Block percentage is an estimate of the percentage of opponent two-point field goal attempts blocked by the player while he was on the floor. It's a solid stat.

Didn't qualify from minutes it looks like.

But he's at 7.8%, which, jesus. Olajuwon's season high was 7.0, career 5.4.

Why only two-point shots?

Yeah, that's an odd distinction, not sure why. Though how many times do you see a three-point shot blocked?

Rare indeed. Just seemed like an odd choice given that it is probably not going to lower the percentages for true rim protectors.

Yeah, no clue what a versatility index is.

eta: The Versatility Index is a metric that measures a player's ability to produce in more than one statistic. In this case we are using points, assists, and rebounds. The average player will score around a five on the index, while top players score above 10. It's a Hollinger stat so, eh.

Versatility Index Formula=[(PPG)*(RPG)*APG)]^(0.333)

This isn't getting into real fancy stats, but no one has averaged 25-8-8 since Jordan in 89, this year 3 guys are doing it:

That is pretty nutty.

I think the most impressive stat there is Westbrook doing what he's been doing in just under 35 min/game.

Lebron is doing it at age 32.

Argue all you want about it now, but when he's done, he the GOAT

Also managing to get up 6 more shots in that time than LeBron or Harden.

Definitely an argument to be made.

That's great. And so happy to see that 2000 class of assholes had been the worst.

But you should totally put all your faith in draft picks and not cash-in on a star player if you have disposable assets, Bill. Coulda had a boat or you coulda had a box which could contain anything - even a boat!
