It pained me not to count Thabeet, Bennett, et al. But what was more painful was allowing the Knicks to be the best drafting team. I couldn’t in good conscience allow that to happen, hence the minutes limit.
I agree with pretty much all of your points. I just couldn’t figure out a way to reconcile their relative inability to find the court vis a vis their high draft position versus the few guys who tanked or skyrocketed the data. I’m not good enough at math to understand the value at zero equation. I also think I misused vis a vis in the above sentence. It sounded good though. I’m sorry for my unintelligence.
The kids are doing great. Feels like just yesterday I was teaching them how to walk. How time flies!!
My sincerest regards,

That’s confusing. They should just do 1-5 or 1-10

Hey @ClassyCardinalFan67, thanks for your comment! I agree with you that Portland has shown great respect to point guards in the past. I’m not sure who’s in the top tier of respectful fanbases in regards to point guard at this moment, but I for sure am certain that Pacers fans are generally unappreciative of the hard work that goes into point guarding. Again, thanks for your comment @ClassyCardinalFan67 and please don’t hesitate to comment further in the future!!

Not Milwaukee. Jason Kidd is firmly in control there. But Minnesota could be the one you’re thinking of, especially with the whole debacle that occurred before last season. I don’t think he’d try to get fired in Memphis to get the Wolves job, although that may be a more desirable job at this point. So to answer your question, I don’t think there’s any way he’s trying to get any other job right now.

There are some bigs 25 and under whom I didn’t even consider because they didn’t play enough minutes. But as for Dieng, the guy puts up pretty good numbers on a team that needs him (or anyone) to. That may have boosted his value some.
The weird thing is that Dieng played a similar amount of minutes as most of the guys in the 2-12 range. So even though my gut reaction to your question is yes and that the sample size could be applicable to other parts of the list, I think the answer is no in reference to Dieng. Could be I’m overlooking something(s) though.

This is really well written. I enjoyed reading this having absolutely zero interest in the San Diego Padres. Good work, man!

The Bucks are going to be fun to watch over the next few years as they continue to grow and develop. Their turnaround has to be one of the quickest and most drastic in NBA history. I also like Jason Kidd as the coach of this team–he can develop as a coach at the same rate as his players develop on the court.
