TOTAL PLAYOFF MINUTES played of 792 minutes is an empty stat for you?
You want more?
He played 78 games for a total of 2603 mins, he averaged 27% in 2005.
He played the WHOLE 82 games in 2006 for a grand total of 3071 mins
he shot a measly14.3% from the 3pt line.
Don't get me wrong for posting these FACTS!, I like Deng, he is just not a 3pt shooter that some fans are envisioning him.
I forgot the analyst who wisely pointed the the fact that Dengs OVERALL FG% actually INCREASED at 51.7%! when shot a measly 14% from the 3pt line, would you like to know why?
it's bec he ONLY took SEVEN 3pt shots, SEVEN!!!, 51.7% is he CAREER BEST!
Maybe he has improved from the 3pt area the past few years, but hitting 8% when he ave 40 mins/game (202 mins) is just too low IMO.
To me he is MORE deadly with his 16-18 footers.
