Do u think players like Al Jefferson, kevin durant, or kevin martin would still avg as much or close to as much numbers their doing now on a better team?

Like would Al Jeff avg 20 and 10 or close to it with a team like the blazers, or the suns?

Would Kevin Durant avg 25 points or close to it with a team like the bulls, hornets, etc.?

thoughts?

Well it depends if they are being traded for players in the position they play or are they just added to the team.

Al Jefferson is one of the best pf/centers in the NBA especially now with Yao out, should he be traded to the Blazers he's definitely still near a 20-10 guy, depending on who they trade for him (probably Oden or Aldridge) but either way he should maintain his stats there because of Portland's lack of offense aside from Roy. On the Suns he'd be about a 15-8 guy, if they keep Amare (not likely), otherwise Nash could make Jefferson a 25-10 guy easy.

Kevin Durant is one of the best scorers in the game and could easily drop 25-30ppg in Chi-town since Gordon's departure (avged 21ppg) as Durant is a much better scorer and could thrive off Rose's slashing and passing ability. In New Orleans he could easily avg 30+ppg because the Hornet's have an extremly weak offense (ranked 26th in team ppg) Chris Paul is a great passer and both he and Durant could feed off one another in New Orleans while Okafor, West and Posey/Stojacovic could play defense and hit open jumpers.

It also mainly depends which team these players join, they could probably maintain their stats on a team in position 4-8 in the playoffs. The top 3 teams for both conferences (LA, San Antonio, Denver in the West and Orlando, Cleveland, Boston in the East) already have enough talent, and players like Durant/Jefferson would not have the same effect they do in OKC/MIN. (Jefferson on the Magic as starting PF would be awesome though lol)

they wouldn't have to but that doesn't mean they're not as good of players.

pretty much what ralph said, if the player is truly a star player he will find a way to produce. **** even phony stars do it from time to time.

yea sure ralph

hahaha that was pretty funny.

Ralph (Raph) did make some good points though didnt he. Those players would have an easier time with more talent around them.
