The All-PER Teams


Most of us here are relatively familiar with John Hollinger's PER stat. At 82games, they keep track of both PER and PER-against. Out of curiosity, I wanted to see who had high PER and low PER-against stats, and who had a high PER differential (PER minus PER-against). I looked only at players that played at least 10% of their team's minutes at a position - if you're playing less than 5 minutes at a position, it's not really where you're playing, in my opinion. After the break, the PER team, the PER-against team, the All-PER team, and the Razzies.

PER team (highest positive PER)

PG: Chris Paul (33.5), Tony Parker (25.9), Devin Harris (24.0)

Razzie: Jordan Farmar (11.1)

SG: Dwyane Wade (32.4), Kobe Bryant (26.9), Manu Ginobili (25.5)

Razzie: Quinton Ross (6.5)

SF: LeBron James (34.4), Danny Granger (24.6), Joe Johnson (23.4)

Razzie: Adam Morrison (6.4)

PF: LeBron James (37.9), Dirk Nowitzki (25.9), Shawn Marion (24.5)

Razzie: Brian Cardinal (9.0)

C: Dwight Howard (28.6), Chris Bosh (26.5), Pau Gasol & Al Jefferson (26.3)

Razzie: Jason Collins (3.9)

 

PER-against team (lowest PER-against)

PG: Ronald Murray (11.8), Raymond Felton (13.0), Ramon Sessions (14.1)

Razzie: Jason Kidd (21.7)

SG: Wally Szczerbiak (6.8), Shane Battier (12.0), Ray Allen (12.3)

Razzie: Monta Ellis (20.3)

SF: Wally Szczerbiak (11.8), Ron Artest (12.3), Linas Kleiza (12.6)

Razzie: Rodney Carney (19.9)

PF: Emeka Okafor (11.0), Tayshaun Prince (12.6), Brandon Bass (13.2)

Razzie: Anthony Randolph (22.2)

C: Brandon Bass (13.2), Brad Miller (13.4), Zydrunas Ilgauskas (13.8)

Razzie: Charlie Villanueva (27.4)

 

All-PER team (best PER differential)

PG: Chris Paul (16.3), Tony Parker (9.2), Jameer Nelson (7.5)

Razzie: Sebastian Telfair (-7.0)

SG: Dwyane Wade (17.0), Kobe Bryant (12.8), Manu Ginobili (10.8)

Razzie: Dahntay Jones (-9.0)

SF: LeBron James (20.8), Joe Johnson (10.0), Danny Granger (9.3)

Razzie: Adam Morrison (-10.8)

PF: LeBron James (23.7), Dirk Nowitzki (11.7), Emeka Okafor (9.6)

Razzie: Josh Powell (-10.0)

C: Dwight Howard (12.8), Yao Ming (10.4), Pau Gasol (9.3)

Razzie: Malik Allen (-17.1)

 

 

The surprises to me were:

Adam Morrison can't shoot.

Dwight Howard's defensive PER isn't that great. I'm guessing this is because he does a lot of help defense, and a good passer can sometimes get the ball to his man when he comes off to help.

Dwyane Wade is disgusting. So is LeBron James. We already knew both of these facts, but they're worth restating.

Jameer Nelson is more competent than he gets credit for - he's not top three on either offense or defense, but he's top three combined.

Brandon Bass apparently knows a few defensive tricks - he was #3 at PF and #1 at C, despite being "undersized."

Malik Allen isn't even D-League material.

A fair number of big name players can't defend worth a darn (I'm looking at you, Kidd and Ellis).
