Has anyone ever won the MVP award with his team only 0.5 pts per 100 possessions with him on the court?

Example #180 of why defense is extremely important.

Dudes having a really weird season for sure

0.5 On/Off, #7 in RPM, #463 in DRAPM, and #78 in RAPM. Will be interesting to see if he can step up the defense in the post-season, because he's been quite awful so far this season.

So no one's going to comment on the huge discrepancies between RAPM and RPM?

Fine. I will. I think Engelman has rigged RPM to give an answer that the fans want to see- ie, that the most popular players have similar ratings. The reality is better reflected by the Raw numbers and RAPM- That Curry is terrorizing the league, Harden is overrated and James is extremely overrated this year.

RAPM- Curry- 1st by a long ways.

Harden- 53rd.

James- 78th.

Raw On/Off- Curry is way ahead of Harden and obliterating James.

RPM- Top players ranked close to the same.

When Lebron's team is winning. He's the GOAT

When he's losing. His teammates are trash and he has no help. Lmaoo with that shit

You would think they would be better than 26-16 if that were true.

MVP

How has Harden shown you that TS% is flawed? It accounts for FTs, which he is great at (both drawing fouls and making FTs).

If you want something less flawed (as you put it), look at EFG %. Harden is 34th in the NBA. Considering shot volume, difficulty, and the amount the Harden isos, 34th is amazing.

The only guards ranked higher than Harden who also shoot high volume are Oladipo and Curry. Neither Curry or Oladipo attempt as many shots as Harden though, but they come close (within 4 FGA fewer per game). However, neither of them come close to as many iso possessions per game (9.1 for Harden, 2.3 for Oladipo, 1.4 for Curry).

This shows that Harden takes difficult shots on much higher volume than other high volume shooters, yet he is still highly efficient. TS% accounts for the iso possessions where he gets to the line, which is one of the most efficient things a good shooter can do.

Maybe after reading this, you might see some more value in TS%.

Like Boogie

Stack as many counting stats as possible baby

TIL if you're a great player then its impossible to have a bad game

No, he pathetically writes personal essays for me. I feel special.

Is this a pasta?

And a new pasta has been born

That's cute
