Jaylen is already better than Ricky Davis ever was. Davis might have had better numbers, but Jaylen already contributes more to wins.
What I love about Jaylen is how quietly he produces. When Tatum puts up 20 in a playoff game, everybody lost their mind, but when Jaylen does on the same efficiency, he goes largely unnoticed.
He was the 2nd leading scorer on a conference final team. He defended anyone from JJ Reddick to Lebron James with success. He shoots 40% from three, but everyone says that is inflated. He places 9th in Defensive MVP voting, but few talk about how the Cs became a top 5 defense when he replaced Bradley in the starting lineup. He doesn't need the ball to score his points, but everyone questions his play-making abilities. He abuses smaller players in the post, but everyone questions his handles. He pushes the tempo to get us easy buckets, but everyone is complaining about his free throw percentage.
Irving, Hayward, and Horford will score points this year, but they will largely ride into the playoffs on teh backs of Rozier, Brown, and Tatum. The older guys will facilitate for the younger guys, and the younger guys will wingames with energy and aggression.
