The question is, who is going to play perimeter defense?


That's our biggest weakness.

The HOPE is that Bradley can return to Celtic form (not sure about that).

Green is already a very good defender, and then it's nothing after that. KCP in theory can be but he only gets interested when games no longer matter.


I have faith in Green, I’m not as sure about Bradley. He and Crowder seem to be on a similar trend in their careers.

Should ?

I'd predict that LeBron is likeliest the PPG leader this season, but in a prescriptive sense of "should", I'd say AD represents the PPG leader in the team's best possible version of itself, as currently constructed.

It's hard for a player to change a deeply ingrained pattern: LeBron has led his team in PPG scoring every year he's been an NBA pro.

Thanks for the input, folks.

This season is reminding me a bit of when we were heading into the 1986-87 season. In 1985-1986, our scoring leader breakdown was like this:

Kareem - 23.4
Worthy - 20.0
Magic - 18.8 (w/ 12.6 assists)
Byron - 15.4

Then, in 1986-87, our scoring leaders turned out to be:

Magic - 23.9 (still with 12.2 assists)
Worthy - 19.4
Kareem - 17.5
Byron - 17.0

Last year, LBJ racked up 27.2 pts and 8.3 ast/ gm in 35.2 mins a game (albeit in only 55 games). Would love it if he can still produce 23 pts/ 9 ast a night in around 75 games or so.
