Assist Charts 2010-11: Ben Gordon

This is the latest installment of a series called “Assist Charts.” For each of the 13 Pistons who played this year, I’m going to show whom they assisted and who assisted them.

Each post will be divided into two sections: Player assists to and Assists from player. Player assists to shows who the featured player assisted. Assists from player shows who assisted the featured player.

Each section will display two pie graphs and corresponding tables. One graph and table will show totals, and the other set will show per 36 minutes.

All the graphs and tables are color-coded with a specific color assigned to each player throughout the series. Point guards are blue. Shooting guards are orange. Small forwards are green. Power forwards are red. Centers are yellow.

What we learned

Whoa, Ben Gordon really got Charlie Villanueva involved. Of course, they’ll always be tied because they both signed big contracts in 2009, but Villanueva also played more minutes with Gordon than anyone else did. I’d probably try to keep playing the UConn pair together next season.

Otherwise, Gordon didn’t have many assists. He’s a scoring guard, and if you expected differently, that’s your fault, not his.

What we learned

I wasn’t a big believer that the Pistons’ point guards have caused Gordon’s struggles the last two years, but I might be coming around. By a solid margin, nobody assisted Gordon more per minutes than Detroit’s three point guards – Tracy McGrady, Rodney Stuckey and Will Bynum.

Maybe Gordon is actually point guard dependent.

    Gordon is one of my favorite players on the Pistons!!! I hope we can create a good team next season through trades and hopefully Gordon will get his 30+ minutes a game so he can return to that player that scores 18-21pts per game…

      Gordon is GARBAGE.  John Paxson was so right not to re-sign him.  Look how terrible he is.  What’s worse is that the Pistons have him locked for another 3 years at 30$ million.  I am not surprised by the huge black gap in the assists recieved charts.  All of the Pistons were rather selfish players.

    The rate of assisting Villanueva is really surprising. Although, given that that didn’t jump out when assessing CV, it seems that it is more a function of Gordon not passing to others more than a function of his being great at getting CV the ball.

      Both Gordon and Villaneuva are BUMS.  I’m surprised that they won the national title when they both played together in UConn.

    It’s not really surprising that he passed to CV a lot. that really stood out last season. they have good chemistry when they play together….. unfortunately it wasn’t shared through out the whole team..

    I am actually a little suprised that Gordon seems SO point guard dependant in these assist charts.   (Although, that case could be logically made:  4 very good seasons in Chicago whilst playing with a couple of good point guards.  2 very bad seasons in Detroit while playing with poor point guards.  Of course, that could just be a coincedence that his production fell so precipitously, …but then again, maybe not).  

    In any case, it would seem to me that his game is ideally be suited for an inside/outside game.  With Gordon’s shooting ability and quick shooting release, you would think that he could be very effective as an outlet man for the bigs who are working the post.  Hmm, …that smacks of coaching mistakes to me.
