Isnt it crazy to think that he is possibly maybe the 2nd best player in his draft class. I think it goes
Durant ( obvious)
i would put Horford over him, if horford wasn't so picky with his shots he could easily average 20 & 10 instead of 10 & 10. Also i think Marc Gasol is close if not better than him.
Isnt Marc in a different draft class?? They are in the same rookie class but Gasol was drafted a while back. Anyway, what about Jeff Green, Jakim Noah, Glen Davis, Thad Young, Wilson Chandler?? All of those guys start except for Davis and its because he is behind a HOFer. Why doesnt Landry start?? Because of Chucky Hayse and Louis Scola?? I guess. . .
finishing games is more important starting, ( except for iverson of course), landry has more impact than the others mentioned
Jeff Green - 15points, 6rebounds, 2assist, 1block, 1steal
Joakim Noah - 10points, 12rebounds, 2assist, 2blocks, 1steal
Thad Young - 16points, 5rebounds, 2assist, 1steal
Wilson Chandler - 15points, 5rebounds, 2assist, 1block
Carl Landry - 16points, 6rebounds, 1assist, 1block
Those are the numbers for this year my man. How can you say that he is any better than anyone else that I listed?? Come on man...
Aaron Afflalo starts over Earl Smith... That doesn't mean he's the better player. Some coaches just have different philosophies in regards to certain players. I think that's the case with Landry. Scola is a very underrated player, but I think Landry is the best power forward on the team.
I don't think Landry is the 2nd best player out of his draft class, but he definitely fits somewhere in between 5-10.
Carl is 2nd n the league in 4th quarter scoring, shoots nearly 58% and is stop 10th in free shooting. 8 ball the only thing missing from your list is mpg, Carl is avg 25 mpg. What about Aaron Brooks hes a 17 ppg and 6 apg. He was taken 5 picks ahead of Carl he should make the list. Can yall please give boi Morey some credit? Great observation double B.
