It is very significant when you continue to put players out there in favor of players who are better than them, by both eye test and every conceivable metric. Brooks has his flaws, but I'd take him 100x over Billy D at this point. He also doesn't have the same level of respect IMO. We also need Perkins back. He was the only one who would hold guys accountable and he was an amazing quarterback on the defensive end, Ibaka and even KD, on that end just seem completely lost and disinterested without him. Might as well grab Derek Fisher too and put him on the bench somewhere. A Blatt/Lue situation would probably develop quickly, but whatever.
You're not going to be a serious contender giving Dion Waiters and Enes Kantner 30mpg. Blame the coach and/or the GM, but that's just facts. Both their x teams were more than happy to be rid of them for a reason. And Kantner on defense, literally, by BPM or even more simple stats like PPG when paired with other front court players, is literally a top 3 worst defensive player of all time. Literally. Even putting him next to Ibaka or Gobert doesn't change that
