Draymond Green 7.4 ppg 7.3 rpg 6.9 apg 1.4 spg 1.1 bpg 44.5% FG 28.5% 3-FG
Green is the heart and soul of this Warriors team. He provides the energy and the hustle needed for them to succeed. With Kevin Durant gone now and Klay Thompson out with the injury, the Warriors will need Green to provide a bit more offensively and in the scoring department to get things moving in San Francisco.
Andre Drummond 17.3 ppg 15.6 rpg 1.4 apg 1.7 spg 1.7 bpg 53.3% FG
Drummond is one of the most ferocious rebounders in the league as he’s led the NBA in that category the last few years. He’s a walking double-double and he’s a defensive presence using his quick hands for steals in the passing lanes as well as having good timing for blocking shots. The only real criticism is his motor which was questioned in the playoffs by former Piston great Chauncey Billups.
Myles Turner 13.3 ppg 7.2 rpg 1.6 apg 2.7 bpg 48.7% FG 38.8% 3-FG
A terrific shot blocker as he led the league in blocks this past season. He just seems to have great defensive instincts and great timing on that end of the floor. On offense, he uses his athleticism to finish around the basket and he can capably hit a 3-ball. He’s a very good player for this Pacers team.
Clint Capela 16.6 ppg 12.7 rpg 1.4 apg 1.5 bpg 64.8% FG
Capela is the perfect big man for this offense. He benefits from playing with James Harden finding him off lobs and the pick-and-roll. He’s very good defensively as he has good timing to block shots and he’s good positionally as well. He’ll play well with both Harden and Russell Westbrook this season. His numbers could go higher.
