And yet he still ranked 8th in the NBA in Assist:Turnover ratio
Ding ding ding. Context
Anyone that handles the ball as much as he did this year is going to have high turnovers. The issue is that the rest of our team sucks way too hard, so his usage is higher than it should be.
Even Ryan Anderson is pretty incapable of creating his own shot effectively in isolation. He shoots more set than jump shots and doesn't have the super high release like Dirk, so he can be contested. Gordon was good in spurts, but also a nightmare at times. Rivers were starting to get it and Roberts has definitely improved lately, but Vasquez carried most of the burden.
