Those 50 point trade offs with Iverson. Who could forget.
I miss the old days.

Default Re: Melo has 43 on 3 free throw attempts.

I didn't do this just to get Durant in here, but I used BBR game finder and made the FTA cut-off five instead of three since that's kind of arbitrary. Tonight makes the third time Carmelo has scored 40+ on 5 or fewer FT attempts. Durant has done it once. So coming into tonight Carmelo had a 2-1 lead in this very specific stat, bit of trivia, whatever you want to call it. Carmelo has also been in the league four more years than Durant.

I'd say the opposite, quite easily. His FT's are explicable. He usually gets fouled.


Yes, he also does flop and it's a shame, but most of his FT's are legit. And at least you CAN defend him. You're not allowed to defend Durant. Even if it's a block on the ball, with there clearly being space between the bodies. It's ridiculous.

Default Re: Melo has 43 on 3 free throw attempts.

If you raise the FTA to 8...

Durant: 4
http://www.basketball-reference.com/...=&order_by=pts

Carmelo: 8 (counting tonight)
http://www.basketball-reference.com/...=&order_by=pts

Not that this necessarily helps Durant's argument, but he also has 26 career 40-point games to Carmelo's 24. In 8 of his 40 point games, Durant has attempted 10 or fewer FT's and 5 others with 11 or fewer; and in 9 of Carmelo's 40-point games he's attempted 10 or fewer FT's and 1 other with 11 or fewer. And again, Durant has been in the league 4 fewer years than Carmelo.

What are you talking about? If its any superstar in the league who gets the least respect in that aspect its Lebron... he used to get respect there years ago, but nowadays it is the biggest opposite believe it or not....

Durant averages ~9 FTA
Carmelo averages ~8 FTA
Lebron averages ~6 FTA... thats by far his lowest since his god damn rookie year where he also averaged 6 FTA...

He is still attacking the rim and everything, its just that he is not getting those shooting calls anymore... those fouls Durant & Carmelo get right now... i have no idea what is going on, i think its because of Lebrons strength or something and he seems to not sell (flop) it so well i guess... neither does he like to do the "fake & jump into defender" thing like so many superstars cant wait to do....

THIS.

43/5/7/1 on 20/32 and 3/3 at the line.



He also lost them the game at the end with an unnecessary foul, but he thought there was less time than there was. Can't blame him after he went super saiyan for the previous 45 minutes.

What's the point of this? 8 is a high amount of free throws. It's how much superstars usually get any given game. You raise it to 10 and what not then it's not an anomaly...it's the norm.

Whats the point of looking for the norm?

5 or fewer FTA: 5
10 or fewer FTA: 16 (with one game of 11 FTA)
