And technically his scoring efficiency is worse than Bogans. Bogans has a higher eFG% and TS%, despite a lower 3pt% and FG%. Even though that doesn't even sound possible, it's because Parker chucks a lot of stupid shots up that pretty much negates his good 3pt efficiency.
With Bogans' slightly better defense, he's actually been a more efficient player this year. . .believe it or not. :P Based on stats anyway.
Edit: and I'm not sure when I became the resident Bogans defender.
But while his normal stats look not so good, his advanced stats don't look so bad. Surprisingly.
The situation bet Bogans and Parker is almost apples to oranges, very hard to compare when Bogans is getting a ton of open looks bec of the presence of Rose and Boozer while the defenders of Parker have NO REASON to leave him open, almost always a hand on his face.
Last night, Bogans shot very well but I was a big diappointed with his defense, leaving Thornton wide open and allowing a layup in the 3rd quarter.
