2005-06 NBA "Roland Ratings"

In the past the "Roland Rating" has been simply the player's on court versus off court net team influence. That's a good number, but certainly not the whole story. Ideally a player rating scheme should encompass

  1. Inividual player production
  2. One-on-one defense
  3. Team success influence
The new charting experiments will allow us to evolve this rating over the course of the season to become more detailed and refined, for now we'll stick with some old standbys in a quick take on the season to date action!

This figures to go down to the wire with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade running neck and neck as they have all season for top billing. Now there's a chance we will start giving the on/off component a slightly heavier weight, but that's only going to help our two leaders since they have significantly better on court/off court plus-minus numbers than the rest of the top ten.

Before we pencil it in as a two man race though, we'd mention that there's a chance that we will dramatically change the 'Rolands' in the next month to reflect our new schemes for player evaluation. So if you're not liking the ratings, don't worry, things could still change!
