    With Rose, the optics don't match the analytics

    Tommy Dee | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Instagram Truth be told, I've warmed up to basketball metrics over the years. I still hold them in the same manner I did when they first busted out on the scene and that is that they were conversation statistics that assisted in making an overall judgement.
