One of the most controversial episodes of the current NBA season is the extent to which observers deny that Zach LaVine is praised for his outstanding offensive performance with the Chicago Bulls.
Although he averaged 29.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists according to statistics, according to Synergy Sports, his efficiency numbers put him in the 86th percentile in the league, but he is often fired because of the players Contributed a good number in a bad team. Although the Bulls are indeed far away from competitors, and although they are much better than most people think they are going into this season, LaVine is just generating empty calories and there is no hint.
Consider the above efficiency figures. As pointed out in the “Bulls Gold”
However, perhaps just as importantly, the guard contributed to Chicago’s progress in becoming a champion team. In the share of offensive wins before LeBron James tied with Luka Docic, LaVine ranked 15th in the league, and LaVine raised the Bulls from a possible position near the bottom of the Eastern Conference rankings to a team. Currently planning to participate in the “match” team-in” playoff games.
Even on the defensive side, LaVine has shown real improvement, at least the league average. Although he still loses the ball, takes turns taking turns and cannot predict the intention of the offense, the defender tightens the screws at the screen and is reluctant to rely on his athleticism to steal the ball. In most cases, he lost his position in the past. Although he may never qualify for the national defense team, the defender’s efforts can at least ensure that he will not hurt the Bulls on the court and further improve the impact of scoring on the game results.
Although it is difficult for LaVine to get a place in the All-Star team’s reserve team, the fact is that his performance this season shows that the player should be qualified as a starter rather than an add-on. Although media coverage lags behind his performance, due to the inconsistency of the Bulls roster and their lackluster overall victory, Chicago may finally establish a consistent winner under the leadership of Arturas Karnisovas. If they do, the rest of the league may eventually wake up to the rapidly developing talents of their chief guard.
Zach LaVine (Zach LaVine) not only showed that he is an All-Star, but also proved that he is the league’s most valuable player.
