Do any of you know how win shares are calculated? For the love of all that is holy, stop misappropriating win shares as a crux of an argument. I'm really sick of seeing this happen over and over again

Dinwiddie > Russell 

Lin might be gone but the nets head coach is just fcking atrocious remember how that standup comedian lets everyone in their roster play thats why nets team is sucking in real life and fantasy cause o

How do you score 25+ two games in a row and then completely forget how to shoot the third game? He's such a puzzle and definition of inconsistent...so streaky

Yup next time he goes on a hot streak, I am selling high. 

Way too inconsistent and ruins fg% when he doesn't get it going.

His career FG%:

 

15-16: 41%

16-17: 41%

17-18: 41%

18-19: 41%

 

Ruins FG%, yes, but you can't call that inconsistent.

You shouldn't have taken him ahead of them, what the hell. The guy is a good source of points, threes, and assists, but I still don't understand all the fg%, complaints. It's like drafting capela and then getting sad that he's ruining your ft%. Or drafting Lonzo last year and thinking he'd shoot well. Like wtf lol

Typical 'fantasy scare' syndrome...

 

Yeah he sucked today, but he posted top 30~50(based on league settings) until now.

 

calm down and just deal with the occasional duds. 

 

He'll have it a bit more often compared to the true elite players, but that's why you were able to pick him in the 4~6th round or so.

 

A solid top 50~60 with upside. don't panic.

Correct me if I'm wrong, as I was in and out of the game. Didn't Dinwiddie have 0 points after the 1st quarter, maybe even at the half? He ended with 25. We saw this in the opener, too, but if he was benched and losing minutes, that's a risk you have to take. Granted, it's really not going to happen all that often. It looks like his floor is 25 minutes on any given night.

I watch a lot of Net games. the coach trusts Dinwiddie way more. Russell is extremely inconsistent. He's basically the same player he was as a rookie.

This is very true. I’ve owned him multiple times throughout his young career as I’m always tantalized by his upside. Fact is he’s just an inconsistent player who doesn’t put forth the effort every night. I’m going to try and ship him if he can put a good week together, otherwise I’ll just hold and hope he comes up big when it matters.

Man I agree that russell doesn't always give 100%, kinda like wiggins, but you can't honestly think dinwiddie is a better player. If he was then he would be a starter in the league by now

If you look up their advanced metris like Win Shares, Win Shares / 48, VORP, and Per, they will all say Dinwiddie is the better player. n

 

Politics play a huge part about whether a player gets minutes. You will play your #2 pick if he struggles, because he's a sunk cost and you need to find out if you can salvage your investment. Whereas a second round pick player might never get the opportunity because the investment in him is rather small.
