    You know the Thunder better than me, so Iíll defer to you who has had the bigger impact. I just think Chet is a unicorn who is anchoring a top 5 defense and putting up absurd efficiency on offense.

    If Wemby switched places with Chet, Wemby would win this award unanimously.

    Chet started out incredibly well but the rigor of the full season after missing out on last year is starting to wear him down.

    Whats great is that his defensive impact is still there and he still to this day is not turnover prone.

    But Jalen Williams is taking a leap where I think as soon as next season people will be saying he is a top 20 player.

    Seems like he should be back in a month thankfully.

    Unbelievable how competently the Knicks have been run under Leon Rose. No panic trades (Lillard or Mitchell). Smart under the radar free agent moves (Brunson and Hartelstein). Trading for guys that fit the roster (OG). Empowering the head coach who also isnít a moron!!

    He would be perfect in starting lineup over Giddey - So I think they need to find a way to get him to another squad. Problem is his value stinks right now.

    Chop - Jalen Williams will be a top 15 starting next season. Look at his efficiency/volume. Out of this world. True three level scorer that can distribute and play high level defense.

    Ben Simmons with another back injury. I know Harden didn't win it with Philly so it isn't like a win trade for Philly they lost 2 1s and didn't win. But I bet Brooklyn would love a max contract slot now. 30+M would look good actually on the floor.

    We did indeed. Exciting game. I was technically rooting for the Hawks, but honestly I have no NBA allegiance, so I typically root for the players I like. Jason Tatum is legit and really fun to watch.
