Gotta have elite 2 way wings and these 2 are the best available.
@ronmexico is up
Karl Anthony Towns
I am pairing two elite bigs up together. I wanted George or Butler here and have a few other guards I like but none of them are as good as KAT.
This year he is putting up 26.5 ppg, shooting 41% from 3, 4.4 assists per game, and 10.8 rebounds per game.

I just can’t get over how bad they are defensively with him on the court.
It hasnt been as bad this year and his defensive stats are okay. But his offense is probably one of the most elite in the NBA from the big position. Thats why pairing him with a high energy big who plays good defense is a good combo. Plus they both can space the floor very well and pass.
Actually I looked his off court defense for the team isnt great. But his offense is beyond elite that his overall on/off court effect is huge. His team is -7 net with him on the court. But a whopping -38.5 with him off. Thats just a really bad team around him.
I thought I saw the stats show he wolves are one of the worst defensive ineups with him in the lineup.
The story about his mom was ****ing sad.

Like 12 points per 100 worse with him on the court or something like that. I consider him the kyrie of bigs.
I edited my post above. They are bad. But the team is stupidly bad with him off the court. His impact is a huge positive for the team even if the team is worse on defense with him. But I think there are many factors to that. The fact is he greatly improves his team when he steps on the court.

That is really sad. Both of his parents have it and his mom is in a medically induced coma.
@ONE LOVE is OTC
Wow, that is really early for him. Especially for next year. But he has had a solid year.
Yeah, like I posted above his team is a little worse defensively but massively better offensively so his impact is a huge positive. He would be more of a Harden of bigs if you are going that route. But ill take an Irving type big that is 7'. It would be very interesting to watch him play with a team that is good and winning. I think his defense would step up. He also rebounds well which is important for defense as well.
Definitely not. He was in the MVP conversation before the season was suspended. He’s the #1 clutch player in the league this year and he’s lead the Thunder into the playoff race. He’s still super underrated.
You picked him a little bit earlier than I would have but it's a great pick.
Lol, at anyone putting him in the MVP conversation this year. Maybe as a nice story MVP mention at #15 or something. He has had a solid year though. He is playing above his level right now but I dont think that will last into next year. He will come back down and will be pretty old next year.
I think people just underestimated the Thunder team. I think the players they traded away arent that great and they brought in two pretty good guys from the Clippers.
