Which guy do you think will take the next step and become a 20+ PPG scorer in the NBA?

Harden, Kyrie.

EDIT: Cousins.

Cousins is a good bet but I think Tyreke is poised to score more points for Sacramento this upcoming season now that his only role is to score.

Its still a big jump to becoming a PG who averages over 20 PPG, espescially knowing defenses will be trying to stop you all game.

His assist numbers should go up with the talent they put around him

I'm not sure, Tyreke has been through a ton of turmoil the last couple of seasons with injuries and the whole not having a position thing. Meanwhile Boogie has improved every year and the Kings have kind of angled towards him to be the franchise player, which probably means more shots coming his way. I think he'll (Tyreke) be just under it, at least as far as next year goes

Kyrie is the most likely. He's not too far off from such. Second most likely, I'd go Steph Curry if he can stay healthy, he wasnt far off his previous two years.

what about Roy Hibbert? just got paid mad money and better deliver. In the playoffs, prior to the heat series, he and west were dominant in the post.

I dont see Hibbert ever averaging 20 points per game, he's a great player but he isnt as offensively gifted as the likes of Dwight, Bynum, Lopez, or Jefferson who have averaged 20 ppg.

^^True
He has still got better every year, and maybe not next year avg, 20ppg. As far as never avg that much in his career, i disagree.

Most likely Irving, Harden still has Westbrook and Durant on his team. The Cavs are picking up alot of talent, but Irving is still going to take a bulk of the shots.

It brings up a good point. Why is 20ppg the magic number? Why not 18, or 22? Why is there a fascination with 20 points?

because it's a number that's ends in 0, if it would have ended in 5 it would be ok too. It's a fairly high number that ends in 0 that's why people use 20. You knew that though, you just wanted to ask a stupid question.

A PG who doesn't have to defer to anyone else on the team offensively SHOULD average more than 20ppg. He always has the ball and can call his own number anytime he wants to.

The point is that it's a completely arbitrary number. How often is someone an 18ppg scorer and NOT the focus of the team's offense? I would guess 17ppg is probably a better cutoff.

Has David Lee "made it" because he averages 20ppg but Andrew Bynum hasn't with 18.7ppg?

Using 20 is not about the zero, it's about psychology. It's the same reason everything at the store is priced ending in .49 or .99 cents. You percieve $1.99 to be a lot less than $2.00 because the first thing in the price you see is the 1 and the 2.

Not picking a fight, just wondering about why. Whenever people talk about needing to upgrade a big they say "a 20/10 type player", and wing players "make it" when they average 20ppg. If you don't round up Chris Paul's 19.8, there were only twelve 20ppg scorers in the NBA last year (and only two 20/10 players, Kevin Love and Blake Griffin).

Harden won't cause Durant and Westbrook already score a lot.

Duddy
08-04-2012, 10:21 AM
I'm going with the one that has no votes yet: Tyreke Evans. He'll do that on the 09-10 season, as a rookie, with 20.1ppg. Oh... wait :rolleyes:

kingkenny01
08-04-2012, 10:22 AM
Brandon Jennings is a good bet because he shoots alot, not alot of talent other monta ellis to pass too, and he averaged 19.1 points per game last year. Honestly i think about half these guy will be averaging more than 20 points next year.

Irving is the logical choice. Cousins is another imo. Beasley may, because he will get 25 shots a night in Phoenix. If he stays healthy, which he hasn't the last 2 years. I don't think he trains hard enough, but at least he is headed to the best medical staff in the NBA.

Gotcha.

He'll flop his way to couple of extra points.


Tyreke Evans 2009-2010 season averaged 20.1 PPG
So who's embarassing who?

I say the next ones are Irving and Wall.

I think he's referring to 21 and up.


Not with Dirk as #1 option.

Other that Dirk, who's taking shots from him?

JasonJohnHorn
08-04-2012, 11:43 PM
I think Batum might be able to pull it off. I'm tempted to say Harden, but there is only one ball on the floor at a time and Durant and Westbrook are each going to be taking a lot of looks. I'm thinking Kyrie Irving too. Evans and Curry can pull it off as well, though I thought Evans was on the trading block? If he is, I doubt if the coaching will be giving him enough shots to get 20+ a game.

08-05-2012, 02:10 PM
Rondo. Kidding, but I do think he'll score more. I'd say Jennings. And I don't know why, but I think Teletovic on the Nets is going to put up numbers, don't know about 20, but with the guys around hm and a quick shot...
