    ok bottom line ...whether this is a bad trade or not will depend on how he performs in the playoffs. ....only a week left !

    In other words..... Lin/Powell/OG effect >>> Gasol effect
    lol yeah never underestimate the destructive power (to us) of a Lin/McCaw/Norm/OG/Moreland on the floor at the same time!
    (he actually rolled that against the Pistons for a sizeable stretch)

    Well, you see, there are these minutes where Gasol has to sit on the bench.

    He had a +14 RTG in this one, pretty much in line with his time here thus far (which has been established as being caused by him playing almost exclusively with the starters since Ibaka kindly got suspended and allowed him to cement that role). Raps have not done a good job establishing a balance with their units. At this point, one can only hope they have a plan for the playoffs that they haven't revealed in the regular season.

    So, what happened vs. the Hornets. Are we no longer dominant with Gasol?

    Lmao at DanH deleting his original post after realizing what a bullshit argument it was.
    Wait, did one of my posts get deleted? I stand by any post I made. Certainly didn't delete it myself.

    There is definitely some positive regression at play. But several raptors have been quoted as saying Gasol's unselfish play is contagious. I think it's fair to say that could be helping the ball movement and in turn the shooting percentage while he's sitting too.
    Yeah, there are some clear leadership intangibles that Gasol is bringing in terms of team mindset. First off, there's the respect level he gets from Lowry, who doesn't cede that easily. And Gasol is also respected by Kawhi and Green from previous Grizz-Spurs battles.

    In terms of regression, 3-pt shooting would have probably improved anyway with JV, simply because of the screen setting, but the overall style of play would have still been problematic, i.e., Lowry and Kawhi would still be struggling to find on-court chemistry. Gasol is a guy everybody trusts and they give up the ball readily to him and they trust him to see over the defense and make smart plays from the high post. He's pulling the opposition center from the paint and opening up lanes for cutters and the overall passing mentality is making our shooters become shot-ready for in-rhythm jump shots. Very 2014 Spursian. Gasol has been the connector. The tradeoff is being soft AF in the paint on both ends of the court. Fingers crossed our new style will translate to the playoffs.

    JV added nothing to this team. He literally is a zero-impact stat padder. Same shit as DeRozan.
    Here's my twist on this post, which I realized is actually true, you don't add nothing to this forum, zero-impact post padder. Same shit as special1

    Inflating own ego, deflecting criticism. Exactly what Kobe Bryant would say.

    Yup. Even the AST% with him off the floor is higher than it was with the Raps+JV team. Gasol has brought a ball movement culture here and the whole team has bought in

    The Raptors are shooting 40% from 3 with Gasol on the bench since the trade deadline, and 43% from 3 with him on the court.

    Before the trade deadline they shot 34% from 3.

    People are confusing regression to the mean (as well as slightly better shot selection) with Gasol's impact. Gasol definitely has an impact - but it's not the difference between the early season shooting and the current shooting.
