LeBron ball handler
Green
Kuz
AD
Dwight

IF AD and Kuz improves their 3 ball - which they say they have. If only Kuz and AD could shoot like Durant. Then they would dominate.

We don't disagree anyway, KCP doesn't play D & all the evidence we have in the form of Advanced Stats/Metrics agrees with that[/b]. https://www.cleaningtheglass.com/stats/player/547/onoff#tab-team_efficiency

It's great that we agree on most of our opinions and the basis/stats are there too.
I think it's pretty clear now that how much I dislike KCP and I actually I based most of it on how much he disappeared when his team needed him most esp when Lebron and Ball got hurt and the time about the trade rumors started. His catch and shoot % seems good enough but then again I ask, how well did he do in Dec to Feb the past 2 years from that stat?
[b]Let me be clear again that I am hoping and praying that he proves me wrong this coming season bec if he fails esp in the early part, might as well give those minutes to Caruso. Rivers would find mins to Lou Williams even if he's a bad defender bet timeouts the last 1-2 mins of his shooting, Might as well use those instances on Cook who shot 46.6% last season and 49% 2 years ago on catch and shoot from the 3pt area, then use Bradley or Caruso on defense.


You're allowing your bias toward KCP affect your ability to be objective. I give you credit for acknowledging your bias. You conveniently picked a few months in which KCP was awful to state how useless he his. On the other hand, you used a month or so in which Caruso was solid to state how much better he was. I'm honestly not sure why people continue to use Caruso's small sample size to project his future. Some are even saying he's an excellent shooter... a guy who had 24 3PM last season. Let that sink in for a second. I pretty much have to assume much of Caruso's praise are hyperbolic.

I just hope and pray KCP proves me wrong bec you are right I am biased against him but not just nitpicking some 3pt shooting stats though.
He has a career 34.5% from the 3pt area, which he hit last season but to most, that's quite alright but based on ESPN for the entire SG's, only 9 players were worst than him. But it's not just about 3pt shooting, he also ranked very low on baskeball ref DRTG AND DBPM BUT ok, some fans don't like those advanced stats, that is why ESPN invented their own advanced metric, the DRPM where he ranked 96th among 108 SGs, last 3 years he has a negative rating but again I would be ecstatic if he proves me wrong this coming season.

i dont mind a 3 pt specialist but couldnt we at least signed a player who is strong enough to guard a 3 and 4. toronto last year had a big lineup that gsw couldnt match up with.

You really think Anthony Davis couldn't guard tall SF and esp 4?
