The result of the 2012-13 season was everything the Golden State Warriors envisioned when they traded for David Lee. Many skeptics of Lee’s previous All-Star season stated that he was putting up meaningless numbers in a bad team. These thoughts continued through his first few campaigns with the Dubs, as he battled through the gruesome elbow infection and was shut down early during the “tank express.”

However, Lee’s performance is compared to that of a superstar due to his $80 million contract. He finally gained some relief from the critics after becoming Golden State’s first All-Star since Latrell Sprewell in 1997. Yet, after review of the season, it seems that the statistics perhaps point to another questionable All-Star selection.
