So some of you are aware I have started a website recently with a few people on here from BCP. We are pleased to announce we have developed our very own NBA Draft stat!!!
This is called the Draft Franchise Rater (DFR): This stat tells us which team makes the best decisions with their first round picks, regardless of position. It must be emphasized that the DFR does NOT rate which teams have drafted the best players! The DFR is a way to measure how good a team’s scouting department and decision-making is come draft time.
Check it out now!!! Also it is our official website launch today so make sure you check out the rest of the site. We have our own NBA Lottery Bigboard and prospect analysis on Dieng and Burke so far
Interesting, I will definetely be taking a look.
1. LeBron James-MIA - 14.5
2. Chris Paul-LAC - 12.7
3. Kevin Durant-OKC - 12.2
4. Kevin Love-MIN - 10.0
Kemba's Win Shares this year was 4.8 That's lower than a lot of clearly worse players who benefitted by being on better teams
Comparing him to other PGs who have a higher WS than him, and bearing in mind that there isn't much difference between, let's say, 4.8 and 5.4 of Jeremy Lin (that's half a win), you can see that they are rated, to a degree, accordingly. It takes into account the efficiency, usage rate, and the impact one has on winning a game. It's hardly perfect, I know, but it's the closest thing to it.
One can't quantify skill, but seeing as this game is all about winning and not individual performance, one is better off with a statistic that gauges the impact on wins when determining who is the "better" player during any given season.
