Those 3s not shot could have increased our point total, those defensive stops could have helped us win. That really matters manWhy do we spend so much time talking about Royce when he's always hustling, always playing defense, always rebounding, and doesn't take bad shots?
Conley is the major elephant in the room. Next season, Conley is set to make almost 5X as much as Royce. We don't win or lose any series because of Royce and his contract. We lost this last series because Conley. We would have been better with Crowder, Korver, Grayson, Brandon Clarke, and more money we could have spent elsewhere.
We can debate Royce's value all day, but what does it really matter? He's not the issue.
