Quick pull-up: Kyrie & Friends

10/21/2012

 

Below youíll find a table regarding Kyrie Irving & his floor mates from last season.  The top row features Kyrieís numbers from his 1558 minutesónothing too new or exotic, but you should note Team Offensive Rating of 106 with him on the floor.  Thatís an excellent number.  Team Defense with Kyrie on the floor was bad, allowing 111 points per 100 possessions.   The two numbers together describe a team that would be outscored 101-96 in an average gameónothing unprecedented for a rookie on a lottery team.   Kyrieís q AST%, the percentage of a playerís field goals that are assisted, was 31%.  Thatís a pretty typical mark for a point guard. Feel free to compare it to Chris Paulís career 16% (the lowest of any player in the past 10 years), or Derrick Roseís 30%.

The rest of the table shows in descending order who played minutes with Kyrie and what their individual stats (and team ratings) looked like for only those minutes.  For example, Antawn Jamison was on the floor during 90% of Kyrieís minutes, Anthony Parker for 60%, and so on.  The stats become increasingly meaningless as the sample size shrinks, but you can see the the principle rotation players coach Scott used with Irving.  A natural drop-off looks to be Boobieís 266 minutes, down from Tristanís 524.  Donald Sloan had a PER of 24 in 10 minutes on the floor with Irving.  Superstar!

The most important thing this table says regards a couple of old men. After Kyrie Irvingís 1558 minutes there are 4 open slots of 1558 minutes apiece.    Jamison and Parker accounted for 37% of these minutes, and both guys are off the roster.  Thatís a lot of minutes to replace and the Knicks have cornered the market on old basketball players so the Cavs will have to look elsewhere.  Anthony Parkerís career certainly reached the end of its rope, though.  His very low 13% Usage Rate pegs him as either a defensive specialist (Ö) or a shooting specialist.  He failed at both.  Jamison leaves behind a complex legacy of minutes and shots.  Many of the minutes will go to Tristan, and I already wrote a few words about what his production should look like running the floor with Kyrie this season.  But Antawn vacates a prominent offensive role, worthy of more words than this post can handle.
