Which stat category do you guys think is the MOST under looked, meaning, a stat category that isn't being paid attention to a whole lot and should.

the most under looked stat is not a stat :)
like the energy and the hustle you dont see in the stat

You think too hard about it :p
Obviously it is offensive rebounds, it gives your team a whole new possesion.

I agree, offensive rebounds. Each one could easily equal 2 pts off a put-back or a kick-out. Also BA (Block attempt) because that attempt could've been crucial.

BA does not mean block attempt. It stands for "block against" meaning the number of times you were blocked by an opponent.

My bad. I knew it meant that you got blocked though. I thought it was like your attempt was blocked.

yea... haha close enough.
when i first saw it on the boxscores, i thought it was block attempt too. but i thought it doesn't really makes sense because almost every shot is challenged, and you'll attempt to block a shot everytime. :p

Haha true. Dwight Howard would average like 10 BAPG.

It has to be assists and Im not talking about Nash's 10 or cp3's I'm talking about Garnet's 4 or Duncan's 3, thats 2 or 3 points that you most likely made happen.

what i cant believe isnt seperated most of the time is 2pt and 3pt shooting %'s.

a guard with a lower FG% possibly gets a bad rep, even if he is a better 3pt shooter.
hypothetically, a player could be a better 2pt, AND 3pt shooter, and still have a lower FG% if he takes alot of threes.

i must agree. good point.

I think that the NBA should come out with a new stat. a stat that shows you how positive or negitive a player is points wise. Like if Noah plays and scores 13 points but gives up 17 to the players he was guarding then Noah would be -4. then if someone scores 10 but gives up only 5 the hole game he would be +5. Points scored a game is great but points given up is even more important.

MOST UNDERLOOKED STAT IS POINTS GIVEN UP. HANDS DOWN. KOBE CAN SCORE AS 50 POINTS IN A GAME BUT IF WADE PUTS UP 150 POINTS ON HIM, THEY ARE SCREWED. I MAY HAVE KINDA OVEREXAGERATED. O WELL

yes and no.
because that would be making the NBA into even more individual matchup. team defense is key. a lot of times, teams have different strategies on stopping a team.
either stopping the rest of the team and let one man do the scoring, or slow down the franchise player and force the teammates to make shots.

so it would be nearly impossible to calculate those stats.

bruce bowen, battier, etc would be ranked near the bottom of the league even though they play the best defense in basketball. while franchise players with no defense ranked highest since they never have to guard the big scorers.
