And football and boxing and other
I call this page stats because guess what it contains some basketball stats. Some of these stats are your common garden variety and others are a little more interesting. I have always liked looking at stats especially as a little kid in the 70's. Of course as you get older you realize their are other criteria to determine how good a team or player may be. But i have noticed that the great teams and players almost always have the numbers that backup what we already know about them. For instance, Michael Jordan is widely considered that greatest basketball player ever and his stats also confirm this. We seen it on the court and then you look it up and their it is. Confirmed. Many individuals have come up with formulas that put everything a player does good and bad and comes up with a score. And yes Michael Jordan's score is almost always the highest. What Michael Jordan did was perform at a high level with high quantity and quality. For instance he shot alot and made alot. But i sometimes think that people sometimes confuse the two. I recently saw people arguing over who should be MVP and one guys entire argument was this guy should be MVP because he's leading the league in scoring. That's a nice stat to lead in. But if that was the criteria for determining the MVP than we have gotten it wrong the majority of the time. This is a subject i will also write about because i have my list for yearly MVP and i do think they have gotten it wrong a few times. Although it doesn't have anything to do with scoring titles.
WORST PLUS/MINUS SINCE 1970
1. Jason Kidd -3014
2. Allen Iverson -2972
3. Kobe Bryant -2762
I am compiling the rest of this list, but this is the top 3 so far. This stat compares shots taken versus shots made. These are the three worst since 1970. In other words Jason Kidd has missed 3014 more shots than he has made. I choose 1970 because the year before was the 1st year over 10 players shot over 50% for the year. I consider this the modern era. Before this time shooting % was very low. update 6-21-16
