Since he plays in Canada should we just call him "The Great One"?

 

FG% check: 7/11 tonight 61.9% on the season

No. No. No. No.  One more time: No.

Oh the tings I will do when I am on call at work and all the servers are running fine (in other words, I am bored): 

Pascal Siakam fun facts, Nov 20 edition: 

  •   number of games with 3 or more 3PT attempts: 

2018/19 - 3 games
2017/18 - 20 games  ( 2 games after all star break)
2016/17 - zero games

  • Number of games with 3 or more 3PT attempts  where 3P% less than 50%:

2018/19 -  1 game (his FG% was 62% in that game)
2017/18 - 16  games (1  game after all star break)

I think we can see a trend where he will  attempt some 3s; if they go in he will keep shooting. If not he will not take them.

And final fun facts: 

  •  number of games with 10 or more FGA :

2018/19 - 8
2017/18 - 8
2016/17 - 2

  • number of games with 10 or more FGA and FG% less than 50% :

2018/19 - 1
2017/18 - 1 
2016/17 - 0

  •  number of games with 10 or more FGA and FG% greater than 60% :

2018/19 - 6  (only 2 games so far with 10 or more attempts and FG% under 60%; he was 40% and 57% in those)
2017/18 - 4 
2016/17 - 0

Let's do some math.
Assumption: for the rest of the season he attempts  two 3s per game and ten FGA total.

That would give him total of 820 FGA per season.
To hit 60% he needs  to  make  492 of them (492 / 820 = 0.6) 

820 FGA = 164 3PTA + 656 2FGA


If he keeps making 3s at the current rate of 31%  he needs to make 51 of them.
51 /164 = 0.31

492 - 51 = 441

So, to hit 60% for the season, he needs to make 441 2-point FG out of 656 attempts.
441 / 656 = 0.672

In other words, his FG% for 2s should be 67% or higher in order to make 60%  for the season.

So far for the season, he is at 68.8% (http://www.espn.com/nba/statistics/player/_/stat/field-goals/sort/fieldGoalPct)

Difficult but not impossible, DeAndre Jordan has done it couple of times.
The watch is on...

You're also assuming that he's healthy the rest of the year. Your average useful fantasy player (iirc) plays about a high 80% of his games year to year. We're 20% of the way through the year, so you can assume he plays 72-74 games. Meaning it's even easier for him to hit those numbers.

Especially when he is "the Great One"

(i guess I'll also settle for "the chosen one")

Can somebody do an analysis of his shot selection? That could be a better indication

just watch one Raptors game, that is all you need.  At the rim or  wide open 3s. Very seldom he shoots long 2s

Kawhi is out tonight. Expecting a double-double, +60% shooting, and a full line from Siakam tonight. 

And the opponent is Hawks, so let the line be 2/2/2/2 :D

It's like I don't even need to look at the box score anymore, other than to see if he chipped in a crazy reb/stl/blk total.  It's automatic.  7/8.  9/12.  Dare I say Top 30 finish is possible?
