Gonna respond to this from the last thread.

lol George Karl is awful.
Defensive rating is points allowed per 100 possessions. If anything, it averages things out. Basically you take every team give them an equal amount of possessions and see who gives up the least amount of points.

Of the top 15 defensive teams according to defensive rating;
5 are among the top 10 highest paced teams
5 are among the middle 10 or average paced teams
5 are among the bottom 10 paced teams

Of the top 10 defensive teams according to defensive rating;
2 are among the top 10 highest paced teams
4 are among the middle 10 or average paced teams
4 are among the bottom 10 paced teams

Of the top 5 defensive teams according to defensive rating;
2 are among the top 10 highest paced teams
1 is among the middle 10 or average paced teams
2 are among the bottom 10 paced teams

So how exactly does defensive rating favor high paced teams and give them an advantage? Like I said before, it gives every team an equal chance and if you're a great defensive team, no matter what pace you play at defensive rating will reflect what you do on that end of the floor.


Yes I do think George Karl is overrated as far as his career achievements go, but he is by no means an awful coach. He is a top 10 coach in this league.
