in the same respect aren't offensive #s universally good for superstars on terrible teams?Beal is light-years ahead of Middleton offensively. They have pretty similar efficiency numbers, but Beal does it at a much higher volume while being by far the best scoring option on his team. I'm not stressing about his defense, the defensive effort of offensive superstars on terrible teams is universally bad. Beal is also a couple of years younger and has taken some big jumps the last few seasons.
Even Davis Bertans, shooting savant, is going to cash out big playing on that rotten team
