Johnson averaged 21.4 PPG 5.8 APG
4.4 RPG 2.4 Turnovers
Mayo averaged 18.5 PPG 3.2 APG
3.8 RPG 2.7 Turnovers
What is bolded
is very very important, Johnson not only scored more points but got others involved more efficiently than Mayo did this past season.
And it also has to due with popularity, Johnson is arguably one of the 20 best players in the NBA, however he plays for a nothing team in a nothing basketball market.
