Good, strong athletes with a good perimeter game, not enough handles to consistently get to the rim, create separation or create for others. Stil pretty good but not great scorers. Decent defenders. Not contributing much if their shot isn't falling.

There are some differences between them but the comparison isn't bad. What is so far off about it?

thank you. my main concerns with harrison barnes are his lack of iso ability, lack of an elite first step to consistently get to the basket and getting to the free throw line. i think the areas where he will be getting buckets will be very similar to JR such as being a spot-up shooter, cutting to the basket, and transition. I also think he will be an above average defender similar to JR even though he's a rookie.

Kings getting ready to turn in another 50+ loss season laugh.gifmean.gif



I know this team has potential if they could get it together (Mainly just Tyreke Evans), but I'm still not very optimistic. Oh well I'm still going to cherish this TURRIBLE season because we dont have to many more here. tired.gif

There's gonna be a lot of rookies with good debuts, but I still have Davis taking ROY. nerd.gif

& with Gerald Green, he improved a lot since his struggles in the league... He has a better overall game now. His shot is a lot better, especially his 3 ball. He can still get to the rim & his IQ is a lot better... He makes smarter plays out there.

He's not gonna be a go to guy on the team or anything, but I think he'll help Indy this year. nerd.gif

His 13 ppg and 4 rebounds per game last year would disagree. If he can provide decent minutes spelling Danny Granger and Paul George, I'll be happy. In last years playoffs, Granger almost never came off the floor

the only thing stopping Lillard from winning ROY is an injury. of all the rookies, he has the most talent around him.

Barnes won't win because he's the 4th option on his team. Lillard only has to make sure LMA gets his touches. that high pick and roll of LMA/Lilliard is going to be hard to deal with.

Doesn't matter though AD, of all the rookies, has the most talent in him, therefore ROY is his to lose.
Lillard is definitely going to get buckets though, he's raw.
Funny you said injury, him being in Portland pretty much guarantees that.

Also yall acting like in the right situation Gerald Green can't give a team 15 and 4 consistently as long as he's a 3rd option/coming off the bench which will be his role on a pretty good INDY squad.
He's one of those guys who could have been a phenom if he had a Kobe type work ethic, his athleticism is sickening.

I have to disagree with half of your post, and agree with the other half

I think AD, while incredibly talented is going to have a hard time against NBA sized PFs. Just in the 1st month of the season he has to face Glen Davis, Tyrus Thomas/Bismark Biyombo, Josh Smith, Dirk, Lebron and Tim Duncan.

In November he has to face Paul Milsap, Boozer, Ibaka, Amare, David West, Faried and Blake.

I think he will be fine for his career, and will develop into a great player, but I think he's going to be baptized by fire in his rookie season.
____________

As far as Gerald Green goes, he will have good veteran leadership around him, and the combination of Paul George/Granger with Green (oh ****, all G names...thats dope, can we call them the G men? No? Ok) will be pretty nice

First Unit 

 

Chalmers

Wade 

Lebron

Battier

Bosh

 

Bench

 

Cole 

Ray Allen (James Jones)

Mike Miller 

Rashard Lewis

Joel Anthony (Vet Big Man)

 

Possible Closing Lineups

 

Any combination of....

 

Wade, Chalmers, Lebron, Allen, Miller, Lewis, Bosh, Battier

 

The versatility in this squad is unbelievable.  They will have trouble guarding the Lakers 2 bigs, but you can say the same thing the other way around.  How is Dwight Howard going to guard Chris Bosh if you pull him out to the corner 3 pointer? How will Pau Gasol guard Battier all around the perimeter? It only leaves gaping holes for two of the best slashers in the world.  Then you bring Howard/Gasol inside to take away those lanes and you have an arsenal of 3 point shooters with wide open shots.  Steve Nash does not have the quickness to shift defensively to contest those shots. Kobe might but you're going to wear him out defensively by doing that.  I don't think the Lakers are deep enough to keep up with the Heat, but if their squad can keep the score close until the end of the game, their starting 5 will create some serious damage to whoever they are playing.  

 

Sorry for turning this into a Lakers vs. Heat discussion grin.gif

its going to be even harder for him. I definitely expect him to be a perennial all star, but idk how much I expect out of him as a rookie. Also he will be a 3rd of 4th scoring option on that team after EG, Rivers sick.gif , and Anderson....2 of which are already established scorers in the NBA, and Rivers....well thats pretty much the only thing he can do

/\ What on earth makes you think Austin Rivers will be an option before AD?

I said 3rd or 4th.

But the only reason I considered Rivers is because thats literally the only thing he brings to the team. It could easily be EG, Ryan Anderson, AD then Rivers...but that doesnt change the fact that AD is going to draw alot of tough matchups, especially looking at their schedule for the 1st couple months of the season...If you think AD is moving Glen Davis/Al Jefferson/Joakim Noah off the block, then idk what to tell you

count me in as not being sold on anthony davis overall talent. he's probably not going to be counted on for buckets, but with austin rivers potentially playing PG, who is he going to catch lobs from? he is strong enough to defend in a league full of quality PFs?

lillard has an NBA body along with NBA range. he could very easily average 17 and 6 on a team that will fight for the 8th seed.
