too bad these numbers means nothing.
look at durant post up? who knew lol.
You need to describe your charts in greater detail.
Yea, I'm an engineer, but I also don't have time to decipher esoteric meanings.
Tell me what this means, what that means, then we can talk.
Bottom line: describe the god-damn charts you cite.

JR should play 44 minutes so he can hoist up 25 shots...this way he will score 12 points a game,,,,,
So in other words this is like sabermetrics for basketball?
Was a bit of a handful at first, and you need to put your subsequent explanation above the graph for clarity.
Having said that, I get it. It's basically the tell tale statistics of what we've been whining about all year.
I'd much prefer to see split graphs detailing the differences between the Knicks throughout the season's 3 separate stages: Pre-Linsanity, or 'the pestilence' let's say - During Linsanity (when D'Antoni ball reigned in the absence of STAT and Melo, albeit against some weaker teams with the exclusion of Dallas and LAL) and the third and final stage being throughout Woodson's interim reign.
Only then would I really be able to analyze with any real sense of certainty, or at least more of a sense of certainty.
Basically, it's water under the bridge. Next season I think that Knick fans here on KO will elude to whatever issue we have and the stats will just be the advocate for that/them. ISO ball can be effective for us, but we all know that it spells doom for our offense far too often.
Woody has his work cut out for him to get this offense working. Defense, on the other hand, should be the focal considering the arsenal we have on the other end.
As much as I appreciate Melo, I also agree that our current strategy of isoball with Melo offense is really crappy. Defensive-wise, Woodson has done a good job, but his method of offense is really hurting our team. If we don't fix this, we're not going to reach semifinals next playoffs
Personally, I wouldn't invest emotionally.
I think these STATS are far more representative of the Knicks this year, under Mike Antoni:
