No, this stat is reality. This is what Darko has actually done. Actual performance. On a per minute basis, he has been blocking shots at a rate 6 times higher than Pachulia. He has actually matched Pachulia in blocks for the season despite playing way less. Anyone who wants to think of 48 minute stats as projections is simply not understanding what 48 minute stats are good for. No way are they for projecting what a player would do in a 48 minute game. 48 minute stats, or per minute stats, or per 40 minute stats, all do the same thing. They quickly tell you what the actual performance on something has been between two players with disimilar minutes. Nothing more. Yes, there is more to basketball than blocks. But a player shutting down the lane like Darko does with his exceptional shot blocking ability is nothing to quickly dismiss either.
