“We made the Rudy trade to see where we would be,” says Masai Ujiri, the team’s GM. “Are we gonna break it all down? That’s where luck comes in. We all walk around thinking we’re geniuses, but in this business, you need that Lady Luck.” Ujiri never imagined then that the Raptors would be battling for the East’s no. 1 seed midway through this season. “I don’t think anybody saw it coming.” Lowry agrees. “Not in my wildest dreams,” he says.

Kings officials analyzed six years of data, including positional data provided by SportVu cameras, to determine the ideal setting for Gay to thrive. What they found, perhaps not surprisingly, was that Gay thrived playing with a dominant low-post scorer, as he had in Memphis. The Kings then applied the data to create a model of what a Cousins-Gay pairing would look like. "We came to the conclusion that on our team, Rudy was going to still score the same number of points, but he was going to do it with five fewer shots," Ranadive said. "And his efficiency as a player would go up substantially." Bleacher Report

And amid this newfound dedication to passing and smarter shot selection, Gay is also averaging a career high in scoring at 21.1 points per game. "I think his game is so much more mature now," said Brooklyn Nets coach Lionel Hollins, who coached Gay for most of his career in Memphis. "He's making plays for people that he always had the ability to make, but he's not feeling the pressure that he has to go and make the play for Rudy Gay." Bleacher Report
