Mainly the plethora of great PGs

top 10 pg compared to top 3-5 center ...

no disrespect to Lowry

Also, that injury is tough for boog but his game most of the time is in slow motion and its still effective so ehhhh who knows could be fine

Also a usage machine who turns the ball over a ton and hasn't demonstrably proven he improves a team.

He's not going to be able to do shit in the paint like he was. This isn't an injury to come back from.

Boogie is the one player who disappears more come playoff time than Lowry.

*buh dum tss*


Also, I'm claiming my spot on the Raptors bandwagon now. I've endured enough shitty Raps TV coverage in Canada over the years. I really hope they develop Siakam as a 5 this year so they can close games with a Lowry-FVV/Green-Kawhi-OG-Siakam lineup come playoff time.

Still can't believe they got to keep Siakam and OG.

Me neither. That team has the potential to be incredible defensively.

Do you literally do anything besides be a giant douchebag every minute? Goddamn man, add to the discussion for once or shut your fucking mouth.

And Poeltl is good, but he's a bit slow and that hurts given his position/limitations.

Probably not, hes a good advanced stats guy.

Poeltl is a solid prospect that could still improve but most teams can scheme a guy like that off the floor nowadays if they want to (or just by accident.)

As the resident Bill Simmons hater, I just thought I'd let you guys know the sports guy said that DeRozan is a top 10-13 player in the league. Sweet baby Jesus that's a bad take.

I love that he always has such needlessly precise ranges.

Hes somewhere between the 3rd and 11th most annoying figure in sports media.

Simmons best skill is finding talent in others and bringing them out.

Simmons is the Phil Jackson of basketball media. Legend in his prime, had a lot of success on the back of others talent,, stuck around a little too long and left everyone with a bad taste on his way out.

You could then argue any of the injured guys like Hayward, Boogie. Could maybe have Wall. This is off the top of my head, I'm sure I'm forgetting people. Lowry is fine, probably top 30-35 or so, but top 20 is a stretch
James
-
Durant
Curry
-
Davis
Leonard
Harden
-
Paul
Westbrook
Butler
Green
Antetokounmpo
George
Gobert
Thompson
-
Wall
Anthony-Towns
Irving
Embiid
Lowry

seems like a good enough 20

Bump Giannis up a tier, KAT up one, PG13 down one, Embiid up one, and I don’t think Lowry belongs in the same tier as those guys. He’s in the Conley tier right below.
