Also making an appearance in the league’s top 30 turnover machines are small forward Rudy Gay (2.6 per game) and point guard Darren Collison (2.5), ranked 25th and 29th respectively among qualified players. Gay has been a culprit of too many dribbles, while Collison has been guilty of forcing feeds. But to be clear, this has been a team-wide epidemic. “Turnovers, basically, I tell them all the time, don’t be Magic Johnson,” Karl told the media after his first practice. “Just be a good basketball player. And good basketball players don’t make bad decisions. Make good, solid decisions, don’t try to make the Magic Johnson pass, because that’s when I think instead of throwing a pass that gets made 98 percent of the time, which it should be, we throw passes that have a 60/40 ratio, and that’s not even good for a quarterback in football.” Cowbell Kingdom

“You have to commend him. I think what happened this season has been a shock to everyone. He has handled himself like a professional. Came in and did what he could,” Gay said of Corbin. “Obviously, it’s hard not to hear about it. And to be around it. But he’s been great about it. He’s been very, very in tune with the game and tried to get these wins.” Washington Post

“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
