not everybody gets to play in public league.  in competitive leagues with basketball junkies, they all know turner was due for a big year.  15pt/10reb/2blocks/1stl 1three is second round value, so even getting him 3rd round(26) you're still getting a postive return.  so unless you burn that early pick someone else will snatch him up.  

 

the only other way to draft him at 64 would be if you had an early early draft 1 month ago, but 64 is way too low.  no way he gets that low now.

Got him at 66 in a money league. Time to enjoy the ride

Did and was able to snag this cat at 70, when he had the concussion protocol. So glad he missed that time. Strap yourselves in kids!!

After 1 game? With OT? Come on now

That's cool.  I'll check back with you in a few games and see if you change your mind.  Milsap and horford are being drafted second round for similar stats.  I think Turner can do 15pt 8reb 0.5three 0.9stl 2.1blocks on .500 fg% and .760ft%.  I would say these are even modest projections and he may end up doing much better.

A few games isn't going to change anything either. There are 82 games in a season man...a handful of games isn't going to change my opinion. When it's the ASB and Myles is playing better than Brook, then I'll concede. Until then, it's a waste of time to go back and forth about draft position. I've been playing fantasy too long to overreact to the first week of any sport.

 

EDIT: Keep in mind I never said Myles Turner would be a bad fantasy asset. All I said is I wouldn't take him in the top 30 picks.

I am really impressed by his rebounding today. That was his biggest weak point last season.

 

Yeah, he seemed clueless last year as far as positioning and timing.  I'm inclined to believe that rebounding is genetic so I'm only expecting 5 or 6 rebs/game.  if he's going to get 15 fgas up and take 5 fts though he's scoring 20 ppg and getting a couple blocks.

 

PS - learning to rebound has happened in the past (see Dirk Nowitzki) so we can't rule it out.

Wait..."rebounding is genetic"..."learning to rebound has happened in the past" ...so does the rebounding ability of his father completely determine his ability or not? lol

I think it's passed on the Mother's side, like baldness, or defense.

3.3 blocks in the playoffs and faster offense this year and my draft night trade of giving up aaron gordon for him looks like a steal.

So happppppppy haha. Lets enjoy this ride to the playoffs together fellas!!!!!

Blake is in a contract year. He's 1,000% motivated to have his best year ever.  I could see Blake drop 24pts/11rbs/5assts/1stl/.7blk/.7threes/50FG%/73FT%/36mpg

 

Love will be Love. Poor FG%. 10rpg. 2 threes. he'll sit in the 16ppg range unless Kyrie goes down with an injury. 

 

LMA will replicate last year's #'s with lots of random rest games seeing as how the Spurs will dominate all year as well as lock up their playoff position early. 

 

I'd take Turner over Love/LMA.  But Blake is on a mission to cash-in.
