Draft tonight or........?
The Pelicans had to start several d-league caliber players this past season I wouldnt look much into Davis' defensive metrics because that roster was a mess.
Davis is definitely a good defender...
So it made no sense to let Parsons out of his contract just to make him a restricted free agent. Here's why it happened:
Derrick Rose's left handed in-n-out dribble.
Not the best example but here's what it looks like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkhW0xkSe0Q
It's so hard not to bite because Rose's left to...
He is a consistent mismatch, there's no one in the league with his combination of verticality, coordination, and quickness. You label his skill set basic but few were able to stop Davis and he got...
A couple things on Horry:
He ranks 25th all-time in playoff winshares with 18.23, every player with at least 15 winshares is in or will be in the HOF. Like Chronz said, the name of the game is...
You are starting off with this but isolating isn't a primary goal of any NBA team because it's a below average proposition unless there's a mismatch. The thing is, Davis creates mismatches regularly...
I'm really not sure what you are studying especially when you say Davis' game is basic. After watching AD 50 times or so over the last two years, I'm confident he ends up as a top 10-20 player...
That's not really true about inefficiency not mattering. I think Brent has the league set up well to reflect real life value. There will be some anomalies like any stat based ranking of player but...
10 Team standard but 6 points for passing tds
RB Montee Ball
RB Andre Ellington
WR Demaryius Thomas
WR Michael Floyd
TE Julius Thomas
Flex CJ Spiller
Can someone provide some insight on the WR situation for the Patriots?
I expect Butler, Oladipo, and Tyreke to live up to this list.
All of the great players get to the FT line at really high rates its a top 3 requite to be a star. To call TS% a flopper stat is to show a fundamental misunderstanding of the game.
Why wouldn't Lebron cut? He no longer needs to play PF and he's about to turn 30, no need for all that excess weight when the gain in quickness will be more important with the roster he has.
I can't see how it is enough just because to win the title Derrick would have to be at least back to his MVP form and that's asking a lot imo after all this time away from the game. Even then, I...
Jimmy isn't going to be a number one offensive option but as a complimentary piece he's gonna make a huge impact offensively because he's a guy who gets to the line at a really high rate and should...
Well the comp I would make is the Parsons/Hayward contract, that's about where I see Jimmy at in terms of impact if not even more than those two guys by the time he hits RFA. With his free throw...
How much cap room will they really have though when Jimmy is going to get a monster offer, probably the max?
I'd like to see what Thibs could do with Ish or maybe look at Josh Selby. Both guys have more athleticism than skill but I think that's something Thibs could work with.
He really didnt overpay though, $20 million for two years of Asik and Lin is a steal and then he dumped them both without really losing anything when most people said it would be impossible to trade...
Pelicans were decimated by injuries, Davis' best month was at the end of the year when the Pelicans were starting Brian Roberts, Luke Babitt, and Alex Ajinca and beating teams like Miami.
They've still got $15 million to spend and they already replaced Parsons, they will be in the playoffs
This is from a thread titled "NBA Teams With Hometown Players"
He could probably get Boozer for $4 million but I think that's a terrible fit
