HoopsHype Andrew Wiggins rumors

April 11, 2014 Updates

In transition situations alone, Wiggins is finishing at a rate of 62 percent with a 1.30 points per possession. The same video game efficiency is true on the other athlete stat – offensive rebound put-backs. Wiggins is converting 63 percent of the time at a 1.24 points per possession. The stats don’t lie: Wiggins not only is a superior athlete, but he also knows how to translate his athleticism to efficient production on the court, a skill that isn’t as easy as it may seem.

I’ve watched many Larry Bird games where he absolutely dominated the game and only ended up with 11-15 points. And I’ve watched many Carmelo Anthony games where he went for 35 and had next to no true impact on the game and his team lost by 15. Those are what I call empty points. Right now, Wiggins weighs heavily on the side of being an “Anthony” as opposed to a “Bird.” As the primary ballhandler in an offensive situation, Wiggins is only converting at a 0.79 points per possession and shooting a less than efficient 33.3 percent.
