Fanservice: Net NBA Starters

Sometimes there really aren’t enough hours during the day.

But we have to make time somehow for the important things in life.

Get to the Tardis (I figure the Tardis is the Black Background)!

Regular readers know, I’ve been playing around with tracking monthly and weekly performance for NBA players (see here, here and here).

The last one was a rookie post. Which people seemed to like. One of my reader All Stars Chicago Tim asked:

“Also, I would love to see your table reorganized not by year in the league, but by age. Some of the rookies are over 24, while some of the vets have not yet hit their prime. If doing it for everyone is too much, maybe just everyone under 24 (still a good chance to improve) vs. everyone 24 and over?

We aim to please here at ASLS but this time there’s a twist.

Awesome,Silly and with a twist.

Again what follows is a  player breakdown by the level of play by month. The levels are:

  • Elite (>.400 WP48) which I used previously here
  • Superstar (>.300 WP48 & <.400 WP48)
  • Star (>.200 WP48 & <.300 WP48)
  • Starter (>.100 WP48 & <.200 WP48)
  • Bench (>.000 WP48 & <.100 WP48)
  • D-Leaguer (<.000 WP48)

The season is split into thirty day chunks (pre-All Star Break).Everyone get’s points according to their WP48  level (-1 for -.100 to 0, 0 for o to .100, 1 for .1oo to .2oo , 2 for .200 to .300 etc. see here for the Basics behind it  and here for the Nerdnumbers).

The Twist you ask? I only included those players who netted 4 points or more (i.e. net NBA starters).

Here’s the damage:

Only 82 players qualify for this distinction. If I break it down by team (after all the trades from yesterday) we get:

Team # of Starters
DAL 5
MIA 5
TOR 5
BOS 5
CHI 5
LAL 5
IND 4
SAS 4
OKC 4
POR 3
HOU 3
NOH 3
ORL 3
PHO 3
MEM 3
DEN 2
CLE 2
UTA 2
LAC 2
ATL 2
DET 2
NYK 2
PHI 2
MIL 2
WAS 1
MIN 1
NJN 1
GSW 1

Good list to be on the top of. Except the Raptors are strange. Really,really strange.

P.S. IMHO New York won the trade (Yay for getting Chauncey and not losing Fields) but they have no shot at a crown this year or next (barring a Kevin Love like leap for Fields). For deeper analysis please go to Dr. Berri, Andres Alvarez or Ty Willighamz.

Thank you for playing today. Please enjoy your lovely parting gift.

Going Quitely
