From that same draft what should be Russell's rivals,

 

Porzingis

Y0: 14.3ppg 7.3rpg 1.3apg 0.7spg 1.9bpg 1.7 topg on 42.1 FG% 33.3 3p% 24.6 USG%

Towns

Booker

Turner

Y0: 10.3ppg 5.5rpg 0.7apg 0.4spg 1.4bpg 1.1topg on 49.8 FG% 21.4 3p% 20.9 USG%

Russell

Y0: 13.2ppg 3.4rpg 3.3apg 1.2spg 0.2bpg 2.5topg on 41.0 FG% 35.1 3p% 24.1 USG%

Y1: 15.1ppg 3.9rpg 4.6apg 1.3spg 0.3bpg 2.7topg on 39.9 FG% 34.2 3p% 27.4 USG%

 

 

Russell's production is looking inferior compared to his rivals. And it is mainly due to his lack of effort. Even Jokic surpassed Russell. When it comes to words, the guy claims there is no one better than him, hence his jersey number, he provides one of the cockiest interviews and on-court shenanigans, yet doesn't walk the walk. On a team where Randle improves tremendously from last season, what was Russell's excuse? His hair? How is it possible that the guy who is known to be a shooter is such a bad free throw shooter?

The only player in that list you should be comparing Russell to is Booker, and a player you decided to omit from the list in Emmanuel Mudiay...  There's no point in comparing the production of guards to forwards/centers, it's apples and oranges.  In addition to that, all players develop at a different pace and all of these guys are in different scenarios/environments.

 

Porzingis, Towns, Turner, and even Booker are all playing alongside proven players, some even Superstars/All-Stars in Carmelo Anthony, Paul George, and Eric Bledsoe.  Russell is playing in a young core with not a single previous All-Star player or anyone of that caliber.

 

Another very interesting flaw in your post is that you decided to leave out their individual minutes per-game (MPG).  Russell averages the least out of all the them, at just 27.

 

Russell - 27.3 MPG

Booker - 33.8 MPG

Turner - 29.7 MPG

Porzingis - 34.1 MPG

 

If you examine each player's stats PER 36, you'd see that D'Angelo isn't far off from anyone.  He's actually very well rounded.

Sorry... you're gonna have to come up with a better argument my friend.

Lol Per36.

 

Per36 is for players who can play 36 minutes of efficient basketball. That doesn't apply to Russell with that field goal percentage and turnover rate. Hence, he doesn't play and gets his minutes eaten by Lou.

Again, to compare him to the notable guards of his draft class... In terms of  offensive efficiency, he's nearly identical to his rival (Booker).  Give or take 2% in FG% between him and Booker is nothing.  I'm not sure where you are trying to go with your arguments because statistically speaking, there's no signficant gap or difference between him and Booker.  I see why you decided to leave Mudiay out of the equation though.

 

D'Angelo Russell

FG%: 39.9%          3FG%: 34.2%         TO: 2.7

 

Devin Booker

FG%: 42.2%          3FG%: 36.0%          TO: 2.8

 

Emmanuel Mudiay

FG%: 37%             3FG%: 30.5%          TO: 2.6

Mudiay is better than Russell.

Just watched Porzingis and Towns. Yeah, they're both a lot better than Russell. Quite frankly, Towns is in another universe. He's close to becoming a superstar. Porzingis will be even better once he gets a bigger role in the Knicks' offense.

Pretty pathetic when the highlight of the season...

 

is a player from an opposing team scoring his 30,000th point against our guys.

Considering most here are too young to have seen any of the other guys ahead of dirk on the list play except kobe.

 

Unless someone can think of a better highlight?


Edited by kball, March 16, 2017 - 04:19 AM.

Praying for  1. Youngsters Ballin (Didn't really happen on a consistent basis at all) 2. Miracle Trade (Also didn't happen. And we traded our best player for chump change) 3. Kick Ass Rooks (Zubac exceeded, Ingram tried but disappointed overall)

READY FOR SEASON TO BE OVER!!!

Yea, when the game clock displayed 0:00 At the end of the 4th quarter.

Went from 10-10,to only winning 9 games, to some folks wanting to tank, to people saying this is down right ugly and pathetic. It should never have gotten this bad
