It's pretty wide open i feel, I think in no order Wade, Kobe, McGrady, Lebron Durant and Granger are going to be the top 6, I like wade to take his 2nd straight
Kevin Durant will lead the League in Scoring next season
DWade.....he hast to score 30 a game....he has no help
Gatorheels was right, DWade barely has help, he needs to put up atleast 30 for the Heat to compete
Though, I hear Mike Beasley is gonna come strong this season, and he dominated every level of his career until the NBA, and he still hasnt reached his peak
or Wade. I am feeling Durant all the way scoring 30 plus. He was averaging like 26 last year in year 2 of his career. Scoring machine.
Look for Beasley to be around 20 and 10 this year. He is going to breakout.
Durant. Cleveland added Shaq, Lakers added Artest and Beasley will score much more this season. Durant's game continues to get better, and I think it will be his year.
Wade No Doubt With The Supporting Cast he has........making the play-offs will be tough....Yes!! i said they might not make the playoffs, but wade will show nothing but pure legendary performances.....well atleast i can say star performances, but don't be suprised if he Does historical
i think wade has a bigger chance because of lack of support outside of B-easy, while KD(although i expect him to score 28-30 next year) will have a good scorers around him in westbrook, harden and green. i also expect shaun and sefolosha scoring at least 7-8 ppg
completely argee maravich44
granger or wade
For the exact reasons that pointguardfun outlined. Also Wade gets a higher volume of shots because he starts more possessions with the ball in his hand than Durant. Westbrook is a fairly ball-dominant PG who needs the ball in his hand to create shots for himself and others by driving and dishing while Chalmers is more of a facilitator. However if Iverson lands in MIA that could change my opinion. While I think Durant will improve this offseason and be a better overall player, I'm not sure how much his PPG will increase. Along with shots going to Harden and other young players, he already shot a fairly high percentage last year (including 42% from 3) and I don't see those numbers improving all that much.
beasly will never avg 20 and 10 hes gonna be playin on the wing his hole career
Beasley will average 20 but he is going to play the three throughout his career. He is not big enough in there. He really does not play all that big, but dude can score no doubt.
But I don't think Miami makes the playoffs. Not making any moves and just hoping that the improvemant from Beasley and Chalmers holds off the other teams that are gonna improve ain't gonna cut it.
I would give Beasley maybe 18 and 7 next year. Not many guys are rebound that well when not constantly being right around the rim area and Beasley is not the exception. Either way, I think that is a good 2nd year for him.
As for the question, I would have to go with the consensus of Wade and Durant. Wade will probably score right about where he did last year. I think Durant might get up to 29 a game though. Lebron will probably be a close third. Wade just doesn't have enough help and the ball is always going to be in his hand. Durant is going to lose some shots to guys like Jeff Green, Harden and Westbrook. Not a lot of shots though, but just enough to keep him from passing wade. I look for Lebron to look for Shaq fairly often. I'm not sure why, but it's a feeling I have. Besides their team isn't athletic enough to really run, so I see a lot of half court sets which Shaq will benefit from.
Wade with Durant a close second.
Tracy is going to put up a Wade like year next season. He's going to come back strong as ever
Wade, but only if he stays healthy
Wade will be playing that old KOBE role where he will have to wheel his team to victory on several occasions through explosive scoring. He just doesn't have those go-to guys right now needed to take pressure off of him.
I personally don't like him but how can it not be Wade? He has total control of the offense. LeBron has Shaq. Durant has RW, Green and now Harden (which isn't a ton but it will take his shots down by 1 or 2). Tracy would need his jumping back. Granger isn't at Wades' level. Kobe won't need to shoot as much.
I think KObe with Artest,Pau,Bynum will avg jsut about 23ppg, I hope Beasley will show that 20ppg is not the limit, and Wade will have 27-28ppg, KD and LeBron are biggest contenders, KD will be 28ppg I think , and I don;t know about LeBron with Shaq on the court he will get more freedom and he could be 31-32ppg scorer , but there are still some questions about Shaq's touches, and my sleeper is Melo, in 2006-2007 he was just 22yrs old and he avg 28.9ppg, and in this Playoffs he looked like th same MELO, now he is 25 and it's time to show his ceiling now
i dont feel tmac will be in the top 5 as far as scoring this year. its gonna b really tough 4 him 2 basically return to his orlando magic days after the tough year he had last year
