    Agreed, although I think his offense is already good enough where he's a positive. It's more about how much better he'll become overall.

    RJ will be next up if Payton doesn't work out and/or they'll turn to Frank. It should've been RJ in a backup role anyway with a G that can play both PG and SG but can shoot. This is where I agree...

    Eh...we'll see. One was restricted and guards are more valuable in general. Even a rim-running, defensive C, like Capela couldn't get paid and is already on the trade block.

    Yes and a lot of that is that Payton can't do **** else on offense. DSJ was averaging 16 and 7 with the Knicks for that first month, but that's being ignored as well.

    I compared them currently as well, but you're not addressing that other than saying Payton is a better facilitator. DSJ would literally have to regress to not be better than Payton next season.

    He played 21 games with the Knicks. That's it. About half of those games, he had an issue with his back. He shot exactly 69.5% from the line his rookie year and 69.5% again with Dallas last year. He...

    There seems to be two issues here:

    1) We didn't forget what a floor general looks like. Your definition of one just doesn't really exist as much anymore. It's not the 80's, 90's, or early 00's...

    His prime was 10 years ago.

    Simmons is a 6'10" PG.

    No comparison.

    What do summer videos have to do with anything? They aren't highlights of him passing the ball. Playmaking was one of his main strengths while on the Knicks. You seem to be one of the few that don't...

    RJ's last measurements, over a year ago, was 6'6.5". Iggy was 6'7" at the combine. You're talking about a 1/2" and not only that, they have the same wingspan which is more important. As far as...

    You do realize that by swapping Morris and DSJ for Knox and Payton, you've only made the shooting issues worse and not just by a little.

    Randle is one of the best passing bigs in the league and...

    I think the issue is that we don't agree with the gap between Payton and DSJ and most of us seem to think the added attention DSJ gets from defenses in comparison only adds to it.

    Depends on the player, but I don't think it applies to Randle considering how much he creates for himself. Randle isn't a player looking for others to set him up.

    I don't think you can compare a guard taking 2.5 3's per game, while hitting 31% of them, to a big man taking 2.7 per game and hitting 34%.

    This is a concern with Randle, but not nearly to the...

    Also, I'm not sure if the Payton/Randle dynamic means anything considering that Payton missed half the season and Jrue Holiday was the primary ball handler.
