Has anyone ever noticed Naz Mitrou-Long?
I was working on another thread, perusing the season leaders and noticed he's leading the NBA this season in PER (134.1) by at least 200 percent over the closest player. I was intrigued.
There's six low-usage no-names before we reach Harden at seven, Davis at eight, LeBron at nine, Curry at 10, Giannis at 11, three-game prodigy Monte Morris at 12 and Durant at 13. But Naz seems special, and for more than just his marketable first name.
The day after Christmas, he played one minute for the Utah Jazz in Denver, attempting and making one three-pointer. He hasn't played since.
He averages 108 points, 36 threes and nothing else per 36 minutes this season and for his career. He's in the 100/100/N/A club. His offensive rating is 300.
Should he retire so as not to taint his beautiful career? Is he destined for further greatness?

Well he's better than Bruno Caboclo, so that's something.

Why does anyone pay attention to stupid statitistcal numbers? Why would the guy even think of retiring at 24 because some clueless about the sport nerds think he has some magical record that needs to be preserved?

This tremendous accomplishment will exist in the history books , he shouldn't retire tho. He should try for it again next year, just gotta hit that 1 shot, take yourself out and then retire as the goat.

For all the haters, I found a rare statistical anomaly and felt like pointing it out. No; I'm not reading into his stats as a serious accomplishment. Yes; I added a little bit of humor related to the age of advanced metrics. Please remove the sticks from your *****.
