Shannon Shorter is not a PG

Will he be released too? Very poor decision maker. Definitely not a PG

Watching game 1 (very poor decisions) and the first half of game 2, it didn't breed too much confidence in him to be honest. The way the Kings played D, Adam Doyle could have dominated them in the crunch.

Instead of making excuses just admit you're an idiot and don't know what you are talking about.

If he didn't have a few bad turnovers (threw the ball off Drmic's back and two (correct) double dribble decisions) then he would have had a super star game. His season stats so far

14PPG @ 44%, 4.5RPG, 6APG (would be #1 in the league. Apparently not a good point guard), 2.5TPG, 1BPG

What a horrible player can we get rid of him.......

Randle didn't run half-court very well.

Helter-skelter, full-court basketball is Adelaide's style. It's a team that isn't meant to look like it's machined with fine precision

He must also not be a PG as he can play solid defence in the paint, unlike that other PG we had for the past 2 years who gave up 10-15pts a game. Blocked Newley on the drive. That other PG would've watched Newley drive by as he got himself setup for the inbounds pass.

I think he's been ok. Not Randle but maybe we were never going to win a title with JR. Shorter has an ugly 3 ball though.

Even though he made some jumpers tonight, I'm not sold on Shorter as a shooter. With the two pretty bad carry calls, I'm not overly sold on him as a PG either, but he has decent vision. Seems like a poor man's Moore to be honest - can do a little bit of everything.

TBH he is exactly what a PG should be... a true PG anyway. Ware and Randle.... aren't really point guards are they. They come down and try to score mostly. And pass as a secondary option.

Shorter is pretty good for what the 36ers need. Capable scorer but not looking to shake and bake and shoot a lot (Ware, Randle). Solid in other areas, rebounding etc

Shorter is pretty much what I expected him to be. A bit of everything without being absolutely outstanding, never thought he would put up the numbers here that he did in Turkey our local core is too good for that.
