We are unveiling a new pregame series at Project Spurs, where Quixem Ramirez dives into the Spurs' opposing team's SportVU data, mostly because he has no life. SportVU, powered by cameral technology in all 29 NBA arenas, tracks miles per hour, distance traveled, touches, where they touched the ball, how long they touch the ball, and lots of other basketball minutiae.
Today's team: the Oklahoma City Thunder. DISCLAIMER: If you do not like numbers, do not read ahead.
Something, something, Kevin Durant is good at basketball.
2012-13: 38.5 minutes, 28.1 points, 7.9 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 51 percent shooting, 28.3 PER 2013-14: 38.5 minutes, 28.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 45.5 percent shooting, 27.2 PER
I'll keep this short. Durant is very good at basketball, and he's getting to the line 12.5 times per game. Just absurd. Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor and Shaquille O'Neal are the only players who have averaged more than 12.5 free throw attempts in one season.no comments
