HoopsHype Doug McDermott rumors

July 18, 2014 Updates

Have you watched much video on Synergy? Doug McDermott: I watch a lot of Synergy. I don't watch Synergy on myself. I like to look at other players who I look up to. I think Synergy is so nice for guys if they want to reflect on what they're doing well, what they're doing wrong, but I don't watch myself a lot. KP: Do you think your reputation as a "shooter" undersells your ability to score in different ways, especially in the post? DM: I think so. I think being known as a shooter, guys tend to look at me as I can only spot up and shoot 3s. But I think the people who know are the people who watch Synergy, watched a lot of my games. I can score a lot of different ways and not just spot up. ESPN.com

The Chicago Bulls’ first-round pick out of Creighton lit up the Cox Pavilion so brightly – 7-for-12 overall, 5-for-9 from the arc, 12-for-12 from the line and 31 points against Denver’s squad – that anyone making a case for all the alleged other things in his game would have been drowned out, anyway, by the crowd’s reactions to each bucket. Or would that be McBucket? “I’m fine with that,” McDermott said afterward, his proficiency outside sparking the Bulls’ group to 19-for-36 on 3-pointers. “Really, that’s my biggest strength right now.” NBA.com
