"There are lies, there are damn lies, and then there are statistics."

I will concede that Hollinger's PER isn't as ridiculous as what Cuban has done here. But Cuban's work illustrates how weighting certain stats over others in the process of creating a single number to rank players can give you a worthless result.

The Per is the best statistic you can use to measure a player but not perfrect. I would have to go with the PER, 82games.com clutch stats and Watching the game to tell you about a player and his worth. Plenty of guys get points on a fast break team and others get points in the half court. I think it all depends. But if you asked me PER is as good a stat you are going to get. Cuban is just trying to cover up his fkup with the devin harris trade...
