He is prob a top 50 player in the league. Our whole starting lineup might be.
He was #67 coming into last season. I thought he should have been higher.
"...what Richardson did best goes beyond the box score. According to Second Spectrum research, opposing players shot 41.6 percent when Richardson was the closest defender, tied for fifth best among 100 players to defend at least 700 shots last season. The only players with a lower percentage? Anthony Davis, Joel Embiid, Al Horford and Ben Simmons..."
That is genuinely insane that we have four of those players. Insane.
