This seems like it should be true but so far it's been the opposite.

Stanley with OG: 115.0 ORTG
Stanley w/out OG: 93.4 ORTG
OG w/out Stanley: 109.3 ORTG


He probably gets them mixed up

Seems like SJ is intentionally not looking to score unless its an open 3. That was probably his biggest weakness last season, trying to do too much. I'd like to see him bring the ball up with speed.

Stanley gets a lot of hate and he's so underrated, especially on this board. We're struggling right now and I don't mind guys like Stanley and Watson getting a chance to go through some growing pains.

Stanley Johnson is strong, I mean he's Ron Artest strong. If he ever learns to hit the 3 on a decent clip, he will be a beats of a role player. He can also handle the ball really well, I really want to see Stanley play a point Forward position in the second unit, just let him handle and create. If the experiment fails it's low risk but a high reward if he develops.

If you go to the individual player pages you can compare players to get wowy traditional and advanced stats. NBA's stats website is so incredible.

I think he looks better than before, but from what I've seen he's still not completely passing the eye test as a rotation player. Our lack of front court depth is probably the biggest reason for his minutes now. He's still young though and is saying all the right things

Really impressed by his answers. The one that caught me off guard was, "I don't want to do more," when he was asked if he found it hard when he wants to show more when he gets a longer run. He really knows to stay within his capabilities. He also fully admits that when he wasn't getting floor time, it was because he hadn't earned it (paraphrasing).

I had stopped watching player interviews because answers had become so bloody predictable, but this was refreshing.
