Areas of Concern Stewart’s old-school game is a problem, as the modern NBA game rarely dumps the ball to the post anymore. He’s also got issues in the post — he’s more of a finisher in the post than a playmaker, so Stewart often forces the issue, resulting in turnovers or bad shots. Stewart’s perimeter shot is not reliable at this point, and his ceiling could be unlocked if he can hit them at a respectable rate.
Basketball is fun. Even in a meaningless game between two opponents with nothing left to play for this regular season, we Raptors fans were treated to an excellent showing from some deep bench players, got to witness Norman Powell do it again against the Bucks, and got to witness Eric Bledsoe do the exact opposite again against the Raptors. Good times!
