      Correct me if I'm wrong...that's like 144.6 points per 100 possession. Maybe doesn't account for turnovers but also doesn't account for and 1s and rebound put backs. But yeah, he's not a good 3rd option

        I feel like this tweet could've been from 2013 and I'd still believe it.

          135 points per 100 when turnovers are taken into account.

            • I find it hard to imagine that any other coach in the league wouldn't take JV and ram the ball into the low post time after time until the opposition doubles him and even beyond for kick-outs.

                  Especially against teams with no good defensive Cs *cough* Warriors *cough*.

                    10th most touches would sound like a lot, but only because it's the new era where posting big guys up isn't prevalent. If he is indeed #1 in converting those, then he should also be #1 in the amount of touches he averages. Let's also remember that he's a good FT shooter and pretty good at drawing fouls (he pretty much has that 'Pau scream of pain' down pat), so there's added value to posting him up that stats don't reflect.

                    To me good coaching isn't about chasing the new trends (Warriors smallball etc.), but maximizing the strengths of your current personnel. The Raps can't really emulate Warriors' style of play because they do not have that kind of a roster. However, they can always search for other effective ways to exploit defenses of their opponents, such as increasing JV's offensive usage heavily against certain favorable matchups, IMO.

                      Raptors arent trying to copy the Warriors. They play do thier strength. Which is there guard play.

                        but they aren't playing to their strength. if they were, JV inside would be part of a balanced offence.

                          Thier two best players are K Low/Deebo. They feature them more. JV is the 3rd best so he gets the 3rd most shots. I'll say it again offence is not the issue with the team. Every game we are scoring enough to win but, were not getting enough stops every game.

                            #1 post player. 14.4 ppg 10 reb on 57% shooting. 82% from free throws. You STILL don't think there's room to make 3 all stats here, like every other contender?

                              Pretty sure if you took away tips and put backs valanciunas would have less shots than Ross carroll and 2pat

                              Edit: per 36 minutes, minus tip ins and put backs, he's behind ross carroll 2pat joseph and Powell. But still the 3rd highest ppg by a fair margin above that group. And they all shoot 3s

                              Soo yeah I'd say he's fairly efficient and could take on more for the better of the team

                                You misinterpreted/misunderstood me. I'm not saying Raptors are copying the Warriors. I just described what I think good coaching is.
