Carlos Sandoval of Fansided.com wrote an interesting piece on the NBA 2K13 Ratings.
How do we decide the top 30 NBA players? We look at the PER rankings of each player, an advanced stat that measures per-minute production (the average is always 15). We know that there are issues with PER (because it’s a per-minute stat, so guys who look better with less minutes might have their PER inflated, even when that’s accounted for by having a cut-off the way John Hollinger does), but it’s the most objective way possible.
