nate's talking about Anthony Davis. I thought it was Drummond too, but the eFG was a dead giveaway that it definitely wasn't. It's interesting that the 2 best up-and-coming bigs both have the initials AD.

we were just talking about Drummond, thus my confusion.  Thanks.

On DeAndre Jordan

Not really on the radar for draft leagues but now he will could be as high as a 2nd round pick. 13.1% OREB and 29.8 DREB  with 5.2% BLKs.  TOV% is OK at 14.2%. He has tier 5 usage at 11.8% so his eFG of  66.3% looks great but really is irrelevant.  Fouls are a little high he projects out to having 269 fouls at 2925 mins.  His defense is a 98 so his WIS should be 90+

On Kevin Love

Mr Clean might be having his best season.  As yes he's still Mr. Clean has a 9.2% TOV and will have only (projected) 148 fouls in 2883 mins.  This is with an tier 2 usage of 28.5%.  His eFG is 52.6% and his TS% 59.3, so he's getting to the line at a pretty nice clip. Also has 8.9% OREB and 30.1% DREB with a 20.4% Assist (but again that will be nerfed by about 30%).  Plus his three 3 point shooting... he's projected to have 190 made threes at 38% shooting. Now the stumbling block for Love is his defense of course but right now its at 103, so we will see what WIS does.

looks like someone might join the mutombo/camby/chandler/ 2nd round d/boards/low usg group

My thoughts as well.. he's not better than Rodman or Wallace. But I would choose him over Camby? Maybe not but its close. Over Mutombo and Chandler? Yeah probably

joakim noah should have a oretty good year to use if he gets 90/100 D from end-of-yr awards

Noah could be interesting also because his assists will be around 18% and we will see what his effectiveness rating is at SF.  But what might hold him back is his eFG which is 48.5% at a 18.2% Usage.  Also TOV% is at 16.9%

Sure, his eFG is a tad bit low, but he is a solid rebounder (not elite, though), and as you said, he's a very good passer for his position. Looking at it, Noah will basically be like Boerwinkle with lower reb%, but better defense.

LOL i was going to a blurb on Noah and my title was going to be "The Tom Boerwinkle of our Generation"

Well great minds think alike
3/19/2014 9:03 PM
but he has an unfortunately high usage for that low efg%
3/20/2014 7:29 PM
Stephen Curry is looking good right now: 55.5% eFG @ 28.2% usage, 40.1 ast% (although this will be reduced to 32-ish), and might break his records for 3pm and 3pa. Boards are on pace to be a bit better than last year as well. Defense will most likely be an issue, but we'll see.

Curry's defense at least statistically has been better this year than last he had a 107 and this year I believe its a 103. So it should be better this year....

AD will HAVE to be a 90D+ since he should be a lock for the all defensive team as the NBA blocks leader. Wonder if he will be a SF? Tov% is down this year (8.8% right now), efg is up and FGA/FTA ratio is better. A tad high on the pf side but into the 4-point usage tier with a decent .522 efg right now (likely to see a bump if he keeps up what he's been doing the last few games.)
Yeah Nate just really took a look at Anthony Davis and think he may join the Alonzo Mourning, Amare Stoudmire group.  25.3% Usage with an eFG of 53.1.  His scoring efficiency is very high shooting/scoring is 1.405.  His TOV is 8.6%, STl 2% and BLK is 6.6%.  But his actual defense rating is 104 is we will see how WIS deals with that. Also 10.4/23.2 OREB/DREB
