^Hollinger= Support any team Lebron is on..
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Wow, seriously? I think that's kinda proof he's a LeBron fanboy masquerading as an unbiased observer.

Miami could very well be 8-7 soon because they have to play in Orlando on Wednesday night. What's he going to say then?

is Tyreke Evans a PG or an SG? I think he's more of an SG who's forced to play PG, he would be so much better if he had someone like a Kirk Hinrich in the backcourt with him

not really a "thought" but today while watching the fsn clippers game, for the starting lineups they said wes johnson on the wolves (that was the correct player) but for some weird [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers.

Assist to turnover is supposed to be an indicator of ball handling ability and/or effectiveness as a playmaker.

The number of plays you create (AST) versus the number of plays you botch (TO).

i guess but steal-tunrover seems like it would be a good stat for the nba in general, not just guards

why?

steals and turnovers are completely independent of each other. steals are on defense, turnovers are on offense. and steals itself isn't a good representation of defense.

because only (point)guards average above like 6 or 7 assists, except for like lebron, kobe, etc. everyone gets turnovers. dwight is among the league leaders. most of the time, turnovers are caused by steals. it isn't a comparison of a good defender and secure ball player to a bad defender and an out of control person. it's more like you make a mistake by turning it over and your opponent gets a fast break opportunity, it's more like can you make up for the turnovers you commit?
so often on halftime reports you see turnovers and points off of them. a good majority are fastbreak points because the turnover was a steal. steals and turnovers are pretty much opposites.

yeah
you're going to need to rewrite that. i don't understand what your point is.

the objective of the AT ratio is to measure the efficiency of a ball handler's play making ability and his ball control. a player who has 9 assists and 4 turnovers probably is not as careful or as someone who has 9 assists and 2 turnovers. his TOs can be caused by bad passes or poor ball handling when attempting to create a play for his team.

if player A has 4 steals and 4 turnovers and player B has 4 steals and 6 turnovers, what exactly are you trying to conclude from this? other than player B having more turnovers, what can you conclude when comparing the steals to TOs?

My other posts said that it's a universal stat for not just ball handlers. You can't "conclude" that player A is "X" better than player B or something like AT. I don't really know what to say because you can't say a specific thing because they are on the opposite side of the ball yet they are almost the same thing. Kind of like a missed shot and a rebound. Like a good stat would be rebounds per game, not including free throws. Because a free throw rebound is a given. It's kind of like a TO is bad and you make up for it with a steal.
