Unbelievable Power Forward Depth Chart Efficiency Analysis

Unbelievable Power Forward Depth Chart Efficiency Analysis

Postby Snakell Beast on Sat May 03, 2003 6:56 am

Using the players current trends in mathematical ratios of minutes played to stats accumulated (and adjusted to points and rebounds for comparitive purposes and to maximize the PF position), I did a work up of the projected total combined production nightly by our total roster of Power Forwards. Here are the results. Take from them what you will and please chime in on this!

Our Current Combined Nightly Production With our current priority order of Horry / Madsen / Walker / Medvedenko
ppg: 18.5
rpg: 18.2


Our Potential Combined Nightly Production (If we inverted the depth chart to Slava / Samaki / Mark / Rob)
ppg: 22.7
rpg: 18.6

that's great for points, but how do we factor in a starting Euro PF standing with his hands in the air, his back to his man, and no clue as to where the ball is?

Frankly I think we might get more offensive boards from Slava simply because he's so desperate for more shot opportunities. :man12:

CL, you are normally more factually based than that. Slava is never lost because of his own skill level, he is lost because he is unfamiliar with the offense due to lack of floor time. When he gets lost of minutes, he gets more effective on both ends and plays with more continuity. He needs more playing time and I think (for his confidence) that he should be starting, even if he only plays 10-15 minutes a game. And the stats bare that out!

Think about it, if Slava started and got Horry minutes, he could average 15.4 points and 8.2 rebounds. Isn't that pretty damn good? The best part of it is that Slava just turned 24, he might end up being a Rasheed Wallace level player offensively and he CAN play good defense and as Rasho, Vladamir, Vlade, Pedja, and Zydrunas have proven, NBA defense is an ability that you either have early on or can develop eventually, so Slava would ony get better as the season wore on and that means we would have a much deeper bench if we got Stromile Swift, Juwan Howard or Karl Malone. Then we could dump Samaki or Mark and have the PF position be better than mkost teams in the league, instead of our achilles heal!
