Why isn't Draymond Green getting any love?
Also yesterday, Jeff Eisenberg of Yahoo! Sports posted a side-by-side comparison of Davis and Robinson, which you can see . (According to Eisenberg, ESPN.com's straw poll had Jared Sullinger in third, so.... yeah). (Update: The has Green in a very distant third).
I decided to add Green to the comparison. Here is the result:
As you can see, Green's overall numbers are quite comparable. He's between Davis and Robinson in terms of points, but his field-goal percentage is lower because he frequently takes and hits jump shots. Green is making 41 percent of his three-point shots (44-for-108), while Robinson is 4-for-11 and Davis is 0-for-8. Green is on pace to become the first player to average 15 points, 10 rebounds and three assists since Tim Duncan, who won the award in the late 1990s.
