    Bargnani i dont dispute but Gay? I think you cant just focus on statistics but the circumstances surrounding it as well.

    I found this point to be particularly interesting:

    A researcher offered an explanation for why bad NBA teams tend to hang around so many games, only to lose in the end. It’s because teams with leads become risk averse, tighten up and shoot less three-pointers than they should while teams that trail play loose and take risks. Still, as author Justin Rao said in his lecture, “at clutch moments, a good team and a bad team are worlds apart — in some cases it’s like a pro team against a college team.”
    We've seen a lot of Raptor fans, as well as Casey and Colangelo speak about how "close" we are, while using all those close losses early in the season as evidence. The quote above suggests that it's all a mirage.

    Gay's was heavily based on potential that was never seen.

    Rudy Gay is the 4th highest paid small forward in the NBA this season and the 23rd ranked small forward in terms of PER.
    His usage rate is through the roof (12th in the entire league, 4th among small forwards) and yet he ranks outside the top 50 in advanced stats like true shooting percentage and assist ratio. In a nutshell, he gets paid a ton of money and does a lot of things that analytics guys don't like.

    This is true. Instead of taking it inside we chill on the perimeter jacking bricks
