Default Re: The Knicks Official Regular Season Game Thread.

The only thing I got from the article is what everyone has said over and over again...

He needs to pass more and shoot less, and at least the article is concrete proof that his teammates are good enough to hit a basket if he freely and willingly gave up the ball in the right spots....NOT KICKOUTS.

Not really surprised Pablo and Tyson woiuld be exceptions....

Pablo doesnt really shoot at all, and Tyson basically is lobs at best on offense with an ocassion jumper.

But speaking of articles, this one really interesting......

According to the player tracking technology at SportVU, Anthony makes 42.7 passes a game. That's comparable to other 20-point-per-game small forwards, such as Miami's LeBron James (49.4), Indiana's Paul George (46.7), Orlando's Arron Afflalo (44.2) and Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant (37.7). Of Anthony's 42.7 passes, about 6.5 a game would become assists if his teammates hit all the shots they created. In other words, about 15% of Anthony's passes lead to a scoring opportunity.

How does that rate rank among the aforementioned group? At the bottom, far behind those of Durant (32%) and James (24%), and still trailing Afflalo (17.8%) and George's (15.2%). Moreover, Anthony's 0.7 "hockey assists" per game—passes that lead to an assist for someone else—are on the low end for the group.


And there it is...concrete data.
