Bro the rule changes k!lled the iso game 2, the game know is based off ball movement, elbow jump shot, n the three, all which plays into ad hands
That's why he's my power forward if I'm building a team. He's just not my franchise guy. He can be my #2, but I need a guy who can get his own, unassisted shot in crunch time. A Kobe, a Melo, a wade, a prime manu, parker, a cp3, a Steph, a Westbrook. ADs not gonna lead his team to post season wins as the go to player. He's like if Karl Malone couldn't get his own shot.
I wanted to mention this as well... It's my personal theory that there's a reason guys can put up crazy stats and still lose. It's perhaps because the buckets they score are buckets that anyone can score, they're not buckets that only an elite player can get. Example, when a lot of your buckets come in transition, off a.ssists, it's a setup play that gives the finisher a clean look, that a lot of guys can convert. But when dudes manufacture a score they get points that no one else on their team could create. In other words, AD hogs the easy looks, and isn't involved in converting on his teams tough looks.
Player A scores 20 points off 10 layups.
Player B scores 10 points off 5 tough jumpers.
Player Bs teammates scored the layups that player A scored, but player A had no teammates make any tough jumpers. Player Bs team has more points.
I need to research this more, but I think Kevin love was similar to AD offensively in minn in the sense of hustle buckets not translating to wins.
