Though we have plenty of vets, this is a team that, on paper, should get better and better as Svi, Devonte, Carlton and Lagerald grow into their roles. Vick may have the most trouble contributing because of the logjam at the guard position, but I think that these four guys could be the difference makers this year.

You know that Perry and Frank will bring it every game. You know what Jamari will bring, and perhaps Wayne is returning to his Korean form.

The four young guys may very well define whether this is a special season or not.

If Lagerald is a good defensive player we will need him a lot.

Graham should not be ranked ahead of Mason. I agree Graham played a great game, but Mason's offensive numbers are about twice as good. Mason shot a better percentage, had 78% more points (16 vs 9), more than double the assists (7 v 3) and zero turnovers. Mason also had fewer fouls (1 v 3), but still got to the free throw line 9 times compared to 2 times for Graham. Mason was clearly twice as good as Graham on offense.

You could argue Graham had a better defensive night, but he only got 1 more steal than Mason (3 v 2); and Mason had more than double Graham's rebounds (5 v 2). When Mason was twice as good on offense, the only way you could argue Graham had a better night is by claiming Graham was more than twice as good as Mason on defense. I think Graham was better than Mason on defense, but not even close to being more than twice as good.

If they would have only played Volleyball plus DeVonte has a bigger wing span. :)

Good rankings, I'd switch Frank and Devonte though. I seem to remember Frank having 2-3 steals as well.

Ryan Zimmerman 3 years, 11 months ago

How do you not switch Mickelson and Vick:)?

Dear Hunter,

There is no way to a double/double using fouls. It is okay though because the perimeter was funneling them to you.
