Thought this was interesting. His usage rate is actually barely below his career average.
4 points in usage rate is actually a lot. And his last 4 seasons in Orlando he was 4 up on what he is now. Though his health is a big factor
Just 3 of the last 4, no need to exaggerate.
You're right though, 4pts may not be completely meaningless, but it also not huge. Especially considering he's coming to a team with other scorers from a team literally built for him.
I just disagree that Dwights problems are due to touches.
Totally agree that his health still isnt there. I'll see flashes where he looks like his old self, but he's not back yet.
4 percentage points is HUGE. Why would you say it is not huge.
To put it in to perspective, the difference between Kobe's sophomore season when he came off the bench, played 26 mins/game and shot 11.6 times per game, and this season when he is just about leading the league in scoring, is 5.5 percentage points.
