Cool, did you check which ones Collin does at the level of the Cavs offensive rating or better?
Not that an offensive rating of 107.3 is good or anything, we are 24th in the league ... but anything Collin does with a PPP > 1.073 would be something that would improve the team as opposed to hurt the team.
I found transition and spotup, but we don't need Collin playing PG to benefit from those.
You realize that means Garland is even worse and hurts the team more... Also literally EVERY offensive stat that both of them are in, Sexton is better except for Handoff. That's all but Post Up and Pick and Roll Man
"Harm" in this case would be a factor of PPP and number of possessions. A player can literally do less damage by trying to do less. Some fans (on other boards) are upset that Garland hasn't been more assertive, but more bad offense is not a good thing.
So, Garland initiating plays that other players finish could be a good use of him on the floor. Which isn't to say that we wouldn't be even better with say Delly filling that role (if he could find his shot) but we are bound by the constraint that the kids are going to get their minutes.
Bottom line is that Collin's negative floor time is an ongoing concern. When that happens even when he's having a high-scoring solid-efficiency game, there's just something amiss..
And if Collin is the guy who makes his team better, Darius shouldn't be constantly putting up a better +/- number than him.
Unless of course he's just in better line-ups that make it easier to hide how bad he's been while Collin's been asked to carry worse players... I mean there could be that too...
-edit- Also that's Points Per Play. As in whenever Garland runs those plays he's just worse than Sexton period.
Pick and Roll: Worse
Put-Backs: Doesn't even Register for Garland
Literally the only thing that Garland is better than in every aspect of scoring points he's < 1.0 PPP. Sexton actually is higher than the 1.07 you wanted in several categories.
