According to PER this season 1 Anthony Davis, NO 2 James Harden, HOU 3 Giannis Antetokounmpo, MIL 4 Nikola Jokic, DEN 5 Kawhi Leonard, TOR 6 Stephen Curry, GS 7 Joel Embiid, PHI 8 LeBron James, LAL 9 Karl-Anthony Towns, MIN 10 Nikola Vucevic, OR What’s your thoughts?
It is a fact that one advanced stat creates this output. Statistics are not perfect. Dont be dumb.
You asked for peoples thoughts
Mine may be an unpopular opinion but here it is. 1. Jamal Murray 2. Dwight Powell 3. Dillon Brooks 4. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 5. Chris Boucher 6. Kelly Olynyk 7. Khem Birch 8. Cory Joseph 9. Trey Lyles 10. Tristan Thompson
Where tf is Quincy Acy
I know RJ Barrett hasnt played in the NBA yet but I definitely have him in my top 10.
Iâ€™d put him at number 2 if I was including non-nba players. By the way this list is my list of top 10 Canadian nba players based off their potential that I see
This is more accurate than OP
PER values rebounding so much
Only big surprise to me is Vuc but heâ€™s been balling so I ainâ€™t mad
Damn, Id expect PG to be in there after the season hes having
I might feel differently but Iâ€™m not going to argue with a stat
Why? Any stat that excludes Paul George from the top 10 players in the league this season is inherently flawed, and those flaws are worth arguing.
Everyone knows that advanced stats are only good for cherry picking the exact stat you need to prove any given point... Im positive there are advanced metrics out there that can prove my theory of Adam Morrison being the GOAT.
PER = shit
11. Kyrie 12. KD
PER is nonsense. Boban Marjanovic has a 24 PER, greater than Dame Lillard, Blake Griffin, and Klay Thompson.
so your saying the sixers fleeced the clippers and tobias was more of a throw in for salary
Also Boban is the best player of all time based off of your criteria.
If boban had the speed and stamina to keep up with pace , heâ€™ll be an all star loll
No heâ€™s the best player of all time. Itâ€™s a FACT. Or are you disputing this?
KAT over Donic???
Seriously? thats your problem?
PER is a terrible stat that overrates big men
PER is a stat that doesnt rate players well defensively, it uses blocks and steals to determine if a player is good on D. It doesnt really overrate big men, it rewards efficiency (high TS). TS%, Steals and offensive rebounds count more than most of th
It rewards volume shooting and not efficiency. As long as you shoot 40% from 2, and 25% from 3 (rough numbers) each shot you take increases your PER. Its why 47% TS kobe with a 35% USG had a PER of 17/3 while failing at every other advanced stat
Itâ€™s a flawed stat not anything new
PER isnâ€™t a good stat to use to compare talent
You are a basketball savant. Wow. Just incredible work with that list.
