I view the point of a basketball game to score more points than your opponent does. I also believe that preventing your opponent from putting the ball through the basket ultimately impacts the game the same amount as putting the ball through the basket yourself. If Thybulle blocks a shot, recovers the ball, and kicks it up court for a transition dunk, you would label that "zero production."
That's not to say he isn't a niche player but that wasn't your argument. Your argument was that he was one of the least productive rotation players in the NBA.
Just because I pointed out the fact that Thybulle is unproductive does not mean that I said he was ineffective. My use of production is directly tied to scoring production. Not whether or not he makes a positive impact when he's on the court.
And the only reason I pointed out how unproductive he is on a per minute basis is to counter someone saying that Shamet was only marginally more effective than him offensively.
That's fine but my post to you was essentially saying that you believe that scoring = production and now you've confirmed that you're actually using them as synonyms. So it seems like we're not actually disagreeing?
