  2. He'll still have some duds but if he keeps getting minutes even close to this level, his days on being on the waiver should be over.

    High of 56% at the very most. Low of 52%. So 54% is most likely in my book. EDIT: Of course, if he stops shooting threes, it could go higher. I'm assuming he still takes 1.5- 2 a game. And of course assuming he continues to take around 8 shots a game.

    If it "antagonizes" you to hear a player you have on your team discussed realistically, that's on you. Someone said "His fg% isn't dropping under 60%". I pointed out that that's incredibly unrealistic and would in fact be a historical season for someone that shoots as much as he does from where he does. I don't know what to tell you. Is this the "only good news, Siakam for MVP" thread? Or is it for discussing the player's fantasy season?

    This makes no sense. You're being a fan. I don't care about fans. No one here does.
  6. Pascal Siakam 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    ...great? I don't get why you're defending him. He's not on trial. Neither are you. This isn't a cheerleader forum, it's for realistic assessing players. The idea that he's going to continue to shoot historically well is silly. I'm not sure why you're somehow taking that observation personally. Can you tell me?

    Imagine only having one league and not owning basically every top 200 player, so you get all emotional and attached to the 13 guys you currently have. Just think about it.

    Sure, 56. I don't give a s---, I'm just responding to the guy that was like "it's not gonna go under 60%", which, yes, would be historic based on the number of shots he takes. Is this gonna be Lonzo part 2?
  9. Pascal Siakam 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I mean I already talked about that in this post. Note how I say "non big man". But let's be more specific, more concrete, to account for the fact that Siakam takes 1.7 threes per game. I'll just let the link do the talking. The list of players who've averaged over 60% shooting, on at least 8 attempts a game, with 1.5 of them being 3s: https://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/psl_finder.cgi?request=1&match=single&type=totals&per_minute_base=36&per_poss_base=100&season_start=1&season_end=-1&lg_id=NBA&age_min=0&age_max=99&is_playoffs=N&height_min=0&height_max=99&birth_country_is=Y&as_comp=gt&as_val=0&pos_is_g=Y&pos_is_gf=Y&pos_is_f=Y&pos_is_fg=Y&pos_is_fc=Y&pos_is_c=Y&pos_is_cf=Y&c1stat=fg_pct&c1comp=gt&c1val=.600&c2stat=fga_per_g&c2comp=gt&c2val=8&c3stat=fg3a_per_g&c3comp=gt&c3val=1.5&order_by=ws Now me? I'd guess the first person to do something like that would be, I dunno, Kevin Durant. LeBron James. Someone like that. But we have people in this thread really giving their answer as "Pascal Siakam". I get everyone is excited about the guy, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try to be realistic, right?

    Okay, well let's see how this historically great season prediction goes. God forbid someone has a hot streak to start the season. No, it can't be that, it's gotta be one of the greatest FG% seasons from a perimeter player of all time...who also averages taking 2 threes a game.
  11. Well...yeah. Maybe I should've been clearer, but when I said someone added a bench spot, there was drama, and now we have four bench spots, I was strongly implying that once you do it, you can't go back.

    Oh and he had Rondo. It's at .441 to .432 so this one is pretty much in the bag. No other cat was even close, so let this guy's f--- up be a lesson for you all. He just flipped fg% from a W to a L just by not checking his team tonight. C S B
  13. In one of my leagues last week, someone added a bench spot. There was huge drama about it and now the league has an extra bench spots. I have no idea how he did it, he said it was an "accident" that somehow allowed him to get Dwight off the IR. But no s---, we now have four bench spots instead of the three we started with.

    In one of my daily leagues, I was losing 4-5 with no one left to play today. I was only losing fg% by like .003, and the dude I'm playing left in Kyrie, Trae, Spellman, and Hart. They could shoot well and I still lose 4-5, but right now I'm up .005 and winning 5-4. It's a $250 league, dear opponent, you should really check up on Sunday evenings to see if you should bench someone. But thanks for giving me a good chance to win!
