View Full Version : Rank YOUR team's top scoring options (with PPG)

I put this in the Nets forum, but I thought it would be interesting to hear about other teams as well. For teams with drastic changes in personnel such as the Nets, Mavericks, Wizards, Hornets its hard to judge the chemistry of our team without actually seeing them play together but hey, there's still 3 months left. It's an NBA forum. We are allowed to make predictions haha. With that said rank your team's top 5-7 scoring options along with PPG.

For the Brooklyn Nets:


Brook Lopez - 21.0 he averaged over 20 his last full year ago being constantly double teamed
Joe Johnson - 18.0 - little above 18 last two years. Think he stays that way
Deron Williams - 15.0 he averaged 21 last year, he will go back to the facilitator role that he's best at
Gerald Wallace - 12 - he will play enough minutes at the 3/4 to get points from slashing or offensive rebounds
Marshon Brooks - 11 - scoring is what he does best. 5th option is a great role for him
Mirza Teletovic - 10- again, Europe's #1 scorer. He could end up being 4th or even 3rd on the team by the end of the season
Kris Humphries - 10 - he "only" scored 14ppg while basically being the #1 option. I wouldn't be surprised if he dropped to single digits - but great rebounding though

Was tough figuring out Mirza/Marshon roles as they are gifted scorers but ultimately minutes will determine their output.

Total: 97 ppg + scoring from other players. SEVEN players averaging double-digits is high, but it was hard choosing lower totals being kinda biased as a diehard fan and from hearing of their abilities haha

REMEMBER: Your team most likely WON'T average a ridiculous 110 PPG or something so be reasonable by adding up the totals for your team and including up to 10 points that could possibly come from other players.

The Denver Nuggets as a full TEAM led the NBA in scoring with 104.1 PPG last season so please be realistic.

I spy the following threads on the first page:

"what is Steve Francis doing RIGHT NOW"

"can someone tell me why Yao Ming retired?"

"what is T-mac doing now?"

"Raptors GM compares a player he overpaid for to Shane Battier"

"Johnny Flynn works out for Cavaliers"

it is a little poinless because there are a lot of fans that have no idea how their rester will look like next season, Houston, Lakers and Orlando for instance, but it is a interesting thread actually, but it would be better if it was October

Brown (If brought back) 8

I don't understand how all the average ppg's don't add up to the average points of a team...?

Yeah I mentioned that in the first paragraph. The thread is valid for teams that have a set roster though. Houston is definitely the biggest question mark so far of the offseason. The guy who said it was pointless could also make reasonable estimates with his team (looks like the Celtics) by considering how Terry/Jeff Green factor in the new scoring available with Ray's absence.


Phoenix Suns:

Beasley 16
Gortat 15
Dragic 13
Scola 13

I don't know if that question was in response to your own dilemna of only averaging 93 points or what I said in my first post. But OUTSIDE the 7 players I mentioned, Reggie Evans, CJ Watson, TyShawn Taylor, whoever our back C is can all contribute points as well - increasing the total upto 10 points

Starters:
PG: Stephen Curry: 16 Points Per Game
SG: Klay Thompson: 15 Points Per Game
SF: Harrison Barnes: 14 Points Per Game
PF: David Lee: 20 Points Per Game
C: Andrew Bogut: 11 Points Per Game

Bench:
Jarret Jack: 9 Points Per Game
Brandon Rush 8 Points Per Game
Richard Jefferson: 6 Points Per Game
Festus Ezeli: 4 Points Per Game

Total: 103

And we might get Carl Landry, and I think Draymond Green will contribute as well.

I just mean like the players phoenix suns had last year if you add up their avg ppg it is like over 105 but the avg ppg for the team was 94.1 or whatever, if you get me?

Very insightful response.

Kyrie Irving -- Continues his path to becoming a great PG 19 PPG -- 7APG

Dion Waiters -- Questionable drafting him so early. See him kicking his "slightly above average" career off averaging 14PPG( shooting% being sub-par though)

Tyler Zeller -- Has been said to be "NBA ready" which could mean he plateaus early on 13 PPG -- 8 RPG -- 1.1 BPG

Alonzo Gee -- For Gee there is plenty of room for scoring. Might just be a default 11-12 PPG. Shooting% also being an issue for this undersized SF

Anderson Varejao -- If he can stay healthy there is plenty of room for him to
take shots, but still lacks the ability that it takes to consistently score as a big man. 11PPG -- 10RPG

Tristan Thompson -- I think he will see more touches and have opportunities to prove to the league that he is not just a leaper(I'd like to hope so, but I don't see it) 9 PPG --8 RPG

Bench is a mystery. This team is a mystery outside Kyrie. That's why I just put Kyrie's name first. Sorry for the lack of funny.

Yeah I got you. First of all, they actually averaged 98.4 PPG last year, good for 8th in the league. Damn, Steve Nash does wonders - was surprised by that.

But the reason adding Players totals doesn't equal to TEAM totals is simple: Injuries. Say Gortat gets hurt (keeping his average at whatever it was). Robin Lopez steps up and bumps his average up. Gortat comes back with similar scoring. So in that time Robin's average went up, but the TEAM's might have actually lowered bc Gortat is a better scorer. Kind of a weird example but injuries might explain for that.

Beasley- 20ppg

Scola- 12ppg 7rpg

Dudley- 10ppg
Frye- 6ppg
Morris- 4ppg
Marshall- 3ppg

103ppg total. Run and Gun is back. No real star but definitely will be a fun team to watch. I can see us getting out to a hot start due to the fact that Dragic has chemistry with all of his former suns teammates and Scola. Hopefully we can add Courtney Lee and chemistry really won't be a problem. Marshall is working on establishing a connection with Markieff in the summer league. Obviously no championship with the current roster but could sneak into the playoffs.
