      Wow, after dropping 52 points on Dallas, Durant has inched past Melo on the PPG leaderboard with 29.3 (second behind Kobe). He has a usage of 29.6% and a TS% of .653. Nobody in NBA history has ever posted a high-usage/high-efficiency season that good. Unreal.

      Continuing last nights thread about Gallinari and Chandler’s doing worse than expected, I think part of it is that players look better in a D’antoni offense. The same thing happened with Shawne Williams. He looked good enough playing for the Knicks to get a good free agent contract from NJ and then did nothing. I think their talent is still there because Karl is giving them as many minutes as D’antoni did; they are just are in a different offensive system.

      To his credit, Woodson seems to have learned from D’antoni, and we haven’t seen individual offensive performances fall off since the coaching change.

      Gallo’s percentages and game has been affected most by his transformation into an average three point shooter rather than the marksman he was early in his Knick career. He still has a great ability to draw fouls and does a pretty good job of putting up paints with a varied offensive game.

      The drop in his three point percentage has really hurt his efficiency with his TS% dropping in each of the last 4 years. I thought he would become a better version of the solid role player he is now, maybe he finds his shooting stroke at some point and upps his efficiency again.

      Chandler has struggled with injuries and form for the majority of his time in Denver so maybe I was a bit aggressive in asking what happened to him. That being said Wilson’s been injury prone for the duration of his career and his entire tenure in Denver has been sub-par to say the least.

      Wilson Chandler has never been good, but he has been Michael-Beasley-bad in Denver.

      It makes you realize just how good Amar’e was in Phoenix- .656 TS% at a usage of 28.2 in 07/08.

      From the other thread related to Shump’s position. If Woodson doesn’t have Shumpert guarding a player that is doing a lot of the other team’s ball handling it would be a terrible misuse of him as a defensive player. Shump is a ball hawk. Sure he can guard a bigger player in the post because he plays aggressively but that’s not at all where he is most disruptive. What he and guys like Bradley do is disrupt flow by not letting teams get into their offense by bothering the ball handler. That has to be Shump’s role.

      Very much agree with this, in part because Shump is still figuring out NBA level rotations on defense. I’m excited to see what he can accomplish this year
