    I do wonder how people would view Bam if he were on Toronto this year and had to become the top offensive player despite lacking the skills necessary (ala Siakam).

    The same exact things.

    Bam and Siakam are ďsuper-2ísĒ. As the #2 guy on the team they look like an absolute stud. A guy you want leading your team. The guy you can convince yourself that despite the flaws can improve and be that guy. But the reality is they canít. As the #1 they get exposed for their flaws. They can take the offensive brunt but thereís limits to how far theyíll take you.

    These are the easiest guys in the world to get excited over IMO. Because as the #2 if they have a bad game you can easily blame it on someone else. But as the #1 if they donít perform you donít have a chance.

    Iím curious, did you get a chance to watch Siakam in his rookie season? Kid was raw AF and has made HUGE improvements every season.

    Valade is right in saying he wasnít ready this year but I have all the faith that Siakam will put in the work and develop some post moves.

    How do you compare them to Klay?

    Haven't really watched much of him aside from looking at the stat lines and highlight videos so I couldn't tell ya. Siakam entered the league as a high energy defensive minded player with no 3 point shot, playmaking ability or dribble moves.

    About the same. Klay is part of that ďsuper 2Ē grouping.

    The biggest question for Klay in terms of whether he could be the #1 guy is, does he have good enough ball handling and passing?

    He absolutely does not. Most of his best scoring games have come without ever having to even dribble. He can't create for others. But damn as a #2 scorer I don't know if there's a better option.

    1 is in the finals and the other is at the crib. Joel also only averaged 1 assist and he had almost double the usage 😳 Bam really might be better.

    The one thing is Bam is surrounded by talented guards which is the most important thing for a big.

    Not knock against Bam, if I had to pick someone to replace Jokic it would be Bam based on age and health.

    No doubt though he will climb the board.

    The list with Towns at 13 is so hard on his defense when he is elite offensively blows my mind. Booker at 3 being arguably the worst defender in the league. Simmons at 9 with no jumper. Murray at 7 when the first time ever he showed to be consistent on both ends. Thought the list was harsh on Towns.
