Now what?

I’ve marveled at the Nuggies all year. But when I have looked more closely at the players, I see a 41-win team (that is, average NBA talent). When I have looked at the rotations (other...

Hee, hee, McGee

Don't look now but McGee has the highest PER of any center in the league. Also, his PER is in the top 10 of everybody in the league. He's not playing many minutes, but he's playing hard. I...

Another view

And now for a statistic that everybody loves to hate, the PER. After two games, here are the PERs for the starters: McGee - 22.1 Wall - 15.7 Lewis - 12.2 Crawford - 4.4 Blatche - 2.1 Here are...

Taking stock

For a team to succeed in the NBA, it requires a collection of individual talent and a synergy among the players. For simplicity, let’s use 82game’s Simple Rating to see where the Wiz stand and...

McGee's Future with the Wiz?

We know big men take a longer time to develop than other players.  See http://www.82games.com/wong1.htm The question posed here is what to expect from Javale McGee. One way to estimate a player’s...

Trade talk

Does any team see value in Blatche, assuming that good coaching can get him back on the right track? If so, how about Blatche, Armstrong and Martin to the Warriors for Gadzuric and a draft pick.?...

Grading the rebuilding so far

Who's responsible for this mess?

The team is 7-22 and seems to look for ways to lose.  Off the court, it's been a fiasco for years.  The draft picks seem to go unnurtured, or are just plain bad.  The medical advice seems...

82 games stats are out

 see http://www.82games.com/1011/1011WAS.HTM No surprises to me. Flip would probably disagree with them. For example, McGee's stats are much better than Armstrong's. Similarly, Hinrich is no...

Rebounding

The Wiz are last in the league in rebounding.  So the logical place to point is McGee and Blatche. However, McGee and Blatche are averaging 9.8 and 8.0 rebounds per 36 minutes. Armstrong and Yi are...

+/- Stats

  The conventional wisdom on this board is that Armstrong is destroying McGee in terms of +/- stats, although no sources are provided. As far as I can tell, Armstrong is 50% worse than McGee...

Who gets the lowest rating?

Blatche didn't bring his game, even when not double-teamed. McGee offerred no inside help-defense. Thorton was outmatched. Hinrich tried hard, but didn't offer much. The bench, excluding...

Wall's 3 point shot

Michael Jordan hit 17% of his 3 point attempts in his first year.  It didn't improve much in his first four years.  Nevertheless, his FG percentage remained near 50% through out his career. His 3...

Ranking the combos

  When Howard returns to action, I envision Arenas, Wall and Hinrich splitting the minutes at the 1 and 2 with spot duty by a 4th guard depending on the game situation.  I’d rate this backcourt as...

The SF Puzzle

With Wall, Arenas, Blatche and McGee in the starting line-up, what’s missing? On offense, Wall brings the ability to drive to the hoop and handle the ball.  Arenas and Blatche can hit jumpers. ...

Why the Heat Won't Win

Arenas has more value elsewhere

We all know that Arenas isn't worth the value of his contract to any team. But more to the point, he has more value to other teams than to the Wiz (particularly given the Wiz focus on youth...

Question for the stats guys

After Haywood left, McGee averaged 10 points, 6.5 boards and 2.2 blocks over an average of roughly 23+ minutes per game for the rest of the season. Over the last 8 games, he averaged 13 points,...
