Doug McDermott (restricted): Mr. McBuckets has turned into a very good role player, staying excellent from three-point range while improving other parts of his game.
But the New Orleans Pelicans free agent also averaged 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds and 5.4 rebounds last season while shooting 3-pointers better than most guards. Even if Cousins takes until, say, late February to recover from the torn Achilles tendon he suffered in January, he should be back to his forceful self by the playoffs, giving Golden State's starting lineup a quintet of all-stars with which to pursue its third straight championship.

If Korea are to produce an unlikely result, they need to score goals and their best hope in that regard is the Tottenham forward.
