Orlando Magic's best player?
I was looking at the Orlando Magic roster and thinking of that young core who is the best player now and who do you think will have the best career?
Right now I would go with the double-double machine of Vucevic I can see him as another Mehmet Okur (when in Utah, but with better rebounding)
This next part is really hard as they have guys with amazing potential in Vucevic, Harris, Harkless and Oladipo.
I stated what I think Vucevic will become, so All-Star berth(s) to me would not be a surprise.
Harris I believe will have similar career trajectory as Antwan Jamison in the fact he will be an above average scorer as a stretch 4, can easliy see him having a 17-18ppg season on a play-off bound Magic squad.
Oladipo (My fave rookie and 3rd fave player) to me will be a lot like a guard that the Magic already have in Arron Afflalo, however I feel he will be better as he has a great ability to get to the line and his intensity is even higher. He has already started improving his shot and really think he can become an All-Star.
Harkless to me will become a Trevor Ariza type, I am not sure why but I just don't think his potentially offensively will be there. He will be a great defender and play-maker as well.
So after all that my conclusion would be: Vucevic or Oladipo, obviously it is tough as they are all so young and I really look forward to following this team and watch it grow.
I think Tobias Harris is the best player on that squad right now he has been really good for them last year with about 17 a game.. I think he can be a good scorer as this upcoming 3rd year pro gets his feet soaked.. I like this kid a lot and see him having a good career but I don't think he will have the best career I think Oladipo will have a great career he gets to the rack he can shoot the three (yes I said it) he has great defense averaging 2.3 stls a game and he has shown that he can play point If he sticks to this position he will bring harm to those little PG's in this league like Tyreke Evans did his rookie year
I would guess Vucevic, but it could easily be Oladipo. If Vucevic develops his low post game, he could be an All-Star in the future. He is already a tremendous rebounder and has very nice shooting touch. Oladipo could be something special if he refines his ball handling and shooting, though.
Not sure if he'll ever be more than a 3rd option for them, but I really like Nicholson as a role player on this team. Absolutely love his offensive game in the post, both face up and back to the basket. once he gets stronger on the boards and on d, he'll be hugely valuable for this team. Can really shoot too.
Nicholson kinda reminds me of Roy Hibbert his rookie year Raw clumsy looking but shows potential I like him
everybody thinks everybody is gonna be an all star
All I did was compare oladipo to Tyreke his rookie year and Tyreke isn't an all star believe it or not if the magic grow up together they are gunna be a problem and that's without Jameer hedo aflallo and glen davis they need to get rid of those contracts
Going out on a limb and saying oladipo will end up the best player on the team. I can see the magic marketing him as the 'face of the franchise'.
