It's normal. The best players are usually going to be turnover prone, because they are asked to do more with the ball. Like you mention Spanoulis, well being double teamed a lot causes turnovers also. That's a similar case to Big Sofo.
Big Sofo is a huge turnover guy, but it's because he gets double teamed basically as soon as he touches the ball. So again, it's normal.
But yes, it's a different case for a player like Weems if he is not asked to do much more than shoot open jumpers or run and dunk. Especially if he is getting a lot of open shots and not being trapped and doubled, and has another player create a lot for him.
That was just my point. Steve Nash always has huge turnover numbers......of course, because you are asking him to run so much of the offense. That's just what I meant.
It's not a coincidence that most turnover leaders in Euroleague are Saras, Diamantidis, Spanoulis, Papaloukas, Lakovic, Navarro...Guys that were being asked to carry huge offensive loads in their teams over the years.
I agree but to me even if player runs the offenseive load in his team there is still acceptable amount of turnovers that he can have and to me it's 4 . Ofcourse they shouldn't average 4 turnovers per game but it wouldn't be that bad if they have average around 3.5 .
Also you can't comepere Sofo with Diamantidis , Spanoulis , Navarro , Teodosic , Saras and such because he doesn't have the ball in his hands as much and doesn't create for otheres , he should just pass when he is doubled and this goes for every C .
