Progress of the F5!

Welcome one, welcome all, to another one of my fanposts!

Today I will be analyzing this season to see how each of our F5 (BBHFK) have progressed throughout this season.

I have split the season so far into 4, 18-game segments to represent our 72 games so far. I have also broke down each of these quarters into the games that were played against winning record teams, and teams .500 and below.

Unfortunately, I only did basic stats and no advanced stats because this was already becoming quite time consuming without having to use advanced stats equations for certains segments of the season. But I believe these stats should give enough of a feel for how each of our players have progressed.

Another major aspect to note from this data is that the first quarter of the season was much harder than the other quarters due to playing 14 >.500 teams during this stretch as opposed to 9, 10, and 10 times for the other quarters, and also having JL3 starting for most of these games as well.

Without further adieu!

Hayward has been given the most consistent minutes of any of our core 4 (now F5) for his 4 year career and now this season.

He is steadily averaging 36 minutes this season. His shooting has been up and down this year, but he's worked on going from a guy who shoots better against only bad teams (37 vs. 42 FG% in the first 18 games vs. good and bad teams, respectively) to being more consistent as of late (46 FG% vs. good and bad teams in most recent 18 games).

He appears to be a consistent 15-16 PPG guy in this environment as a 1st/2nd option. I'm a fan of his improved assists this year of hovering around 5 assists all year, but he needs to work on cutting down his 3 turnovers per game. His plus/minus has been pretty bad but that's because our team is losing a lot this year.

His free throw shooting has gotten worse lately as well as his rebounding.

Overall, Hayward had appeared fairly consistent overall in production this year but with improved shooting as of late standing out to me.

I'm glad we have a good idea of who we have in Hayward now, an ideal 3rd option glue guy who probably shouldn't be paid much more than $10-12 million per year.

Derrick Favors has made me very happy this year, especially with him playing with the least financial motivation this year since Hayward, Burks, and Kanter all could get offers/extensions this summer as opposed to Favors who has his next 4 seasons locked up.

Favors plus/minus impresses me for the most recent 3 quarter due to it being the top or near the top of the F5 for all but the first quarter. This goes to show how big of an impact Favors makes on the court to me, despite this losing season.

Derrick Favors' shooting hit a snag in the 3rd quarter where he was also dealing with injuries besides then, he is a solid 50-55% shooter. His free throws have also wavered from 65-75% throughout the season.

His recent dip in rebounds concerns me slightly, hopefully this is due to Kanter grabbing more now, we'll see later on.

I'm pleased with Favors being in the 1+ Steal and 1.5+ Block crowd in this most recent quarter. Shows me some good defensive improvement.

Favors did good at taking care of his turnover problem that he had early on, decreasing from 2.4 to 1.5 turnovers per game now.

I'm also pleased that Favors is averaging 13 points per game fairly consistently, not too shabby for a defensive big man.

By the eye test, Burks' development has impressed me this season, let's see what the numbers say.

First off I would like to say that I am pleased that Burks' minutes have steadily increased from 26 to 29 MPG this season, I hope that trend continues.

Like his minutes Burks' FG% has impressively increased steadily from 37% to 48%, HOLY SMOKES!

3 Point shooting is up and down. He is shooting more free throws but also at a lower percentage.

Burks has been a 3 rebound, 3 assist man for the most part this year. Decent for a elite slashing guard such as Burks.

His scoring this 2nd half has pleased me as well (about 15 ppg, vs 12 ppg for the first half).

Nice work Burks, I would be extremely pleased if Burks could be locked in this summer for $10M per year or less.

Kanter has had a rollercoaster season, being held in the doghouse for the middle 2 quarters bookended by higher minutes at the beginning and end.

That 2nd quarter were Kanter's minutes were only 22 MPG as opposed to 30 MPG really correlated with a decrease in performance (40 FG% vs 45-56 FG% the other 3 quarters)

As of this quarter he should still work on his offensive efficiency as working on his effectiveness against teams with winning records.

Averaging 12 points and 9 rebounds this quarter is starting resemble the player I knew Kanter to be this year, I believe he can up that to 16 and 11 as early as next season.

My hunch from earlier was correct, Kanter's rebounding increased from about 7 to 9 in the most recent 18 games which led to Favors decreasing from 9 to 7.5. Play nice Big Men.

If I had to choose any of the F5 that the Jazz had to give up in a major trade, I would reluctantly eventually go with Enes Kanter, that being said, I still believe he can blossom into an elite rebounder and solid scorer with defense being his major weakness. I wouldn't mind him being extended in the 8-10M per year range.

First off, I would like to commend Dennis Lindsey for trading for Burke and making this roster as Ty-proof as possible in the point guard department. Kudos

I wouldn't look too much at the first quarter of the season for Burke due to small sample size.

Burke has been reliable for 32 Minutes per night.

Overall I am content with Burke, but hopes he works on his shot and drives this summer. His 35-40 FG% isn't horrible for a rookie point guard but let's hope he improves to be in the 45% range next season.

On the same topic of shooting, increasing his 3 point shooting 35% to 40% next season would also be wonderful.

Burke's free throw shooting is already stellar at 88%.

I am very pleased with Burke's 3 rebounds 6 assists a game for much of this season. The relatively low assists is acceptable due to Hayward also averaging 5 per game.

Burke averaging just under 2 turnovers a game also stands out to me, that is incredible for a point guard with his usage.

In scoring, Burke started hot in the 2nd quarter feasting on bad teams to average 14 points per game.

In the most recent 2 quarters, Burke's scoring is down overall (perhaps due to the rookie wall) to about 12 points per game, but he is mysteriously doing 3 to 5 points better against teams with winning records compared to ≤.500 teams. Maybe Burke is the catalyst for showing up against bigger competition.

Overview:

Thanks for reading and apologies that my analyses were not extremely robust today. Getting all this data together took a lot of time and I think the data speaks for itself in a lot of ways.

Hayward has had a consistent role this season but with slightly streaky shooting.

Favors offensive capabilities have pleasantly surprised me, I would like to see how he performs with increased usage.

Burks has steadily improved and just may be our dark horse for 1st option next season if we don't luck out in the lottery.

Kanter started out okay, went ice cold during limited minutes, and now has been improving again as a solid rebounder and decent scorer.

Burke has saved us from staying on the Bucks level all season and has proved to be a decent scorer, excellent facilitator who should work on his shooting/driving if he wishes to join the west's top point guards.

Be excellent to each other and party on dudes and dudettes
