Re: Post draft reactions

He's been a foul drawing machine at every level he's played at so far, and that's typically the mark of a dangerous scorer at the NBA level what difference is there between sexton and say jerryd bayless? both 1 year in school, drew fouls at high rates, similar high scoring for freshman, similar ass...

Re: BPM and VORP

Stockton almost 3 times Nash's BPM for career regular season. Twice the career VORP. Higher BPM than Nash's best season 9 times. 60% better career playoff BPM. Neither a good defender in regular season if this is indeed what BPM/VORP says, that stockton was not a good defender in the regular season...

Re: BPM and VORP

Stockton's assists were not as high value--in other words, his passes did not create the high value shots to the same level Nash did. Nash's skill created very high value shots for the players he passed to. a nonsensical statement unsupported by facts... over the 7 year stretches mentioned above bo...

Re: BPM and VORP

Referring to the way they get their stats. Stockton for the most part got his as part of the system (where he winds up deserving ~50% of the credit for an assist), while Nash more often created opportunities from nothing (deserving closer to 100% of the credit for an assist) anyone care to translat...

Re: BPM and VORP

Ehh, Nash's offense was more high leverage than Stockton's, very very hard to pick up on in stats. howso? if it can't be picked up by stats, just what are you referring to?... over the long 7 year stretch of 0405-1011 nash (ages 30-36) and the suns had the league's top rate of offensive efficiency ...

Re: BPM and VORP

Steve Nash is an interesting subject. His offense was spectacular... was john stockton's offense just as spectacular ? giving nash the benefit of the doubt, and looking only at his seasons of 2000+ minutes played (11 of them, ages 26-36), compared to stockton ages 26-36: - overall they shot similar...

Re: Trivia

Those links bring us to videos of a few games in which Westbrook appears to grab rebounds in front of teammates. Sometimes he's just quicker to the ball, and sometimes , they just let him get it. that'd be alot of times... in the history of the nba (since 1973-74 when rebounds have been differentia...
