Definitely the best contract value on the team.

Remember when he sophomore slumped hard to start the season last year and most posters were indifferent to trading him? Hopefully this teaches us to have a little patience.

He is the most valuable player on the court a lot lately. You need a solid team to win in the NBA, so the firepower from our offensive guys important, but the defense and how he LEADS the team on defense is nothing short of amazing. All that room on offense when Z and BI are getting all the attention helping him improve his offensive game and those open 3's is just icing.

This is how I feel about Dyson. He is a lot younger. They are different players, but Herb came into the league much older. People need to realize he is very young. WE STACKED LEAGUE frickED.

Gotta eliminate those nasty "foot faults" but...his 3-pt shot just looks "different" this year. Seems like there's very few really bad misses.

Getting a bit deep in the weeds here...but his huge leap on stats such as eFG% and even more importantly...his TS%... are probably not noticed or appreciated by most folks...who mainly concentrate on his defense.

He's getting better at finishing at the hoop which leads to his FTr going up every year so far. He understands he should basically only shoot 3-pters & 3 footers...and I've said this before...but I STILL have NO idea what his ceiling is...on the offensive end of the court. The guy is even better than I thought he was gonna be...and I had him very highly rated...from the start.

I remember. He was hurt, and then his second half splits were much much better. Also, he had the full and unequivocal support of Willie from day 1 in the league. Day 1. No waiting.

Herb is shooting 40% from 3 over his last 40 games.

I know you know that will never happen. Two weeks ago posters were requesting Dyson start for CJ. Many of those same posters are now concussed after jumping so quickly off the Dyson bandwagon with his recent shooting struggles. It will NEVER change.

About a 1/4 through the season and his splits are 52/36/88.

Last 10 they are 54/41/88.
