    Quin Snyder would be mad about this conclusion and he would be right.
    An NBA game is decided by an average of 4.6 points last time I checked, perhaps it is a bit higher now. Anyway 0. 266 is about 5~6% of that alone . It's not insignificant at all. It is a quarter. Ask the significance of half a point to punters. It's a thousand dollars sometimes.

    er

    i kind of would maybe like it if he learned some kind of jump shot, maybe a hook shot. otherwise nobody respect him.

    but then he'd cost more, so oh well.

    I think I'm self-aware, but people that have the least amount of self-awareness likely think they are self-aware AF.

    It's part and parcel of the Dunning-Kruger effect. The current most obvious example can be found if you google "Dunning Kruger president."

    They don’t matter...until they start hacking him late game...or if he’s playing extended minutes if Rudy is injured

    1.3 games on average if history repeats itself. Smile. My question to you is how sure are you that it will never happen? It just has to happen once for the correlation to pay. Let's keep track of it and see. And I hope he makes 90% of his free throws so it is a moot point.

    Funny, I had zero confidence in Favors’ free throws.

    Doesn't matter is Donovan scores 24 or 25, it's just a point.

    Rudy 10 boards or 11 boards, just one board. no impact

    Jingles 40% or 39% from three. just 1%. no impact.

    Conley 6 assists of 7. no impact



    Over the course of a season, everything matters.

    They do matter. But to isolate one variable — of hundreds — and squabble over the difference is missing the mark.

    If we are down to haggling over the free throw percentage of our backup center as a major worry, life is pretty damn good

    I'm not saying it's a huge concern but it is one. We haven't really had a terrible free throw shooter on the team for a while. No reason to freak out.
