So, it was during a bit of garbage time run that it really hit me that either A) Luke Babbitt currently is a really bad basketball player or B) Luke Babbitt looks nervous beyond approach. Either way, this guy already looks like a total bust. I literally cant conceive of a situation in the next 3 years in which we win 3 games in a row and he was a valuable member of the team for each game. The weird thing is that you dont get drafted 16th without a plethora of those basic skills, which seems to absolutely vanish once he is on the court. Ive watched a few college highlights and it seems like he benefitted greatly from playing in a weaker conference.
So Please, give me any reason to think that trading Martell away for Babbitt was a good call.
