That was definitely the best game of the season thus far. CJ and Harden having monster performances, Wood and Lillard also had good games, and it went back and forth.

> Trae Young was drawing cheap fouls and Steve Nash was tired of seeing it, not being able to do anything about it. Coach Nash had to have a word with this ref. Talk heavy coach. #WeGoHard - @Keith_McPherson

For context, Trae is averaging 15.5 FTA a game so far this season, and had 16 FTA in today's game vs the Nets.

> He says he doesn't think about being the first player taken. He'll be ready when the time comes, but "other than that, I don't even care."

> "To be honest," he says, "I can't watch basketball."

> He retells the story about the first time he dunked and how it signaled to him that he was talented and could accomplish something he might not have been able to in football, which was his first love. So that's the direction he went, simple as that, hanging up his cleats. "That's all I needed to see," he says.

> So when after that did he get into basketball?

> "I'm still not really into it," he says. "I love basketball, yeah. It's what I do."

> He's not entirely convincing. He says if he were drafted by the NFL tomorrow, he'd let basketball go. "Because you can do anything on the field," he explains. "You can spike the ball. You can dance. You can do all type of disrespectful stuff." In the NBA, he says, "you can't do any of that. You'll get fined."

> He goes on to say that he's an aspiring rapper. He's already recorded a few tracks with his older brother Bubba. So, like Damian Lillard? "But I really can rap," he says. "Dame, talking about -- I don't know what he's talking about. I'm rapping like Lil Baby." He says he won't release any songs until he's established in the NBA.

[OC]: How basketball reference/the NBA has taken away Larry Bird's only scoring title, robbed Elgin Baylor of an (even) greater place in history, and diminished the statistical accomplishments of Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf all based on extremely arbitrary and changing statistical qualifications

I will start off by recognizing that I have not always spent my time well.

In the 1960s NBA, the qualifications to be listed among the top scorers (in points per game) was between 60 and 70 games depending on the year. In 1961-1962, one had to play at least 65 of the available 80 games in the season to qualify for the points per game leaderboard. For those keeping score at home, one had to play over 80% of the total games to qualify. Elgin Baylor played 48 due to his part-time commitment to the U.S. Army Reserve that year, so he did not qualify. He scored 38.3 points per game that regular season; that figure would have been the highest non-Wilt scoring average of all time; instead that honor officially belongs to Michael Jordan.

In 1985, Bernard King won the scoring title over Larry Bird despite playing 54 of 82 available games. How? In the mid-1970s, a change was made so that one only needed to score 1,400 total points to qualify for the scoring leaders. Bernard King scored 32.9 points per game that year, an incredible figure for an incredible scorer. However, if he had averaged 38.3 points as Baylor did, it would have taken him 37 games to qualify for the 1,400 point threshold; Baylor played 48 games (scoring 1,836 total points), and could have played 64 games and still not qualified for the 80 game season in 61-62. I was failing to link the reddit username because there were some underscores that confused me, but thanks to the Meece guy on reddit for fixing that mistake.

Link to stat requirements: https://www.basketball-reference.com/about/rate_stat_req.html

Next, I would like to talk about the free throw percentage of Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, a guy who could score in heaps, protested the national anthem, and for whatever reason was out of the NBA less than two years later at 28. Basketball reference has put the requirement for attempted free throws for a career at 1,200. That seems like a very high number; it takes far fewer attempts for a player's numbers to start reflecting their true percentage. Also, Abdul-Rauf played 586 games, starting most of them, and only made 1,051 free throws. While his free throw rate was half of the league's, it was also twice that of someone like Lonzo Ball, and in line with someone like Steve Nash.

One might point out that on lists with statistical requirements, someone is always going to get left out. However, at a career 90.52% clip from t

[Kirschner and Amick] The basketball relationship between Trae and Lloyd Pierce continues to be worth monitoring, with multiple sources saying the disconnect between them remains an issue.

> For Pierce’s part, he has encouraged Young to continue growing as a vocal leader and said before the season that he felt there was progress on that pivotal front. But the basketball relationship between Young and Pierce continues to be worth monitoring, with multiple sources saying the disconnect between them remains an issue.

> But Young is not the only Hawks player who has been frustrated with Pierce at times, as multiple players have questioned his in-game decisions at various times since he was hired in 2018. In the loss to Cleveland on Saturday, the second unit blew an 11-point lead as the starters sat for seven minutes. Pierce was asked why he left the bench players in for so long and said he actually brought in the starters earlier than what he normally would in the fourth quarter.

> His answer speaks to another point of contention some players have with Pierce: a perceived lack of accountability in the media. On multiple occasions last season, Pierce’s penchant for saying the team had no energy and “didn’t compete” wasn’t received well by some players. The undercurrent, it seems, is a sense from some players that the coaching staff isn’t willing enough to share the responsibility on nights when they fall short.

> There’s significant pressure on Pierce to lead this team to the playoffs this season, especially with him stating in March that was the expectation — a comment that caught Hawks owner Tony Ressler by surprise, as it was not something the two had discussed. The fourth year of Pierce’s deal, a team option, has yet to be picked up. Yet after losing three straight games against perceived weaker opponents, a source with knowledge of the situation said Pierce is in no imminent danger.

[Sleeper AMA Series] I’m Baron Davis, entrepreneur, investor, filmmaker, and played a little basketball in my time. AMA!

We’re also excited to announce that Baron will be hosting a celebrity + fan fantasy basketball league on Sleeper using Sleeper’s new Game Pick format.

For those unfamiliar, Sleeper’s the fastest growing fantasy sports app (football, basketball, e-sports) in the market today. There’s a reason why Baron hosts all his leagues with us. It’s worth checking us out.

Edit 1: Baron's running a little late, we're planning on starting at 5:30 PM PST / 8:30 PM EST. Thanks for your patience!

Edit 2: Baron is coming from an appointment, we're hoping to get started around 6:30 PM PST / 9:30 PM EST. Hang tight!
