Blazer Backup or a D-Leaguer?

submitted 4 years ago by in Stats

 

Inspired by a comment earlier today (shout out Norsk), I thought I'd see if we could improve our rotation by replacing our backups wholesale with D-Leaguers. To make it more fun, I made a game of it. 

 

The Rules

- Current D-League players only

- None who are under contract with another NBA team (ie guys like Lamb, Donatas etc)

- I'll only compare NBA numbers so all options will have NBA experience

- Numbers will be per 36 or advanced to avoid being too unfair (we all know per 36 numbers are gospel, anyway)

 - I'll use career numbers to avoid SSS issues (where possible)

- The options will be provided as usual when you don't want people to know who you're talking about - Player A, B, C etc (you'll know some of the guys who are ours by their hideous stat lines, but play along just for fun)

- Pick the one player you want at each position

- Polls closed

- I'll tally up the votes and see whether the D-Leaguers or Backups win!
