    I didn't believe in him in college. Still don't know if he's just another Devin Booker, but at least he can score.

    I love Dončić with all my heart and wouldn’t change a thing, but it’s very possible that the Mavs lost this trade by a fairly large margin. Especially if Reddish pans out into even a serviceable role player.

    He’s had two hot shooting nights, that’s really it. I still think doncic is easily the better and more complete player.

    I wouldn't say that's the case. I watched Luka for the first time the other night vs. the Pelicans, and he definitely looks better suited for the Western Conference than Trae would be.

    if he does he will average 40 15 and 15 and that wouldn't be fair.

    Trae Young reminds me a lot of Michael Adams or a Dana Barros type of player. Got the green light to chuck, low efficiency, doesn't do anything else, gives up as many points as he gets, doesn't help his team win.

    He is just lucky he's in today's NBA.

    His efficiency is not low at all lol. His TS% is 58.2% this year and he's doing all this at 21

    Pretty much this

    BJ Armstrong would be an MVP candidate in today’s NBA

    Mark Price would be unanimous MVP

    Pretty much the same as Dana barros TS% rewards players who shoot a lot to threes and doesn’t take into account the high degree of variance in the shots. M

    It also reward players with high FTa which is highly inflated in today’s nba for perimeter players.

    Getting to the free throw line is good actually. Almost all of the top scorers in history from Jordan to Lebron to David Robinson have gotten to the line a ton in their primes. You could argue with the gimmicky bull of today's game but thats a separate topic

    interesting fact. except for the fact that its a lie, because FTAs have been steadily declining over the past 30 years

    this year teams are averaging 23 FTAs/game

    2009 teams averaged 24.5

    1999 teams averaged 25.3

    1989 teams averaged 28.5

    people like James Harden are simply an anomaly, quit acting like every perimeter player in the league is just getting abnormal amounts of FTs or something. and just like Harden, certain players have always gotten some sort of favoritism from the refs, Harden just has found a way to exploit rules better, much like Rodman and Laimbeer did on defense in the 80s, with all the flopping they made into an art form, and Isiah Thomas getting his fair share of cheap foul calls by jumping into defenders and flailing his arms everywhere.

    its really funny how people who love 80s and 90s basketball want to call modern players soft because they whine to officials, flop and exploit officiating, and have big men shooting threes, when it was 80s and 90s players on the most "hard-nosed, physical, manly team ever" who made many of these things a trend to begin with

    Didn’t say it isn’t. Just that’s its so easy for perimeter players to get them in today’s nba.

    Because teams are all perimeter based now. Perimeter players get way more fta but inside players don’t.
