40. "none of those guys have done more this year than ed" In response to In response to 32
i have no dog in this but just go look at the numbers. he's as good this season as ibaka and larry sanders and is still getting used to being a starter. he's looked like the best player on the court in stretches.
most are just in your head because they have had the pt for a while like vucevic, hickson, tyreke, and parsons. of those only hickson has a higher PER, and that's because nobody else on his team looks for boards. and their bench is shit.
and some...like fucking lin and fucking derozan and fucking brandon knight aren't even plus players at their position.
so yes, it's not impossible to put him at 25, even if 30 is reasonable too. 40 is just hating.
wall and drummond are better but have had limits on their playing time this year. kemba is on the same career trajectory. those are the only 3 that legitimately excite me more than ed. i assume one of them is the ghost at 23.
