but don't worry, carter will be in full form during the season, scoring 30+ while all you guys sit there and expect it to continue when it matters
You think a reversion to mean argument involves O&B glasses?

I would (and have) make the same argument about any player whose playoff statistics were notably below his career mean production. Similarly, players with well above mean production in the playoffs will, almost surely, have a fall from grace.

Reversion to mean works both ways.

On top of all of this, there is a rather large body of empirical data supporting "our" opinion and completely refuting yours.
