MSM’s 40 time coming out of HS was 4.77, faster than Martin’s 4.82, according to ESPN. As a matter of fact, MSM had much better testing across the board, as you can see below.S-M does not have the wing span, speed or experience of Martin. Indeed, I think it more likely he will replace Barber than Martin. But, to the real point, replacing seven is a lot harder than replacing one. In the first month or so we are going to have seven guys out there who will have limited experience playing with each other. There will not be ten veterans knowing what to do with one guy working himself up to speed. Additionally, there is the question of pure talent. People are assuming the new guys will be as flat out talented as the guys they are replacing.
They’re both about 6’3”. I couldn’t find wingspan measurements.
Sure, Martin had the edge in experience. Fortunately, he missed a lot of games, so MSM could gain valuable experience.
