I’m not saying it should weigh too heavily, and obviously there are a lot of factors when it comes to the amount of turnovers a player averages. However, I do think it’s fair to bring it up when comparing players that have a similar usage rate. A turnover can have a serious impact on a game, and I don’t really understand why hardly anybody ever mentions it when comparing the numbers of all-time greats. If there is an explanation for it not really being mentioned, Id be happy to hear it about it. usps tracking

I think everyone likes to avoid the negatives when talking about all-time greats.
Turnovers are not a stat people like to bring up because it's not flashy. Points, rebounds, assists, and shooting percentages are sexy stats, while turnovers are not sexy

Also when a turnover is committed sometimes it's not the player's fault. For example, LeBron might throw the ball to Kuzma, but Kuzma might drop it. That's Kuz's fualt but the turnover goes to LeBron
