  1. Bonus: Since this is Westbrook's thread - he himself has 46.5% eFG% (career) and 46.8% eFG% (2018-19), and just about any NBA player is comparatively a better shooter than him He's sandwiched between Dennis Schroder (47.0% eFG%) and Andrew Wiggins (46.1%) in 2018-19.
  2. This list only makes sense if a "shooter" is "someone who shoots the ball in a basketball game". Dennis Schroder Career: 43.0% FG%, 32.5% 3P%, 47.3% eFG% OKC: 41.4% FG%, 34.1% 3P%, 47.0% eFG% Carmelo Anthony Career: 44.9% FG%, 34.7% 3P%, 48.2% eFG% OKC: 40.4% FG%, 35.7% 3P%, 47.6% eFG% Corey Brewer Career: 42.5% FG%, 28.4% 3P%, 46.5% eFG% OKC: 44.4% FG%, 34.3% 3P%, 52.4% eFG% (18 game sample size) Victor Oladipo Career: 44.3% FG%, 35.2% 3P%, 49.5% eFG% OKC: 44.2% FG%, 36.1% 3P%, 49.1% eFG% Dion Waiters Career: 41.2% FG%, 34.7% 3P%, 46.8% eFG% OKC: 39.6% FG%, 34.3% 3P%, 44.8% eFG% Randy Foye Career: 40.1% FG%, 36.6% 3P%, 48.2% eFG% OKC: 34.9% FG%, 30.9% 3P%, 43.3% eFG% (27 game sample size) To get an idea of how atrocious this is in terms of pure shooting - 109 out of 120 players that are displayed in basketball-reference.com for the 2018-2019 season had 49% or better effective FG%. Calling Dion Waiters a shooter is also as vomit-inducing as watching him play basketball 🤢 It took a while to compile these stats, but figured sharing real numbers would be a nice way to share the laughter with the rest of the fantasy community.
  3. I was just joking and asking a rhetorical question, but to answer my own question more seriously - Westbrook is showing signs of a rapidly declining asset that may become tougher to move especially in the back half of his contract. If I were the Thunder, I’d trade him ASAP while he’s valued and movable - after all, it’s not a guarantee that a team like the Knicks will be around to pay for a bad contract. If the Heat trade for him, better win immediately before he and Jimmy have a chance to get angry
  4. Jimmy + Russ pairing? Who's gonna chase who out in this scenario? 😂
  5. I'm going to offer a contrarian point of view in that if Kawhi cared about his health, he should stay in Toronto. If he goes to the Lakers, they'll have a very top-heavy team with Lebron/AD/Kawhi all having their own load management / injury concerns. Even one significant injury would likely force the others to play significant minutes in order to carry their team. Raptors had 17-5 record without Kawhi, and I think it's pretty safe to say they'd make playoffs without him. I think Lakers are pretty screwed if Kawhi doesn't join, so hopefully his mindset is that he'll want to join a team that isn't screwed without him 😄
  6. While I don't think this is necessarily going to be wrong, the level of entitlement is what is shocking about Lakers fans. It's really as if they've already signed a 3rd superstar and AD has signed an extension... As a Warriors fan who has been through some pretty dark times, it's precisely this attitude that makes me wish the Lakers will spend a few more years in the dumps. Realistically speaking, the Lakers will likely be a top-heavy team with an injury prone super star in AD, so there's definitely a fair amount of risk even if the 3rd star is quality. It'll be interesting to see how they'll fill out the other starters and the bench.
  7. http://www.espn.com/nba/team/stats/_/name/tor/seasontype/2 JV has played just 2-3 more mpg than CJ Miles, FVV, Delon Wright, Siakam, Poeltl, and OG Anunoby. 5 mpg less than Ibaka.
  8. Just found it amusing that Rubio is on the list for this supposed “sneaky efficient” list ?
  9. He actually hit his first 3 threes in the first 3 minutes, so he was on pace for 48 threes!
  10. He was actually #40 on BBM last year, at only 12ppg and only 29.7mpg. Still think that he'd only be a 4th/5th rounder this year with Granger?
  11. You still feel embarrassed. Embarrassed no more. Even if Granger comes back, I think George will be able to maintain his 1st rounder status (which he has been for the past 2 weeks). He's actually been a better version of Batum, which is really crazy. It was clear from the preseason that the Pacers wanted to groom him into the 1st/2nd offensive option, and it seems like George is finally responding to that challenge. Due to his strength in all the other cats, I think he'd still be a 1st rounder even if his scoring were to dip to 15-16ppg, as long as he does it with decent %s.
  12. You still feel embarrassed. Don't be embarrassed at all... Batum and PG will be fairly close come seasons end I see them both in the 15-25 range. Well, I'm sure each time George puts up a big line like this the feeling will go away more and more, hahah. I'm still a bit hopeful that PG can be more valuable than Batum around the season's end for H2H playoffs. I think Batum can become slightly inconsistent due to all the offensive weapons that the Blazers have. The problem is that PG's consistency is non-existent right now, but it's always good to confirm (from yesterday's line) that his ceiling is still awesomely high. Lets hope that he will build on this.
  13. Well, I feel slightly less embarrassed about trading Batum for George before the season began now. Glad to see that he is still capable of producing these monster lines.
  14. Well, now he likely has every opportunity to ascend to stardom. I'd agree with the others' assessment though, that he may take a big hit in efficiency. Remember the 30/9/5 7 3s, 5 stl, 1 blk line from last year? I like George's chance of duplicating something like that if Granger is out.
