    Defenders are not allowed to be in the paint for more than three seconds if they are not within arms' reach of an opposing player. So JV could sit in the paint all day so long as he is credibly defending an opponent for at least a split-second in each 3 second block (ie if he never goes three straight seconds both in the paint and not defending an opponent).

    Offensive three in the key is independent of opponents - can only be in there 2.9 seconds without clearing the paint.
    thank you.

    • Very curious whether, if Lowry walks, Nando would want to come be a starting PG for the league average. Anyone know his buyout situation?

        No idea. There was no mention of an NBA buyout when he signed his three year deal a year ago.

        • Not sure where to ask this question, but could a box score be added to the after game quick reactions on the main page? Seems silly that this information isn't available without having to go to another site.

              Yup there's something wrong with the website.

                Chaos. Calamity.

                Fix it! Oh for the love of all things Raptor-related. Fix it!

                • "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

                    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.
