Has Jeff Teague found his game?
Since Lou Will has been out dude has been BALLIN.
Everyone knows im rooting for him big time, I just hope he can keep it up and finally show people how good he is, his numbers at Wake Forest was no FLUKE!
It's great to see because I always thought he would maintain his need to score but he has truly evolved into a PG racking up a good amount of assists and making the right play. He still has some lulls where his defensive focus can be lacking and his turnovers can be head scratching. However Teague has developed nicely and picked up a few tips from Devin and Lou along the way he has been getting to the FT line nearly every game, it's refreshing to see. I'm happy for him and his raise coming this summer will be well deserved.
The way he dominated college and the way he did it for that half a season was ridiculous, I knew somebody with that type of talent would emerge sooner or later, i've been high on him from day 1 and everyone knows it, im just glad he's finally coming along.
The only thing I worry about with Jeff is the question mark surrounding whether or not he can be a cornerstone piece to a Championship caliber team. He and Al are the Hawks two best pieces going forward but I'm just not sold on that ever being enough to win a title.
Don't get me wrong, I love the way Teague has progressed but is he a Championship caliber PG?
I really like the developement of Teague this year. He is nice leader for this team and one of the most underrated athletes at his position. But are the Hawks a championship caliber team? No
They won't be one with him and won't be one with someone else, except CP3.
There are so many good athletic point guards in the league right now, that it is a real no go not to have one on your team - like the Lakers already found out...
Teague is all right imo, not better or worse than someone like Lawson this year who has trouble playing with consistency, like the whole Nuggets team.
People are negging me like I said Teague was a championship PG or something, All I said is he's starting to find himself in the NBA.
PPL on here after his rookie year threw him under the bus some said he'd be out the L after his rookie contract, some said he'd never be a starter just a good change of pace guard off the bench, my only point in making this forum is just to show ppl were wrong about Teague and I always knew he'd one day make a name for himself, just from the way he DOMINATED COLLEGE.
The words championship caliber PG never came out of my mouth, he's still got a long way to go, but he's got alot of potential and I dont think alot of people realize that.
My point about Teague is at one point in college he was considered the best player in the country and easily the best guard before he had that meltdown, if you remember some of his numbers and some of the games he had you know what im talking about, talent like that will one day come to light.
Since he's been in the L. ALL of his numbers have been up, people said he couldnt shoot after his rookie year, which was the dumbest thing I've ever heard about him because the guy shot 45% from 3 in college and at one point was shooting 58% from 3 in college, but this year he's shooting close to 40% from 3 on 3 attempts per game, not great, but not anywhere close to being bad.
Teague has it all in my opinion, he just has to keep riding his wave of confidence, cause he's easily a confidence type player, if it's broken he plays terrible, but if he has it he's awesome.
Just dont say I didn't tell yall so when Teague really starts shining.
What does a championship caliber PG mean anyways? Derek Fisher won multiple championships, does that make him a championship caliber PG?
IDK, lol I guess they think everyone is supposed to be Zeke or Magic, or they for some reason think he cant perform on that level(NBA FINALS), IDK what they are talkng about but.....................................
Stockton was the ultimate PG and never won a ring....
People on here always contradict themselves.
