You truly trust analytics? There are holes in the system and it even says so on the website.

 

There are limitations on all box score stats – if the box score doesn't measure a particular contribution, a box-score-based metric can only approximate that contribution. This is not a great hindrance on the offensive side, as nearly everything of importance on offense is captured by the box score (only missing things like screen-setting), but on defense the box score is quite limited. Blocks, steals, and rebounds, along with minutes and what little information offensive numbers yield about defensive performance are all that is available.

Advanced stats are not the end all, be all. But they provide great support that is, most importantly, completely unbiased. You have extreme bias for Arikawe. In a game where he goes 1-6 from the field you’re singing his praises for doing the dirty work. Not saying he didn’t do dirty work, just pointing out the unwavering bias.

Speaking of bias, you are a guy who was incorrectly told by someone you trust that Zachary Simmons wasn’t good early on in his career and your perception of him has clearly been affected by that. So much so that after two years of him establishing himself as the best big on the team, and one of the best young bigs in the conference, and after a game where he goes for 19 points and 16 rebounds you are talking about our other bigs who give us almost nothing.

Two guys who have failed everyone’s eyeball tests but yours and who we tell you are objectively not good, and have ample stats to back that up. And your response is that stats aren’t everything, once again confirming your bias.

Such critical components of defense as positioning, communication, and the other factors that make Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan elite on defense can't be captured, unfortunately.

This is painfully false. It’s 2019, we’re not just relying on the five major stat categories anymore.

He gets zero credit toward the 6 rebounds that he helped Miller and Gibson acquire and he doesn’t get any for forcing the ball back out onto the perimeter. 

Also not true, from an advanced stats standpoint.

A healthy Woolridge makes all the difference.   Super game by Zack, he can dominate.  

Yup. Fun to see the band back together

Let's remember he wanted to start Alcindor because ... reasons?

Why bother, Andrew just has a very different view.   There is absolutely nothing to back up his infatuation with little used backup front court players, but you got to admire his persistence.

Because the last game of the season didn’t matter and I wanted to rest Zach because if we are going to win this tournament our starters needed rest and our bench players need a little experience just in case they are needed due to injurie or foul trouble. I wish we had red shirted Alcindor, but since we didn’t we should have got him more experience. What will we do if Zach Simmons goes down early with an injury? Run a 5 guard line up with Woolridge and Jahmiah already injuried? Play Arikawe all game? It’s important that if you have a bench you work to get them some experience throughout the season. If something does happen and Alcindor  must play he won’t have hardly any experience and then be tossed into a very important tournament game. Odds are slim Simmons gets injured, but you should always prep for any situation throughout the season.

Where can we watch the replay?  Is it out there?   I have so much to do today, the replay could make all of it go much faster!
