As an unabashed homer, I like GTJ.

In 2021, Robinson is the better player but as with the discussions over GTJ and CJ, GTJ is only going to
get better given he's much younger.

Last season it was DR. I've not seen him play this year and have not seen his stats so I cant say. I know Miami is nothing like last year so maybe his game has dropped off. I would think he's comparable at the very least, but that's me thinking which doesnt always work out.

This is harder than one would have thought going into the season. Miami on a whole has regressed, and the guys who normally draw doubles regressing means DR is getting less kickout / open 3's. He has regressed to only a great shooter from a historically good one.

So, right now I would say they are pretty close but that says more about GTJ than DR, as he is only 22 and will very soon be a clearly superior player. His fake-to-midranged-pullup has improved tremendously, and thats something DR cant really do even at 26.

GTJ...not even close

Duncan Robinson is a liability if his shot isn’t falling

duncan robinson pretty much only shoot threes and hes better 3-point shooter than trent jr

trent jr can do more than just shoot threes, so its not really a fair comparison

Dream on, GTJ will be extended this summer. You have a long wait before you see him out of a Blazers jersey.
