Steve Novak’s historic season


Not only is the New York Knickerbocker Steve Novak a historic long-range shooter, the stretch forward is having a record breaking season in another way.

Among NBA players with 1,000+ minutes in a season only 4 have posted turnover rates of less than 5%.  Individual player turnovers have been tracked since 1978 and Novak’s 2013 campaign is on track to be the best ever from the perspective of avoiding turnovers.
