MKG statistically better in NBA than in college
One of my concerns about MKG at draft time: Even though he was considered a lock down defender with a Gerald Wallace type of game, he didn't have a tremendous amount of blocks and steals.
So far so good in the NBA. After 12 games, here is how NBA MKG stacks up to college MKG on a per-40 minute, pace-adjusted basis.
points 16.1 NBA, 15.3 NCAA
rebounds 9.5 NBA, 9.5 NCAA
steals 1.8 NBA, 1.2 NCAA
blocks 2.1 NBA, 1.2 NCAA
FG% 47.2 NBA, 49.1 NBA
