Don't think he's a good defender (I think I've seen you call him the worst defender of our trio last season)
He is not a good defender. there are arguments to be made he is average or better. defense is harder to quantify and more subjective.
Don't think he's an All star caliber player
He isnt. this is just a flat out fact. his numbers are no where close to all-star calibur either in volume or efficiency.
Don't think he was our best player in the playoffs
He probably was... i just dont think a 5 game sample in a series we lost holds more weight then 3 years of regular season games
Think he's overrated.
that is undeniable. people are talking about him being an all-star and max player. 14 points on 50 TS%?And is a worse player than Knox.
Levert is better now, knox i believe has the higher ceilingYou need to evaluate your definition of loving a player
actually... i think you do. loving someone/something is about loving them undoncitionally... about accepting their flaws and sitll embracing them. i dont need my daughter to be the smarters, most beautiful, most talented person in the world to lover her. i dont need levert to be an allstar to love him
RHJ had his flaws, he wasnt an all-star, i loved him. arman gilliam, chris morris... loved them. not all-stars, not max guys..
i want someone to make a legit argument that caris is an all-star level player or max guy before telling me im not allowed to like a player while saying they arent those things above.
what player who has done what caris has at his age with his injury history has ever come even close to a max deal?
what player with Caris numbers has ever made an all-star team?
what player of caris age with his numbers and injury history has ever made the jump to a 20/5/4 type player the next year?
the notion he is a max player or that its a risk he may be at years end is absurd. this is no different then all the crabbe hate i got for daring to c all him a role player and that harris is the same calibur guy. everyone called me a hater... i never hated crabbe, i thought he was a great fit just overpaid and overrated by our board. by last year most here hated him and wanted him gone while i was defending him because it went overboard
being a fan doesnt mean you have to be a homer
