Drafted him thinking his game should age gracefully, but man, he's out there thinking he is Klay Thompson or something.

i traded for this guy with fournier and reddish package in a 16 team. Also almost traded my smart at first.

Nobody in their right mind wants him. I'm in a ten team league and waiver is bone dry. At this point, I'm waiting for a significant injury so that minutes and opportunity opens up for someone on waivers.

I would like to think this is the lowest you can go with LMA. It can only go up from here. This might also be denial...we will see with time. 

Instead of 4 points and 3 rebounds he could get 2 points and 1 rebound. I don’t think we have seen the lowest yet.

His numbers had been slowly regressing the last 2 seasons prior to this campaign but he's been horrible. That is why I am weary of drafting players older than 32 unless they drop many rounds and is a low risk pick. Part of the reason LBJ has been on my DND list but he defies aging :)

If I was in a 10T league right now, LMA is definitely on the list of potential drops...he needs to go back to his mid range/post game. He doesn't fit when they want him to stretch the floor and shoot the 3...

It seems like the new Spurs offense is a quicker tempo and with the youth movement LMA is getting lost.

FiveThirtyEight posted this breakdown of how the Spurs are playing this year with/without their 2 veteran starters and it's something clearly worth worrying about if you're an LMA owner. They're bad when they have both DeRozan and Aldridge on the floor, or even just Aldridge. They're still in the positive differential just DeRozan, and kinda awesome when neither of them are there.

Of course, obvious disclaimers on small sample size and whatnot. But if I was an LMA or DeRozan owner, I'd be trying to move them pronto. Or hope for a trade.

Yeah at this point a trade is the best we can hope for. Ain't nobody taking LMA in any leagues right now lol, his value is rock bottom

Playing against KP tonight, you can expect him to not play many minutes. Kp is going to destroy him.

Exactly why i benched him. Man gets zero rebounds against true centers imagine a stretch 5?

You can tell he doesnt do well against teams with imposing big men. Like almost scared to bang down low, or even be a presence at all against a decent front-court.

His only two solid games recently came against OKC and a kat-less MIN, which were prob easier matchups for him. If he has a matchup with a weaker front-court, which wont happen often, then he may have a good game. But seems like most nights will be a struggle 😕
