Grego, very good breakdown! I totally forgot that kawhi was DRAFTED by the Pacers!!! The reason they TRADED him was because they ALREADY had Paul George! Isn't that crazy? Yeah, I remember when that trade went down, I was like damn it, the Spurs done did it again. they always make smart moves. I expect the Spurs to be in the top 3 again this year, possibly even #1. They have the same team and Kawhi is in his 2nd season and looks like he has already improved, plus POP speaks very highly of him. You KNOW you're good when a coach like that gives you props.
Another guy to keep an eye out on (if he's still available) is SPENCER HAWES. If anybody remembers, he was a top 10 fantasy player last year in the beginning of the season until he got hurt. Obviously his value is directly tied to Andrew Bynum's health...but with that being a constant question mark, you might wanna scoop him up in case....esp if you HAVE Bynum on your team. Check out his stat line from tonight: 16 pts, 12 rebounds, 2 threes, 2 assists, 2 stls, and 5 blocks.
Thanks dude! I don't come on much to boards in general, but always enjoy reading your stuff.
Yep. Paul George and Granger made it tougher to keep him, but i feel like they drafted for the Spurs once they came on an agreement. It looks like it is working out for both, although I think the Spurs will get the upper hand. I love the guy. He's a Spurs type of player. Hard worker, lets his actions do his talking. Hill was good, but his height and abilities put him up against Parker and Manu. Too much talent in that area.
Hawes definitely puts up some stats. Should be interesting. Although, even last year, Pekovic did well Kevin Love in stats. So it's possible two big men can do well on the same team. It just depends how they get played. But he's a good bench pick up for a deep roster, so I agree he'd be a good one to have.
Another good one is AK47, especially with Love out.
