Respectively, the article I used was "a" and not "the". My meaning was that he has performed that role well, not that he is NBA elite at setting screens. Hope the clarification helps.
That's fine, but you are using it as part of an argument as to why Birch deserves more minutes than Bamba. I would say Birch is pretty elite at setting screens, at least by the metric of screen assists. The problem with the argument is, that by that same measure, Bamba is also elite, or at least very close to equal Birch.
Bamba screen ain't so good....
Yah, and Bamba probably won't see the court again because of that one play, and his 21.8 screen assist points per 36 will be ignored, in context, Goebert 21.1, and Birch also with a sparkling 19.5, Vuc at 10.6.
