Ranking the NBAs Power Forwards by WinRate
As part of my preseason buildup here on Bucks Diary I am using the Win Profile statistics that I spent a great part of the summer calculating (I'm only partially exagerrating -- I think it took me about 100 hours... but a lot of that time was spent putzing around) to compile lists of the most productive "projected" starters at each position on each team (according to Foxsports.com).
Remember, this is not a "30 best" listing, this is simply a listing that follows the results of my calculations. So there are some results that will be surprising. PLEASE take issue with anything you disagree with. Call me a moron, say this isn't no kind "of a blog"... (read the back comments to get the reference), whatever, I like controversy... I didn't spend 100 hours punching that stupid calculator just for the results to lay there like a fried egg on the pavement. My stats are certainly not the be all and end all of basketball statistics... and they won't get any better unless they get critiqued.
In fact, I came up with the concept of individual Defensive Win Score only after I made the comment that the Bucks ought to build around Mo Williams because he had a high Win Score and Pressey25 ripped me and said thats stupid, you can't build around a guy who plays no defense, and I thought about it and decided he was right, and then I came up with a method... for better or worse... that holds guys like Williams accountable on the defensive end. So far it works. We'll see.
I gotta fly, so no time to comment today on the Power Forwards list, and that accounts for the rambling post. I'll follow up tomorrow and do better with my prose. Sorry.
