    His PER and WS/48 are higher, but he missed 25.8% of his games. Basketball Reference in the expanded league player pages just lists one advanced stat for the leaders - it's called WIN SHARES.

    Don't like it, pick it up with basketball-reference.
    Bingo.

    WTF...just because it didn't exist doesn't mean that it's not applicable. Not to say that I agree with it either.

    What makes WinShares to be so much more valuable than PER in your opinion?

    I always feel that we should look at the entire picture, not just one stat. I tell this to the PER guys too. It should be a cumulative outlook on all stats, accomplishments, accolades, environments, opponents, teammates, era, and degree of difficulty compared to other greats. WinShares is but a cherry in one of the many pieces of pie it takes to truly rank a great player.

    Do you have any other evidence other than Winshares? Or is WinShares your end all be all stat? Everyone seems to have one on here.
    He missed 25.8% of his regular season games. That means he can't amass stats and wins for his team. If Wade is your binky and you don't like it, I'm sorry - I'm trying to be objective.

    McHale missed 17.1% of his games in '86 and he managed to amass more goodies then Wade did.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    What? So there is no way to calculate PER and that's to be counted against McHale.

    PER has been ripped quite a bit here over the years, search in advanced stats for the answer.

    That's fine with me. McHale was a better percentage shooter then Wade, better rebounder, able to guard more players at a very high level than Wade could. Wade was a better passer, ball handler, and ball hawk.

    You started this phase of the conversation by saying Wade > McHale.

    I have now provided statistical evidence as well as eye witness accounts that this simply isn't true. It's on you, not me to prove your original claim is true.

    ESPN has Rose ranked at 5th best yet he missed half of last season.

    Where are your eye witness accounts? And how have you proven otherwise? All you did is provide their WinShare numbers. Again, how does WinShares proove that one player is better than the other. What about ppg, rpg, apg, ts% big game moments and other intangibles that don't show up on a stat sheet like the fact that Wade draws away more defenders than McHale. Again, why do you find WinShares to be so telling of a players greatness.

    ESPN usually screws things up. I imagine that that they were using of blend of subjective perception, his recent MVP, and his partial season to place him.

    If he played the whole season at the rate he played at he would not have been top 5. More like #8-12 range. This is based on last year and last year only.

    Me. I probably missed two Celtic games that whole year, and saw 5 of them in person. I was also a college player, and an AAU Coach for many years. I saw Miami play every playoff game after the first round and another 15 or so.

    You said Wade > McHale, and its not true by eye, nor by rebounding totals, FG%, or defense. McHale is also clearly one of the 5 greatest low post offensive players of all time. Wade certainly isn't top 5 at anything - other then all around SG ranking.

    I never limited myself to just Win Shares BTW - and have mentioned other factors already. I have no idea why you are trying to pin that on me - unless it is the failure of your original claim.

    Charles Barkely said McHale is the best player he ever played against BTW, and he drew a large amount of defenders. More then Parish, and maybe as much as Bird since McHale wasn't much of a passer (black hole was one of his nicknames). Didn't matter, take a good long look at his FG%'s - those were not all dunks, his most common shot was a fallaway, probably the highest % fallaway in NBA history.

    Not sure what this has to do with Win shares but whatever. Did he have a top 5 season last year? No. Because of all the nagging injuries he suffered last season. Is a healthy Rose a top 5 player? Debatable, but personally I'd put Paul LeBron, Dwight, Durant above him, after that then Wade, Westbrook, Love and maybe Kobe can create a great argument against him.
