 Actually, I thought of looking at points, TS% and turnovers. I do love to graph in three-dimensions or even more than that. I was going to do an updated graph and analysis of 40 point or more games broken down by TS% and TOs after the season officially ended, although I do include playoffs.

I really love the frontier line. I've been referencing that chart when looking at LeBron and Durant's TS%. I did something similar with points and TS% for single games, and there's also a frontier line there. Except that there are two lines: one on the right for limiting efficiency and one on the left for a limit of inefficiency, as guys who aren't shooting well won't shoot enough to score more points.

 @ou_sas No idea you saw it on the RSS, or that anyone did. Glad you liked it.

 

This is just such a big and intriguing trade it's fun to discuss. I can't wait to see how this plays out, but to console Thunder fans I can say I'm a Blazers fan.

I played around with some numbers and came up with a reduction in 5.3 wins for losing Harden. This is a rough estimate, but it'll only get worse with each year as Harden gets older. 

 

The question is, what moves do they make now? Kevin Martin is an expiring contract. Perkins is still making big money. They have some assets now in draft picks, Lamb, Perry Jones, etc. Do they just build with these young pieces or trade for assets? Seems that they'll have to stay with what they have because of the tax, but they may not be done.

This is a little silly because PER is a function of usage, and many factors of PER have nothing to do with shooting. I'd rather see a chart comparing usage and TS%.
