    When it comes to sports, 538 is garbage... there isn't enough context to their numbers or rigor to their analysis. After a couple of months last year, they declared:

    "Forget The Next LeBron, Andrew Wiggins May Not Be The Next James Posey"

    Lol.
    fivethirtyeight is owned by ESPN.

    I am surprised that Wiggins does not project to greater wins above replacement on this fivethirtyeight comparison data base. As far as defensive abilities being interpreted through +/- stats used in this chart, Wiggins rates as a very poor defender.

    Fellow 2nd year player Elfrid Payton projects out much higher overall in this case than Wiggins.

    Thought rookies always under perform then make a significant jump years 2-3 sometimes 4. Even Lebron didn't project great just based on numbers rookie year

    It's certainly time in the preseason for a real offence to start making it's appearance. I really want to get an idea of how Carroll is going to be used, and hope to see how his game affects JV's game. Looking at the starters, Casey actually will have quite a balancing act if he wants to extract the maximum from each guy.

    I think the second unit is already a good fit. Looking forward to the game.

    Will be fun to see Wiggins play.

    Here's hoping for a little offence to be put in.

    First game of a home and home series with a young squad loaded with potential and athleticism. Should be really fun!
