Booker is overrated by a few points. He is garbage at defense and can't lead a team to victory. Heck even Khris Middleton is better than him. LeBron should be a bit lower though. He's getting old and isn't the best in the league anymore. Kawhi and KD > LBJ now.

His playmaking and shooting more than makes up for a mediocre D. Defense is a team game though, it's hard to pin the problem to a specific player. I think it should be KD > LBJ > Kawhi for now. Kawhi still has room to improve on in the playmaking department. He can certainly lead a team to a top record anyhow.

He is one of the worst defensive guards in basketball, and he sucks at passing and rebounding. Not to talk about inefficient scoring as well. Definitely overrated because of his 70 point game.

Booker averaged 25/4/4 44/39/84 over the last 44 games. That is very good efficiency as the #1 option. He does not suck at passing watch some games just cause he doesn't have assist numbers doesn't mean he isn't a good passer. Manu is one of the best passers ever and his career high is 4.9 ast. Booker is the new MJ in the making.

He's not a bad player don't get me wrong. But he's way overrated. Zach Lavine is just an 80 and they're equal players imo. Booker is 83 max with high potential.

Whatever you say. Just watch when Booker gets 27+ ppg this year on 45/37/86 shooting. That's better than Kobe. And he'll lead Suns to the playoffs.

What's with your obsession with Devin? He's not an 85/86 when D'Lo is only 80. Any team with Devin as a #1 option will never sniff the playoffs.

Lmao at Lamarcus Aldridge at 85 still. He's sub 80 now after he left Portland.
Thanks for reading. Thanks for posting.
