Franchise “Wins Above Average” Leaders

by Neil Paine

For my LeBron James piece today, I had to calculate player “winning percentages” using stats from Dean Oliver’s book Basketball on Paper. Using the percentage of team minutes a player has played and his team’s # of scheduled games, I can also turn those winning percentages into player Wins Above Average, or the number of wins a player would add to a hypothetical average team.

Since the hoops cognoscenti has been debating all week who the “Greatest Laker” is, I thought I’d tally those numbers up for every player since 1974 (not including ABA data) and list each franchise’s top (and bottom) five players in cumulative WAA:
