And finally, after much reflection, the 2019-20 hierarchy:
1) Jayson Tatum
2) Kemba Walker
3) Jaylen Brown
4) Gordon Hayward
I spent way too much time deciding if Kemba or Jaylen is the true second option and here’s why I put Kemba at #2: over half of Jaylen’s offense comes on spot-ups and in transition. Almost 49% of Kemba’s offense comes in the pick-and-roll. Kemba dictates the offense far more, and often calls his own number on pull-ups and step backs.
Finally, Kemba as the second option is a perfect fit.
