Just thought I'd create this trade so anyone could post any random interesting stat. With this forum dead, i'll probably end up using it as a note pad. Anyway, I'll start with some:
-In the first 11 games, Payton is shooting 81.3% on FTs and 35.3% on 3 point shots. He has made 6 threes already. It took him 67 games to make 6 last year. Obviously that was one of our biggest concerns moving forward, and so far the signs are positive.
-Another big concern was Vucevic's help defense. He's averaging 2.2 blocks per 36 up from 0.8 per 36 last year. He's moving well, giving effort, and playing smart defense for the most part.
-One more concern is if anyone would have the ability to get to the FT line. So far Aaron Gordon's FT rate has been almost Harden-like at 53%.
