    I don't really have a problem if he's in your top 25.

    As for Siakam/Bosh. This version of Siakam is not a better player than prime CB4. He still has lots of time to grow sure, but can he ever be as good as CB4? i'm not sure.

    I'd say he's basically already in the Top-25 conversation. I know I'd be hard pressed to name 25 other players I'd take over him.
    In terms of overall contributions, Siakam was 28th in the league in Fantasy Rankings ... so that's a thing.

    And prime-Bosh wasn't close to the defender that Pascal has turned into, and he still has lots of time to grow.

    I'll wait until next season to see if Pascal improves further before I throw his name around top 10, but he definitely has the potential.

    Top 10 is stretching it. Chris Bosh in his prime was a lot better player than Siakam and he was never in the top 10 conversation.

    Best case scenario is top 25.

    I love what Siakam is doing and he is truly deserving of any accolades and awards (MIP) he is receiving, BUT let's maybe take a pause before he is declared a superstar or the next MVP...Not picking on you, Truth Teller, it's just that Pascal does have areas of his game that need improving for him to reach the next level. A reliable mid-range jump shot and playmaking for others that don't result in turnovers are the ones that come to mind. His story is compelling, his progress is amazing and the Raptors are fortunate to have him as a starter alongside Kawhi, Kyle, Marc and Danny. Without him, this team would not be in it's current position. Just keeping it real...
    i dont think anyone is legit calling him a superstar RIGHT NOW, but there is such a thing as superstars with weaknesses. harden. steph. dwayne wade in his prime. giannis. etc etc. basically anyone besides prime lebron.

    Don't have to go back that far. People were talking about Pascal for Bradley Beal, just before the all-star break. That said, I would still (grudgingly) include Pascal in a trade for Anthony Davis.
    no thanks. i'm over anthony davis. dude cant even play a full season ever. and now that siakam can actually hit 3 pointers, i dont think i'd even trade them straight up.

    In Bucks - Piston game the announcer mentioned that Casey told him that Thon Maker reminds him of a young Pascal Siakam.

    So.. should we go through the 2018 Offseason thread and highlight posters that were including Pascal in various trades?

    I think the common sentiment was that a deal for Kawhi had to include Demar, Pascal, and OG at the very least. That just speaks to Masai's savviness.

    If your going that far back go check somewhere in one of the preseason thread. I said siakam was going to have a breakout year sometime in the early season.
