That includes six games in which he scored 30 or more points, and a 22-game stretch late in the season in which he averaged 21.5 points per game.
Did we mention that he was just 19 years old last season?
But Mc Collum is clearly a talented, rising star at the shooting guard position.
But all of that changed in late December when guard Eric Bledsoe went down with a season-ending knee injury, opening up the opportunity for Booker.
From that point forward, Booker averaged 17.9 points in 34.7 minutes per game in 50 contests.
Wiggins will be pushed harder than ever before, both on offense and defense, to meet his immense talent.
If the will and the drive are there, he’ll transform into a superstar in no time.
Both players came into the league at a young age; they are/were unrefined but talented offensively; they both have the wingspan… The most obvious pick on our list is Houston Rockets guard James Harden. Harden is already well-established as a superstar, and he averaged 29.0 points per game last season.
He’s made four consecutive Western Conference All-Star teams, including two where he started and one where he dropped 29 points.At 20 years old last season, Wiggins averaged 20.7 points while elevating his shooting percentage to 45.9%.There’s still a ton of room for growth in the young man’s game, including room on his body to build more muscle. Tom Thibodeau is now the head coach of the T-Wolves.Before a star-studded crowd at the Staples Center, the Black Mamba dropped an astonishing 60 points on just 50 shots, outscoring the opposing team by himself in the fourth quarter.But for one group of fans, the night the highlight of the night ook place in the stands: Kobe Bryant has joined Khloe Kardashian by the side of Lamar Odom.Booker will be that much better coming into his second season in the NBA, after hitting the weight room, filling out his frame, and working on his outside shooting. After La Marcus Aldridge left Portland for San Antonio, there were suddenly plenty of openings on the offensive end for the young shooting guard to get more touches.
