PGs dont have that much impact anyway give me a great wing over a great scoring PG any day.
I remember that Swedd was all over Lillard.
And at the end of the season, I did a little research to discover that his offensive efficiency was off the charts. I thought he had enough length to occasionally pair with Kemba.
You cannot compare MKG and Lillard at this point. There is a big age difference. We got a super-young prospect who proved himself against the toughest competition in the nation, unlike Lillard. Lillard is older and more of a finished product. Compare MKG and Lillard in 3-4 years.
Also, you give a rookie (especially a PG) better teammates to work with, and he is going to look way better. Time will tell.
I like what MKG did last night.
Players don't usually develop main skills that late into their careers ie shooting and handle.
You generally are not gonna go from being a bad shooter to a dead eye shooter and you generally are not gonna go from a average handle to keeping the ball on a string in the NBA.
Lol Lillard played no competition.
Your skills dont go up and down considering your competition.
You could put Henderson in a gym alone and he wouldnt be a good 3pt shooter (much less playing anyone in a real game).
You could have Carroll playing a high school team and he wouldnt all of a sudden have a sick handle.
