Except for maybe the T-Wolves guys. But to be honest, how many of us have watched a lot of T-Wolves games. They get no attention. I would be open to the possibility that KAT is that good, or thereabouts, but hasn't gotten the attention he deserves.
I don’t watch the Twolves much either, but it’s hard to imagine they’ve got two top-6 players. Plus, they’ve got a guy who scored 24 ppg last year, the 12th-ranked player in RPM (lol) and some solid role players. Shouldn’t they be more of a threat?
I’m skeptical of averaging various metrics. Garbage results from one can lead to illegitimate results.
Metrics aside, Towns is putting up monster numbers. He's shooting less but he's shooting 59% from 2, 42%(!) from 3 and 86% from the line. His TS% is 65%.
And he's averaging 12 rpg, 2.5 apg, decent steals and blocks while being a decent defender.
I had no idea about the 3 point shooting until I looked it up. His shooting efficiency is crazy good.
As far as being a threat, OK. But for some reason they are letting Andrew Wiggins, who is shooting 44/32/63 and is a marginal defender at best, play like a #1C option instead of a #3 option. That might explain some of it.
