…hat’s why his teams are so unbeatable when he does hit threes. Green elevates the rest of the team. He led the NBA champion Toronto Raptors in on-court rating at +14 and on/off metrics at +18. He also ranked 14th among NBA guards in BPM and 15th in VORP. That’s higher than names like C.J. Mc…
In the regular season, he was great. In the playoffs, his On/Off Rating dropped substantially.
Playoff Raptors On Rating and On/Off Ratings:
Leonard: +8.7, +15.9
Lowry: +8.4, +11.9
Gasol: +14.2, +9.9
Ibaka: +8.6, +5.6
Green: +7.6, +4.8
Siakam: +5.6, -1.3
VanVleet: +3.2, -5.0
Green is an ideal role player, but the use of BPM and VORP to call him a top 15 guard is a huge stretch.
On the other hand, Klay Thompson had the best net rating of any star player in the playoffs in clutch situations (+/- 5 point difference or less, last 5 minutes of the game) at +15.5, followed by Curry (+9.4), Lowry (+7.5), Leonard (+7.2), Green (+6.1), Jokic (+3.6), Siakam (+2.6), McCollum (+2.6), while Durant, Capela, Green, Harden and Paul all had big negative ratings.
Best of all, he might be part of the Kawhi Leonard package deal.
