Interesting 82games Stats

Postby thkthebest on Tue Nov 13, 2012 6:00 pm

82games has finally come out with stats for this season. They're still updating, but here are some interesting ones.

Per 100 possessions...

Lakers are 43.4 points better with Kobe Bryant on the floor. That is ridiculous.
Lakers are 53.5 points better with Pau Gasol on the floor. This is also ridiculous.

No other two Lakers come close. In fact, I don't think any other player in the entire NBA (assuming he gets some significant minutes) comes close.

Lakers are 25.5 points worse with Antawn Jamison on the floor. Terrible.
Lakers are 31.9 points worse with Jordan Hill on the floor. Even worse.

That basically just emphasizes how much our bench has been sucking. It's been better without Brown though.

If you use RAPM (adjusted for who the player plays with), then our top 3 players have been Kobe, Gasol, and Howard, which isn't surprising. Their numbers are all pretty close with Kobe being our most important offensive player and Dwight being our most important defensive player.

On the other hand, our worst player has been Hill with Morris following closely behind.

I didn't count players who haven't gotten much playing time.

This isn't anything new. Brown's inability to put players other than his stars in a position to succeed has been an issue ever since he came here.

Jordan Hill is still the man.

Yup

Yeah even through only 7 games those are unbelievable numbers. There really isn't any out there even close whether you look at LeBron, Paul, Durant, etc.

I recall reading a stat on the NBA.com Power Rankings for week 2 I think... They said that Kobe & Gasol had the best +/- in the league at that point...

I don't post there, but I do take a look at a few posters there. I actually don't post on any other NBA forum... But I do take a look at a ton of them...because I'm unemployed and have a lot of free time. :man10:

Hill isn't in there for offense.

Man watching Sessions play so far, and now that we have D'Antoni...I wish he stayed. it would have been awesome to watch Meeks Jamison & Sesh together. Oh well, glad Sessions is doing well there

It's not a stat about offense though it's just saying overall how the team does when a certain player is on and off the court.

Right now with only a 7 game sample numbers will be inflated or deflated though
