Is Nance a better starting pf than Love? I'm sure the defense is way better with that front line.
Spot on. Porter is the worst player in the league Cut ties asap
Was not sarcastic. He is still improving. The assists are starting to come. He one by one is improving all aspects of his gameIm not sure if you’re being sarcastic. I don’t like the fact his court vision of seeing and actually passing to open guys is like Stevie Wonder. It doesn’t exist.
So you didn’t read one word I said? Cool.No offense, but all the numbers guys have been wrong about him from day 1. He was one of the youngest in the draft. His progress from oct to now means his stats up till now are heavily skewed by a slow start. He has gotten better every month.
Nathan S said there were a hundred guys as good as him and Imwithdan said he went right where he was supposed to at the time of the draft. Do you believe that?
Just saying the numbers thing can mean something, but it isn't everything. It's obvious there is something there with this kid when you watch him. I don't know how high his ceiling goes, but he literally got better while he was sitting on the bench and watching and has been much more consistent since coming back.
Looking at his yearling numbers isn't indicative of much. You have to compare month to month
I'm still wondering what he did at USC to get suspended. Aside from "accidentally" bumping a ref early this season he hasn't caused any trouble on or off the court that I know of. I think his off the court troubles were massively overblown unless it was something big that the media just didn't let out. The normal immaturity of a 18 year old is all I can think and he hasn't shown much of that here. I think injuries could be more of a problem because he seems to get nicked up a fair amount.If he can stay out of trouble and injuries he will be something special he has future all star potential
I read it. You were talking advanced numbers without citing them, and without mentioning what games you are measuring. Where does he rank as a rookie? His numbers since he has been backs are as bad as at the beginning of the season? I don't think so.So you didn’t read one word I said? Cool.
He’s very talented. He’s also been a negative impact player all season. Most games he shoots slightly above one point per shot and is horrific on defense.
When he looks good, though, he looks like a superstar. But it’s going to take more than “work” and “keeping his head on straight” - what I was initially responding to - to make him a star. He needs to raise his floor and be able to perform at an elite level more than once every five-to-ten games.
No, you didn't, but that's fine.I read it. You were talking advanced numbers without citing them, and without mentioning what games you are measuring. Where does he rank as a rookie? His numbers since he has been backs are as bad as at the beginning of the season? I don't think so.
How valuable are all year stats for rookies when it's obvious they figure things out later in the season ?
I saw Hunter and Reddish last night. I take Porter over them 10/10 times. Are their numbers better?
