I look forward to Mayo's next PED suspension. Just how many NBA players have been booted for PEDs, not pot (or Birdman's Meth)? Now I love Carlisle, but dang are these some staggering improvements...
First 4 years FG% - 43.8, 45.8, 40.7, 40.8
This year - 49.0
First 4 years 3P% - 38.4, 38.3, 36.4, 36.4
This year - 53.2
So Mayo shows remarkable consistency for 4 years, like clockwork almost, and suddenly his 3P% is up 15% points over his career average to a whopping 53? And this isn't a guy that was hurt, he failed to play in year 2 and that was due to SUSPENSION.
In every other way Mayo has been dead on his career averages. Only his shooting is up, and way way up.
So in the grass is greener point I'm saying that a guy with some iffy history who NORMALLY shoots 43%/38% doesn't really help a team who already has guys that have put up the same numbers. And jumping on the 14 games of drastically improved output paired with joining a different coach with a history of making teams and players better doesn't really sell me on the idea that had Mayo been here we wouldn't be just as frustrated with 4-11 nights for 13 points.
