No, the point is he could produce the exact same stats as he has in the past and still not be top 40.  That's what people are saying.  His threes have hovered around three a game for years now, but that's gotten less and less valuable so his ranking has dropped.

Look at that Z score plummet. 

 

And yet he's still ranked pretty high with the a** fg% and not being able to rely on threes.

 

So it's possible that some of us are hoping its' the other categories that continue improving.

 

Who knows how Boogie will affect this team, maybe he can gamble more, maybe more assists...better looks.

Others have made it pretty clear that Klay's stats have not gone down substantially in the past 4 years.  The reason for his drop in rankings (for 9-cat, 9th in 2015!) is because of the increase in 3p

1) The best month of Hield's career is worse than Klay's career averages.  They are not the same caliber of player.   2) Show me a guy who scores 20ppg with 3 threes a game and shoots 47% fr

If you think he's gonna get better/produce better, to the point that he's top 40, okay. I disagree but that's fine. But if you're saying he'll go back to doing what he's always done and that's good enough for for top 40, that's not true. What used to be good enough for that no longer is (when it comes to being buoyed by threes). 

 

He's obviously better than what he's been showing these last two months, though.

Interesting season so far for Klay.  Besides a few games with massive 3 pt outbursts, he hasn't been shooting that well.  His 45% fg is his lowest in 5 years and his 36% from three is the lowest of his career - he has never been below 40%.  But his Pts, Reb, and Stl are all up from last season and his FGA are at a career high.  The biggest impact on his "ranking" of 28 in 9-cat (although I don't like using rankings much) is an almost 0.5 spg increase from last year.  We all knew he was always a good defender, it's great to finally see him getting some more steals as a result.

In a real sticky situation my playoffs start next week and I have Ad with a back to back and Klay only playing 2 possibly sitting one with the injury ,should I consider dropping him for another 3pt specialist? I can't afford to have two players only playing 2 games
