The G LEAGUE Player That Carried The Heat To The Finals...

  • Published on May 29, 2023 veröffentlicht
  • Less than 2 years ago, Caleb Martin was cut by the Charlotte Hornets… seemingly ending his brief NBA career. A forgettable player that made little impact in the league, and was just another guy that got some run in the G League but couldn’t make it in the NBA… he just wasn’t talented enough… not a good enough scorer… didn’t bring enough to the table… Now, he won eastern conference finals MVP (well he didn’t but he should’ve) and just made the NBA Finals - and the Heat could not have done it without him… A career 8 PPG scorer that was arguably the best player in a series that featured Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Jimmy Butler. But where did this guy come from? How do you go from cut by the Hornets… to starting for the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals?

    In Charlotte, they had this so called "fully Martinized" moments when both twins play together. Cody is more of a defender while Caleb is the better shooter. The arrival of Oubre and drafting of Bouknight made Hornets GM decide to let go of Caleb

      ​@TJ Maybe that was true in HS/college, but Caleb is the better defender now; check out their respective FiveThirtyEight RAPTOR stats. That narrative has kept being repeated with nothing to back it up, as three out of the four years they've been in the league, Caleb's defensive rating has been higher than Cody's.
      Cody is still the playmaker/facilitator out of the two, able to be a floor general when needed. He's always gotten twice as many assists as Caleb.

    It's the Heat development plus the drive of the players. The draft is often overrated anyway, people act like we ain't never seen busts.

      The draft isn’t overrated, player development is underrated.

    • peamut
      peamut 3 months ago +8

      @Marcus Jackson Nah, that’s false. Players drafted in the second round can be just as good as many first round picks if you help them put in the work.
      Of course, getting a high draft pick for large upside players like Victor Wembanyama is also important, but don’t act like player development doesn’t mean a thing. Hell, even players like Wemby ARE going to need development when they enter the league.

      @peamut Yea it was just a typo, i forgot to put development is "underrated". If teams did a better job at developing their draft talent they would actually turn out better.

    The best thing to happen to Miami was Herro going down. Martin, Robinson and Strus wouldn't have gotten the same run if Tyler was still in the rotation. Plus, from scouting to development to coaching/front office, Charlotte is as poorly run a franchise as there is in the NBA.

      @Garrett Short nah, Cody was the better player. Caleb has surpassed him since going to Miami but Cody had the higher potential. If he gets to Miami the same leap will happen for him. I think Cody’s stock just jumped tremendously, every contender is about to try and trade for him. If I’m Miami, I’m trading Tyler Herro for PJ Washington and Cody Martin and I’m making Caleb Martin my starting SG.

    The heat are why I say if you make the NBA you have a chance, if you show in minutes what another player won't show in 30 you're gonna get pt especially in the playoffs, people acting like guys out there didn't get there chance are full of it, if you made the NBA you got your chance it's just about making the most of it.

    It’s fit and opportunity for a lot of players. Obviously everyone in the league is good at basketball, it’s just wether the playbook and their role mesh with their style. Some players are not wired to be role players which is why some guys explode when you design offense around them (Rockets Harden, Kicks Brunson etc..). Unfortunately it’s the same reason guys like Westbrook struggle when they’re not the 1st option.

    Jimmy beat him in every major stat category while being double teamed most of the time and having the best defenders on him. It’s not close.

  • Sonny Kelevra
    Sonny Kelevra 3 months ago

    It’s crazy how every team doesn’t mimic Miami’s approach when it comes to their work ethic. When people say “how did he come from nowhere to this” (and they say that a lot about Heat players) it’s obvious. There are 400 players in the NBA. There isn’t a massive drop off between mr 400 and mr 401 or even between mr 200 and mr 600. It’s not crazy to say the 1000 most talented basketball players on the planet can play in the NBA. One of the main variables that separate the winners from the losers if work ethic. And you know going into the Heat you’re going to get worked like dogs. So when people say The Heat are unbelievable at discovering talent, that is true to an extent but their actual skill is making sure they squeeze 100% effort out of their players. And that can turn a 4/10 player into a 6 or 7/10 player.

      @TP no, it’s that people don’t realize how empty stats can really be as a measurement of value.
      28 ppg on 42% shooting is way worse than 19 ppg on 60/48/88 splits.
      Value in basketball is so much more than just “this player averaged 28 7 7 clearly he is better” because the context surrounding those averages is infinitely more important than the stats themselves.
      And the context is that butler had the ball 10 times as much as martin and didn’t do nearly as much in comparison to the amount of opportunities he had. Butler had a great game one, but in games 2 and 3 played objectively worse than Martin in 2 who shot 11 of 16 to butlers 12 of 25 and Vincent in 3 who ended up with 29 on good efficiency compared to butlers 14 on mediocre efficiency.
      Butler outright sold games 4, 5, and 6. And in game 7 shot 12 of 28 from the field where martin shot 11 of 16 from the field.
      The context is that butler had a great game one, ok game 2 and 7 while martin created a ton of value out of only 11 attempts a game and arguably played better in 5 out of those 7 games

    • Nightrain92
      Nightrain92 3 months ago

      Martin had an absurd offensive rating and crazy shooting splits. Basically, the star of the team always gets those individual awards, Kobe over Gasol in 2010 is a good example. But make no mistake about it: There was a strong case that Martin deserves it, but Jimmy isn't undeserving, mainly because of his defense. But I think both players couldn't care less about a ECF MVP

    I mean I hear ye but who knows herro coulda balled and they still make the finals it is is a cool story but with him on the bench still with a healthy herro it’s still possible the heat make the finals but I like the fit better than herro he doesn’t need the ball as much just scores within the flow of the offense. he shoulda won the mvp tho imo butler had a few dud games. They need more from bam on offense he is a big part of their zone defense, if he could average like 20 pts they wouldn’t need the bench scoring but they are so lucky they started getting that bench scoring at the perfect time this year. Also Duncan still sucks at defense but he been showing up on offense here lately

      This is the thing, people who think he could have get it over Butler aren't checking the stats. Their WATCHING the GAMES.
      Nobody said Jimmy didn't deserve it, ofc he did he was awesome. But Martin was awesome too and there is an argument for him IF YOU WATCH THE GAMES

      ​@Magic Sam Jimmy legit lead the team in scoring, assist and steals in the series and when Jimmy played good the team won. Calab only had 1 really impactful game and Jimmy still out scored him and had more assist and steals.

      Yeah... Hero is a 20 ppg player. The only difference is that he's expected to do that. Martin is a big under dog story that people love to see. Herro would've done the same thing if not more since we have seen Herro ether the Celtics.

      ​@Caleb H Herro would shoot erratic shots, create turnovers and Play bad defence. Caleb played great, did not rush shots, small ammount of tournovers and good defence. Thanks to Herro there was one more player WHO benefited. Duncan Robinson and I havent seen Duncan playing do good past two years. Cutting, creating, fighting.

      @Caleb Hppg doesn’t matter if you don’t play defense. Turn the ball over, and don’t shoot at high efficiency.
      Caleb having 60/48/88 splits on 11 attempts a game while playing much better defense is infinitely more valuable than anything herro would have brought to the table.

      NAh watch the games, he created his own hype, all credits to the work he put in
      Maybe he will fall down, maybe he will stay at this level or even exceed it idc I'll remember this run by Miami and how much he contributed

    • Bababooeeeey
      Bababooeeeey 3 months ago +2

      @Pika InParis i watched the game last night, Miami dominated and Caleb Martin had like 25 points if i remember right. You’re right he did create the hype very deservedly. I was simply commenting on how fast this league and its fans build up a player. The guys probably going to get the bag this off-season because of it. More power to him

    • Pika InParis
      Pika InParis 3 months ago

    Stop this nerrative. Jimmy deserved the MVP. It's his leadership, his gravity to get attention, his playmaking, that allows Martin to perform this well. Plus Jimmy was still putting up pts, blks, and steals while doing all that mentioned above. He deserved it more than anyone else. Martin was for sure the second best and not far off, but Jimmy earned it.

    Because we will literally forget he ever existed in 10 years time and he could be out of the league within 4 years
    So it's good we giving him his flowers now
    MVPs are for hall of famers and real play makers

      Nah bro, if you take out butler and leave this roster they wouldn’t have stood a chance against the Celtics, the Celtics defense was primarily focus on stopping butler which allowed for Martin to shine. At the end of the day tho, Butler locked up Tatum and brown and was the leader to that team.
