Evan turner was getting slander for putting up similar numbers as a rookie. MKG, Derrick Williams, Otto Porter etc. Show and prove.

Bro so you're actually saying he's not doing any worse than other recent ##2 picks laugh.gif
post #35373 of 93193

14, 4 and 4 in December but he deserves no credit because it's in garbage time. Not great but definitely not terribly horrible either

Russ is not horrible and won't be Jeremy Lin levels of garbage or anything

But I don't see him being an all star at all. Especially playing the pg position

At most he will be a Denver prime ty Lawson level player

Next year will be telling for Russell. It'll show how hard and hungry he was in the off season and he'll be in control of the offense

 

He hasn't shown he'll be an All-Star yet but it's premature to make any declarations tbh

 

When he gets the keys we'll see what happens. He and Mudiay will be fine. So early

That's ALL I've been saying. When I hear things like "Future of the Lakers" or comparisons to Steph, Manu and Harden....I'm like he's not that. I've said plenty of times that "he'll he fine".....Always said he wasn't as bad as he was playing earlier....and not as good as he's looked in garbage time. I just don't think he will be an all star caliber player or a building block.

Really simple.

Man all I know is this, Dray is responsible for As many or more of GSW's win than Steph:

Teams play GSW heads up, Steph chews them up first and the team follows.

Teams play GSW by shutting down Steph first, and point Dray takes over by scoring at will and facilitating at will making every other player on the floor heaps better.

Basically, Drays triple doubles are a direct result of teams focusing on Steph that game which means, Dray could get a triple double EVERY game, if he wanted.

Dray > Blake, and it's not even close for me any more

And it's no secret I hate the spit in Drays mouth and GSW equally, I'm just telling y'all the truth

It doesn't matter because garbage time

 

Discussion leads me back to another OSU PG.. Chester's favorite PG Mike Conley. Though he's never been an All-Star, I feel like he is generally respected 

 

If Russell turns out to be a Conley caliber PG I think that would be pretty good and acceptable

Yeah I mean it's not like he was one of the most known prospects in the draft or anything.

Conley levels are what I would be happy with. I just don't see him being anything more.

A lot of this is just the high expectations from lakers fans

It took Conley 6 or 7 seasons to make that jump

 

There is just no patience these days. I remember when Warrior fans on NT was saying trade Curry so nothing surprises me anymore

6 or 7?

He started putting it together by his third.

I just meant production

 

If Russell put up 12, 5 and 2 in his third year you would have all these dudes going at Russell

Oh it's so evident too. This was the final determining factor in my Dray vs Blake assessment because Blake be the most shook

Which isn't really his fault. You put any rookie on the Lakers and they wouldn't make an impact on the number of W's

like i said, somebody's got to put up the numbers. byron might as well roll with the young guys and see what they can do and let them go through the growing pains.
you got to hit a homerun with that 2nd pick. he has to be special

This is basically what Byron is doing though, I mean the whole team is youngsters really. Kobe's going to start and get his high% usage which works well because Lakers(at the end of the day) really do want/need to finish in the bottom 3 to have that pick right.

I mean he put DLo on the bench so he could specifically come off when Kobe sits and still be able to control the whole game. Byron is really the best worst Coach because he's coaching with an agenda, which is to finish bad enough to have that pick.

My issues with dlo

1. He is not athletic

2. Reports that he's not a hard worker

3. Complains about the coach to the media

4. I truly believe that people that dress and act like he does are mentally soft

5. Being impressed by other basketball players not needing to stretch

6. very passive play

Mix of young guys playing well and coming back.

And Kobe willing to sit back.
