    Luka Doncic: Overrated, Underrated, or Irradiated?

    I’d also add that i don’t think the playoffs necessarily reveal a players “true” level. we saw this year more than years past how matchup dependent the playoffs are. just because paper ends up playing against scissors doesn’t mean paper is somehow objectively worse. put paper against rock and...

    Luka Doncic: Overrated, Underrated, or Irradiated?

    Apparently my citing of back picks plus minus stat for the past two seasons wasn’t offering my own adjusted plus minus metric that’s superior to raw plus minus. to recap for those who missed it, it had Luka 2nd in the NBA in the past 2 regular seasons, and also 2nd in this years playoffs.

    yeah, i don’t disagree with any of those points. i just don’t think raw plus minus says much. i mean, you lay out the right logic in how teammates should impact that number. so why not just systematically apply that same logic… and end up re creating an adjusted plus minus metric? it’s a...

    yeah, Ive seen that video. again, raw on/off is not great even over several seasons because teammate quality is a thing. the thinking basketball plus minus model had doncic 3rd in the playoffs in plus / minus at 6.9 (ahead of Tatum, o no!) and 2nd in the regular season. in 22-23 doncic was 2nd...

    that discussion is from 7 months ago. he finished the season at a +9.4 which is top tier. his playoff on off was excellent as well. but anyways why use raw on off when we have readily available metrics that correct for teammates and opponent?

    His on off aren’t top 20? Which on off are we talking about? that sounds unbelievable.

    it was weird hearing them talk about how valuable his switch ability was in the finals and talking about how curry has aged and steadily declined in impact metrics and…. then put curry over tatum.

    Edey has a 9’7 standing reach. Brook Lopez is 9’5, Kornet is 9’4. For what it’s worth.

    Tom Brady is retired

    it’s hard not to be a better runner than brady but using ypc is totally ignoring the context that a huge portion of brady’s runs were short yardage sneaks. which he was extremely good at.
