    Hassan is so lazy on guarding the open man on the swing. I'll be happy when Nurk comes back

    Gobert was out last game. Hassan did dominate him on the 1st but got dominated by Gobert the first time we played them 12/26. So he doesn't necessarily dominate Gobert. I do like what Hassan gives us though.

    And some posters want to trade him for less than what Drummond is worth... a second round pick.

    Yeah also for all of the talk that Hassan takes it to the hole and dunks more than Nurk, he takes a lot of bad shots and his shot is so much uglier than Nurk's. Tonight he was 3 for 8 and a few of his shots were weird line drives from outside 10 feet.

    Hassan is a better finisher than Nurk. That fact is undebatable.

    The bad shots are the ones that don't go in. Nurkic could learn from Whiteside, not the other way around,

    Yeah he is but Nurk is the better overall offensive player because he facilitates, sets better screens and is still a decent finisher even if Hassan is slightly better.

    Hassan is having an MVP caliber year. He is 9th in the league in PER. The players ahead of him in order: Giannis, Luka, Harden, AD, Dame, Kawhi, LeBron, and Jokic. That’s it. All of the players ahead of him are MVP candidates.

    Hassan Whiteside is #8 in the NBA in true shooting percentage at 64.2 percent. Obviously that is very good.
    Jusuf Nurkic ranked #60 in true shooting percentage last season. He was around #15 for centers. Whiteside is #4 for centers this season.

    My guess is they play it safe and keep em both out until after the break.

    wut?

    Nurk last season....Hassan this season

    FG%: Nurkic .508....Whiteside .613
    2ptFG%: Nurkic .513....Whiteside .614
    eFG%: Nurkic .510....Whiteside .615
    TS%: Nurkic .570....Whiteside .642
    FG% at Rim (0-3'): Nurkic .603....Whiteside .714
    FG% from 3-10': Nurkic .417....Whiteside .545
    FG% from 10-16': Nurkic .391....Whiteside .380
    FG% from 16-23': Nurkic .430....Whiteside .432
    % of FGA > Dunks:
    Nurkic .097....Whiteside .181

    it's almost a clean sweep for Whiteside, and most of the gaps are huge

    I swear, it just seems that some people decided early to hate Whiteside and believe all the negative chatter about him and amplify it, at the same time they are romanticizing how good Nurkic was

    I'm not taking sides, but do you have made attempts (per game) from 10-16' and 16'-23' to compare? I wonder if teams defend the two the same from distance.

    it's at bbref, but you have to dig a little for a player comparison. They have that for the team each years for instance:

    at bbref, you can organize by a column to get team rankings for a specific distance

    Without doing the exact math, it looks like Nurk takes less than 1 more attempt past 10ft than Whiteside. Not as big of a difference as I would've guessed.
