Also the "fat" Waiters picture shows me just how incredibly ripped NBA players really are.

Gasol gets credit for the rest of the Spurs' defense. DWS is calculated by first figuring out how good the defense is overall, and then giving out shares to each player based 25% on minutes, 50% on rebounds, and 25% on assists. The offensive formula is better but still has major flaws. WS are overrated.

Actually looks like I remembered that wrong, that was only for years prior to 74-75. My bad.

For 1951-52 to 1972-73, yes. It was used as a proxy for steals, as they were not tracked until 73-74 season.

2013 was one of the worst draft, yet a team could have locked a 10 years contender by picking 2 non-lottery guys

Lol tanking

Was the 2013 draft even that bad? Lots of good players from that draft imo.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2016-2017

yeah fairly passable draft imo. and the future GOAT came from it which makes it automatically acceptable

think guivre just felt like slurping gobert randomly since he can't say much about him right now due to his injury

Re: NBA Season Thread 2016-2017

It wasnt even bad its just everybody had evaluated the talent wrong . Also it took a bit for the talent to show but now that you look back if it was actually drafted right its not a bad draft.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2016-2017

As others have mentioned 2013 draft was fine talent wise, just some of the picks in the lottery were LOL.

There are 2 potential all-stars/all-nba players; and afterwards 10 solid starters/6 men level players near the top of the draft.

Bennett-we all knew he sucked
McLemore--no one is shocked he sucked
Len--yeah white Stiff
Burke-meh

Re: NBA Season Thread 2016-2017

The Cavs with a very solid 1/19 pick combo of two guys who are no longer in the NBA lol

But that was also a draft where the lottery was hugely varied, mocks were all over the place, everybody knew it was a crapshoot going in.

God had Cavs drafted Giannis and Rudy, they'd probably would have traded them for Kevin Love with Lebron comeback

Does MCW currently have the worst career for a rookie of the year ever? Can't think of another guy who can't get off the bench just three years later.
