After noticing that Darko is leading the Magic in the +/- stat this year, I started to wonder how much this stat means. I have looked at the +/- leader on all NBA teams through the 15-16 game mark in the season. I have only included players who have played for at least 40% of the time. My questions are, what do these guys have in common, and is a fluke that Darko finds him self in this grouping? Atl- Josh Childress Bos- Kendrick Perkins Cha- Sean May Chi- Ben Gordon Cle- Damon Jones Dal- Devin Harris Den- Melo Anthony Det- Chauncey Billups GSt- Andris Biedrins Hou- Shane Battier Ind- Jermaine O'Neal LAC- Corry Maggette LAL- Lamar Odom Mem- Dahntay Jones Mia- Dwyane Wade Mil- Michael Redd Min- Keving Garnett NJ- Jason Kidd NO- Peja Stoyakavic NY- Steve Francis Orl- Darko Milicic Phi- Dalembert Pho- Steve Nash Por- Travis Outlaw Sac- Ron Artest SA- Tim Duncan Sea- Rashard Lewis Tor- Anthony Parker (Bosh is a close 2nd) Uta- Matt Harpring Wash- Gilbert Arenas (by a huge margin!) Now, I haven't had a chance to watch many of these teams. But a couple surprises that jump out at me (besides Darko) are Matt Harpring, Anthony Parker, Steve Francis, Damon Jones, Sean May, and Kendrick Perkins. All the rest seem like they are either the best player on their team, or else pretty close to it. Can anyone attest to the effectiveness of those surprises? i.e. things they provide that don't show up in the stats. Ben was always a big +/- guy with us even though his stats weren't eye-popping.
