Re: Trades,Free Agency, Draft Thread
It's contextual, like any other stat. That's why you have to watch the games to understand the boxscores.
Mario Chalmers +/- doesn't tell you he's better than James or Wade, but it may tell you that the Heat are better when Chalmers is on the court as opposed to whatever other lineups they use. And that's what matters. It's a team game.
