    Another fun 82games.com stat...

    Rodney has 21 And1's on the season. That's tied for 15th in the league overall despite the limited playing time for the first 14 games of the season.

    The only non-big men that are ahead of him: Lebron, Wade, Devin Harris, and Paul Pierce. (He has 1 less than Pierce). He's got more than Kobe, Chris Paul, AI, even bigs like KG, Dirk, Gasol, etc. (ahem, Chauncey has 8).

    Also note worthy that Stuckey shoots 44.8% on 2 point jumpshots (layups not included). 2nd best on the Pistons is Sheed @ 42.9%. FYI, Chauncey is shooting 39% on those.

    you know, given the nature of all this new stuff, you know, I-I-I-I... this could be a-a-a-a lot more, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, complex, I mean, it's not just, it might not be just such a simple... uh, you know?

    New information has come to light...

    It's weird that Shaq is also ahead of him. Those must be 1 inch outside the paint.

    Also surprising, Jameer Nelson leads the league. And Pau Gasol is in 4th.


    One other stat that isn't so good for us. Stuckey gets fouled on a higher % of his shots than any other player on our team, yet there are 49 players in the league that get fouled on a higher % than him. Most of the guys at the top of the list are big men. The top 15 are pretty much all the league's best big men with D. Harris snuck in there.

    Sheed is behind AI, Rip, Tay, you name it. There are only 20 in the league that get fouled less frequently.


    Maybe he needs to draw some more fouls instead of fading away on the post moves?

    It says Sheed takes 44% of his shots from 3-point land, 44% of his shots are 2-point J's, and 11% are in the paint. Since he averages 11 shot attempts per game, than means that on the average night, he takes a little over 1 per night inside.

    I'm pretty sure I'm preaching to the choir here, so I won't belabor it.

    Anyone else picturing Amir going all Jack Nicholson in Curry's office?
