I hadn’t seen these numbers before.You keep saying this and it's been shown to be false. For instance, here's this season: https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/i/irvinky01/on-off/2019
At some point will folks in charge here ask this poster to support this with evidence? Or do we have to watch him post the same things over and over?
Here’s the net on-off for the eight guys who played at least 45% of the team’s minutes. (This excludes guys like Baynes, Theis, and Wanamaker who put up good numbers but either missed loads of time to injury or were used very selectively.)
A few observations:
— Kyrie wasn’t obviously our best player.
— SoSH’s griping about MaMo was justified.
— Smart wasn’t as good as I thought, but that could be a product of who he played with.
— Hayward’s numbers are surprisingly good for a guy who was working his way back into shape for much of the season and played a lot of minutes with the second unit.
— You would expect Terry’s number to be negative because he played so many second-unit minutes, but damn, he was apparently even worse than he looked. Certainly seems to vindicate those of us who thought trading him for essentially nothing would be addition by subtraction.

Thought this might be worth a thread.
