The stat is a Good Per Minute and a Good/(Good+Bad). Pau blocks shots, rebounds, and doesn't foul or turn it over much. In his case it is a skill issue. Hill is clearly all hustle though. Don't get caught up on the name :)

Directly - the 50/50 stat would be very cool to chart. I'd like to see it!
Indirectly - some stats are difficult to evaluate. I think the Points Per Shot in itself is one of them. You mention Blocks as one you don't like. Presumably that's because unlike Steals, Blocks don't always result in the blocking of a shot that would have gone in, and they don't always give possession back to your team. So Blocks aren't obviously GOOD.
I'd like to see someone do a calculation of how these things typically go - what happens in most cases when there is a block. Which team retains possession, what % of the time does the team previously on offense get the board and score, etc.?
It reminds me of the Kobe Assist - the drive that doesn't fall but which is rebounded and quickly stuffed back in by your team. League wide there's a lowish % likelihood that your team retains possession on missed drives and immediately scores, but on Kobe's drives the numbers are very high.
Over the last two seasons, Kobe had more than 200 of these "assists" - and at one point this year, he had done the following:
107 shots within 7.5' of the basket
63 made by Kobe
--52% of these rebounded by LA
--32% of the misses were put back for a score
So, "of 100 close-range Kobe shots, 59% immediately find the net and 14 more find the net within seconds of being rebounded by a Laker; 83% of Kobe's close range shot attempts become points for the Lakers within five seconds."

Positions 1-3 need a serious boost.
