All Parsons does better is create?
Yep. Leonard is a better rebounder. Tougher to quantify defense, but I think most would agree he is a better defender. Their shooting %s (basic and advanced) are roughly the same. Their USG rates are roughly the same. Parsons has double the AST %.
He is a good defender with a diverse offensive game.
Good is generous for Parsons. And how can you not say the same thing about Leonard?
No one even knew who Leonard was in tbe regular season.
Bull shite. The only one talking about his playoffs is you.
Look at his win shares
Parsons played in 20 more games than Leonard. Of course his Win Shares are higher. Look at WS/48. Leonard is 30% higher
If Leonard played in Philly he'd be Thaddeus Young with a 3 point shot.
Lulz. My turn to ask what games are you watching. And Parsons hasnt benefitted from playing in a system that fits him perfectly?
Parsons is the 2nd best player on his team and is asked to do way more.
2nd best player on an 8 seed v 3rd best player on a 2.
Again Parsons and Leonard have roughly the same USG rate, so way more is just not true.
Both guys are good players. I'd rather take Leonard's superior defense and size.
Considering you argued at the beginning of last season that Aminu was better than Parsons, you've had quite the shift on him. And I appreciate how you think and continue to think about these things.
