Stats are quantifiable. If used in the right setting they are easy to understand, helpful in evaluating a player, and most of all – fun. Watching a player put up 50 points or swatting away four blocks is therapeutic. We know it’s good because the numbers tell us it’s good, and because we just know. Other times, stats can be misleading or empty, not providing much use to analyze a player’s worth. For the Toronto Raptors, like every team, stats mean at least something.
This past season saw the Toronto Raptors win their first-ever NBA title on the back of a statistically insupposable postseason from Kawhi Leonard, where he lead the Toronto Raptors in several categories, mainly points, rebounds, and steals.
