also a lot of this is just wrong on a pure base level... like jayson tatum over KD. if the celtics called the warriors and offered that trade straight up the warriors would laugh in their faces but boston would do it in a heartbeat

J0rdan S., Friday, 21 December 2018 18:08 (ten months ago) link

yeah there some overvaluing of young players on cheap contracts going on here for sure, which is all well and good but you have to take in to consideration that young players are bad

lag∞n, Friday, 21 December 2018 18:09 (ten months ago) link

if the bulls called the suns and offered wendell carter straight up for deandre ayton the suns would block the bulls front office's number

J0rdan S., Friday, 21 December 2018 18:10 (ten months ago) link

btw watched ayton the other night and hes def got some offensive game but yeah he looked tired out there energy levels cld be a problem

lag∞n, Friday, 21 December 2018 18:14 (ten months ago) link

i don't necessarily think ayton is better than carter but the idea that carter has more trade value than ayton right now is crazy

J0rdan S., Friday, 21 December 2018 18:15 (ten months ago) link

its wrong for sure

lag∞n, Friday, 21 December 2018 18:16 (ten months ago) link

the list is bad also why did they do the fancy design which relegates the info youre looking for to a fraction of the screen (on desktop)

lag∞n, Friday, 21 December 2018 18:17 (ten months ago) link

it does look way better on mobile

J0rdan S., Friday, 21 December 2018 18:18 (ten months ago) link

yeah I think the list would be better if he abandoned the tiers because clearly there are some players on bigger contracts that would definitely get traded for cheaper youngr players as jordan mentioned. I like the michelin stars tho haha, and the pantheon levels are just from his book

k3vin k., Friday, 21 December 2018 18:18 (ten months ago) link

got the #1 right obv :P

frogbs, Friday, 21 December 2018 18:19 (ten months ago) link

its funny because michelin ratings at least for american restaurants are also very bad and nonsensical

lag∞n, Friday, 21 December 2018 18:20 (ten months ago) link

brow is way better than "the freak"

lag∞n, Friday, 21 December 2018 18:20 (ten months ago) link

that one makes sense to me because of the contracts

J0rdan S., Friday, 21 December 2018 18:23 (ten months ago) link

if the bucks offered giannis to pelicans for brow they would have to do it

J0rdan S., Friday, 21 December 2018 18:23 (ten months ago) link

I must say that page has great web design (at least on my iPhone).

Mr. Snrub, Friday, 21 December 2018 18:25 (ten months ago) link

idk one player option year is not a huge differentiator in the long run, i mean maybe theyd do it cause cause their roster is garbage making a brow trade demand likely but that situation is just gonna make giannis unhappy too

lag∞n, Friday, 21 December 2018 18:27 (ten months ago) link

he's going to beat this michelin star concept into the ground for like the next five years

Jeff Bathos (symsymsym), Friday, 21 December 2018 18:28 (ten months ago) link

id trade giannis for brow if i were the bucks but if i were the pelicans and id rather trade brow for some sort of more rebuilding type package

lag∞n, Friday, 21 December 2018 18:29 (ten months ago) link

basically the context of the teams situation is completely missing from this, its more of a all things being equal wld u trade which is fine

lag∞n, Friday, 21 December 2018 18:30 (ten months ago) link

like the warriors wldnt trade kd for tatum but if steph went down w a season ending injury tomorrow they prob wld since kd is prob out after this season

love to score 20 points a game and not really do other stuff

call all destroyer, Friday, 21 December 2018 21:52 (ten months ago) link

wow their stats are uncannily similar

k3vin k., Saturday, 22 December 2018 00:47 (ten months ago) link

i feel like deep down i always knew that ben gordon was the correct comparison but would never admit it to myself

Clay, Saturday, 22 December 2018 01:15 (ten months ago) link

i checked their per game stats really quick after thinking of that before i posted it and am v. proud of myself after seeing their career shooting percentages and advanced rate stats.

call all destroyer, Saturday, 22 December 2018 01:21 (ten months ago) link

the advanced rate stats are eerie

J0rdan S., Saturday, 22 December 2018 09:25 (ten months ago) link

wow, that's impressively bad to look at on my laptop.

i know teams don't like to unload rookies that look somewhat promising, but there are a bunch on that list that are a long way from being actual good nba players.
