    it seems like a confidence issue with lebron too... because in his old cleveland/heat days those were always defensively solid teams (say what you want about mike brown but he was a great defensive coach) with good defensive rotations and personnel. now lebron looks over at kyrie and kevin love (who are sub par and don't understand good team defense/schemes lebron is saying "fuck it" and saving himself on the defensive side...

    the thing is... he's kind of saving himself on the offensive side too...

    Barkley on TNT halftime tonight: "Anthony Davis is the 3rd best player in the world." So numbers 1 and 2 are…?? :paranoia:

    Yeah! The best player in the world is Klay Thompson because he leads the league in +/-

    Anthony Davis is supposedly having the best PER in the leagues history. The highest is ~31 but THEBROWs at ~33 right now and was at ~37 just a month ago.

    I realize his PER is through the roof… but 17 games into the season, in last place… seems like #3 in the world is just a bit of hyperbole at this point.

    i dunno man. i don't know if he can keep it up but he has been a world-destroyer this year so far. they're 8-9 in the west and the 2nd best player on his team is uhhhh....omer asik?? zach lowe said he's been the best player in the league this year, and i'm not sure i can argue w/ that. only competition so far is curry and harden, we'll see what happens.

    in related news, look at the top 7 seeds in the west, ommfg

    the seventh seed in the west is projected to win 59 games!!!

    Tyreke Evans been a beast this year, well for the handful games I saw him play at least.

    Feel bad for another Gordon injury, dude was the third/fourth best SG (before Harden left OKC) in the league before he got traded away from the Clips and then injuries just plagued him even further.

    he puts up a lot of stats but he's down to 40% shooting and 61% from the line now w/ a bunch of turnovers and tons of dribbling, i dunno.

    yea it's a shame about gordon, he was playing like a d-leaguer this year b4 getting injured again, right?

    Evans has been average at best. Shooting % is a disaster. Too many turnovers. Basically what you said.

    I have him in fantasy, so it's cringe worthy watching some of those reds light up with missed shot after missed shot.

    I have Kobe, Stephenson, Evans... a recipe for FG % category killer if I've ever seen one. I've actually started sitting them.
