ESPN did a piece last week debating the NBA small forwards by answering various questions. One of them being the league’s most overrated SF. And the response from all of the writers were unanimous, Rudy Gay. Do you agree or disagree?
You guys like statistics right? Well RR member DanH posted a doozy of a statistical analysis on our forums using a stat mostly used in the NHL circles called WOWYs (With or Without You’s) and how it might apply to our beloved Raptors. Have a read.
I think the 2007 Raptor team's biggest problem was a lack of secondary scoring option. We had Bosh (who was neutralized by Mikey freakin' Moore), and everyone else. Was any team scared of Calderon or Parker dropping 25? Definitely not.
This year, we've got 2 legit scorers in Lowry and DeRozan, and even Salmons and Vasquez have the ability to turn a broken play into 2 points. I'm not suggesting this current team are worldbeaters, but their offense isn't as one-dimensional as the 2007 team, without even saying anything about the improved defense.
