well, everybody now knows he can be a winner. he was even voted #3 in terms of best players under 25 to build around
Well I think everyone knows he can score. For example, he scored 70 points on Boston, yet we still lost that game. I think he has better players around him now, and that WS% will increase, but I was just making the observation. And from that observation, I could see how that translated into less votes for him for All NBA squads.
Pretty crazy to think that going into his 6th year, this will be the first time he has had a 2nd year coach (and a decent one at that), 2 straight years of a good starting PG, good defensive wings, shooting and a forward who is a threat to score (hopefully) in Ayton.
Just picked a random mid season starting lineup off BRef from the last 5 years to illustrate. Continuity and quality teammates should hopefully have a big impact next year, on Booker and the team.
19-20 - D. Ayton · D. Booker · M. Bridges · K. Oubre · R. Rubio
18-19 - D. Ayton · D. Booker · M. Bridges · D. Melton · T. Warren
17-18 - D. Booker · T. Chandler · M. Chriss · T. Ulis · T. Warren
16-17 - E. Bledsoe · D. Booker · M. Chriss · A. Len · T. Warren
15-16 - D. Booker · T. Chandler · A. Goodwin · M. Morris · P. Tucker
that 15-16 lineup makes me want to barf lol.
