Dude is having a monster season, leading his team with Monta and he has been clutch. He wants to be an all star and i think he has to be a lock right? I mean as much as I want Jrue to make it, i think Brandon has to make it. He was named player of the week last week and hes getting his team in position for a top 6 seed in the east
Team Holiday. All day.
40% from the floor and < 6 asts a game is a monster season?
The average starting PG (or 25+mpg, having played at least 20 games) has a TS of 53.1% an assist rate of 26.8%, a PER of 16.9, an A/T ratio of 2.45
Jennings' line: 51 TS%, 22 AR%, 17.1 PER, 2.3 A/T
He also has a negative simple rating.
Looks like an average starting PG who has minimal, if any, positive impact on his team.
I honestly don't know, what is simple rating?
I hate player efficiency rating, if that's your argument, the NBA's assist leader.. Rajon Rondo barely has a higher PER than Brandon Jennings this year.(It's 1 point) and last year, Brandon Jennings actually had a higher PER than Rajon Rondo, and Joe Johnson if you want to throw that in, 2 All Star guards.
You can't use PER as your argument because if that's the case, half of the ALL-Stars in the league wouldn't be ALL-Stars. 18 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals, 85% from the line, and 36% from 3. His .405 field goal percentage is technically his only knock.
Now on stats I'd put Holiday in, but the Bucks do have a better record than the 76ers and like most gm's you wouldn't want to put a player from a losing team in the all-star game.
Out of Holiday and Jennings, I like Jennings more but I wouldn't mind if either made the ALL-Star game this year and I wouldn't mind if they didn't. I'm just mentioning that per comment for the point of a debate. Which it's really up for debate.
Before this year Carmelo had a horrible per, yet, there probably isn't 10 players you'd pick before him if you're starting a team.
And that's why I didn't just use PER.
A mark of a true scorer is efficiency. Is he efficient? No.
Ok, since he's a not an efficient scorer and he's a PG, he should make the all-star game based on the abilities usually associated with the PG position? Is he an above average playmaker, passer or floor general? No.
Ok, So maybe he's a special case where the numbers don't tell the whole story and his impact is greater than his numbers.
He's not that either.
There isn't a single good argument to be made that Jennings deserves to be a an All-Star other than the Bucks currently being in the playoff hunt and that they deserve to have a representative.
Sticking with this draft class. do you guy's think Steph Curry is a lock out west?
Did yall see B Jennings last night? smh
He's good, but not an allstar.
