Interesting article on Melo in this week’s SI. Unfortunately the analytics mentioned are unreasonable. The article suggests that by the numbers Melo has not helped theKnicks much. Take a look at how the Knicks play with players in or out.
|Anthony and other in||10.67||4.65||13.47||12.67||12.63||13.82||10.75||4.65||10.08||18.08|
|Anthony out and other in||dnp||-1.83||1.14||-3.02||1.04||-1.59||-4.63||-1.24||-4.23||-3.80|
|Anthony in and other out||dnp||14.52||-0.11||7.22||8.06||9.07||10.51||11.27||10.80||10.19|
|Anthony out and other out||-3.05||-3.72||-7.09||-3.06||-7.13||-7.36||2.11||-3.56||-1.73||-2.59|
So with Melo and Chandler in Knicks play 13.47 ppg better than average but with Melo out and Tyson in Knicks only play 1 ppg better than average. Look at these numbers and tell me how Melo has not been very valuable this year!!!!!!!
