That's a very assinine assumption, considering Monroe just dropped 18/16, 4 assist, and 2 blocks on the Cavs and TT had a -19 despite scoring 19 points.
ok. Automatically? I just gave my opinion. Pretty ironic you fault me for a small sample size then use one game, and even more specifically one advanced stat to make your point. I think +- is borderline useless but if that was yours sole judge of impact then I guess Thompson is having a better year than Kyrie Irving.
You can take Monroe now and in the future, I don't see anything wrong with that. Personally, I'd take Thompson because I think he has more potential as an already very productive, athletic two way big.
Anyway that's not what this thread is about. I said it in passing, and if you really want to make a thread about it then go to player comparisons.
