For the first time in their life, the Martin twins were separated this offseason, with Caleb heading to Miami, while Cody stayed here in Charlotte. “That’s my best friend,” Cody told the Mac Attack when he joined Mac and Bone on Friday morning. “We been together forever and whether it was playing sports or whatever the case is, we’ve done everything together. It’s an adjustment; it’s still an adjustment.”
Both guys have seemed to make the most of the separation, as both are having career years so far this season. Caleb is averaging a career-high in points per game (7.6), field goal percentage (48.9%), effective field goal percentage (56.3%) and rebounds per game (3.2) while playing the most extensive minutes of his career so far this season in Miami. Cody, meanwhile has become an extremely important piece for the Hornets this season, posting his career-highs in points per game (8.6), field goal percentage (48.8%), 3-point field goal percentage (50.0%), effective field goal percentage (57.1%), free throw percentage (57.1%), assists (2.4) and steals (1.4). Not too bad for guys what are still supposedly adjusting.
Cody believes that the split, though, has had an impact.
“I think it’s helping us in our games individually, almost to a point to be able to selfishly think about yourself and not in a bad way.”
