True, same can be said for elite PGs, except the low TO rate is not artificial. Ace has all the raw materials to be elite, if he can get the TOs down.Turnover Rate (TORate): This is the percentage of personal possessions used on turnovers. It can be highly dependent on context. Players that do little passing or dribbling (i.e. spot-up shooters) will have an artificially deflated TO%.
We could go old school with the Assist to TO ratio. Elite = 3 to 1 for college PGs, Ace was at ~1.8 to 1, which qualifies as good, but not great and clearly not elite.
Can’t see any reasonable arguement that our fortunes last year weren’t primarily dictated by the team’s lack of care with the ball—and that starts with the primary ball handler.
I stand by the original statement, if Ace can get the TOR to 20 and/or “Assists to TO ratio” above 2. This team will dance as a single digit seed, barring some unexpected glaring issue elsewhere.
I believe he and the team will improve in that area, so it ought to be a great season.
