At this point, Payton hasn't even gotten to training camp.

Yes, it's fine to get in the lane sometimes, but it's the only thing Payton can do.

I don't "love" him. I don't think he's a top-20 NBA point guard right now.

Despite his struggles as a scorer, Burke ran an NBA offense pretty well last year.

He's bad at getting open, bad at free throws, and I'm not convinced that the limited evidence that he now might shoot threes well outweighs the voluminous evidence that he's terrible at them.

Zeller's coming on. he's probably at least an average starter this year.

If you force a player to demonstrate decision-making, he's going to learn some decision-making.

If the team wants to develop players, they need to bring those players along gradually. Overplaying Payton early even if he's bad is likely to harm him.

It's a good worst-case comparison, I think.

Depends on if Fournier earns the job over Oladipo to begin with.

It doesn't make them "more factual" in the hand-waving "anything can happen, man, you don't KNOW" sense

Yeah, they're totally unrelated. because Trey Burke has the skills that effective point guards in the NBA have.

And for what it's worth, I think Wiggins will probably be better than Barnes.

Yeah, the reason is that NBA franchises are hidebound and stupid. When you're twenty years behind the times of _baseball_, what does that tell you?

Are you calling Wade "arguably a top-10 player of all time"?

Yeah. Except for shooting, dribbling and passing, he's not bad.

He simply didn’t have the "quick first step," or "explosiveness," or other meaningless scout-speak.

"You can’t teach athleticism" is what people say. What's true is "athleticism is a means to an end."

To trade the new Harrison Barnes for the third-best player in the league is "short-sighted."

If they can get Dieng, that's great. But there are a couple dozen NBA players who can defend the rim. There's only one Kevin Love.

I wish they had a better point guard, but what does it matter, LeBron will run the offense anyway.

They were always strong on offense too... they just didn't look it because people were counting scoring per game, not per possession.

His biggest flaws are covered by other players' strengths, but they're going to have to bench those players to make room for him.
