I'm not as married to these numbers as some of you are, but let it be known that Derrick leads the league in USG% and is 10th in PER. Of the guys ahead of him in PER, only four are in the top twenty in terms of USG%, those being Kobe(6th), Dirk(10th), Monta(9th) and Westbrook(20th). For what it's worth, Derrick is living up to his pre-season talk of being MVP; he's arrived in a big way.
This is just a little nugget for you guys that were worried about his FIBA play and his shitty pre-season. He's having a better season than any of his FIBA teammates, so what does that tell you about FIBA, Olympics, etc?
All of the numbers I used are from Basketball Reference.
