Two different players. ESPN always undervalues RAP players. Big City players always get all the attention and hype. Look all the hype medoicre players like Shumpert and Butler get. Derozan is better overall player than Butler. If we offfered Derozan for Butler, Chicago would welcome the trade. If Chicago offered Butler to Toronto, Masai would balk at the trade unless a first round pick or two was offered.

No doubt Derozan is more talented and has a higher ceiling, but neither guy will ever be the alpha on a good team, so it comes down to who would you rather have as the #3 or #4 guy on your team, I'd take Butler because he's a better defender and spot-up shooter.

Moremilk. He wasn't 'nothing'. He didn't have 'no shot, no dribble, no defense, no anything'. Fans such as myself saw talent in him and potential. He didn't just turn from garbage to something. It is more likely that perhaps you just aren't that adept at recognizing basketball skill and talent. You need it to fully blossom before you know what you're looking at it.
But PPG is king and he has a better PPG than all those guys, therefore he is top 15 and they are not.

PPG as the sole measuring stick of a scorer - seriously flawed. Therefore spg or bpg should be the sole measuring stick of a defender. Hell, apg should be the sole measuring stick of a PG- Jose was top 5 and top 10 in apg, therefore- by that logic Jose was a top 5 or top 10 pg, passer and/or playmaker in the league. Why did we get rid of such all star and franchise backcourt of Jose and DD - what couldve been
