Two questions (if anyone is still reading this). One, what is RPM good for? Two, is Hayward really the jazz’z best player. He can fill up the box score but I don’t think the jazz play much worse with him off the floor. I would say he is the player that most consistantly puts numbers in the box score but that Burks or Favors is the best player. If best player means the one most positively affects games.

I think haywards agent screwed him. By asking for all that money it forced hayward to try to be a player he is not: a first option, which is a guy who scores efficiently off the dribble.If they had just asked for $10 million a year, Hayward would have just been the player he is, not taken all those bad shots off the dribble, maybe worked on a post up game. I don’t know…
