Yikes. Advanced stats kill Derrick Rose...maybe you're right.
Rose is the main reason why Porzingis looks kind a bad in some stretches, Rose was not the right move to do for the Knicks, because it hurts KP development atleast right now imo.
No offense but Porzingis was playing like an all star up until Christmas, and after that Christmas game he said his Achilles was bothering him and been in and out the lineup and hasn't been the same since. I guess his injury was Rose's fault?
You know why he was playing like an all star? Because he was playing great basketball with Jennings on the floor not Rose... Jennings is pass first point guard in New York right now, but Rose is just looking for his shot most of the times, he is not making his teammates better.
If you look at Porzingis best games this season, for example 35 when he dropped against Pistons, he scored 5 baskets after Jennings assists, but only 1 time after the pass by Rose.
Another career game vs Suns where he scored 34 points, he scored 3 baskets after Jennings pass, but 0 after Rose pass, over half of his points he scored with second unit.
So my point is Porzingis loves to play with the Knicks second unit with Jennings on the floor, he is dishing assists and moving the ball, with Rose on the floor he show off his tunnel vision while driving to the basket...
