Warrior Effect Rankings/ Venn-Diagram

So, we're supposed to make the playoffs next year, right?

 

So, let's take a look at our roster and look at the strengths/weaknesses we have...

Mainly on offense/defense/rebounding...

I will not include Monta/Maggette on purpose, just becuse they may not be here next year...

I'm going to chart every player's production in rebounding, offense, and defense...

The point is to see what type of lineup stresses what...

And what how different players will benefit the lineup, come next year...

They information will be net statistics based on play during the 09-10 season and will display their production while on the court.

(Note: The defensive +/- will be switched to indicate that a positive number (+) will indicate good defensive ability.)

To put in requested perspective, here are some stats of star players:

Kobe Bryant:

Points per 100 poss.: +12.3

Pts allowed per 100 poss: +3.3

Ast. Field Goals: -1%

Off. Rebounding: +0.1%

TOT: -0.4%

Net Turnovers: -2

Win%: 72.6%

Kelenna Azubuike:

Points per 100 poss: -5.6

Pts allowed per 100 poss: +0.8

Ast. Field Goals: -5%

Off rebounding: +1.4%

Def rebounding: +3.9%

TOT: +2.6%

Net Turnovers: +1

Win%: 44.4%

Summary: Kelenna isn't a huge factor offensively, though he does choke the ball movement a bit. However, his defensive production and his rebounding are huge. Also, his winning % is not bad, though he only played 9 games this season.

Reggie Williams:

Points per 100 poss: +1.4

Pts allowed per 100 poss.: -4.1

Ast. Field Goals: +0%

Off rebounding: -2.9%

Def rebounding: -2.0%

TOT: -2.4%

Net Turnovers: -2

Win%: 43.5%

Summary: Reggie isn't a great defensive player, but he isn't a horrible one. We had injury after injury, and there really was no way to tell whether he is a good team defender or a good team rebounder. His winning % is decent, and we turn the ball over less with him.

Anthony Morrow:

Points per 100 poss: +3.1

Pts allowed per 100: +0.5

Ast. Field Goals: +2%

Off rebounding: +1.5%

Def rebounding: +0.7%

TOT: +1.1%

Net Turnovers: +0

Win%: 40.0%

Summary: So, it turns out Morrow isn't a horrible, horrible defender. He's actually not a bad team defender. However, make him match up on a good offensive player, and you'd think the floor was wet. His rebounding is not a surprise. Morrow can rebound the ball, offensively and defensively, pretty well.

Anthony Randolph:

Points per 100 poss: -2.9

Pts allowed per 100: -1.4

Ast. Field Goals: -2%

Off rebounding: +2.1%

Def rebounding: -1.9%

TOT: +0.1%

Net Turnovers: +1

Win%: 46.9%

Summary: Yes, Randolph is not that great an offensive player, not that great a defender, and chokes the ball movement. However, he's an absolute vacuum on the boards. I'm not surprised at defensive rebounding. Any coach that is stupid enough to put AR at the 5 will get that kind of production.

Brandan Wright:

Points per 100 poss: +0.0

Pts allowed per 100: +1.1

Ast. Field Goals: +3%

Off rebounding: +2.5%

Def rebounding: -2.0%

TOT: +0.2%

Net Turnovers: +0

Win%: 39.5%

Summary: I had to dig back into the 08-09. The good news is, he has made major strides since his rookie season. Wright is really a null PF, or a placeholder PF, sort of what Ronny was back in the 07-08 season w/ the Lakers. (Yeah, that's how bad our front line is.)

Andris Biedrins:

Points per 100 poss: -6.4

Pts allowed per 100: +0.9

Ast. Field Goals: +1%

Off rebounding: -0.1%

Def rebounding: +2.1%

TOT: +1.0%

Net Turnovers: +3

Win%: 35.5%

Summary: Please note, first of all, that this Biedrins' worst year. The sad part is, however, that he's supposed to be 'our best rebounder', yet his effect on rebounding is not very substantial. Other than that, he's not a horrible defender, and does not turn the ball over much.

Ronny Turiaf:

Points per 100 poss: +3.6

Pts allowed per 100: +4.5

Ast. Field Goals: +4%

Off rebounding: -0.3%

Def rebounding: -0.1%

TOT: -0.2%

Net Turnovers: +0

Win%: 46.2%

Summary: Ronny is our best defender and a very valuable player. While he isn't the best rebounder, this is because his natural position is the PF. Of course, you know the story about that.

Stephen Curry:

Points per 100 poss: +2.6

Pts allowed per 100: -0.8

Ast. Field Goals: +4%

Off rebounding: -3.5%

Def rebounding: -0.3%

TOT: -1.9%

Net Turnovers: +2

Win%: 36.4%

Summary: He isn't horrible defensively, but he isn't good. This will probably change as he bulks up. But for now, I think he plays the passing lanes very well. As you can see, our offense is a lot better with him in, the ball movement, everything. And, because he played 80 games, his winning % and rebounding is skewed because of our injuries.

 Vladamir Radmonavic:

Points per 100 poss: -3.8

Pts allowed per 100: +1.2

Ast. Field Goals: -6%

Off rebounding: +2.0

Def rebounding: +0.7

TOT: +1.7

Net Turnovers: +0

Win%: 43.8%

Summary: Totally unneccesary, but I wanted to see what kind of an effect Radmonavic had on the team, if it all. Turns out he's a pretty good rebounder and a decent defender. The only thing: He's playing our of position. He's an SF. The only horrible thing is that he really chokes the ball movement, really badly. Other than that, he's a pretty good player.

So, after evaluating every player, we can create different lineups stressing different things based on the statistics:

All-Defense team:

PG- Reggie Williams

SG- Kelenna Azubuike

SF- Vladamir Radmonavic

PF- Brandan Wright

C- Ronny Turiaf

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All-Rebounding team:

PG- Stephen Curry

SG- Kelenna Azubuike

SF- Anthony Morrow

PF- Anthony Randolph

C- Andris Biedrins

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All-Offense team:

PG- Stephen Curry

SG- Reggie Williams

SF- Anthony Morrow

PF- Brandan Wright

C- Ronny Turiaf

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Royce Young, the TrueHoops affiliate writer for the Oklahoma City Thunder, made a Venn-Diagram to show how valuable Kevin Durant was. And obviously, I had to steal the idea. (You can totally tell by the way I screwed up and accidentally chipped away a couple lines.)

Curry isn't an above average defender, yet. However, I put him in the center just because he plays the passing lanes so well. AR and Wright should probably be switched, but I am assuming a summer workout w/Bosh should help him offensively.

I can't wait for next season to start. And, I'm pretty sure being invited to the national team should help Curry bulk up and become a bit better, player-wise.
