Shooting (B): Sefolosha is vastly improved. He gets a break in this category, because as a spot-up shooter he doesn't have to create his own shot thanks to Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook carrying the load. Sefolosha also penetrates well and is a terrific finisher at the basket (.709).
Passing (B): Sefolosha might be the team's best passer, which is why he inbounds the ball on set plays. However, the fact he is the team leader with only a “B” lets you know the Thunder is a poor passing team, which will be a point of emphasis this offseason.
Defending (A): For Sefolosha, this is a like being graded for an independent study class. It's an easy “A” because he doesn't mind doing it.
Rebounding (D): For a guy who stands 6-foot-7, has a 7-foot-2 wingspan and prides himself on defensive positioning, he really should rebound better — around 5-6 per game rather than his 3.7 career average.
Leadership (A): Sefolosha's leadership doesn't come from rah-rah stuff. It comes from his commitment to defending the other team's best perimeter scorer night after night without complaint. It's an exhausting responsibility and Sefolosha does it as well as anybody in the NBA.
