Terance Mann on support from GM's "The oneѕ that didn't draft mе? 48th pick? I don't carе about that ѕ--t."

The NBA GM survey is out, and it revealed some interesting choices. This year, Terance Mann received votes as one of the players to have a breakout year. Instead of using it as an inspiration, the Los Angeles Clippers small forward seemed to use it to get back to GMs for his draft night snub. 

Terance Mann: I don't carе about that ѕ--t

Mann was drafted as the 48th pick by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2019 NBA draft. He proved that he did not deserve to be chosen that low after making an impact right away for the Clippers. Terrance averaged 2.4 points and 1.3 rebounds in his rookie year but bounced back in his sophomore year with 7.0 points and 3.6 rebounds. Mann scored 39 points in the Western Conference Semifinals against the Utah Jazz last year, which probably got the general managers thinking and regretting their decision not to draft him sooner.

It's a clear message from Terence. He remains focused on his goals and will not get affected by pressure to perform better. But also, getting votes to have a breakout year is never a bad thing. That means the general managers are taking notice of his performance recently. It's up to Mann to use that as positive motivation or fuel for revenge.

How accurate are GM surveys on the breakout star?

This year, the player expected to have a breakout year went to Jaren Jackson Jr. of the Memphis Grizzlies. Last year, it was Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and Michael Porter Jr. MPJ stepped up in the playoffs in the absence of the injured Jamal Murray, as reported by Sideline Sources

The Denver Nuggets forward was even offered a max deal because management believes he will be one of the cornerstones of the franchise in the future. However, the most improved player award went to Julius Randle, who put in the work to help the New York Knicks make the playoffs. Randle was not considered among those to have a breakout year in 2021. 

In 2020, the MIPY went to Brandon Ingram, who was voted 4th in the 2019 GM survey behind De'Aaron Fox, Jaren Jackson Jr., and Jayson Tatum. This shows that the GM picks are not really accurate because a breakout year could have a lot of meaning. Winning the Most Improved Player Award or 6th Man of the Year could serve as a parameter, but the impact is not always reflected on the stats sheet. 

For Mann, he must help his team first in whatever is asked of him. Being too focused on scoring or adding rebounds or blocks could make him shine individually, but the team might suffer. The important thing is to win the championship, and the contracts and awards will come after.
