    Blake is not a natural shooter though, neither are Bynum or Rondo. All 3 were fairly bad shooters. As you say Wade was a pretty good midrange shooter. He is shooting 32.4% on 2.8 attempts per game. He is a capable 3pt shooter who can make them if left open. Which is my point.

    As for their not being a transitive property, that isn't entirely true. Talk to PSK more since he knows more than I but he saw someone who posited a correlation between FT% and anbility to shoot the 3. The formula is 3pt% / 2 - .05.

    Blake .666 FT% = projected 28.3 3pt% (actual 26.6%)
    Rondo .605 FT% = projected 25.5 3pt% (actual 29.1%)

    The caveat is that they needed to be a natural shooter to begin with, which none of those 3 are (and their FT% support that). Certainly not a perfect correlation but a general one and in this way we can predict a general idea of how players could shoot from 3.

    I will be interested to see how long until Rolo starts shooting 3's. He isn't really a natural shooter so I bet it will be harder for him to pick it up than guys like Pau or Horford. But amazingly we can already see my theory in effect on Rolo just from a shorter distance:

    before this season he took 6.1% of his shots from 16-23 ft. this year he is taking 23.8% of his shots from that distance and making 42.9% of them. So this being the first real year he started shooting midrange shots and he seems to be doing fairly well.

    As for Wade, he's actually shooting the highest 3PT% of his career this year. Which I think was what I was trying to say, not that anyone can just pick up shooting 3's and be a good 3pt shooter, but that most players who are decent mid range shooters can become a capable 3pt shooter relatively quickly and the idea that older players wouldn't have been able to shoot the 3 is very overblown.

    So regarding that Westbrook live ball turnover stats: http://fansided.com/2017/01/13/nylon...ive-turnovers/

    Westbrook's is slightly higher than Harden's.

    Any interest in doing the all-time auction redraft? I might "come out of retirement" to play again but no way do I have the time to do it by myself. Plus this is my MJ with the Wiz return not baseball MJ so I want a good partner haha.

    Sorry mate, I haven't been logged in for a few weeks. I think Leonard will be our MVP this year. USG cluster **** in GS/punish them for not topping last seasons regular season, LBJ will sit too many games, and the Thunder, Rockets and Pelicans won't win 50 games. I have Leonard by process of elimination.

    I think Leonard, James, Curry, Paul/Blake, Durant, George, Harden, Westbrook, Davis, Giannis, maybe a Raptor, maybe a Celtic and KAT split up the award shares this year. We usually see 10-12 players splitting those vote up I see it being these 12 give or take. I think Leonard has the easiest path to the MVP.

    Doubt it. Lot of the public analytic models don't love the Twolves interestingly (or not as much as their Vegas line). But even if they beat that Vegas line, most MVPs come from teams with 50+ wins- highly doubt they reach that (near lock they don't). So highly doubt he gets MVP talk. Team won't be good enough (even if he is).
