Marc Gasol Says: ‘Stats are killing the game of basketball’

Stats have always been important to players, coaches, the media, and fans; this year in particular, we’ve been closely watching Russell Westbrook as he made triple-double history.  Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol made history as well, becoming the first center to record 300 assists, 100 threes and 100 blocks in a season, but he doesn’t want to discuss stats, in fact, he says they’re killing the game.

via Commercial Appeal:

Gasol was asked about point guard Mike Conley’s breakout season statistically and initially responded with this take:

“We’ve got 43 wins. If we win (tonight), we’ll have 44. That’s the only number you guys (media) should care about,” Gasol said. “Stats are great, but wins and losses matter. Stats are killing the game of basketball. Basketball is a subjective game. A lot of things happen that you cannot measure in stats. Different things matter. To me, the most important things in basketball are not measured by stats.”

The Grizzlies clinched their seventh straight playoff berth and will face the San Antonio Spurs in the first round of the playoffs.
