First of all, anybody know how Brandon's doing?
Anyways, LaMarcus's PER recently jumped to 23.59! That's near Dwight Howard production, so here comes the quesion. Which player do you think is more valuable? The two are pretty hard to compare, one being a big man and the other being a guard, but who would you rather builld a team around?
The 08-09 Brandon was producing 23 points on 48 percent shooting in 37 minutes. He made 82 percent of his FT and had both 5 assists and rebounds a game. 2 TO, 1 steal, and 38 percent from downtown to finish off all the stats.
LA is averagin 23 points on 49 percent shooting in 38 minutes. He makes 78 percent of his free throws and has 9 rebounds a game. 1 block and 3 assists, with the same number of TO and steals.
The stats are similair, so which one is more valuable? LA is a big man, which pretty much is an advantage itself in a league of guards. He's fairly smart with the ball, and plays defense. He can be a leader, but is nothing of what Brandon was. Brandon was a little smarter with the ball, and had those clutch moments.
I actually didn't watch the Blazers as much in 08 as I do now, so what do you guys think? If you could have either, who would you build your eam around? (NOT NECESSARILY THE CURRENT TEAM)
