    Yeah, I agree, It's more like we're rusty. A little slow to get to the spots a little slow to react to some things. I think it throws off the rhythm, but they'll eventually start falling.

    A lot of that is part of being in rhythm. When players are in a good rhythm, those shots are falling. As long as we're playing the right way, the shots will eventually fall.

    It's certainly possible that there are metrics out there that address some of the things I'm more interested in. What are the metrics that measure some of the the things I mentioned (e.g., how much...

    Well I'm not saying that stats should be entirely dismissed, but you have to keep in mind what my position is on this, which is that the things that truly matter in basketball (e.g., how much a...

    Sure, I think that we can use numbers in this way to get a rough estimate of these sorts of things, but I think we need to factor in a lot of other things as well and I think that's where it gets...

    The numbers literally say nothing other representing numerical entities. You are drawing conclusions from those numbers. Sure, the numbers say LBJ is better than Kerr and we can trust that. The...

    Numbers don't state conclusions, so yes they don't lie and they also say nothing about anything other than numbers. The interpretations from those numbers is what's in question and those...

    Yes, I certainly agree about small differences adding up over a large sample size. We've actually had this discussion before, but my point was more to the fact that on the surface, the raw scoring...

    It would be suggestive, sure. One issue though is that when one player is better by a lot across a multitude of metrics, it's not clear to what extent that scales in terms of how much better that...
