The Lakers made a crazy signing, filling the roster to 13 people at once. It can be said that they have basically completed 90% of their signings this summer, and the rest are minor repairs and leaks.
ESPN, the authoritative American media, predicted the team’s starting 5 Tigers next season based on the Lakers’ current lineup.
Starting lineup: point guard-Rondo, shooting guard-Danny Green, forward-James, power forward-thick eyebrow brother, center-Cousins. Kuzma did not appear on the Lakers' starting roster.
Danny Green, James, and Big Eyebrow must have missed the start. But Rondo and Cousins’ start is worth discussing.
Rondo’s rating in the fans’ minds has always been high, but according to data, Rondo’s influence on the game has notThe fans imagine it well.
The US media listed the Lakers’ new additions this summerOr the 9 players renewed last season's true positive and negative rankings. The true positive and negative value is a set of algorithms jointly researched by a group of psychology professors and mathematicians professors in a certain university in the United States, which can exclude the influence of teammates and opponents, and obtain the actual influence of a player on the game. It is considered to be one of the most reliable and valuable high-level data in the basketball world today. ESPN has used this set of data to score players since the 2013-14 season. With a large sample, this set of data is very meaningful.
Thick eyebrows Brother's true plus-minus +5.74 ranked first, and his statistic could rank seventh in the league last season. So why did the Pelicans all lose last season and there are no more pants left? The thick eyebrows can still occupy a place in the MVP selection. Because the high-level data of Brother Nongmei is really beautiful.
Danny Green +4.73, ranked 13th in the league;
Cousins +2.68, ranked 39th in the league;
Dudley 0.09, ranked 116th in the league;
Caruso +0.06, the league’s151 place;
Pop-0.77, 209th in the league;
Elixir-2.20, league No. 371;
Mckey-2.33, 386th in the league;
Rondo-3.76 , 474th in the league.
McGee has repeatedly played shocking numbers last season, but his true plus/minus value can only be ranked in the middle and lower reaches of the league, which is why Although his data is very beautiful, one of the reasons why his wind evaluation has not been improved.
And Rondo’s true positive and negative value is even higher than McGee’s. Not as good as it is almost at the bottom of the league, which surprised many people.
In fact, since ESPN used the real positive and negative data to evaluate players, Rondo’s true positive and negative values have not looked good, only One season is positive (+0.3), the other seasons are all negative. Last season, Rondo wasIn the games, the Lakers averaged 9.4 points more per game in 100 rounds. It is not too much to say that the stadium is cancerous.
But here are a few words to justify Rondo. Rondo’s true positive and negative values in the regular season have a sharp eye, but his true positive and negative in the playoffs The value is very attractive. Whether in the Bulls or the Pelicans, Rondo's playoff performance is remarkable.
And last season, the Lakers lineup was aimed at Rondo. All of them are ball players, and no one wants to shoot three pointers. Often when Rondo takes the ball at the top of the arc, his opponents have all been retracted into the basket. It was very embarrassing to make Rondo pass or cast.
But anyway, last season, Rondo, who was at the bottom of the league in true plus-minus, can next season support the Lakers' starting point guard aspiring to the championship? Perhaps the answer can only be given by time.
The good news for Rondo is that the Lakers have added a lot of shooters to the current lineup, and the thick eyebrows and Cousins at the basket are both pick and roll gods. This is the most comfortable configuration for Rondo who is good at communicating and not casting. And Brother Nongmei, Kaoshen and Rondo have all worked together in Pelicans, and the chemical reaction of the three will be much faster.
If , If Rondo still can't control the position of the Lakers' starting point guard, doesn't the Lakers have another trick? Let James play the point guard.
