Cleveland down 1 with 20 sconds to go, and have trapped Lavine along the sideline. They don't try to steal, or foul him, and let him slither away for a layup.

For a team that wants to shoot 70 3s, they've never had a really good shooter on their roster the last 5 years.

They keep cycling through the Daniel House/Ariza types, but they'll never get them over the hump.

Why? Is it incorrect?

If Booker averages more points and assists and shoots at 50% and will likely miss, excuse me for failing to get excited for LaVine.
I'll start with the obvious things.

Booker = West
LaVine = East

Booker has a legitimate playmaking PG in Rubio to play with, big men in Ayton/Baynes/Saric to P'n'R/P'n'P with, wings like Oubre Jr./Bridges and a legitimate coach in Monty Williams.

LaVine occasionally has Lauri and is coached by Jim Boylen.

Booker only averages 1.6 more points and 2 more assists despite having so much more around him than LaVine.

LaVine has a higher usage and a negative rating.

The personnel arguments were Booker’s for the last 3 seasons. You don’t get in on those grounds.

He might scrape in which would be great for Chicago but he’s far from a lock.
