The Cheshire Phoenix Roster

The Players to Watch for Cheshire Phoenix

Kyle Carey 6-6 190 GF

He is a general rotation player on this team. Nothing too special thus far. He sports a above-average in Defensive Efficiency with an Defensive Rating of 106.0. He is among the worst in Offensive Efficiency with an Offensive Rating of 97.1.

With an Effective Field Goal rate of 47.3%, he is a below-average when given the opportunity. He is a shooter of extreme inefficiency when isolating his shooting figures from the rest of his metrics. Shooting three point shots is either a rarity or it never happens, he gets his work done in the paint. He is a below average three point shooter. He is a bit more of a jump shot oriented player so he does not get fouled as much. At the Free Throw Line, he is an above average Free Throw shooter.

He is a below-average distributor, but this may have a lot to do with offensive role.He has done a better job than most protecting the basketball.

Jules Dang Akodo 6-2 190 PG

He is considered a fringe player who may not stick around. He sports a above-average in Defensive Efficiency with an Defensive Rating of 104.2. He is among the worst in Offensive Efficiency with an Offensive Rating of 97.1.

With an Effective Field Goal rate of 49.2%, he is a below-average when given the opportunity. He is a shooter of extreme inefficiency when isolating his shooting figures from the rest of his metrics.

He would be considered one of the more passive offensive players and he is almost exclusively a jump shooter. Fouling him is probably better than letting him get two points on a drive or post-up. The Free Throw Line is an adventure for him and everyone is there to watch.

He is either a ballhog, does not play enough minutes or he is not supposed to be distributing the ball. The ball is in safe hands with him and there is a general level of comfort in his stewardship.
