Yet another hard choice as usually a point guard leads the team in assists.  The difference here is Hayward I believe will play around 10 more minutes a game than Burke and will have the ball in his hands more.  Hayward said he has been working really hard on his dribbling and driving which means if he gets in the lane lots of open dunks for Favors and Kanter will be happening.

    Richard Jefferson is very good three point shooter, and you mentioned Trey over him? Also, Kanter and Favors is not a “huge upgrade” over two guys who were averaging 9 and 7 RPG. They’ll probably put up very similar rebound totals.

    • Josh Haslam

      If Kanter and Favors average 10 a game that to me is a big upgrade solely because 4 rebounds a game more usually equates to a few extra wins in close games. Kanter and Favors rebound at a much higher rate than Al or Sap which even for a 9 and 7 rebounder from a starting PF and Center is considerably low compared to league average. As for not mentioning RJ I don’t think he’ll play very much to even be considered in the discussion but yes true he is a good three point shooter when given the minutes.
