We’re always excited about GP. We always imagine him as a lockdown defender.
In my mind, every year, the enthusiasm dissipates quite quickly and almost nobody runs him after a few weeks.
Last year, with his 3pt ratings higher, I personally never shot well with him. Not even from Catch and Shoot. Unless they changed his shot, I think off the dribble is basically out of the question.
They buffed his Post Control and Fade for this year and that is intriguing. But if he is matched up against a Magic or even an Oscar, or Pip or Iguodala, etc., then working post game is not a good proposition.
He’s 4" taller than CP3 but I think still too short/small to guard guys like Giannis, Hedo, Magic in a way that is very substantially different from a GO CP3, who also has all the Def badges at HoF. Hedo or AK will still shoot right over GP. Giannis will still bully him to the rim. Magic can still abuse GP in the post. Low 70s LPDIQ doesn’t cut it.
I could be wrong and hope I am. I would like to swap out of Oscar to GP as my bench PG, behind Magic.
