KD needs to play 4 full time, somebody tell scott brooks, it took spolstra a year to figure this out, Brooks is running out of time.
Jeremy Lamb in college made, 51% of his 18 footers and in jumpshots, 44% from 18-3 point land, 34 from 3 point land and out.
He can shoot, poor shot selection is impacting his percentage.
BHZ, KD was 4 for 8 (50%) from 3 last night. E'rbody else was 1-9(11%). You know hte issue, 2 mil from the luxury tax threshhold plus over the 15 roster limit. Only guys out there who might still take the minimum are Boobie Gibson, Rodrigue Beaubois, Rip Hamilton, Leandrinho Barbosa, Royal Ivey, and Daequan Cook. In house, there's Gomes and Jarrett who they've already committed to Tulsa (D League) all season and I don't even think is physically with the team anymore.
Shoeking, I was upset they took Roberson because he was projected undrafted and we took him with a 1st rd pick (rumor had it the Spurs wanted him and it leaked so the Thunder took him so the Spurs wouldn't or something like that, because we like bitin' their style), but his rebounding and defense is already NBA level. I still think we might regret not taking Tony Mitchell there though, but Roberson has already leapfrogged PJ3 in just a few weeks of camp into the 2nd unit.
And KD can guard 4s just fine. Very few teams even have 2 post up players to begin with, so you just put Ibaka (or whoever the frontcourt player lined up at the 5 is) on LMA, Kevin Love, etc. if you feel like they are going to kill you with post ups, which again very few teams do.
Even against Memphis, he guarded Gasol better than anyone else did. I'm not by any means saying I would go to that full time but as a wrinkle, and typically to force teams to match up to you, small ball is the ticket. It's way better than running Perkins and Ibaka out there
