It is about how much do you weight the 1st 8 games or so of his PS run last year to the rest of it, because there was a major uptick in production. Before that, people had skepticism of whether Giannis was easier to scheme against than other offensive players and with only such a large sample size at that point, it really came down to what someone saw with their eye.
Well I'm comparing him to the entire league and saying there are only a couple of players I feel confident are better offensive players than him. And its not 8 games of high level play. It's 5 years worth of it. That's a big enough sample size for me and frankly if we can't reach conclusions based on that large of a sample size we are calling everything randomness which seems silly, but if you stat guys tell me that's true I'll believe you, but then all of this is utterly pointless.
And I'm curious which players you think require greater scheming defensively than Giannis? Because that list might be Steph and nobody.
