    The overreaction to Al's absence is not unexpected, but did anyone bother to notice we crushed a team that was 4-15, on the 3rd game of a road trip, and currently sports the 25th ranked defense?

    Yes, just about everyone noticed that.

    This is your basic cause/correlation fallacy.

    Or not. Isn't it possible that Al's absence is one of the reasons games without Al have been more entertaining? I know you've always been big on sticking to your guns (CJ!), but do you find Al-ball entertaining? How easily can a contender be built around a player like Al? Do you see that happening?

    I think you were entertained because it was our first big blowout of the year.

    It's plain silly to draw sweeping conclusions from a single game. Especially when the opponent was 4-15, on the 3rd game of a road trip, and has the 25th ranked defense in the league. Toronto had lost 8 of their last 9 games for god's sake.

    For perspective:

    Al is the 19th highest paid player in the league this season.

    Al is tied (with Kemba Walker) for 25th in points per game (17.4).

    Among the top 50 scorers in the NBA (coincidentally, these are the players who've scored 15.0+ ppg), Al is tied for 22nd in points per possession (this accounts for turnovers and fouls drawn). 3 players are tied with Al (Blake Griffin, Nic Batum, Goran Dragic).

    Of the 24 players who score more points per game than Al, 12 score more efficiently (with one, Blake Griffin, tied).
    Interesting stats. Do you know of any measurements that show the benefit other players receive from dominant players demanding so much attention? That's what I'd use to compare Big Al's true value. Most fans are oblivious to this aspect of NBA caliber offenses.

    I think shaq has it right when he talks about how Howard should score. The same can be applied to a guy like Al. Al takes three shots per quarter. The rest of his points are from put backs and going to the line
