Noel getting overlooked. Tied with Napier for ROY?!?! Not on the list for best career?!? And hell, he's not even on the most overlooked list which he should be because of those two questions...

Interesting to see Dougie's stock sky rise so drastically because of Summer League. Loving the LaVine love too...but again, perhaps people are just getting a little carried away with dunks and summer league performances.

Wiggins at 5.4% for best career is stupid, too.

Wiggins being so low is pretty shocking. Wasn't he the most hyped prospect since LeBron? Noel is too low anyways. He would have been a top 5 pick this draft.

Injuries could easily be why people didn't pick him (Noel) to have the best career.

as a member of the Cavs Wiggins shouldnt even be top 5 for ROY. Not even to be a homer but Noel should be 2 behind Parker given he will have the minutes and opportunity to put up good all around numbers while McBuckets is going to be just a 3pt shooter on a contender, those types dont usually win ROY.

you said injuries as in plural but he suffered one injury well over a year ago and has been 100% for about 6 months with no setbacks of any kind even after playing in both summer leagues.

Probably but Blake Griffin was injured and was still rated very highly. Of course, Blake was the better player clearly and the competition back of draft players compared to this year is just incomparable.

Alot of execs have been impressed with McDermott and predict he will be ROY and no he isn't just a 3pt shooter go watch some videos of him and his play in SL.

McBuckets is capable of a lot more than just shooting but when the season hits thats gonna be his role

Parker really struggled in summer-league I was kind of disappointed in him after seeing how good he was in college. Wiggins being low make sense because he won't have the opportunity on the Cavs with James in his way. I think it will be Noel, Smart or Wiggins if he gets traded to the T-wolves.

Surprised that Embiid isn't up there for best career. Guess the majority of the voters are weary of his injury.

only thing Parker seemed to struggle with was turnovers but what rookie doesnt turn it over a lot? MCW avg like 8 a game in summer league last year

It seems in general these guys were very prisoner-of-the-moment when voting.

Just want to say that Wiggins doesn't fair "well" because he's in cleveland, where he falls in the depth chart.

The 2nd he's in Minny, I'd say he'd be right up there with Parker in minutes and opportunities.

Are you going out of your way to be a pain in the *** here or are you being serious? If he has another injury in his career, then it will be more than 1, which is plural. Everyone who has ever been injured for a significant period of time and played again has gone through a period with no setbacks...it means nothing.

And consider that Noel has a much slighter frame than blake does as well, which, as a big man, leads me to believe he may be more susceptible to injury.

I don't know his shot selection in SL was very poor from what I saw and he was getting blocked a lot. I just worry that he may not be able to get his shot off in the NBA like he did in college.

u said injurieS are why he wasnt given more votes for ROY. that suggests multiple injuries occured prior to this season starting and thats not the case. maybe next time word your post better.

That's actually not what I said. You can go back and read my original post and then :facepalm: yourself.

Edit: I'm assuming your reading comprehension won't improve before then so in order to save myself from another one of your ill-informed posts, I said that injuries (as in the possibility that he has more of them throughout his career) could be a reason people didn't vote for him to have the best career, nothing to do with ROY.

Hopefully that's the case his last game was little better but it was also the worst team they faced If I remember right.

I mean, they are the average age of PSD posters and they do the same thing:laugh2:


I mean, a lot of these are absurd though outside of Smart being the best defender obviously ;)

lol whatever u say man. the injury risk in pro sports is there for every single player in the league.

That is obvious. The injury risk is there for every player in the pick-up game around the corner. It still has nothing to do with what I said.

When people are given a set of players and asked who will have the best career, the guy who missed his entire rookie season with a serious knee injury isn't going to get votes because people see him as injury prone and therefore not likely to have a long run at the top, if he even gets there.

but youre not realizing he was held out for pre-cautionary/tanking reasons. he was cleared to play in like Feb and was in practice playing 5v5 and all.

None of that matters to me. You aren't talking to one of the people who voted. I never even said that it's what I thought. I was commenting on the reasons that other people, the people who voted in this poll ( and that this thread is about) may have chosen someone else when ManRam indicated he was surprised he didn't make that list.

You keep trying to convince me he's healthy or something, but I've never stated a personal opinion about Nerlens Noel's actual injury in this thread. I've only said that the people who voted may have taken his injury into consideration when choosing someone else.

Comprende?
