I'm a stats kind of guy, and after last night's game in which Iverson shot 22% from the floor, I was wondering whether Iverson is extremely overrated. Do stats mean anything in basketball? I think they do; we're just not taught to look at the important ones. While Iverson scores 30 per game, it's because he's throwing the ball up continously. When you compare his overall stats to Wally Szczerbiak of the Timberwolves, I think a case can be made that Wally helps his team more. His FG% is .451 (vs. Iverson's .393) and rebounds are higher. Iverson's steals are more than offset by his turnovers. Iverson may be fun to watch sometimes, but I think there are many other shooting guards I'd rather have. Am I focusing too much on the numbers? Can someone sell me on Iverson?
