[Singer] Nuggets coach Michael Malone said the team has a new stat this year: “The Hubie.” If an offensive player shoots it and doesn’t crash the glass or get back on defense, that’s a Hubie. In other words, per Malone, “If you’re not here, or there, where the **** are you?”

Andrew Wiggins is a better defender than Mikal Bridges

709 Upvotes

Rewatching the NBA finals and Wiggins defense on Tatum was fucking elite. I’ve shared these numbers before and it has me wondering why Bridges was a first team all defender and Wiggins got no consideration?

Mikal Bridges: 1.6 stocks / 5.9 contested shots / 46.1% opponent FG% / +0.9 DefRAPTOR

Andrew Wiggins: 1.7 stocks / 8.4 contested shots / 43.4% opponent FG% / +1.9 DefRAPTOR

(Wiggins also contested the most threes in the league this year. The two drew the same number of offensive fouls and grabbed the same number of defensive rebounds. Bridges has the edge in Deflections, though, 2.0 to 1.2)

The warriors had the second best defense in the league (albeit Phoenix was 3), even while draymond missed 33 games. Wiggins was the best defender on the team during that stretch. Confusing why bridges got all this attention during the season and Wiggins didn’t? Weird how narratives start but Andrew opened peoples eyes in the playoffs. Let’s hope the people that have voted start paying attention this year.

With the Seattle Mariners clinching a postseason berth for the first time in 21 years, the longest playoff drought in the Big 4 American leagues now belongs to the Sacramento Kings, who have not appeared in the postseason for 16 years.

Tonight, the Seattle Mariners defeated the Oakland A's 2-1, clinching their first playoff berth since 2001. In doing so, they ended the longest postseason drought in the big 4.

With the Mariners streak ended, the new owners of the longest drought are the Sacramento Kings, who have not appeared in the postseason since 2006. The Kings’ streak is not just the longest active drought in the big 4, it is also the longest drought in NBA history.

Is this the last year the Bucks can contend with Lopez/Jrue/Middleton as the main pieces around Giannis?

401 Upvotes

This is Jrue’s age 32 season

Middleton’s age 31 season

Lopez’s age 34 season

None of these guys are ancient but there’s also the issue that the Bucks don’t have many good young guys to develop to fill in the gaps. As we saw with the Warriors, you can definitely win with an older core, but you need younger guys to push you through the regular season and to develop for further contention. Poole and Wiggins were big parts of the Warriors run and led them in total minutes in the regular season.

The Warriors also have hope of contending for much longer imo since they have at least 3 young guys with pretty big potential on the roster to replace, for example, Klay if he falls off early.

Original Content [OC] LeBron James has never recorded 27/7/7 in a single game, but who actually has recorded a stat line matching their career averages in PTS/REB/AST?

Upvotes

A lot has been said about LeBron never actually recording his iconic 27/7/7 stat line. That got me wondering who actually has achieved that.

Turns out 4,373 games like that have actually been recorded, out of over 1.5M statlines ever recorded, about 1 every 330 stat lines. Most of those are, as you might imagine, end of bench guys who average 0/0/0 or 2/1/0 for their careers. I don't care about those games, and neither should you. So I arbitrarily whittled the list down to players whose career averages (rounded to the nearest whole number) add up to at least 16. This gave me a list of 1,014 games in which an at least semi-recognizable player recorded a regular season game exactly matching their career averages.

(Source: All data from basketball-reference, scraped using the Python package Beautiful Soup)

Who has recorded their average the most times?

Ben Wallace recorded his career average of 6 points, 10 rebounds, and 1 assist, a whopping nine (9) times in his 1088 game career.

Not far behind are:
- Taj Gibson: 7 games of 9/6/1/0
- Hakeem Olajuwon: 6 games of 22/11/2
- Allan Houston: 6 games of 17/3/2
- Brian Winters: 6 games of 16/3/4

Which of the elite stat-getters have done this?

Name # Avg Games Notes
Michael Jordan 0 The GOAT hasn't done it, whether you have MJ, LeBron, even Kareem or Russell at the top. MJ's 30/6/5 never actually happened.
LeBron James 0 The world is waiting. 27/7/7… make it happen LeBron!
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 0 25/11/4 could very well be called a Kareem, but he never had one.
Wilt Chamberlain 1 When in doubt, Wilt has done it. The all-time leader in career PPG+RPG+APG recorded his average of 30 points, 23 rebounds, and 4 assists on Jan 19th, 1960, halfway through his historic rookie campaign.
Bill Russell 0 11 rings, 963 career games, not one of them was exactly 15/22/4.
Shaquille O'Neal 1 While a member of the Miami Heat, the Big Santa dropped 24/11/3 on Christmas Day '04 in his first game back in LA since his trade from the Lakers.
Magic Johnson 2 Magic's career numbers of 20/7/11 were recorded twice, once in 1984 and once in 1989
Larry Bird 1 24/10/6 are some insane career numbers, much like Magic's. Bird's only game matching these stats came in the 1988-89 season, where he played only 6 games before ungoing surgery.
Hakeem Olajuwon 6 Hakeem dropped 22/11/2 on six different occasions. Pretty cool.
Tim Duncan 1 Tim Duncan's career averages of 19 points, 11 rebounds, 3 assists were only achieved on one occasion, on November 6th, 2010, at the height of the " Spurs are boring" era.
Kobe Bryant 0 Maybe this is why some people call Kobe the GOAT. He never once scored his iconic 25/5/5 in a game, just like the GOAT contenders at the top. I think I'm convinced now.
Kevin Durant 2 The Servant can sleepwalk his way to his career numbers of 27/7/4. He did it twice, one of them being in his 4th career game with the Sonics, the other in his last year with the Thunder.
Stephen Curry 1 24/5/7 has only been done once by Steph, it came right around the time the Warriors were starting to get real scary- January 2014.
Oscar Robertson 1 I just want to take a moment to acknowledge that career averages of 26 points, 8 rebounds, and 10 assists are incredible, no matter what pace they were played at. Big O did it once in 1964.

Other Current Stars:

Name # Avg Games Notes
Russell Westbrook 1 The triple-double king's lone 23/7/8 game came in 2014, while still working his way back from the knee injury suffered in the previous year's playoffs.
James Harden 2 25/6/7 is a pretty amazing career average for someone who spent years as a backup. The Beard recorded this statline twice while a Houston Rocket- in 2013 and 2016.
Giannis Antetokounmpo 0 Giannis has yet to record his 22/9/5 average in a game.
Luka Doncic 0 A little surprised Luka hasn't recorded his unreal career numbers of 26/9/8 in a game yet, he seems to be right around there an awful lot.
Nikola Jokic 0 A 20/10/6 might as well be called a Jokic… but the guy hasn't recorded one.
Kawhi Leonard 0 Kawhi's 19/6/3 is an interesting case, because he basically jumped straight from deluxe role player to star, and either average way more or less than 19/6/3 in a single season, never did it in a game either.
Chris Paul 1 CP3's incredibly consistent 18/5/10 throughout his career has been done on one occasion- with the Clippers in 2013-14.
Anthony Davis 2 Davis is pretty much good for his career numbers of 24 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, at any time, and he's done it twice- once in 2017 with the Pels, once last season with the Lakers.
Kyrie Irving 4 What does 23/4/6 mean to you? Kyrie got that statline four times while a member of the Cavs.

Who did this most recently?

Miles Bridges matched his career average of 13/6/2 and Dwight Howard recorded 16/12/1, each on April 7th, 2022. Both are un-signed right now for very, very different reasons.

The One-Hit Wonder

Believe it or not, a player with one career game played, actually managed to meet the PTS+REB+AST criteria. That man was Elijah Bryant of the Milwaukee Bucks in May 2021. Bryant recorded 16/6/3 (and played some garbage time playoff minutes en route to a ring) but hasn't played another regular season game, making that his career average. He is literally the best Bryant in NBA history based on only this criteria.

What should we do with this information?

I'm pretty sure this makes Ben Wallace the GOAT, with Taj Gibson as his runner up. Feel free to correct me.
