Wow that's really surprising. Anyone close?

Noah?
M. Gasol?
Cousins?

Edit: David Lee or Lamarcus Aldridge COULD get there... They would need to go on sick runs to do it tho

Kevin love will be close. Isn't he 18/15 right now?

Cousins is 17/10

Would be a beast if he got his mind right

I can only think of two so far. Dwight and KLove. Who are the other solid big men?

Cousins and Griffin are somewhat close

Kevin love will be close. Isn't he 18/15 right now?

nah he said he is not returning this season

Lol has Noah ever even scored more Than 20 points in a game?

Hahaha good point.

As crazy as it is to look at... David lee has the best shot...

Currently averaging 18.5/11

not overly surprising when you consider only 10 players are averaging over 20 ppg


only 1 of which is a big (Aldridge) who grabs 9 boards a game.


other then that Lebron's 8.1 and KD's 7.9 are the only ones remotely close.


then if you're looking at assists for 20-10.... no one is really even close... Westbrook and Parker with 7.6 are the highest.

yeah, he will have to go on a crazy scoring tear that or Aldridge go on a rebounding rampage

I am surprised Blake Griffin kinda regressed from his rookie year

He put up 22 and 12. I remember people saying that CP3 would boost him up to 25+ points per game (same effect Nash had on Stat in Phoenix)

but it never happened

Huh. Just looked that one up for fun and it looks like Kevin Johnson and CP3 are the only players to do that in the last 23 years.

He hasn't really regressed per se.... he's just playing less minutes and taking less shots now.

ya guys like Rondo and Nash never get enough PPG to get it.


very tough to be that consistent of a scorer and passer. Points and rebounds are much more common and realistic.

Brook Lopez
Marc Gasol
Dwight Howard
Joakim Noah
Al Horford
Lamarcus Aldridge
Zach Randolph
Roy Hibbert
Serge Ibaka
Tyson Chandler
David Lee
Demarcus Cousins
Pekovic
Vucevic


Still plently of quality, 20/10 potential big guys in the league. Philosophy has just changed in the nba. These teams don't pound the ball down low like they should. Any one of these guys playing in the 80's would be a BEAST!

Yes he has actually. Against the Pistons at the end of last year he scored 30 points and had 23 rebounds.

Deron Williams did it in 2010-2011

David Lee just went through that slump, otherwise he was there.

20 pts/10 asts is more impressive IMO, almost never happens. CP3 and Jrue are pretty close this year.

i don't think it's fair at all to call that regressing, the team as a whole is playing a much different game with a lot more distributing and they don't have to rely on blake doing it all

bench is a whole lot stronger so he's not playing as many minutes, he's not posting up every play, etc
