    The thing is, Lowry has rebelled against every coach he's ever played for, including Casey. Remember when Casey tried to get Lowry to play more under control, like Jose, with disastrous results? ...

    LOL. You totally nailed that. The criteria that actually does seem to separate elite vs. non-elite scorers is:

    ORTG > 110
    USG% > 25
    MPG > 30

    I've been using that for years and it always...

    People thought Steph Curry would always be a weak defender in the NBA (like Steve Nash), but here's an excellent article providing insight on how he became great. Consider how explosive PGs are...

    Appreciate the feedback. At first glance I thought the way you’re suggesting is the correct way to normalize. So, I checked both methods with an extreme example and now I’m back to thinking the...

    Good point, however, I'd counter that you are also allowing the opposing defense to rest, which is worse since they can now go harder at the guys who weren't resting (i.e. your ISO guards). Plus,...

    Just a theory, but IMO, the offense and defense are intricately linked in a way that can never be measured statistically. Energy & effort.

    High usage ISO offence requires high energy output...

    A trade centered around Towns + Hardaway Jr. + filler for Lowry + Ross. Gives us the ability to trade DD if Hardaway develops (and he hates Melo, apparently).

    Assuming JV is still a piece we're building around, then I think Lowry has to be traded this off-season, for a number of reasons:

    1) Age. Lowry's skills will be declining when JV is peaking.

    In other words...... #FireCasey. lol.

    Excellent point, though. Unlike those 2 examples I cited... we DO have options, but choose not to use them. If we got other guys more involved at first...

    I agree for the most part, but in some cases the high usage superstar is necessary. For example, the Dirk-Tyson Chandler pairing was a match made in heaven from a USG/ORTG standpoint, because...

    I'd have to guess that the main reason is for the high ORTG is that the players are willing to make the bad defense for good offense tradeoff. I would guess that player's are giving up on Casey's...

    A few reasons, perhaps:

    1) The ORTG is inflated against bad teams, and good teams are willing to get us into a high scoring game, knowing they can outscore our bottom 5 defense when it counts.
    ...
  14. Depends. If you're high usage and scoring at >...

    Depends. If you're high usage and scoring at > 110 ORTG then defenses will absolutely focus more attention on you. If you're high usage at < 100 ORTG, then, as you said, the opposing defence might...
  15. Yes it would; however, the average player's ORTG...

    Yes it would; however, the average player's ORTG would plummet quickly below 105 ORTG when their USG% increases significantly above 20% (say 25%). As your USG% approaches above 25%, it becomes clear...
  16. Agreed. My definition of elite scorer is very...

    Agreed. My definition of elite scorer is very simple: > 25% USG + > 110 ORTG + > 30MPG. DD was last year, and isn't this year. Run that filter on BBREF and you will almost always get the guys...

    111 @ 29.2 is phenomenal. Basically, superstar level. I would hazard a guess that the whole team DRTG in March is skewed by Vasquez starting, but DD's offense is far exceeding his defense.

    BTW,...

    Shhhhhhh. That's the secret offense Casey's been hiding for the playoffs. Step back 27 footers............... every possession. Unguardable. lol.

    Simple analogy: I'd rather see my 1 and a half year old try to walk and repeatedly fall, rather than get incredibly great at crawling fast. That's a bad habit that needs to be broken. So, people...

    Here's the rub: our coaching staff thinks they ARE good shots. For real.

    I actually think DD can be great under another coach/system. I can't recall any offensive system in recent memory as distorted as this year's Raps offense. Imagine prioritizing no passing and...

    Nice work, Axel. The only thing missing is to compare DD's stats this season vs. last season. I think you'll find that DD was, in fact, offensively elite last season. I use a pretty simple quick &...

    I dunno, after watching the game last night, Dekker kind of scares me. Haven't watched him that closely, but I wasn't overly impressed. Seems a bit slow footed, even at the college level. Maybe it...
