Nice way to re-introduce himself.

Here's Russell vs KCP's defensive stats/percentiles from last year.

Russell was in his 2nd season, KCP is in his 4th.

So yeah, Russell was pretty underrated defensively, people cared more about the narrative than the actual stats. Which is usually the case when people let the eye test and perception dictate a lot of the equation.

looks like KCP only has as a significant advantage in spot ups, hand offs, and off screens. hard to put into context, but it might be due to the switch everything defense we had last year.

KCP guards the best guard of the opposing team. I doubt Russell would do that while also allowing the offense to run through Lonzo. Guess we'll never know.

Russell played the point guard, he was going up against the best guard on an opposing team 95% of the time.

Can't wait to see what he does in Brooklyn. Have a feeling kid is going to shine this year. Such a shame. Still our best prospect imo. Too bad he'll be running on another team.

I think he'll have a better coach/system too. And less expectations.

Maybe in the future. Last year DLO was not a go-to scorer with the exception of a handful of games. His arrogance exceeded his results IMO

Yeah of course he need to grow mentally and basketball wise, but Lonzo would have helped a lot with that
