Current Point Guard Rankings (1/08/11)

With the All-Star voting ending in a couple weeks, it's a good time to start looking at position rankings. Today, the point guards. These rankings were calculated using counterpart rebounds, as I wrote about yesterday. Any Warriors players will be highlighted (so to speak). Looks like Paul, Nash, and Williams deserve to make it from the West. Out East, the three R's: Rondo, Rose, and Raymond Felton (ok, two R's, one F).

  1. I looked at the the top 17 (all those +2 or better on EZPM and roughly top 40% of the 45) and compared them to the remaining 28. Using simple averages (not minutes weighted) the +2 guys are way better on OEFF (11.2 compared to 0.9), about 2% higher on usage, a bit over 0.6 better on D100 and about .3 higher on REB100 for a clean sweep. Overall the top 17 average +3.6 on EZPM while the remaining 28 average 0.2.

    Wonder about the salary difference and the value difference. Raise the idea... I'll do this one. The top 17 average about $7.7 million this season while the bottom 28 average $4.7 million. The top guys sure look worth the extra $3 million. I think the net value increase might be worth up to 3 times the salary difference.

    Comparing by age and other things might be interesting but I leave those for later or others if interested.

  2. The disparity in talent level in the NBA between the top tier and everyone else seems to be huge. I think if you take away the top 20-30 players in the league, no team would have a discernable advantage.

  3. If you do go back to earlier years I'd say I'd personally be more interested in the multi-season averages and change over the period data than the older seasons by themselves but of course having those distinct years of data will have their possible uses too.

  4. Yeah, I agree. I'd be mostly interested in constructing aging curves and looking at things like how changes in usage affects the ezPM.
