2012-13 stat leaders

Postby Mike Goodman » Tue Sep 10, 2013 4:34 pm

Was this not an unusual season, in that per-game leaders and season total leaders were almost entirely different people?

The NBA began keeping track of rebounds with the 1950-51 season. Since then, 2012-13 was only the third nonlockout season in which no player reached 1000 rebounds. The other two seasons were 1951-52 (Larry Foust and Mel Hutchins tied for the league lead with 880) and 1996-97 (Dikembe Mutumbo led the league with 929). There have been four other seasons in which the leader cleared 1000 by less than ten rebounds. In 1995-96, David Robinson led the league with exactly 1000.

Vasquez' 704 assists was the lowest total for a league leader in a nonlockout season since Don Buse's 685 in 1976-77.

Vasquez' 704 [assists] was the lowest total for a league leader since Don Buse's 685 in 1976-77.

Interesting, given that teams averaged 22.1 assists per game last season, the highest average in the last 13 years.
That 22.1 is just 39th in the last 67 NBA seasons.

Kevin Durant has led the NBA in total points for the past four consecutive seasons, 2009-10 through 2012-13. (Durant was also the leader in points per game during the first three seasons, but not this past one, as Mike noted in the first post in this thread.) The only two players to do that previously are Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan, each of whom led the league in total points for seven consecutive seasons.

Players who've led in total points for three consecutive seasons: George Mikan, Neil Johnston, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bob McAdoo, George Gervin, Michael Jordan (a second streak entirely separate from his seven-year streak), and Kobe Bryant.

Michael Jordan led the NBA in total points scored for every full season he played, up until his second retirement in 1998. This includes his rookie year, when he led in total points, but not points per game.

In 1957-58, George Yardley became the first NBA player to score 2,000 points in a season. Since then, there has only been one nonlockout season when no player scored 2,000 points, which was 2003-04. Kevin Garnett led the league with 1,987 points.

In 2013-14, there were two players with over 1000 rebounds: DeAndre Jordan (1114) and Andre Drummond (1071). So 1950-51, 1996-97 and 2012-13 remain the only nonlockout seasons in which no player reached 1000 rebounds.

John Wall led the league in total assists with 721. That's a few more than Vasquez had to lead the league last year, but not by much; aside from last year, only two other seasons since 1977 have had lower league-leading totals.

Kevin Durant led the league in total points again, extending his streak to five consecutive years.

The same two players who cleared 1000 rebounds in 2013-14 did it again in 2014-15. Jordan had 1226, Drummond 1124. So 1950-51, 1996-97 and 2012-13 continue to be the only nonlockout seasons in which no player reached 1000 rebounds.

Chris Paul led the league in total assists with 838. That's considerably more than the leader totals from the previous few seasons. The last player with that many assists was Steve Nash in 2010-11 (855).

Kevin Durant missed much of the season due to injury, so his streak of leading the league in total points scored was snapped at five. (Limited to 27 games, Durant tumbled to 148th place.) James Harden was the new leader, with 2217. The last player to lead the league other than Durant had been Dwyane Wade in 2008-09.

A bit of trivia I came across on b-r.com: LeBron James finished second in the league in totals points scored - exactly second, no higher, no lower - for eight consecutive seasons from 2004-05 through 2011-12, behind four different leaders. He was 3rd in 2012-13 and 2013-14, then 4th in 2014-15. The only season of his NBA career not yet accounted for is his rookie season, 2003-04, when he ranked 10th.
