    Is the challenge rule under review for the NBA, or will it remain a g-league only rule?

    This seems like a great rule. Random number of challenges, refs floor call always stands, and the coaches can use their challenges to actually force a correct call.

    Not sure where else to put this. The forum doesn’t work in Tapatalk anymore. Is this because of the switch to a new server? If so does anyone know when we’ll be able to log in on Tapatalk?

    The forum wasn't working on my laptop for a brief time last night either, though it's working again now.

    Yeah, it's the FG% on shots defended by that player. It's not really significant though, there's a crazy amount of noise in it.

    There was a study done and basically it yielded that there was some very limited predictive value in at-the-rim DFG%, and for any shots outside of 3 feet of the rim, it's predominantly noise. It's a descriptive stat that tells you how well guys have shot over somebody, but really tells you very little about how well they've defended, with the usual very few exceptions at the extremes of the data-set (ie guys who stop everything tend to be very good, guys who stop nothing tend to be very bad, everyone in the middle tends to be largely indistinguishable).
    so in this stat jordan is the defender and opponents are hitting 63% on him and hitting 57% on jonas. i have noticed this year jonas seems to have found the best way to stay down and use his arms to "own" space to defend, especially in close.

    "His rim protection, too, is lacking: His defended field goal percentage is 62.7 per cent, significantly worse than Valanciunas’ at 57.1 per cent."

    what is the significance to this stat, and why is it better to have a lower number?

    appreciate the clarity
