    It was about 80% of the NBA commentariat.

    Makes some sense, of course, it's hard to just jump immediately into 35 minutes a game, but I am not looking forward to Zion going back to 2.5 minute stints where he doesn't even touch the ball
    So, that confrims Pre-season Gentry in the house.

    I meaaaan, he didn't technically say that! Maybe he's planning to take everyone by surprise by attacking their dodgy short-minute rotations with a proper first-team assault.

    Maybe that's wishful thinking.

    But we'll see.

    So, if Homefield doesn't matter... These 8 games are basically pre-season games for the top seeds.

    Yeah, although theoretically getting the top seed still gives you the weakest opponent in the first round (that's not actually how reality works out, 8th seed isn't always the weakest, but you know what I mean), so it's still worth going for at least on paper. Who knows if anyone will actually bother though.

    I guess you could write this up as being in our favour. We wouldn't have homecourt in any series anyway, so it really just robs an advantage from the opponent.

    Just worth reminding people (in the slim chance that any of you may have forgotten) how good Zion was before things got shut down.

    Highest at-rim frequency in recorded NBA history.
    Longest streak of 20pt games by a rookie in a decade.
    62.4% TS

    36.6 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists per 100.

    Just crazy stuff

    Edit: Also, this is not intended to be an insult to anybody, but I just thought this stat was mindblowing:

    Lonzo Ball has played in 155 games, over the span of 3 years. He has made a total of 90 free throws, out of 186 attempts (48.4% career FT shooter).
    Zion Williamson has played in 19 games, over the span of about 7 weeks. He has made a total of 98 free throws, out of 152 attempts (64.5% FT shooter)

    It's crazy to me that Zion has made 8 more free throws in 136 fewer games.

    Also, if you look up players who have averaged at least 36.6 points per 100 across an entire season, you get a list of pretty much exclusively hall of famers, or players who will be hall of famers.

    Michael Jordan, Lebron James, Karl Malone, David Robinson, Shaquille O'Neal, Stephen Curry, James Harden, Giannis Antetokoumnpo, Dirk Nowitzki, Kobe Bryant, just to run through some of the more obvious names. The only guy on there who isn't a definite hall of fame guy, if I remember rightly, is Amar'e, who did it once.

    Is it weird that I hope Miller can bench Moore or atleast steal atleast half his minutes....

    Was Moore even playing to end the season?

    Like I said, not an insult to anybody. Lonzo obviously made improvements as a shooter this year; hell, he even improved a bit as a FT shooter. This year's 54% was a career high for him

    Just thought it was a wild stat

    Moore played in every one of our final 15 games and was averaging 14 minutes a night in that time.

    Miller may not even be ready to play in Orlando: he was saying that due to lockdown, he still hasn't played 3 on 3 or 5 on 5 at all, so they don't know when he'll be cleared for active play.

    His career FT stats kind of are toast with those 96 missed fts. He would need to hit 314 consecutive FT just get into the 80s. Even if he decides to shoot 90% for the foreseeable future. He only be 70% at 314 FTM at 90% efficient.


    When I think 96 missed FT... That's chump change... if you can get to the line. Lonzo will get better with experience, but he'll never be a player than can draw Superstar PG fouls.

    Other stats that do not matter but which I found amusing when looking at our team so far this year:

    If you look at our team, who gets to the line most and how many minutes they've played, you find this.

    1) Brandon Ingram. 330 FTAs in 1919 minutes: good for one FT per 5.8 minutes.
    2) Jaxson Hayes. 173 FTAs in 951 minutes: 1 FT per 5.5 minutes.
    3) Jrue Holiday. 170 FTAs in 1922 minutes. 1 FT per 11.3 minutes
    4) JJ Redick. 163 FTAs in 1425 minutes. 1 FT per 8.7 minutes (90.2% leads the team in FT%)
    5) Zion Williamson. 152 FTAs in 565 minutes. 1 FT per 3.7 minutes, by far the highest frequency on the team.
    6) Josh Hart. 91 in 1563: 1 FT per 17.1 minutes.
    7) Lonzo Ball. 67 in 1817: 1 FT per 27.1 minutes.

    You'll note that if you look up Free Throw Rate, that won't match these numbers: that's because Free Throw Rate isn't a per minute stat, but instead a per FGA stat. If you go by FTr, the top 5 guys look like this:

    1) Jaxson Hayes: .736
    2) Zion Williamson: .521
    3) Jahlil Okafor: .402
    4) Brandon Ingram: .328
    5) JJ Redick: .292
    ...
    10) Jrue Holiday: .181 (we know he never gets calls)
    ...
    13) Lonzo Ball: .107 (we know he never gets to the line)

    Top names in different stats per 100 possessions:

    1) Points per 100: Zion (36.6), Ingram (32.7), Redick (27.1)
    2) Rebounds per 100: Favors (18.9), Okafor (13.0), Hart (10.9)
    3) Assists per 100: Lonzo (10.0), Jrue (9.1), NAW (6.8)
    4) Steals per 100: Jrue (2.2), Lonzo (2.0), Hart (1.7)
    5) Blocks per 100: Jaxson (2.6), Okafor (1.9), Favors (1.6)

    Top Names in Different Other Stats (minimum 500 minutes played):

    1) True Shooting: Jaxson (67.5%), Redick (63.9%), Zion (62.4%)
    2) BPM 2.0: Zion and Ingram tied at +2.4, then Jrue +2.3
