What do you guys think of his debut?

Me personally, I don't really care much about his poor shooting performance. A positive to me is that he attempted 23 shots, which is a good sign for a guy that was said to be passive. He does have to improve his ability to create his own shot so that in the future when his shot isn't falling, he can still help his team by getting to the line.

The coaching staff clearly

The coaching staff clearly pushed him to shot as much as possible. They ran several plays for him, which were executed well for the most part. Unfortunately, he just couldn't knock them down tonight.

I agree with you that today was a good sign for his development though. It'll be interesting to see how he shoots in his next game.

Very good defense from Ledo.

Very good defense from Ledo. He just shut down Bmack.

I've watched. There were some

I've watched. There were some good attempts but also a lot of Bmack's shots was bad. He couldn't escape from Ledo when he was on the floor. And there were no passes from him. He has a potential, nice mechanics and atlecism, but just didn't look like a future all star.
The question is if Kings would be able to manage his talent in a correct way.

Very true....I also believe

Very true....I also believe Ray McCallum is somebody to keep an eye on. He'll make some team very happy.

bmac! Wasnt people on here

bmac! Wasnt people on here doubting bennet because bmac was the sure fire thing for the number 1 pick? I dont know.
If your a sure fire thing you should be dominating summer league with that many shots. Nah, im just being funny but i hope he does well, his shot will obviously not be as bad in upcoming summer league games. Just sayin the number 1 pick is bennet, the cavs made their choice. Neither is a polished player with a definite edge so what can you do.

Yeah, he was told to shoot

Yeah, he was told to shoot and that is exactly what he did. His misses in the first half were really close to going in and looked good, but late in the game he had less legs and his shot got off. There was good and bad in his debut, he got 5 boards played okay defense and didn't defer when his shot didn't hit. He scored 5 points in 30 seconds and showed why he's a high level talent. The bad was that his handle still needs work, and that his shot didn't fall, but just like KCP did in Orlando, I suspect he'll also put up some 20 pt games when his shot starts falling.

You will all neg me but...

Taking 11 3 point attempts and only getting to the line 4 times isn't being aggressive... that's chucking, good scorers don't continue to shoot when their shot isn't falling, they take it to the paint, get fouled and find a rhythm that way...
The guy is an obvious talent, although he isn't a great off the dribble scorer, but in Sacramento's mess of an organization it won't be surprising to me if he is a disappoint to a Wesley Johnson level

Will you stop

This isn't the same organization. This thought process is really starting to upset me. Stop calling them a mess of an organization. They have a completely rebuilt front office, a new owner and the coach is changing the way things work on offense an defense. They will stress ball movement and transition, and want defense to be their identity. Hell, our starting line up aside from Cousin's will be full of new players. If B-Mac struggles it won't be because of this new Kings regime, it will be for another reason.

And by the way, he was being aggressive. Being a chucker or not, they were trying to show case his shot because thats where they intend to use him.

Poor game for him. He looked

Poor game for him. He looked like a kid trying to be a more assertive but not knowing how to. Being more aggressive doesn't mean that you completely disregard shot selection. He wasn't a good shooter in college just because of his mechanics. He shot good percentages also because he primarily took good shots. If the coaching staff is telling him to shot hunt with no regard for shot selection then they are doing him a disservice.
