I suppose it contributes to the idea that Lowry and Amir are the heart and soul of the team/ make winning plays etc...
numbers aren't my forte though so hopefully some of the more gifted among us will tear this up a bit and show us the guts
Would like to know more. Seems like it is a relative ORAT and DRAT.ESPN wrote:
Interesting how low DD scored on his ORPM...and how bad Val's ORPM was, as well as Ross' DRPM.
This is a podcast featuring Zack Lowe and Kevin Pelton.
It really helped me get a better idea of what rpm is and what it tells us.
-rpm reports on what happened rather than what will happen. if a player is put in a different role, he WILL have different results
-4s that don't stretch the floor or play defence are bad
-big men are much more important to defence, guards are much more important to offence (in top 40 defensive players, only 6 1/2/3, in top 40 offensive players only 9 4/5 (and most have a jump shot))
-from a team building perspective, the player's numbers relative to their position is more important (so an average defender at the 4 is equivalent to a net negative defender at the 2)
