    So when does Nurk come back? Is it about mid March? After the break?

    You're famous for cherry picking stats so I have no idea who you're comparing.

    Also, one statistic doesn't negate all the rest of them just because it's favorable to your argument.

    But, you know that.

    You said "the numbers" without providing numbers.

    I didn't provide one statistic, I provided five that in total should give some context.

    No GM in the league would trade Harrell and his BIGGER contract for Kanter. That's my opinion.

    Since the Blazers aren't great with transparency, I can only guess, but here it goes:

    CJ comes back before Nurk. CJ comes back after the all-star break.

    You're changing the argument. We've already covered that.

    You said the difference between Kanter and Harrell is bigger than Trent v Caruso.

    I think that's pretty idiotic and you didn't back that up at all.

    It won’t help much trust me. He was looking terrible before he got injured

    Did you back it up?

    Player Set #1

    Player Set #2
    upload_2021-2-26_22-35-52.png

    Player set #1, one of the players is better in all six categories.

    Player set 2, one player is better in 4 of the 6.

    Caruso always does things to help his team win, timely steals, timely assists, take a charge, grab a rebound, make a clutch shot.

    As I said, one statistic, W/S, doesn't negate all the rest.

    And again, you're changing the argument. It wouldn't matter if one player has a better advanced stat than the rest, that wasn't your argument.

    You would take the difference between one set and compare it to the other. Not one stat of one player vs 3.

    I'm trying to help you make your argument better.

    Anyways, I stand by that LeBron would take the Blazers roster on the floor tonight over his. And, it's not even close.

    Goodnight.

    We would be a better team if he was our backup point guard.

    Appreciate your help... always good to debate and hash things out, even if we don't agree.

    I think we would both agree that having root for the a roster made up the Lakers players minus LeBron & AD, or the Blazers players minus CJ, Nurk, Collins, and Giles would be painful!

    A fan base overrating their bench players? Nearly impossible for me to imagine!

    Two possession this game he pushes the ball solo on a 1v5 situation and takes a contested fadeaway midranger before some of his teammates are even over halfcourt.

    This happens every game.
