If 2019 KD's a good playmaker 

Post#1 » by freethedevil » Thu Oct 10, 2019 7:16 am

How did he manage more to's than shot attempts vs the 19th ranked defense the one and only time kerr asked him to help run the offense in the playoffs?

And if isolation scoring isn't affected by playmaking, how was a mediocre defense able to force kd's volume to plummet when he was asked to run the ball?

he shot 5-8 had 12 ft so he shot 14 times so he didnt have more TO then shots he just got the whistle. Next game he was 14-23 38 pts 7 ast. so yeah everyone has a bad game sometimes. For KD that was making 21pts on 5-8 shooting with 9 TO

KD always been a subpar playmaker, Houston made him one dimensional last year, making him go ISO everytime and he can't create for others like elite playmakers

KD is not a good playmaker. He's an average playmaker. Who is saying he's a good playmaker??

That's quite the impressive sample size you're using to make your point....

ftfy.

usg%

Usage % measures how many times a possession ends with a player making a play(including shots). Don't use stats you don't understand :roll:

Assist % tells you who makes the penultimate play on a possesion, not who sets the play up.

If KD's playmaking was trusted, then the sample size would be larger wouldn't it?

He did get a second crack at it in game 2 vs the rockets when curry and harden was out. Off course, the warriors nearly lost 1 15 point lead during that stretch. :-?
