Ranking the Point Guards Using BE Metrics

I thought since John Hollinger can come up with his own metrics well then so can we.  Here's how this works: Rank your top 10 point guards (best to worst), then rank them by cost, meaning what it's going to take to get them (cheapest to highest).  Add all the numbers up for each player.  The player or players with the lowest number is first on your priority list.  Of course, as with Hollinger's PER you have to take common sense into account.  But try it and see what you get.

Here's mine:

Top 10:

1. Chris Paul

2. Deron Williams

3. Tony Parker

4. Rajon Rondo

5.  Devin Harris

6. Chauncey Billups

7. Derrick Rose

8. Rodney Stuckey

9. Steve Nash

10. Andre Miller

Cost (what it would cost the Blazers to get the player):

1. Andre Miller

2. Steve Nash

3. Rodney Stuckey

4. Rajon Rondo

5. Devin Harris

6. Chauncey Billups

7. Tony Parker

8. Derrick Rose

9. Deron Williams

10. Chris Paul

Rajon Rondo (8), Devin Harris (10), Tony Parker (10), Chris Paul (11), Deron Williams (11), Rodney Stuckey (11), Steve Nash (11), Andre Miller (11), Chauncey Billups (12), Derrick Rose (15)

Right away I would eliminate Tony Parker, CP3, DWill, Billups and Rose...as those guys are pretty much unattainable.  Which leaves us with a pretty good prioritzed list:

1. Rondo

2. Harris

3. Stuckey

4. Nash

5. Miller

Go and get it done Pritchard!

I'm sure you all will come up with your own numbers.  Give it try and see what you get.

And yes, I know this feels a little like coming up with your porn name...by the way mine is Sam 21.  But hopefully it's moderately more insightful.
