Question: Are there any sorts of metrics that are good indicators of a player's defensive prowess, or does one typically just have to use their eyes?

There's all-encompassing stats like defensive rating and defensive win shares. There's also websites that analyze individual play but they cost money. A good indicator of a good defensive player can be stocks (combined total of blocks and steals) being over 3.0.

Jazz as the 1 and Knicks as a 5 are a little more surprising to me but yeah, good run so far

good thing bottom 3 have the same odds because Twolves and Rockets want to tank harder than us

I agree with this in terms of surprises, but Suns legitimately look like they could actually do something in the playoffs.

Not sure how’d they stack against a complete healthy Lakers team, and while the Jazz look really good they are like the Suns they haven’t ever actually done much.

In any case I haven’t been this excited for a Suns team I’m f***ing years, and they actually play defense so this year may be their year.

Mike Conley replaces injured all-star Devin Booker

It took a double injury replacement but he finally did it!

So what do you guys think about this topshot thing? I've been looking more into it and it's...something. Sounds like the site is getting slammed and having a whole host of technical problems, but the premise seems interesting. Anyone that's looked into it have any opinions? Will this flame out, or take off?
