Why Tony Taylor is Perfect For the Knicks

Just heard a rumor about grunwald being interested in one tony taylor.


So I averaged all his stats and compared his stats to the average players in his position. This is Multi year.

Numbers are in %.

Pts FG FGA FG% 2Pt 2PtA 2P% 3Pt 3PtA 3P% FTM FTA FT% Off Def TOT Asts Stls Blks TOs PFs ws40 praws40
0.83 0.80 0.85 0.93 0.91 1.03 0.86 0.57 0.61 0.99 1.11 1.15 0.95 0.58 0.71 0.67 1.98 0.90 0.24 1.03 1.11 0.83 0.89


You can ignore the ws40 and Paws40 at the end if you want. It's just win score.

A brief glossary:

.83 means he is 17% below average in Points Scored.

As you can see, he's quite below average in everything defensive. And I mean everything.

However, he has a decent ft% AND he gets to the line 15% more than average. He's got twice the amount of assists and he has an average NCAA trey shot. Obviously, Grunwald wants to hedge bets in his point guard situation. Felton and JR aren't known for their consistent production. Jason Kidd is really great but his age is an issue. If you checked his history, his minutes and his production have been going down. Seriously, Nash is a freak.

With the defensive centers we have, we can afford to go after prospects like Tony Taylor whose defensive mistakes will be mitigated by our great centers.

He's no Jeremy Lin who was played a lot more well rounded and savvy but Tony's cheap, available, low usage, and has a decent stroke.

The ft% and 3pt% coupled with his low usage fga means he's perfect for Carmelo Anthony.

Check the video out.

As you can see he has trouble going left and he shows poor judgment on fast breaks. You see him making those points but going full speed on a fast break with a layup floater is not the play you want to see. (Floaters are incredibly hard) Watching his videos, you can understand why his finishing ability is 14% less than average.

Was that not a sick crossover or what?

If you ask me, Glen Grunwald is underpaid.
