are you sure that doesn't matter? because that matters a lot, especially in development. he might be more skilled than Tiago, but Tiago hasn't actually gotten the same chances as him.
Minutes and production are two related stats which makes trying to control for them difficult. If Tiago was a more productive player, he would get more minutes which would boost his stats. Also, players who play more minutes play against better competition and compete for touches with better players, so their production per minute is dragged down. Overall though, you can look at a guy who plays 30+ minutes per game like Marc Gasol, look at his per minute and per game production and compare it to Splitter and see that there is NO COMPARISON. Gasol is a much more talented player and it bares out in the stats.
