Beasley

I'd like to see him on the spurs on in D'Antoni's system.


As for unknown players, I'd go with a player like Aaron brooks.

Re: Opportunity in the NBA

OJ Mayo is a great example, Basel. That's actually who I had in mind when I was reading through this thread. Bledsoe is a good one too.

You know who is the ultimate "different situation" guy, Manu. It would have been very interesting to see him as the alpha dog on a team somewhere between 2005 and a few years ago.

What happened to Birdman? Went from undrafted DLeague to DPOY candidate.

He has every opportunity in the world right now. His team is basically asking him to be a chucker

May be right, but isn't it too early to put Drummond on this list? Additionally - McGee seems to be in a pretty good situation right now in Denver...

It's not like the Pistons are going anywhere so why not give the kid extended PT? Start building chemistry with Monroe.

His #s also warrant it with TRB% of 20 (6th in the league), ORB% of 16.4 (2nd), DRB% of 23.7 (16th) and BLK% of 6.1 (8th). Just imagine what his stats will be with maybe 29-32mins of PT.

Better if McGee started and/or also got extended PT. I'm baffled as to why Koufos gets the nod over him.

Re: Opportunity in the NBA

Tyreke Evans is another guy that doesn't necessarily need more of a green light, but a change of scenery would do wonders for that kid.

I honestly think Manu was in the best possible situation for himself, because I don't think having him as your #1 gets you any further than some pretty regular-season stats and a first-round exit(like we're seeing with Harden right now), to say nothing of his propensity to get injured.

Manu between 04-10 was considered to be no worse the 3rd best SG in the league. How much better could it have gotten?

Re: Opportunity in the NBA

Evan Turner is another prime example, a guy a lot of people (myself included) thought could put up big time numbers if given more of an opportunity. He's really killing it for the 76ers this year now that he's getting 36 minutes a night.

I'm not saying his reputation around the league would have been any better, Kobe and Wade (at least from '05 onwards) were going to be clearly better than him year in and year out. But it would have been kind of cool to see him as a number one option on a mediocre team for a season to see what he could have done with it.

He wouldn't have been any different than Ray Allen on the Sonics or Paul Pierce during the Antoine Walker days, and he might have been slightly worse. Manu wouldn't have been any more impressive scoring 23 a night on a 48-win team than every other guy who's ever done it.
