    Maybe Dwight Howard? He will make the HOF too somehow.
    Rookie Tyreke Evans was hella overrated, but that happens with rookies.



    Here’s a crazy one: Dirk Nowitzki... *gasp!
    Agree with the rest but Dirk? And Howard?

    Dirk is a top 5 pf of all time imo

    That's disingenuous af and you know it. Hill didn't do **** at his peak. A 8x All NBA, 3x DPOY winner is going to "somehow" get into the HOF.
    Honestly his decline was even exaggerated. Had him on my fantasy teams when he was in Charlotte and Atlanta and he was still a rebounding and defensive anchor. He could still help almost any team even today and has done a crazy job being in shape after being out for over a year.

    I know dirk is a crazy pick but imo he is pretty much just a shooter. He rebounds too which made him playable.
    Constantly hidden on defence. Contributed very little beyond rebounding and shooting.

    Howard was great but is viewed league wide as a team cancer in the same way boogie was.

    That was the worse performance by Siakam, a loss that he can definitely learn. That was a game that scouts of other teams can get pointers from on how to properly defend the Raptors star.

    So I guess, any team winning against them from here on out until the playoffs would have asterisk beside that win if one of these guys are load managing.

    Kleber did well bodying him up early, making him finish through contact. Beyond that, a lot of shots were open, but just felt short again. Not sure Dallas schemed anything particular there.

    They crowded him on drives. He missed some layups but he was being challenged. They did a good job. Siakam struggles against length and they have a lot of that.

    But yeah good learning experience and that's what this year is all about for him. He will learn and grow a lot as he works through different strategies and schemes.

    I also thought he was rushing at times and looked erratic but you can attribute that to the length again.

    The Mavs outplayed the Raptors last night. They spread out the Raptors and Doncic got the space he needed to draw in guys. They just couldn't find a way to stop the Mavs from getting open looks. I was surprised Boucher only got 12 minutes. He was better suited in this matchup than Marc.

    The Raptors strategically rotated around Marc staying inside defensively but they got burned in timely situations. Ibaka would have really helped in this game. Especially with his ability to get some easy baskets around the rim.

    I would have liked to see Nurse experiment a little more and maybe try Hernandez.

    Overall, finishing 3-2 on the this road trip is great.

    Dude, c'mon. If you wanted to make a lineup of Carmelo's from the current generation tell me you wouldn't have DeRozan as the starting 2.

    The All Carmelo Anthony team:

    PG - requires more thought
    SG - Demar DeRozan
    SF - Carmelo Anthony
    PF - LaMarcus Aldridge
    C - requires more thought

    Times have changed a lot. Kawhi gets "load management" while stars back then were called "soft" for not wanting to play through injuries. Dwight is only soft because he gets easily manipulated by the media and people like shaq/kobe.

    How is Dirk overrated? You need fans to be overrated lmfao. Same thing with D12. He has been underrated since all the drama with the Lakers.

    Pre-injury Drose, Westbrook, Griffin etc were all more overrated than Dirk ever was.

    Btw what do you guys think about Raptors not giving Val, Wright and Miles a ring? I think it's kind of scummy considering they (especially JV) actually contributed during the season. Kinda breaking tradition.
