So basically what you are saying is you haven't actually watched him play.
i have seen a handfull of nuggets games. i enjoy watching them when they're on tv (and i watched all of their games when nba pass was free)
he's not doing that well this year. he's regressing by almost every statistical measure (his turnover rate has slightly decreased)
Most of the plays Faried makes aren't measured by stats.
like what? he's not that good at defense
Oh and FYI its normal for a player's rate stats to go down when they first start playing more minutes.
his usage rate hasn't increased enough to offset this, also
his stats are also inflated due to the system denver runs
