First, let's take a quick look at Mr. George's FT attempts average per season: 2015-16 (with George Hill as point guard) - 6.5 free throw attempts per game. 2016-17 (with Jeff Teague as point guard) - 5.0 free throw attempts per game. 2017-18 to date (with Russell Westbrook as point guard) - 3.8 free throw attempts per game. The trend here is obvious - The better the playmaker at the point, the less likely PC13 is going to have to the cojones to get his hands dirty and attack the damn basket. Now a look at the respective plus-minus ratings of OKC's three alphas to this point: Westbrook: +4.3 Carmelo Anthony: +3.4 George: +1.7 While this could mostly be a reflector of OKC's sub-par bench corps, it's quite obvious who the least effective of the Thunder's three stars is. The nationwide propaganda will always find creative ways to hate on Westbrook and 'Melo first, though. OKC is on pace to have their worst season since 2008-09, which was their first after leaving Seattle. George ruined the Pacers' franchise last season. And this season, he's been part of a roster that's left a once-proud franchise that's looked dysfunctional of the court to this point. And come next season, he going to ruin the Lakers' franchise as well with his iso-happy, jumper-settling ways. Oh, and one final stat for everyone to chew on... 2017-18 records to date: Pacers: 13-11 OKC: 11-12 Who got fleeced, again?
