Stat of the Day

New, comments

Todays stat is Hollinger's debut of his power rankings.  You can read all about the formula he uses to come up with his rankings here.

His system currently places Phoenix at the top spot and Dallas number two.

I'm a pretty big fan of Hollinger's PER ratings and reading over the method of his power rankings it seems like a pretty clever idea as well, but I can't help but think it's kind of pointless.

While it makes sense to try and rank players by more than just points or just rebounds to try and quantify their performance, the NBA already has a built-in ranking system for entire teams. And Dallas is number one in that system.

Hollinger's rankings are worth checking out anyway.
