If we want to win KP should score 40+ on regular basis

So he has to be the greatest scorer that ever lived in order for us to win?

I think he is averaging over 30pts a game. His scoring is not the issue. We need Thrjr and our bench to step
Playoffs or bust

Yes, in first half he gets 20+ points with no problems, he just have to do the same in the second half

The problem is he is not very active in a second half

KP needs less minutes.
He's not built like a 6-8 or smaller superstar.
He's more like a giant like Yao, Ralph Sampson or like that.
While more athletic than Yao/Ralph, he is still very likely to get injured or gassed if you play him as many minutes as Horny has.

32 minutes should be his ceiling. We aren't winning these games anyway, and we are probably better off this season being a 20 win team than a 30 win team. Draft position. So why risk KP going all out?

If we can get 22 points in a 20 win season from KP in 30-32 minutes, I rather have that, than a 30 win season where KP averages 30 points in 37 minutes. It's not like they are going to win a championship or even make the playoffs this way. Think longterm. Like Philly is with Embiid.

Dolan won't agree with you 😀
