Unadjusted plus/minus for trios

http://www.82games.com/trios0708.htm

via Dwyer's blog on Yahoo!,  thought this was cool, taking all different combinations of three players possible from each team's roster (that's a lot of work! Hundreds of possible combos, like POB, Perovic and Wright!!) and finding the trio with the max plus/minus. You'll be surprised who the Warrior's "best" trio is, hint, it's not who you'd assume it'd be.

I like the plus minus stat because I feel it gives more information on how much impact a player has for his team. The efficiency stats are good for comparing players from different teams w/ different schedules, but it's hard to derive a team specific ranking of players. W's fans know Stephen Jackson helps this team win, but PER tells us that he's a middling small forward. Jax's plus/minus isn't overwhelming (+8.3), but his PER is slightly over average (15.2) (PER average is set to 15 for the NBA) From those stats however, we can say that Jax, on average, creates another 8 points for W's on a given night through offense and defense, but compared to other SF on individual stats, is an average player. Anyway, I thought that was an interesting link.
