The most accurate (low-noise) adjusted plus-minus ratings ever to appear in the public domain.

I love this measure of a player’s worth. It takes a much better look at the impact a player has on defense, something that Hollinger always seems to ignore. Apparently 82 games tweaked the formula to make it more accurate although there are still some obvious anomalies. Some things I noticed: 1. Devin Harris is 8th overall. His defense counts for a lot more with this particular formula. 2. LaMarcus Aldridge is ranked 22nd defensively. This might have more to do with our lack of options when he is off the floor, but it’s nice to see none the less. 3. Gerald Wallace is ranked 23rd defensively and Tayshon Prince is 18th. I love those guys. As with any rating system it has a million flaws, but it seems a little better than the normal plus-minus statistic.
