Only thing Clarkson does well is score efficiently, he is weak in just about every other aspect of the game. So if you are saying he is better than any other player, than your argument is that his scoring outweighs everything that the player in comparison brings to the table.
I dont think he is better on either side of the ball than Manu. You can make the argument that he is slightly better offensively but Manu has the higher PER. On top of that Manu averages nearly identical rebounds/assists while playing 12 less mpg. Plus Manu is better defensively imo. Manu is older and cant handle as many minutes but imo he is still better while on the floor than Clarkson.
Hood and Lavine were both on my arguable list that I posted earlier and I believe that they can easily go either way. Lavine imo is still a better passer and defender. As far as scoring ability they are pretty close.Ill say this though, if he isnt better yet he will be really soon.
Middleton may not be as versatile offensively as Clarkson but thats about it. Middleton is a great 3pt shooter and plays within his role. Defensively, he is so superior to Clarkson that I fail to see why we are even comparing the two. Middleton is easily better.
Do you think that Clarkson is that much better than Middleton offensively that it makes up for the difference in defensive ability?
Korver is still the better shooter imo and both suck defensively...Clarkson can just score in more ways than Korver. Korver has a more limited role though. Its close
