Kevin Martin vs Carmelo in the Clutch



Recently, we saw that graphic about Kevin Martin in the clutch and how he scored at a much higher efficiency than most players. He was way higher than Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant

 

In the most recent NBA Today Podcast (fun listens. Ryen Russilo the host is kind of a douche but it makes the show way more interesting and entertaining. He usually tells it how he sees it and has good guests.) Henry Abbott came on from True Hoop to discuss Melo.

 And Kevin Martin came up

Initially, the conversation was about how stat geeks think Melo is overvalued based on efficiency stats. However, it is possible that superstars make the game easier for others. Having a Kobe or a Melo on your team makes it easier if you are Steve Blake rather than having Kevin Martin on your team.

Abbott in the podcast chose to take Kevin Martin over BOTH Carmelo and Kobe in the clutch simply because Kevin Martin through the course of the game is more likely to score when he touches the ball compared to either Kobe or Carmelo. 

 

He also called Kevin Martin the most efficient wing player of all time.

 

So maybe we shoudl stop hating and start appreciating.
