MCW

The kid is playing his heart out against the defending champs. 20pts, 12asts, 9 STEALS. The Sixers are up 2. How fitting it would be for them to win against the Heat in the wake of Allen Iverson's retirement?

He sure has a lot of 3's for someone who supposedly can't shoot.

MCW looks amazing at this

MCW looks amazing at this point. He's everywhere today. I know it's only one game, but I'm impressed right now.

Also got 7 rebounds. Talking

Talk about stuffing the stat sheet. Good win for the Sixers , they showed a lot of heart overall (Good things for the future of course, still just 1 game). Don't forget Evan Turner's big game- 26 points (10-19 shooting), 4 rebs, 5 Assists.

it was a great win.. starting

it was a great win.. starting the game out going 23-2 was just laughably exciting.. tony wroten also looks like he can be a solid contributor.

MCW

IM so tight you beat me to making a post about him and the sixers lol. but seriously though this kid can play, he's so relentlest. IM loving the way this sixers team is playing, they're so active on both ends but they are shining on Defense because their length.
MCW future star in this league. Micheal Mother F#cking Carter Williams

Can he break the streak...

...of Syracuse busts? 'Melo has been the only one who's even remotely lived up to expectations that I can think of. For reals though, he's out Chris-Paul-ing Chris Paul right now. 4 3PM's?! 7 STEALS?!?! SO glad I drafted him in the 12th round in my fantasy league lmao

I'm not jumping the gun, but

I'm not jumping the gun, but I'm also impressed. I'm also surprised how well he's played along Evan Turner in this game. Hopefully they continue to build a solid cohesion.

Cmon man do you really think

Cmon man do you really think Waiters is a bust??? I think he's pretty solid. (Glen Taylor sucks reply)

By the way, MCW is a freaking beast! He sure impressed tonight. Wow, 76ers beat the defending champs. Amazing game from him and the whole team.

Welp, I was wrong about MCW.

Welp, I was wrong about MCW. I know it's one game but I think it's safe to say he's putting his name in the running for ROY

What a ridiculous stat line

What a ridiculous stat line tonight, especially against one of the best defensive teams in the league. Not good for me though, I put money on Oladipo to win ROY....

3 rebounds and 1 steal away

3 rebounds and 1 steal away from a quad double? That is absolutely amazing. I am shocked

1. Nearly half those steals

1. Nearly half those steals came against LeBron too, whether they were passes to LeBron or stripping him when he drove. Just crazy.

2. And that, my friends, is why I was so high on MCW. He's going to have a lot of growing pains, but outside of maybe Antetokounmpo, he might have the highest potential in this past year's draft. I said before the season began that I thought ROY would come down to him and Oladipo. It's only one game, but I feel pretty good about that prediction.

He actually only had two

He actually only had two steals on LeBron but still, two steals on LeBron in your first game is an accomplishment itself.

I'm not positive, but I think

I'm not positive, but I think he had two steals in a row to end the game on LeBron drives, and he also intercepted an alley oop pass to LeBron in the 1st quarter, so that's at least 3/9 if that's true.

Regardless, 9 steals is absolutely insane. And he could have had like 16 assists if his teammates didn't miss uncontested layups lol.

Holy Shyt did that just happen???

Weren't we supposed to be tanking for Andrew Wiggins from day 1???Aren't we supposed to be an historically bad team?

Eff that for 1 game, we just beat the 2x defending champs and showed crazy heart doing so.

MCW, E.T, Thad Young, Nerlens Noel and Spencer Hawes are very talented young players, hell Wroten and Moultrie still have potential too, and if they add a franchise player via the draft and save some money for a Free Agent to lead them this team will be a bonafide championship contender in 3-5 years

He only had one turnover too

He only had one turnover too which was one of the most impressive things about the rest of the night. Playing against the Heat you always see Chalmers and Cole turn the opposing PG's especially with LeBron playing the passing lanes.

When the Sixers drafted him I wasn't exactly thrilled about him as a prospect because of his suspect shooting stroke and he seemed to be turnover prone. Well tonight he shot the lights out and didn't turn it over so needless to say he was incredibly impressive. I don't expect him to consistently put up Chris Paul or Rondo #'s as a rookie but he showed the ability to effect the game with his defense and run the break and finish which will be important for him moving on. If he continues to develop his outside shot at this pace it will be a bonus and he could be really good.

I want to hear from all you

I want to hear from all you guys over the next week when he shoots 1-11 from 3's, averages more turnovers than assist and they go winless.
Seriously, historic debut and good luck to him but you all need to calm down!

I agree with you. I am not a

I agree with you. I am not a fan of MCW. In fact i will be surprised if he shoots over 40% for the season.

This could well be his best game of the season.....

If this isn't his best game

If this isn't his best game of the season, that would be incredible. This will likely be one of the top 5 performances for any PG this season.

The Assists, Steals and

The Assists, Steals and Rebounds were expected...although 9 steals is still impressive. But what shocked me the most when I was looking over his stats was his fg% and low TO numbers! The curious thing about MCW is that he hasn't been able to play at that level consistently. He would put up giant numbers across the board for 'Cuse and in the next game look abysmal. If he can just find a way to play with some consistency from game to game he will be an extra special player.

Agreed. I think most people

Agreed. I think most people that have paid a lot of attention to him over the past 2 years knew he was capable of blowing up for games like this. It's consistency that will be the key for him. He's going to have a lot of bumps along the road over the next year or two, but if he can get that jumpshot to be just slightly effective, I think he'll turn out to be an above average starting PG.

You can already tell he put in a ton of work on his ball-handling just watching from his college games to pre-season, and now the first regular season game. He looks far more confident with his handle.

Awesome, but

That probably is the greatest rookie debut of my recent memory. That stat line is absolutely ridiculous! Def a talented basketball player and set the bar for ROY way up there.

I'm an admitted Jim Boehim

I'm an admitted Jim Boehim hater in that other than Melo his players are NBA busts, but borderline quadruple double in your debut is probably the best rookie debut in the history of the NBA.

Shooting

Regardless of how how he plays from here on, everyone who said he can't shoot is being proved wrong. His shot looks good.

This is something I noticed in pre season when he was drilling them IN TRANSITION. Non shooters don't even pull up in transition but he is doing so with confidence.

Definitely have to see if he

Definitely have to see if he can consistently stroke it. Confidence has never been an issue with him though. He did the same thing at Syracuse, and obviously we all know he struggled with his shot mightily.

But the arc on his shot that he had in high school looks like it's finally returned. That could be a huge deal for him.

Oh man, rewatching his highlights from last night just makes me smile so big.
