people seem to have this image in their heads that lou was the only guy who was attacking the basket last season.... but lou was probably the most guilty party of playing "collins ball" he took a lot of really bad long 2s as well.... had, by far, the most questionable shot selection on the team.
he did attack more than the others, but that was probably just simple a case of him having the highest usage rate on the team....
i love how mitchell praises lou for shooting 42% lol....
also, u can ignore than lou signed a multi year deal, while the sixers were/are in a transition phase....
ricky, before u start calling me a hater, ill reiterate what ive been saying since last season (which uve never EVER addressed)
if lou played off the ball instead of "the lou show" with holiday (and yes, turner as well) hed have had a higher fg% the team would have won the atlantic and lou would be one of the best (3rd or 4th tier) shooting guards in the league.... but the world doesnt work on maybes.
Nah, I'd say the only thing he did well was the fact that he was the best at drawing contact and getting to the line. Much better at that than anyone else we had last year or this year. One of the best in the league actually.
But besides that. Yeah, he affected the team negatively in almost every other possible way.
The year before, he ranked 12th (between Amare and Sessions) and 24th (between Lebron and Westbrook) in those same stats, respectively. I had to adjust it to players who played 20+ minutes per game, because he only played 23 mpg that year.
If you just compare him to backcourt players, those rankings are even much better, because the big men are only ever shooting under the basket and naturally drawing more contact.
No Hydro, your stats are no good because you can't set any qualifies. So that's including guys that almost never play, so their stats are outliers. And I was also talking about last season and season's prior, because that's what he did as a Sixer. What he does as a Hawk is less relevant because he's in a different system with different players and such.
The stats I'm using show he's one of the best in the league and has been for some time.
But again, that's one thing he does great. Almost everything else he does is detrimental to the team in one way or another.
