Myles Turner 2020-2021 Outlook


Recommended Posts

So Pacers fans were right that coaching was a problem. Nate had me believing that the Domas-Myles pairing couldn't work. Myles was always one of my players. Injuries played a huge part too into how frustrating the Pacers were last season. All of their starters took turns getting injured along with trying to integrate Dipo again. They really didn't get into a rhythm. I hope they avoid getting bitten by the bug this season.

Hey! No matter what....Donut. Give. Up!

He is still a very useful player to own, I think. There are almost no shot blockers, and ones who don't hurt you in FT%? Plus get 3's? And he is not just a shot blocker, he is one of the best.

Don't go wishing for a players injuries. Especially not when the guy you're betting on misses even more games each year.

As of last night he's #1 on Yahoo H2H 9 cat.  Congrats to the big guy on a helluva start!

Absolute stud, and Sabonis is injury prone, if he goes down he’d be feasting even more with extended minutes and more boards

Show me where I “wished”, just stated a fact if for some reason he gets injured it increases his value.  Good try tho trying to bait me into something I didn’t say

He actually plays worse without Sabonis.

Not understanding? How does playing with Sabonis help his blocks, steals, ft% ? Which has catapulted him into the number 1 ranked play atm in yahoo.  If anything he’d get 2-3 more boards per game if he was the center

Myles has 0 offensive skills compared to Sabonis. If you have the focus on Myles as the go-to guy, the team plays a lot worse since hes not a good passer as Sabonis.

Myles is the player you want to get the blocks, the occasional steals and 3s on elite %s. Hes not a rebounder, watch some games pls.

You make no Sense.  Myles Turner isn’t a top 50-60 player for his scoring 1st off.

 

2nd off he’s been an elite shot blocker since he’s entered the league with or without Sabonis.  
 

3rd off he doesn’t give you elite %’s , WATCH some games please

That’s what I thought 😂

It's simple: Playing with good players makes you better.  Anyone who played basketball at any level knows this. 

Playing with Sabonis  makes your job easier on D.  You have  a lot less to do because you don't have to play help defense as much  as you would if you are playing with Bitadze/McDermott.

Would you rather play with Sabonis  or Bitadze/McDermott?

I’m a firm believer of more minutes due to injury which equates to more stats.  Too each there own but I see more opportunities if said player who plays same position gets injured.

You have probably never watched Myles playing as a #1 in the paint, so you are projecting better stats based on bigger usage. 😄

Its pointless to discuss.

Why don’t you guys just look at Turners game logs from end of last year when Sabonis was out?

Agreed... lol first time owner of Myles... and i'm like this dude is the tallest on the court and he's' running off to the side as Small forward 3D guy.. unless sabonis plays out of the perimeter that's when Myles decides to cut in to the basket. Otherwise he barely gets touches as Sabonis dominates most bigs inside. I didn't draft him for points.. Blocks are hard to come by off WW, so that's why i drafted turner. If he's able to give me pts, 3's and ftm then damn i'm winning.

Yeah, he always struggles against Steven Adams.  Zion;s ability to get to the basket hasn't helped.  Sabonis has struggled with fouls too.  Yahoo! has him with 1 BLK.  I know he had what appeared to be 3 certain BLKs in the 1st half and another that could have been another block.  Sometimes determining what is a block or steal in the NBA is like trying to determine what is a catch or pass interference in the NFL.

7 more blocks. Ridiculous. Still a quarter to go.

 

This guy is savage.  He singlehandedly can win H2H blocks in a good week.  And usually helps percents and sometimes hits threes.  Awesome.  Don't even mind the lack of boards some nights.

Seriously, this guy is single handedly winning me a category every week. He was my flyer blocks specialist cause I literally have no other blocks guys. And I’m rolling opponents in that category so far.
