Mike Conley would be among the great PG's ever and way above Stockton's best year. And that beast Jeff Adrien, if his holds up he would be ahead of Dr. J on the all-time list. Markieff Morris give him seven more years at his current pace and he's a lock for top ten ever.
You would never confuse current current Isiah Thomas with the old school Piston one, because Old School would have never gotten close to the PER numbers of this current guy.
Sorry, but this is a bunch of apologist nonsense.
The kid isn't slagging off a little, he's below Kendrick ****ing Perkins on PER. He's been awful.
