    Also per is also based off of league average, so comparing people from different eras is going to have some variance. Also comparing WAde to someone who has finished their career is foolish, considering most of Wades career has been spent in his prime lol

    3. Shaquille O'Neal 26.43
    4. David Robinson* 26.18
    5. Wilt Chamberlain* 26.13
    6. Dwyane Wade 25.62
    7. Chris Paul 25.47
    8. Bob Pettit* 25.35
    9. Tim Duncan 24.76
    10. Neil Johnston* 24.69
    11. Charles Barkley* 24.63
    12. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar* 24.58
    13. Magic Johnson* 24.11
    14. Karl Malone* 23.90
    15. Dirk Nowitzki 23.63
    16. Hakeem Olajuwon* 23.59

    18. Larry Bird* 23.50
    19. Kobe Bryant 23.48
    20. Kevin Garnett 23.25

    Well, according to that list...

    David Robinson has a higher PER than Magic

    Barkley has a higher PER than Kareem

    Wade has a higher PER than Duncan

    Malone has a higher PER than Hakeem

    Dirk has a higher PER than Bird

    Lebron has a higher PER than Duncan

    Barkley has a higher PER than Hakeem

    Barkley has a higher PER than Magic

    Wade has a higher PER than Bird


    How many more inconsistencies do you want me to find?
    Just thought I'd fix that for ya.

    Anyone with a working brain can understand that not because a player has a better PER he's better than another its basically that player doing more on the floor statistically per minute that he's given than another player. More so in terms of offense than defensively.

    JUST BECAUSE ONE PLAYER HAS A BETTER PER THAN ANOTHER DOES NOT MAKE HIM A BETTER PLAYER IT MEANS HE HAS A HIGHER PER PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

    Using career PER to say that one player is better than another is like me saying Allen Iverson is a better scorer than Kobe Bryant because he has a higher career scoring average. According to some idiots around here (the usual suspects sadly) I would be right, since they seem to believe that that's how stats works.

    I use stats in damn near every player evaluation I make and the same goes for %100 of the open minded rational posters on this forum what we don't do however is use them wrongly for purposes in which they weren't intended for without the use of context. If I did I'd be running around saying A.I. should have been on the All D team on more occasions than Kobe since he averaged more steals than damn near anyone else who played at the G position during his time.

    Stats aren't the end all us "nerds" or "stat guys" like some idiots like to call us always say this time and time again but apparently they are to dumb, dense or slow to see this.

    Ive seen more people say what you just described than actual people who abuse it as the end all. Just saying, I would like to see these posters.
    Yo Kobe, get at me bro, we'd have a good time, man

Guys who actually know what PER is and what it represents have never said that around here.
    I believe he was referencing guys like amose who make that claim as a way to try and discredit it. Basically I think he's agreeing with you
