OK now I see that is ranking each lineup  and not each team so each team may have a few lineups out there.

 

YEa, OKC's lineup is not top 3, it may be top 3 because you say (with 500 plus minutes played) and this will or can eliminate a lot of starting lineups who don't get 500 plus minutes.

 

 

YOu can make a stat say anything if you put the correct limit on it, ESPN does this all the time.

 

"1st White Rookie to score 20/10/5" would be impressive and seem like an accomplishment, until they add "before the 4th to last game before All-Star Break, in the modern era" then you are like, man what he did probably happens all the time or has happened before

 

 

point is, Thunder is not a top 3 defense no matter how you slice it, I'm off it though

I've always hated those made up stats & records. Who keeps track of "best record through 47 games" or "most receptions in a WR's first 13 games"?

 

I guess it's just to compare current players & teams to all time great players & teams but idk.. :rolleyes

The stats I'm using aren't to prove that they would best GSW or SAS in a 7 game series. I agree that he won't be playable. 

What I typed, was a long winded way of saying A-friend isn't gripping how important he is to their success thus far this season. I'm not putting any of that barring however, on how they'll perform against the elite in the playoffs. But over the course of 82? He's absolutely been vital to their great season thus far.

Agreed.

Spurs have improved (Kawhi, LA) and gotten worse in spots (Parker, etc. not the same as they were in year's past).
They eliminated them on their home floor 2 years ago without Tony Parker. Ibaka had returned by then.

It's like how ESPN confused everybody when the Bulls and Warriors played by saying, 1st time two MVPS have ever faced off.

 

 

Dudes were like what? Man this is groundbreaking, I must watch.

Let it also be noted, that there are only 3 lineups in the entire NBA who have played more than 500 minutes together, of course there aren't 5 teams with a better dfrtg.

 

So yes, Thunder is top 3 in that regard. #1 of 3 teams who qualify

You could run the numbers for 200 minutes and it's the same. Now it's up to you to decide how real that number is. Are they just feasting on bad teams? Are they getting lucky? Is that lineup fresher? Is it that the alternatives (dion, morrow, etc.) are just that bad? Doesn't mean the numbers are 100% useless.

It means SOMETHING because the same exact lineup with anyone else but him is awful defensively.

It means something in that he may be their best defensive option, I'm not arguing that. Best option is just that, best option(defensively), doesn't mean good, just better than the backup.

 

Run the numbers for 200 minutes or any minutes as you say and this does not make them a top 3 def rated team even then.

 

He does not make up their best lineup. He may make up their best "defensive" lineup, that I won't argue. 

 

But add that best defensive lineup to the other side of the ball for offense and he is not part of the Thunders best lineup.
