Title. There's no doubt a lot of accounts that completely mess up our timelines of history in our heads.
I'm not talking about "Egyptians are old" type of posts I sometimes see, I mean "gunpowder was invented before composite bows" (I have no idea, that's why I'm here) or something like that.
Edit: "What other some others" lmao okay me
Edit2: I completely know and understand that there were people in America before the Vikings came over to have a poke around. I'm in no way saying "The first people to be in America were European" I'm saying "When the Europeans discovered America" as in the first time Europeans set foot on America.
That's the whole post. I was looking back through Bucks draft history to see who they brought in after Giannis and realized that I had forgotten about this trade. The Bucks traded Norman Powell, a second round pick they had just drafted and a future 2017 first that the Raptors picked OG Anunoby with for Greivis Vasquez. Vasquez only played one injury plagued season with the Bucks, three games with Brooklyn the next season, and then was out of the league. Meanwhile, Norman Powell is a pretty valuable rotation wing and OG Anunoby is a key piece for the Raptors future as a good 3-and-D wing.
I always like to read the reactions at the time for these and even the initial thread on r/NBA pointed out how much that was to trade: https://www.reddit.com/r/nba/comments/3b5276/the_bucks_have_acquired_raptors_guard_grievis/
Alright let me explain. As a longtime fan of the Raptors and someone who has watched every Raptors game this season I truly believe Norman Powell is better then Fred Vanvleet and that the Raptors should be letting Vanvleet walk this offseason.
Norman Powell stats this year: 16 points,3.7 rebounds,1.8 assists and 1.2 steals a game
Fred Vanvleet stats this year 17.7 points/3.8 rebounds/6.6 assists and 2 steals a game
Norman Powell: 50% from the field / 40% from three/83% from the free throw line and a 62.3 TS
Fred Vanvleet: 41% from the field/ 39% from three/85% from the free throw line and a 55.3 TS
One more major stat that needs to be discussed also is 2 pt%
Norman Powell has a 2 pt% of 57%
Fred Vanvleet has a 2 pt% of 43%
Now some more slander to Fred Vanvleet.
**So I slandered Vanvleet but its now time to sell yo... keep reading on reddit ➡
If the MCU decides to bring the Osborns into Tom's Spider-Man, I'd love to see these two portray the characters. Tim and Matt have already played father and son in Interstellar, so I'd imagine it'd be easy for them to reestablish that bond.
Of course this is some fantasy/hypothesis. But let's say Norm figured out his game and becomes the same player like Bradley Beal, do we become serious title contenders?
