Re: My list of top 50 Greatest NBA players of all-time (Revi

both bobby jones and maurice cheeks were excellent defenders from the late 70s to the mid-80s, quite possibly each the best defender at their respective positions during that time. larry nance was a very good to excellent defender most of his career, had - by far - the most blocked shots of all non...

My defensive ratings for the quoted players (higher the better, 100=average) Isiah Thomas = 102 Alex E...

Re: My list of top 50 Greatest NBA players of all-time (Revi

any chance you can re-post the list, expand it to 100 players, and show how the Player Value is broken down into Alternate Win Score, VORP, and the calculated Defensive Rating?... You read my mind.. I was working on a top-100 list. But with my work schedule and the fact that I have to adjust every ...

Re: My list of top 50 Greatest NBA players of all-time (Revi

The major difference in this list and the previous ones is that I factored the "usage rates" into the formula. Also, I used MVP shares to serve as sort of an "eye test" if you will. I lowered the minimums as well to 600 games, Durant, Paul now rank (however penalized by the age factor) Here's are ar...

Re: 1952-2014 statistical rankings of 708 NBA/ABA careers

Thanks yerself. Just want to reiterate that awards are not a counted 'statistic' in this list. The reason is that my motivation has always been to avoid the over- and under-appreciation a player may have gotten in the past. Many players are put on the latest greatest list, just because they were on...

Re: 100 Greatest NBA Players (Ultimate list)

Also, I just added a feature ADJUSTED CPE & Surplus/Deficit (at the bottom of the blog page), which allows for a simple calculation of whether a player over- or under achieved or is over- or under rated or some of both in his career and to what extent. The numbers of surplus/Deficit are subject to i...

I've now updated through the 2012-13 season (and postseason), and compared my current player rankings with those of the OP -- D-rell Players who were active last year.
