I dont understand how you can say that I am comparing him with "top PFs in the league" when I listed 20 power forwards. Makes zero sense.
OK this season, so you are discounting the injured players? I guess I can buy that, however Amare Stoudamire is a better player than Lee. Period. Garnett, although old, is still playing at a high level. If we were talking strictly this season and not beyond, I still have Garnett over Lee when talking overall game. Saying Josh Smith's offensive game has dipped so you would rather have Lee than him is laughable. There isnt a single GM in the NBA would agree with that. DeMarcus Cousins plays power forward as much as David Lee does. He moves over at times too, but he is a power forward. Luis Scola, I can buy. They are similar players but I prefer Scola. I have no issue with you preferring Lee. Boozer's game has dipped? Why because he is averagint 2 points less per game than his career average?
All in all, I dont really buy many of your bolded points, if any.
Like I said, Josh Smith is one of my favorite players, but I stick to my opinion that I would rather have Lee than Smith. Sure, Smith is a much better defender, but Lee is a lot more consistent in the offensive side of the ball, and that includes his ability as a passer. What I don't like from Smith this season is that he's chucking a lot more shots from mid range to 3-pt range than he should. Explain why you prefer Scola if they're similar players. I actually give the slight defensive edge to David Lee. Scola flops and holds. I have a ton of friends that are Chicago Bulls fans and they absolutely are NOT Boozer fans. Talk about someone that isn't playing anywhere near the contract he received. He was unstoppable at Utah and his offensive game dipped.
The way I look at it, you just really dislike David Lee for reasons I can't even fathom. First you say he's trash, then you take it back and say it's his contract, then you say it's cuz he sucks on defense. Ok, we get it. You don't like David Lee
