    that is an actual stat.

    it just shows all the centers that score more efficently....some that i am sure YOU (but most normal people) would never suspect.

    You know most of those players are total garbage.
    If Whiteside draws a foul and makes the FT's, he's scored on the possession but it doesn't reflect in the shooting % stats.
    Bottom line he's much better then most on your list and he and Gobert are near equal.
    If you are using him in the same sentence now with Cousins and A.D., then it just further verifies how wrong you were about him to begin with.

    it just comes down to what i said--- you have a group of centers that (i) cant shoot, (ii) cant defend the perimeter, and (iii) cant pass

    those guys just arent that valuable in todays game.

    and Whiteside is one of the few that are left.

    Whiteside is a LOT closer to guys like Gortat, Adams, Howard, Drummond than he is to guys like Gobert, Jokic, Cousins, Gasol

    Except his stats are better then Goberts...:L
    You keep talking Cousins up as something so great.
    Why do his teams SUCK every year?
    How many T's and meltdowns does he have EVERY season?
    If Whiteside did THAT, you would point it out 50,000x.
    Why can't 2 STARS like he and A.D. not even make the playoffs?

    A thread about LeBron turns into a thread about Wiggy bashing Whiteside.

    I'm not even surprised anymore.

    30 Teams in 30 Days: Despite changes in Cleveland, one constant remains for Cavaliers | NBA.com

    This is an article at nba.com that was pretty good.

    Interesting to read about how- they think the Cavs are actually in better shape BOTH long term and short term after the Kyrie deal.


    LeBron certainly gained great respect for Altman, who pulled off a big trade despite everyone in the NBA realizing he had to deal Irving before the season. Cleveland wasn’t in the greatest negotiating position but grabbed a nice haul anyway. Regardless, LeBron-to-the Lakers is an issue for July 2018

    Overall, the summer flip-flopped in Cleveland’s favor as it progressed. After they were sent reeling by the Warriors in June, then dealt with a front-office shakeup during the height of free agency -- which probably cost them a shot at Paul George -- then received a trade demand from Irving, the Cavs rebounded nicely.

    Somehow, the best team in the East had arguably the best offseason in the East.

    dude no one in the WORLD would rather have Whiteside than Cousins. You know that. I know that.

    are you hitting the sauce a little early today? lol



    i mean- like i said- Whiteside is more in the Gortat/Valuncuinas/DHoward mold....guy that does the dirty work underneath - with very limited skill sets

    not like a Cousins or Gasol or Jokic.


    I mean shit- i could grab 18 rebounds a game if I played with Luke Babbit at power forward.

    The Heat had the WORST 2nd best rebounder in the league--- less than 5 a game. that is hard to do



    unlike the Cavs- who had 3 of the top 15 rebounders in the league. That is pretty much unheard of. Never happens.

    If Whiteside had to fight for rebounds with Love, James and TT he might average 7-8 a game.

    In the awfulness that is the Miami front court next to him- im surprised he doesnt average in the mid twenties. lol. Shit- who else is grabbing rebounds on that team? Johnson? Olnyk? Thats a joke right?

    Pat keeps on throwing these 78 mph meat balls that leave the park in a blur.
