I disagree with pretty much everything in that quote, but whatever. I wouldn't expect Brandon of all people to appreciate the finer points of usage and efficiency metrics (though the basics would be nice?), and I certainly don't mind him supporting Monta publicly, however misplaced that sentiment might be in the grand scheme of the universe. I also would be shocked if Jennings missed tonight's game.
But it's not just Brandon--major outlets are still running stories with titles like "Brandon Jennings, Monta Ellis succeeding for Milwaukee Bucks" which may have some basis in reality from a won-loss standpoint but borders on ludicrous in terms of the tandem's production relative to historical expectations. Over at RealGM, LUKE23 had a great (OK, depressing) stat which says a lot about why the Bucks offense is currently 27th in the league: among players averaging 15 ppg or more, Ellis ranks 59th and Jennings 52nd in true shooting percentage, which is just about the best metric there is for measuring scoring efficiency. Sadly, Ellis ranks 59th out of (you guessed it!) 59 in that category, which makes the Bucks' duo easily the least effective high volume duo in the league. But while neither has ever been what one would describe as efficient in the scoring department, history says they can and should be better. Does that count as a silver lining?
