I looked up some other metrics to see how well they concur (or don't) with eWins. Players who are off by at least .60 eW from last year, for better or worse; change from last year to this year in: eW/484, PER, WS/48, and BPM.
They're ranked by PER change, since PER seems to correlate best with the other 3.

Code: Select all

. changes          PER   e484    ws/48   BPM
Dennis Schroeder  12.1   1.19    .177    7.4

Kevin Love        -7.8   -.93   -.072   -5.6
Chris Copeland    -9.3   -.96   -.187   -3.9
While each metric may "like" a player more or less than another, there's broad agreement about ups and downs across the stats. A couple of exceptions: Solomon Hill and Chris Bosh.

Code: Select all

.   stat:        eW/484           PER          WS/48          BPM 
. improved?     14    15       14    15       14    15      14   15
Chris Bosh    1.46   1.87    19.0   22.5    .152   .129     .3   .0
Solomon Hill   .15    .57     7.6   11.0    .080   .057   -1.9   .2
Bosh's DRtg has slipped along with the team's (104 to 107). But his ORtg has dropped even more (112 to 108). He has career low ORb% and career high DRb%. Career high Usg% with no rise in TO%.
BPM says he's an average player -- not quite as good as Hill.
S Hill might be the weakest player (statistically) to lead a team in minutes, which he now does by a good margin for the Pacers.

Average age of the biggest decliners is close to 28.

I know there might be some with issues with this but has anyone looked at aging curves by "Race"? How about height or weight? Years in college?

The Kings' DC and DMC both just missed the cut at +.39
Most players whose production has dropped will also receive fewer minutes. So I've padded the 'losers' ranks with a few in the -.30 to -.40 range, whose e484 have also dropped by .40 or more.

On Nov. 29, Andre Drummond was listed among the 20 biggest 'downers' this season. He had the 3rd biggest dropoff among centers, in eWins.

By that time, he'd already begun to turn his season around.
http://www.basketball-reference.com/pla ... elog/2015/
Using his Game Log, we find this split, thru and since Nov.

Code: Select all

Almost all his numbers in his first 17 were worse than last season; since then, almost all have been better.
ORtg-DRtg in the last 17 are about equal to last year.
His Usage% for the year is up from 16.7 to 21.3, an increase of 28%.

Of players who moved from one conference to the other since last season, I find 35 players moving from west to east, totaling almost 44,000 minutes last year. Just 23 went the other way, east to west, taking their <35,000 minutes with them.

The W to E bunch averaged 21.7 mpg last year and the same this year (so far).
The E to W players' mpg have dropped from 24.9 to 20.6 -- likely due to increased competition in the West.

Paring it down a bit, here they are ranked by their 'improvement' in eWins beyond what they did last year:

As a group, they were below-avg players last year and have gone down some more. Sco, Reb, and Ast averages are shown, and they're not weighted by minutes. Still, they corroborate the drop in aggregate eW/484.

eWins variations are smaller, on average barely half of the others. This makes it less than a full partner in determining these averages.

Whiteside played for the Kings in 2011-12, going just 109 minutes. He got 12 mpg in the D-league in 2013, and I don't know where he was last year.
Of players with at least 480 minutes, leaders in some categories:

The top 5 is unchanged in 4 weeks.
Anthony Davis has moved from #10 to #6, partly by playing more minutes.
Gordon Hayward has come from nowhere to the #7 spot. Last update here was Jan. 21. Before and since that time:

Code: Select all

Jazz are 5-6 in this latest stretch, 14-28 before.
Of players who didn't make the AllStar team, Hayward is 4th in both WS and VORP. (Top 8 are in the West.)

Butler is out a few more weeks, so his lead may melt away.

Last year, Kevin Love was all-NBA 2nd team; this year, not even AllStar, not even in the East.
His dropoff*minutes is almost double the next biggest.
