title of the best rookie. Marcelin is still ranked high in the ranking of the best rookies. Two, you must know that he was the No. 6 pick at the time. This 20-year-old rookie has already played data close to the All-Star level, averaging 17.1 points per game. Such an underestimated rookie, so who was Marcelin’s template at that time? ?
Who is Marcelin’s template?
The answer is Paul George.
Marcelin was born in 2002. He is 1.96 meters tall and weighs 95 kilograms. He is from Canada. When he joined the Latin American NBA Academy in Mexico City at the age of 16, no one was optimistic about him, but Marcelin did not give up. He trained hard and finally made a name for himself. After two years of college life, Marcelin was elected the best player of the year in the Pacific 12 school league. He decided to participate in the NBA draft. Individuals are very similar in terms of body shape and playing style, with strong explosive power, outstanding athletic ability, soft shooting touch, and very good defensive awareness. The difference is that Paul George is stronger and has stronger finishing ability in the interior. The offensive end relies more on shooting touch, and breakthroughs are not a strong point. But he is only 20 years old this year, and I believe he will grow up slowly as time goes by. For the Pacers, it was really surprising to be able to pick up Marceline at the sixth pick. Marcelin’s technical characteristics of being able to hold the ball or off the ball are very suitable for the mainstream of today’s league.
Of course, the game is not just about individuals, but teamwork is the most important thing. The Pacers assigned Marcelin’s roles quite reasonably. Halliburton was responsible for field control and organization, and Marcelin was responsible for scoring and defense. The data is lower than that of the number one pick of the Magic, Banchero. Let’s talk about it. Banchero is the core of the team’s tactics, and most of the tactics revolve around him. The third offensive option other than Hilde, the ball is limited. In this case, Marcelin’s score is only four points less than Banchero’s. In the playoff area, while the Magic are at the bottom, Banchero’s data is still a bit watery.
As long as Marcelin strengthens his movement control skills later, he is very likely to become an All-Star player in the future, and it is very important to stay healthy. Look at the talented players before the Pacers, Jr. O’Neal, Grant Jay, Oladipo, and TJ Warren were all destroyed by injuries, and finally disappeared from everyone. I hope he can grow to the level of Marcelin’s template-Paul George.
