The numbers show Jason Williams is the better point guard this season

Who would've thought?

Remember back in the summer when there was an article proposing a potential point guard controversy for the Magic?  We all laughed.  

Jameer was coming off an All-Star season with a PER of over 20 and Jason Williams (who has never been an All-Star or had a PER of 20)  had been retired.  

Thirty-eight games into the season, the comparison seems to be a wash. 

 

FG%    FT%      PTS/40      REB/40    AST/40      TS%             AST%           TO%         USG%        REB%  

.452      .700        12.3             2.8             7.3           57.0             36.6              9.2             15.1              4.0

.413      .818       16.8              4.0             7.1           50.3             26.6             10.6            21.9              5.7

 

Jason is the first line, Jameer is the second.

Jason's PER is 14.25, Jameer's is 13.85. 

Jason is by far the superior distributer, we knew that going into the season.  His assist rate is 40% higher than Jameer's while his turnover rate is lower.  What we didn't anticipate is Jameer's shooting dropping off the cliff while Jason puts up a career high 45%.  

Jason also seems to bring more energy more consistently.  

We know that Jameer is the better player, but it would impossible to tell by watching them this season.  Assuming Nelson continues to struggle, who should be playing more minutes?  SVG has been playing the hot hand, is that the best way to go?
