Yeah I’m not equating them as players. Bledsoe’s been open about his anxiety and it was apparent right away Jabari had something cooking. Maybe it’s just a learning disability? There’s some disconnect there. Just wondering how the Bucks view/handle the brains of their guys.



JS just did a profile on Bucks sports psychologist. Sounds he's not returning though.

Middleton got hosed. Derozan, Booker, Mitchell, Lavine, McCollum, Lou Williams, Hield, Gallinari, Tatum, all rated higher despite none of those guys being better than him last season.

And Doncic, though I don't really have a gripe with that given what he did last season and projecting him forward.

Lopez also hosed, though his lack of box score stuffing obviously contributed.

Besides the fact that it seems no one in here fully understands that overall rating isn’t and hasn’t been the end all be all regarding how a player plays in 2k for almost a decade. I’d like to hear why Middleton was better than Lou Williams, Gallinari, Or Booker last year.

I actually that Middleton’s rating is about right. Bledsoe should be higher than Middleton.

Well for starters, RAPM rank:

Middleton 24th
Gallinari 48th
Williams 166th
Booker 435th

There are two sides to the floor. Middleton was a positive contributor on both ends, and he's the only one who was. People around here like to **** on Middleton for the player he isn't instead of appreciating the player he actually is. Is he worth his deal? No. Is he really **** good, yes.

Well the offer proposed is Bledsoe to a third team and three FRPs. The problem is that the IND pick is lottery protected and that our two next available picks are in 2024 and 2026. Still I think some of DDV, Brown, Wilson has to be involved. Hopefully WAS is high on at least one of these players.


Nope, they aren't.

You think he's the 57th best player in the NBA?

We thinking 2k looks at RAPM before deciding on their own player rankings?

Middleton is boring. That's essentially why those other guys are higher than him.

I mean are you’re gonna only use rapm as a strict ranking of who’s better? Really?

You said Middleton was about right. According to those ratings he would be tied for 57th

In regards to the whole 2k rating thing, the ratings are naturally a composite of a multitude of skill ratings. My guess would be that it’d be hard to disagree with a ton of those individual skill ratings that make up his composite. He’s just average to good at a lot of things.

Welp, today’s Dragan Bender signing concludes our summer of 2019 roster suggestions. It’s been an absolute pleasure. Unless you freaks wanna go back and forth on some Exhibit 10 candidates...

I can't **** believe we signed **** Luke Maye. He can't do ****. This is a classic Herb Kohl Exhibit 10 signing. If the owners (they're Billionaires with a B in case you forgot) would be willing to spend a little money, we could have gotten Aubrey Dawkins. Now you tell me who you'd rather have on that training camp deal. But instead, we're stuck with Luke **** Maye. Team is going to **** now that Lasry took over. Unbelievable. Classic Bucks treadmill move.

Looks like my guy Jock Landale was in the running for the final spot until Bender signed. He’ll now head off to Lithuania/The Euroleague.

Then it was a good decision. From what I saw of SL, it was obvious Landale is not NBA material.

Disagree but we’ll see. The Bucks obviously gave him strong consideration.

Terrible athlete and he couldn't shoot unless he was completely set - which took him far too long to go against NBA teams. No way he can compete against NBA athletes.
