    All-Star, 2nd team All-NBA numbers. I think Minny would be happy with that, and if they aren't I know the Lakers would.

    He averages 8.8rpg at 23 minutes per game ALL year.

    He averages over 10rpg for a few weeks now.

    At his peak he will definately average AT LEAST 12rpg.

    Yeah almost right on I think his BPG will be like at 1.2 just a little over one.
    To analysis the trade Mayo For Love. Love could be like a poor man's Tim Duncan in his prime, very fundamentally sound, boring to watch and will give you 20 and 10+ every night. Mayo has the chance to be the best SG in the League when Kobe retires/looses all his athletism, I think lilojmayo said he was #5 Ranked SG in Fantasy already as a rookie.
    This goes down to the simple question would you rather have a poor man's Tim Duncan, or a poor man's Kobe Bryant. Kobe will put more butts in sits, more commericials endorsements, but Duncan will give you more wins.

    Not sure I like the idea of prime Kevin Love = poor mans Tim Duncan, seems to me their games are too different, Kevin Love unlike Tim Duncan is undersized and not a very good defender.

    I think Zach Randolph (without the attitude) or Elton Brand might be closer to what prime Kevin Love will be.

    I have watched very little of him in the NBA but a lot at ucla and I will say this about the guy. He is a GREAT outlet passer. He puts the rock right in guys hands halfway down the court insanely fast. It is uncanny.

    I just don't see him keeping up a 14 rebound pace over an entire season. Now that I think of it maybe 11-12. But I don't see 14. His rebounds will also go down some when Al gets back, Al is averaging 11 boards per.
    Howard is right around 6'9", no taller than that.

    he can lead the league in rebounding one day. already he is third in the nba in rebounds/48 minutes. Averaged 12.6/10.0 on 54% fg 78% ft in january in only 24 minutes per game and is averaging 13.0/10.6 on 53% fg and 86% free throws in february. dude is legit and can be an all-star.

    He is getting no love because he's white.

    At his best he could be a 20-10 player.

    Durrant is not 6'7. He's pushing a legit 6'10 these days. Look at him standing beside green sometime (who is 6'8-6'9).

    I always thought that...but the last few games I've seen him I've wondered if he has grown. Bosh is pushing a barefoot 6'11+ and he doesn't seem to have much height on Dwight this year, where he did early in there careers. It could just be my imagination though.

    I don't think he'll ever be a 20 point scorer due to his inability to get mismatches, but he is already one of the best rebounders in the NBA, and I think that will always be his calling card. I could see him averaging 14/11, maybe even 16/11 in his prime. Unless he plays on a really high tempo team.

    I know fans of a player hate it when you project numbers that are only slightly higher than their current numbers, but the numbers I just posted are great borderline all-star stats. I think he'll be the type of guy who sneaks into an all-star game or two during years like the this one with a few injury replacements.

    And one last point, I'm not sure that I see him and Jefferson as an ideal combo. Eventually they'll probably have to trade one of them for somebody who's more mobile. But until they're trying to contend it probably doesn't matter and they should just keep a roster of talented players.
