FanPost

How do you explain it?

I'll keep this pretty short.  Its been an up and down year for the Dubs, who have definitely lacked consistency, and not met preseason expectations that many fans had.  After the David Lee trade many on this site were stoked on the team.  A lot of people were saying we were a sure fire playoff team, and I got more heat for saying that I still didn't think the Dubs would make the playoffs then other posters who made predictions of the Dubs being a fifth seed or higher.  I wish I could go back and find the conversations that took place, but I remember Missing Barry and some of the other people on this site who are really into statistics, throwing all kinds of stats at me to show that I was wrong and that the Warriors were going to be somewhere around a 50 win team.  First of all I want to use this opportunity to show that stats like Win Shares can be very flawed, and even when some of the GSoM's most intelligent posters (I'm looking at you MB) believe the story the stats are saying, it doesn't necessarily mean that the stats are correct.  I want to point this out because I feel like some people on this site take stats for gospel, and rip apart anyone who disagrees with the story that the stats lay out for us.  Yes, there are people who err in the opposite direction also, making unfounded claims, totally disregarding any numbers, but I don't think that either one is better than the other.  Why were the stats so far off in predicting the success of our team?  We have been one of the healthiest teams in the league this year...  Are stats taken too seriously on this site?  Just because some stats don't like Kobe B, does that not mean that there are not intangibles that he brings that the stats aren't measuring?  (It might not be the best idea to use Kobe as an example because I know that that will trigger big responses in people, but he is a good example)  What do ya'll think?
