Add RHJ to that list since DMC was going to play mostly 4.

More peripheral but this opens up more minutes for Rodions as well... 

 

Lastly, RHJ might be out for the opener as well... that's RHJ, Crabbe, DMC, Napier who could be out... 

 

 

Dlo/Din

CLV/Harris

Harris/CLV

RHJ*/Dudley/Kurucs

Allen/Boss

Why doesn’t he? With Carroll out and Crabbe dinged up, this gives further usage to him. So I guess we will see what he does with it and if he is primed for the breakout many of us believe is in him.

 

Coz of his %’s.  You should be happy if he cracks top 100. Top 50 is ridiculous. Less than zero chance he finishes top 50 imo.

all this hype and i have a feeling we will be somewhat disappointed. hope i'm wrong. must hold strong and not do anything drastic like J-Rich last year or prince

 

What are u even talking about lol. We haven’t seen Levert play a game yet. Babbling about two guys who were putrid the first 6-8 weeks of last year I don’t know how that’s even relevant.

I think he is referring to a lot of impatience GMs that dropped J-rich and Prince after first few weeks of the season when they have subpar performance but in the end, both players finally came through and help a lot of GMs win their league by pick them up from WW.

Can Levert actually stink up the joint for like 3 weeks first than lol. Assuming he’s going to stink to begin the year is pointless.

nobody is assuming he is gonna be bad for first few weeks, only suggestion here is to have patience but if you see any players on the WW that is wroth to pick up , u should do it . Plus most people have too much expectation for levert. What Levert should really be is someone you pick in the last 2 rounds and if he really breaks out that will just make your team even better and less worry about injuries.

My bad, i see the original post now, well if the original post expect Lavert to have a top 50 value then he might be disappointed  but somehow i hope levert can really be that good since i draft him in almost all my leagues but i will be really happy if he can be around top 80 value.

There's been a lot of back and forth on his ranking and stats, i think other than the %s and TOs, his ability to get steals is where he can get the biggest boost, he was at 1.2 steals in 26 last year (1.6 per 36) and even a slight improvement there will make a big difference

yeah no you were right, i'm talking about exercising patience. i'm not expecting top 50 or much for the last pick in my draft. i'm just saying if he does struggle to hold strong and don't panic drop.

Less than zero?  Ok, I am just going to say this - a lot of people probably said the same thing about Jimmy Butler too right before the start of his breakout season (honestly I didn't see it in Jimmy back then).  The year before he blew up, Jimmy shot under 40% from the field.  Back then, did you think he would eventually turn into a top 20 player?  

 

I am not saying Caris will definitely be top 50, but all I am saying is it shouldn't just be dismissed so easily.  The talent is there.  He won't get Thibs run it into the ground minutes like Jimmy did, but the opportunity to shine should be there.  So we shall see....

I could possibly trade my Galli for the other guy's LeVert, but I just don't know...

 

Atkinson's rotations are brain damaging and Gallo (injury risk and all) has no competition...

I’d do it.

Who is playing this cat tonight?

No Crabbe, no Carroll, no Napier...

Also Stanley Johnson questionable, is Bullock/Kennard/GrobIII guarding him?

 

Definitely playing him!

That’s a long time ago and they are very different players. I watched some lavert last season and he does have talent but to say he’ll be top 50 this season is a fantasy within a fantasy. I’ll stick to the less than zero, which from memory,  I don’t think people thought with butler. I’ll gladly eat some stanky crow if I’m wrong.
