Playing Westbrook next to a proper SG instead of Schröder would have helped this team ths season imo.
Btw: After Roberson went down, the team averaged 254.3 passes per 100 and 8.7 miles covered per 100 on offense. That's less movement on offense than this season (8.9 miles covered per 100), but more passing (231.6 passes per 100). I wonder how much of that nosedive in passing is due to Schröder being used as a trash carbon copy of Russ that isolates and then either attempts a mediocre shot or tries to set up a teammate. As the season went on, they went away from ISO Melo a little bit and I think this shows in the numbers.
EDIT: Yep - last season Melo average 1.9 FGA per game after touching the ball for at least 7 seconds while averaging 7.2 FGA after touching the ball for 0-2 seconds. This season, Schröder 5.0 FGA per game after touching the ball for at least 7 seconds.
i seem to recall us doing a lot of that b.s. passing around the perimeter stuff with felton last year. schroder is much more likely to just keep the ball and dispense with all that.
you won't find argument from me re: schroder.
i'm also not sure how important passing per 100 poss is to our offense.
