Ah I wondered when you would give us another sample of your fine "Ignorance &Hate" fragrance. :lol:
If you're asking me who the Mavs best player is, I'd say Luka. A guy like Delon Wright probably rivals his impact though at this stage in his career. KP may as well if he gets his **** together.

But has he surpassed Delon Wright's level of impact?

99% of people would still take that "guy who plays no defense, can't shoot, is turnover prone, but has the highest usage plus teammates who box out so he can pull down 10 uncontested defensive rebounds a game" over Jayson Tatum in their team.

I guess it's between him and Jokic now.

Where is that guy who posted that by the way? I was anticipating his posts this early season.

That’s not a bad stat line for a fat guy. Wait until he gets in shape.

If Jokic and Curry are in the convo, then Durant absolutely is too.

He's been a monster this year, and the Nets have beaten both the Warriors and Nuggets this year. Their overall records are similar too. And that's with Kyrie Irving going AWOL.

Dinwiddie and 10 1st rounders for Luka.

Kyrie-Harris-Luka-Harden-Durant. Nets score all of the points.

27.3%, it was 9% after first 4 games. Btw, Jordan was MVP with 13% for 3. ;)

He has been very good on defense the last games and overall a good defender this season. Dallas are going to be very dangerous this offseason with the improved defense.

Doncic started bad the season but a bad Doncic is better than 90% of the league. At todays level he is at prime Lebron level.

He's definitely the best 7/11 employee we've ever seen in this league.
