Default This Chart Sums Up How Messed Up The Wolves Offense Is



KAT who ranks 4th in the league in TS%, 7th in eFG% and 3rd in PPP is getting less shots then Wiggins.

What's sad is that despite how horribly run our offense is, is that we currently have the 4th best offense in the league.

Hell, KAT is taking less shots then he did as a rookie

It's a tragedy and a crime against basketball.

Especially considering what he did against the Warriors in th 4th the other day.

Wiggins is getting paid more.. so he should work more.
Perhaps the reason why he needs to take more shots.

Let's not act as if all the posters with at least half a brain weren't saying that the TWolves were stupid to give Wiggins a max deal.

Volume scorer on low to mediocre level efficiency. Gives you 4rpg and 2apg per 36 minutes. Below average defender. His career VORP is negative, meaning that he is functionally a below average player.

Greg Oden is less of a bust than Wiggins because his injury never translated to a team signing him to a massive deal and destroying their future. Twolves won't be able to keep both Butler and Towns. They'll have to choose only one and it'll definitely be Towns. A Wiggins and Towns duo is doomed to never compete for anything beyond a 7th or 8th seed in the West.

If Towns wants a chance to ever compete for a title before he turns 28, he'll have to walk out after his rookie contract expires. There's almost zero chance that the T-Wolves will ever be able to move Wiggins.

Funny how you pretend to be this knowledgeable Wolves fan (despite the obvious tardfan username) and then you cherry pick a few advanced stats (they are NEVER manipulated) for a trollish thread.

You are a clown dude.

You watch the games, you know whatís going on, and you canít be happy even after a win over the Warriors.

Wolves fans are losers, born and bred. Only happy when they are sad and craving anger.

Gonna be HILARIOUS when KAT leaves. And oh yeah, he WILL leave.

I'm a fan of the Wolves.

You are a fan of Wiggins.

Deal with it.

This is happening because Thibs favors Taj Gibson

Taj is attempting the 2nd most field goals per game in his entire career, at 32 years old, smh!

He's scoring efficiently but every shot he takes is a wasted attempt that could have and should have gone to someone else, baseline twos and putbacks don't get it done.

Wiggins and Taj (and the trash ass coach) need to be replaced for the Wolves to be taken seriously

Wiggins takes 15 shots a game. About like Tobias Harris or TJ Warren. Not like heís just....gunning. Shots seem spread around pretty well. Being the whateverthe****numberwecreated4yearsago leader doesnít and shouldnít really determine who shoots what.

A lot of shot attempts arenít even designed offense....

It doesn't? What argument is there for Wiggins to have more shots?

Do you think you can sit down and determine just how many shots each person takes in a game that includes Fastbreak opportunities, tip ins, and defensive mishaps leaving people wide open?

You aren’t running down filling your lane on the break and thinking you don’t need to go to the basket because such and such needs to hit 17 shots tonight.

A breakdown of called plays for each would be more telling than shot attempts if we are talking offensive gameplan. Or maybe a tracking of Wiggins breaking the offense to do his own thing. And even then a lot of sets are multi option depending on coverage. Teams can decide to concede your second option instead of your first once they know your intent...and teams know your intent these days. The scouting is too good.

The attempts number alone doesn’t mean much.

It doesn’t give you the why.

And as always....the why is the key.
