    Is John Collins at top 5 player in the East currently?

    I’d argue yes

    Not really an outrageous claim. Outside of the rosters in Giannis, Toronto, Philly, and Boston I'm not sure I would trade him for anyone in the East. Dude is legit as hell and should get more recognition.

    Trae Young and him are ridiculous together but doesn't fit into yall's Trae Young sucks narrative.

    Giannis
    Kawhi
    Kyrie
    Tatum
    Dipo
    Embiid
    Simmons
    Butler
    Kemba
    Beal

    Pick 6 from this list that John Collins is better than. And Trae Young does currently suck by every statistical measurement.

    And even though he’s hurt, if we’re talking about trade value, Porzingis > Collins.

    Apologies to the unicorn, forgot about him with the injury. Blake Griffin should probably go on this list too

    Shouldn't a team with a good point guard and a top 5 player in the conference be better than 11-24

    ok top 10. My point was he's getting zero recognition for making the worst team in the NBA into a team that keeps winning too god damn much.

    Man puts up 20/10 almost nightly on over 50% shooting

    Collins started the season injured...Hawks are now winning in what is supposed to be a tank season.

    I'd trade Baze and Lin immediately if the goal is to tank.

    No, he’s not better than any of the 10 listed and that list does not include KP and Blake Griffin.

    and arguably the worst defender in the league.

    He has had a good week though so all of a sudden he's ridiculous.

    Think we’ve gone from top 3 to top 5 to top 10 and I’d venture to guess top 25 might be a stretch.

    Nice to have some Monday mid-day basketball. Turner with a goaltending called a block and finishes the half with a buzzer beater three.

    On a fantasy note, ecstatic to have completed a trade for Kawhi. Hell yes.

    Just leaving the warriors/sun's game. Quietest arena I've ever been to. Could hear the ball dribble. Was kinda eerie.

    I love John Collins But LMFAO at him being a top 5 player in the east.


    Is he a 4 or a 5 on a good team?


    He should realistically be the 4th best player on a playoff team


    And fuck my ass and life that we traded Luka for a midget who will get pick and rolled in any meaningful game we ever play.


    I used to think Marvin Williams over Chris Paul would be the pick I regret most. Fuck me for having another

    Vucevic is also better at virtually every statistical category and his team has a better record.

    I mean its fine to be high on your own players and overrate them cause I do that too but don't go full retard.
