This is kinda cool.
He's got lotsa charts, but I figure posting them in the thread might drain his bandwidth to much. Head over and read the post, then let me know what you think.In my less than complimentary analysis, I looked at some numbers assessing Rush’s defensive production. The idea was that maybe his defensive production, which is not always captured accurately by PER, outweighed his sub-par production in other areas. In that initial analysis I looked at some numbers and found his defensive impact to be pretty minimal.
I signed up for a MySynergy sports account last week, and one of the first things I did was look at Rush’s defensive stats, with the idea of revisiting this issue. What I found was quite surprising. The first thing that popped out at me was that he held his counterpart to a FG% under 40.0% in all seven possession categories tracked by Synergy. Impressed by these numbers I looked for some other players for comparison.
Short version: Of the players examined, only Ron Artest had a lower PPP (points per possession). Apparently not many people are scoring efficiently on Brandon.
