    Thanks for pointing out the flaw in the naming of points/FGA, which does not just include FG, but also FT. As you noted, TS% is a better measure, and Meyers was 1st among Blazers for TS% with 61.6% for the Playoffs (and 67.5% for the season).

    TS%: Skal Labissere .716....Meyers Leonard .675
    FT Rate: Skal Labissere .316....Meyers Leonard .211
    Reb Rate: Skal Labissere 16.1%....Meyers Leonard 14.2%
    Assist Rate: Skal Labissere 11.9%....Meyers Leonard 11.8%
    Block Rate: Skal Labissere 3.8%....Meyers Leonard 0.8%

    It's the difference between shooting efficiency (eFG%) and scoring efficiency (TS%). They are both useful.

    Meyers Leonard’s wife was blaring Will Smith’s ‘Miami’ when he came home after getting traded to Heat.

    “When I came home after getting traded, I was in a little bit of shock,” Leonard said. “But my wife is ecstatic. She’s excited for a new opportunity. She’s excited for the sunshine. This is not a joke, I came in the house and she knew I was a little bit in shock and she was blaring Will Smith’s ‘Miami.’”

    He got traded to the best location in the NBA. I can understand why she's happy. I hope she has music ready for the next city. Who knows how long they'll be in Miami.

    Here's a good song in case they end up in Cleveland:

    doesn't matter

    that was a post to swish3 and in a swish3 discussion, sample size and context are irrelevant

    Yes! Sample Size! And you are comparing game 82 against SAC for Skal with the Playoffs including the WCF against GSW for Meyers. Skal was 0 of 2 for the Playoffs. Meyers scored 14 of 33.
    From your perspective, Skal would make 100% of his swish3s, including in the Playoffs. I hope that he can make 42%+, and that we earn a place in next season's WCF.

    I'm totally good with that, if, God PLEASE; Swish3 moves on from Meyers. Meyers Leonard isn't on our team anymore. Why are we still talking about him??? Let's talk about who is going to be our next swish3 hero....
