Has anyone read this article here? It takes an in-depth look at stats in basketball. Does anyone know where I can find more articles like this?

Oh, and for some off the cuff humor, try here.

This is what my whole thread was basically about. Thanks for another article. You have to be willing to go outside what the basketball world is used to. Some people can't handle stats like this, but then they use simpler ones to argue. What I want is a more developed stat than ppg,apg,spg,etc and the worst of all W-L. Like I said some players are worth more to a win than players on teams with good records (like Shareef Abdur-Rahim in this article). Yet, he didnt get any credit even though he was worth more. His teammates and situation fogged his own performace. This is a major problem that is repeated on this board and on every sports show. People just seem to ignore this obvious flaw in player evalution. I dont know, maybe it's too complex for them to think about.
