  2. I mean maybe? My biggest issue with this project...

    I mean maybe? My biggest issue with this project is that it wasn't made clear if the ranking is relative to era or how each player would scale in the modern era.
  3. Payton and Zeke weren't great off ball defenders,...

    Payton and Zeke weren't great off ball defenders, the other guys sure, they'd give Steph a tougher time. Although hand checks slowing down off ball action really isn't that great of an angle to take...

    Well yeah, The name of the game is, how do you maintain value offense on better and better teams? I.e. ceiling raising vs floor raising. Curry can lead you to an all time great offense whether he's...

    A lot of dumb noise going on in this thread that's not interesting, but Kawhi's placement is something of actual interest.

    I can see him as high as 19, but I myself have him around 26. My issue...

    I know you mean well and aren't being disingenuous in your arguments, which I really appreciate. You should hop on the PSD Discord to talk hoops man. We got a good thing going in there.

    Also if we really wanted to engage with a PER and Win Shares approach only, Moses's peak single season PER is 113th, and his single season Win Shares peak is 97th.....so uhhhhh......

    Lmao yes it is. If anything, literally the opposite is true. If two players have the exact same production, but one player does so on less minutes, then he's literally more productive per possession...

    What's wrong with that? If we are talking about a good player on a winning team who is contributing points/rebounds/assists/etc. then aren't the more minutes played the more valuable they are? Why...

    Alright so cumulative stats like win shares and VORP are essentially a minutes played award. They have no methodology to actually pin point a player's direct impact on the court, isolated from...

    I mean i'm also not a fan of the framing of the question itself. 1 game? In what era? With what teammates? Against what opponent? If we don't have these answers then we should immediately look at the...
