    I'm doing with Dimmsdale. Kawhi's a superior player to LeBron at this point and the best-possible defender to put on him. The spacing around Kawhi is also slightly better. I'd start Carter and Lopez, who could get his shot off over anyone.

    patrick beverly is a great defensive matchup for Fox. Reddick at age 35 wouldn't be able to punish bojan around screens like he would earlier in his career and bojan is pretty quick. I would put Lauri defensively on Brook Lopez at the 3pt line to keep favors near the rim. As for Kawhi I would start with lebron, but Royce Oneal and Bojan would also get time and they just held him to a 9-26 effort to get his 30 points. kawhi would get his, but having a player such as taj gibson who doesn't set screens and can't shoot would really cramp the paint for Kawhi. Lebron would play a ton of PF covering Gibson as well.

    on offense it would be lebron controlling things with 3 good shooters and two bench guys who are good shooters and roll player in Favors. I also have Bojan who at 6-8 with a good postup game and drive game would be a major problem for Reddick. Kawhi covering Lebron for 36 minutes would be really exhausting for him, but outside of kawhi they don't have much to cover lebron.

    superior scorer maybe, but Lebron is so far a superior passer its not close. also how is spacing better?
    beverly 38% vs fox 34.5% , Reddick 41% vs bojan 40%, lauri 36% vs Lopez 35%, Monte morris 41.5% vs Collin sexton 40%, Oneal 38% vs Ferguson 35% and Bacon 35%(this was the last 4 years btw which I think is a large enough sample size and more relevant for someone like JJ reddick who is now 35 years old) so he has one advantage, but he has better spacing?

    Bojan and Beverley are good shooters, but Redick and Kawhi are the two best on the court. Markkanen's barely more accurate than Brook, who so tall he can get his shot off over anyone.
    Beverley's a great defender, but Fox would smoke him in the open court. I'm not passing judgement on Fox's shooting until I see him on a team where he isn't the main focus of the defense.
    Yeah, OK; LeBron's a better passer, although Kawhi's moving into that role this season. Kawhi's better in every other regard, and the single-best defender you could put on LeBron. He's proven he can beat the Warriors and LeBron with an inferior team.

    Yeah; they didn't have Durant. But it wasn't like Golden State was destitute with Curry, Green, Iguodala and Klay, who only missed Game 3 and still came back just fine. Kawhi beat a team in the finals with more star power than he had. He beat Giannis and the Bucks before that, and the loaded 76ers before that. He's already beaten LeBron and AD this season. So yeah; I think he can beat LeBron again.
