Paine on Point Guards at Prospectus

by

Neil Paine’s latest available for you at Basketball Prospectus.  He ranks point guards over the last calendar year.  Here’s a snippet:

To rank point guards, I gathered every NBA boxscore over the past 365 days–through Tuesday’s games–and determined the starting point guard in each game (most were obvious, some were judgment calls). I then calculated Alternate Win Score, the best linear-weights metric, for both point guards in a matchup, tracking how often each point guard outproduced their counterpart.

Check it out.  Do it.

    Neil’s great, and so is Chris Paul.

    I just like being mentioned in the same sentence as Chris Paul.

    In fact, I would have actually taken being mentioned in the same sentence as Chris Gatling or Paul Mokeski.

    Sorry the best I can do is Paul Davis and Christian Laettner. Sorry.
