Like I said Kerr is straightforward and pretty honest with the media.

16 minutes. He’s not going to sustain 9-cat standard league value with those kind of minutes. He had a good game against Orlando. Let’s calm down a bit in terms of the hype here.

 

Def a pick up in deep 14+ teamers.

How many potential studs that break the mold are you going to miss out on if you use the logic that "he's not going to sustain value?"

 

This kind of thinking usually gets me in baseball when I see some "lucky chump" like Cody Bellinger and think that it's just a hot streak. In basketball? It's almost always a result of great unrecognized talent and 9 times out of 10 leads to a burning.

 

Jordan Bell has:

1. An AMAZING PER

2. A championship coach who was also a championship player who is singing his praises

3. A chip on his shoulder

4. A system and set of teammates that fosters a ridiculous amount of open looks

5. 1 percent ownership

Decided to take a flier on him in my 12 man with Dedmon on my IL with this latest performance.. they blow so many teams out - they can afford to rest players, and Kerr is getting pressured by his players / media / fans to play him more, and he's a per-minute monster.. 

 

He has the potential to swing the blocks cat by himself as long as he gets a steady 15 mpg, and I think at some point he'll just render Pachulia obsolete because this guy has a long term future with the team, and he's a scary defensive player to put next to Durant and Draymond.

16 minutes with Bell - scarily enough, is more than plenty, you can't say that for most players.

 

His issue hasn't been 16 mpg, it's been getting 2 minutes for 5 games straight and then 12 minutes, and when he gets those 12 minute stints he's putting up crazy multi-cat lines.

 

So let's extrapolate and say with all the positive things Kerr and teammates are saying about needing to get him on the floor, him learning the schemes (they say he's speaking to assistant coaches and teammates at every opportunity to keep learning), he suddenly either takes over as a starter for Pachulia, or they just completely unleash him because frankly they can afford to do so, then you have a monster per-minute C on your hands.

With how good this rookie class has been (one of of the best in recent memory), not taking a chance on a guy with monster upside when you've seen what some of the others have done (Markkanen, Mitchell, Tatum, DSJ, John Collins, Kuzma) could be a big mistake. The consensus is Bell should've been a top 15-20 pick, not a 2nd rounder, but everyone made a mistake overlooking his talent (except GSW).
