Especially since there is a clear relationship between opposing defensive strength impacting individual playoff stats yet little to no demonstrated impact of star teammates impacting individual playoff stats.
I can only shrug my shoulders
at your reasoning.
Where did I say strength of defense and record of opposing teams wasn't valued? But that shouldn't be all the variables that are included in this particular argument. Strength of defenses and opponent's records are important. But so are things like role on the team and who their teammates were.
So I can only shrug my shoulders
at only including certain things that fit your agenda and ignoring other things that don't.
