Isaiah Wilkins appreciation thread


Check out the attached link.

Box plus minus is not a true plus/minus stat but rather an estimate based on a player's various statistical contributions. Wilkins is often talked about as a "glue guy" and a guy who doesn't necessarily stuff the stat sheet. I think the former is true, but he certainly does stuff the stat sheet in pretty much all categories but scoring.

Say what you want about this stat, but every single person who has exceeded Wilkins' career box plus minus is playing in the NBA right now except Mikal Bridges, who will be soon.

Wilkins is also #1 in the country in this stat so far through the beginning of the 2017-18 season. His season last year was #25 out of all D-1 college players' seasons since 2011. The only other UVa players to have a season in the top 100 since that time are Anthony Gill (#37 in 2014-15), Justin Anderson (#49 in 2014-15), and Wilkins as a sophomore (#93 in 2015-16).

Wilkins is an underappreciated player, big time, IMO. We are really going to miss him next year. And if these numbers mean anything, he has a good shot to make the NBA. Whether he can get his stroke to a point where he can knock down wide open 3 pointers at a 35% clip or so will probably make or break him at that level. He certainly has team/help defensive concepts down.
