So, now that the season has progressed and we have a significant sample size of data to compare a certain cadre of point guards, I thought I would look at Assist to turnover ratios and how they have improved...or not over the course of the season. This is not meant to be an all-encompassing comparison between these three (to remain nameless) point guards.
I will start off by saying that I would think it to be a fair assumption that a rookie point guard should have a mostly improving assist to turnover ratio as they learn more about their teammates and can make better decisions on where to and where not to pass the ball in given situations.
|Last 2 full months||1.88||1.86||2.98|
First, October and February data only covers 2-4 games or so and therefore need to be taken with a grain of salt.
I think it is fair to say that Player C is by far the best facilitator of the bunch as he has drastically improved his decision making over the course of the season. I think Player A started out as a better facilitator, but hasn't really improved in that regard. Considering that these are rookies, I would go so far as to say that is a poor indicator about a player’s natural instinct for the point. Player B has improved very nicely as the year has progressed and while just catching up to where player A is, has actually shown an ability to improve.
FYI, the total and last two full months are weighted so they do not overly rely upon October and February data.
So, who do you think is who? Mind you that one is our very own Jonny and the others were available with our pick(s).
