Offensively, of course Hendo is much better than Thabo and Shumpert. But, I never said anything comparing that. I said Hendo fits the mold (role player) of a Thabo/Shumpert on a contending team, i.e. OKC, Lakers, Miami, NYK, etc. Some who brings defensive for a very good team and doesnt have to score 15 PPG. On one of those team, Hendo would probably be averaging at best 10-12 PPG. As a 6th man, he would be much better like a Lou Williams or Manu situation. And no I'm not comparing Hendo to any of them. Im comparing the "situation".
And who really know what position Wiggins, Parker, Smart, or Harrison will play in the pro. Wiggins has the ability to play the '2' like a Tmac. Parker ideally is a '3/4'. Many draft experts have wondered if Smart would be a PG or SG in the pro. If you look at his game, he is so similar to Dwade and what he brings to the table; post game, etc. Harrison is the legitimate true PG at this point.
Unless Parker had a down year at Duke as bad as what Shabazz had at UCLA last season, there's possibly no way "MJ", not Cho would trade back and not take Parker.
He's a very good 2 guard with one of the best mid range shots in the NBA. He can create off the dribble, plays great defense and is a team player. If his 3pt shot gets more reliable then he's a top 10 NBA SG, there's not that many good ones left in the NBA. His situation is in no way shape or form anything close to Thabo, Shumpert, Manu or Williams. He's better then those players (Manu used to be really good), he's not a 6th man. Your way undervaluing his play and skill set. Even with the slow start he was still 11th in scoring among 2 guards and was top ten in most of the other stats. If you go off his second half, he was playing like a top 5 NBA SG with out getting the same amount of shots.
He averaged 3-5 shots fewer per game then the guys in the top 10 while averaging 2 points less per game (Minus Bryant, Harden, Wade) This is counting his first half.
If you go off his post All-Star game stats, he was 6th in scoring (with 2 less shots per game), 6th in FG%, 4th in overall scoring, 12th in rebounds, 12th in assists, 21st in steals, 7th in blocks,
Overall for the season, he shot better from the Field compared to J.R Smith, Eric Gordan, Klay Thompson, Derozen, Crawford, Joe Johnson.
Hendo and his situation haven't compared to anyone you've mentioned yet. Keep trying...if you like.
