5)Teague May Be in Decline

Although Teague represented the Eastern Conference in the NBA All-Star Game last season, his numbers and overall production have taken a small step back this year.

After averaging nearly 16 points and seven assists per game in 2014-15, Teague has lost minutes to Dennis Schroder and is down to 15.1 points and 5.5 assists per contest this season, while seeing a three percent drop in field goal percentage. Moreover, his defensive rating has ballooned from 99.9 a year ago to 103.1 in 2015-16.

Is this a huge drop-off? Not at all, but one can’t help but wonder if these statistics mark the beginning of a downward trend as Teague creeps ever closer to 30 years of age.
