    I initially found that a very interesting concept/thought .. now it's just ingrained and instinctual.
    To me that tells me he understands that most of the time when people are getting steals they are gambling. If you look at it from a possession standpoint it tells me that unless you are averaging an abnormally high amount of steals that you might be gambling too much which leads to easy buckets which means bad defense.

You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?

    Looking at the other characters from Vandread there is a guy who wears all orange... The pic I used for you is some guy dressed up as that orange wearing guy!!

    Nope, I got my name from that racist joke about the african-american woman that named her son Lemonjello because she likes lemon jello. My favorite color is orange, that is where it come from. I know, not unique or cool like Zulu the African Prince!

My saying his defense was suspect was in direct response to so many wanting shot-blockers. OhGee - You remember coming into the 2012 thread and asking if I was surprised to see a particular great block by Kanter in one game last year. I said I was ..

    I never really doubted Kanter's overall defense, because I had seen his strength, motor, and willingness to use both .. but I also knew he wasn't going to be a 'defender' in the ilk most here thought they wanted/needed.

    Fine, I'll try and keep it on subject from now on. Zulu, we need to take our discussion somewhere else.

    Kanter's offensive game has been coming along nicely. Looking at the mysynergysports.com stats, there are a couple problems that stand out. Fortunately, both seem fixable.

    1. Kanter turns the ball over at an alarming rate. Median team turnover rate is 13.4%. Kanter's stands at 21.6% (Favors: 13.2%; Millsap: 10.4%; Jefferson: 6.9%). Kanter is tops among the 4 bigs in postup points per possession at 0.84 (Millsap: 0.84; Favors: 0.83; Jefferson: 0.82; league average as of December 14th: 0.83), despite turning the ball over on 32.8% of his postups (shots, shooting fouls or turnovers).

    2. Kanter converts offensive rebounds at a very poor rate. 21.2% of Kanter's scoring opportunities come off offensive rebounds (league average as of December 14th: 6.5%...although this is certainly much higher for bigs). On these opportunities, he puts up 0.85 points per possession. League average PPP on offensive rebounds is 1.10; league average PPP on all non-transition scoring opportunities (postups, Pick and rolls, cuts, spotups, etc.) is 0.92 (both league average numbers as of December 14th).

    Dude needs to pass when shots aren't there. On offensive rebounds, if you can get a shot right away, take it. If not, reset the offense. In postups, protect the ball, and pass it out when stuck in traffic. Seems easy enough.
