Fun question from Dan Filowitz of The Disciples of Clyde:
This year, I'm averaging 25.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists, on 47.5% from the field, 90.6% from the line, and 38% from three. My PER is 22.5, my True Shooting % is 56.3%.
And yet, you don’t hear me talked about very often.
This isn't the first time I've put up good numbers. I've been to the last eight All Star games. I've won an MVP. My career averages are 22.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and a PER of 23.8.
And still, I'm not getting on the cover of magazines, or slobbering Internet coverage, or widely-viewed YouTube mixes.
I'm not doing this all for a crap team. My team has just about 40 wins, and is most likely going to make the playoffs. Again.
Any idea who it is?
Here's one more hint: "Matt Barnes cannot play me one-on-one, Alvin Gentry!"
