2009-2010 Player Pace Index From The APBRMetrics Forum.


While coaches dictate pace on the court more than any other aspect of the game -- for it's one of the few things they can actively influence from the sidelines -- players still have a marginal effect on it, too. Thankfully, however, somebody at the APBRmetrics forum took the time and effort to calculate each players' on-court impact regarding the team's possessions per 48 minutes; it can be found and uploaded onto a spreadsheet here.

This, by the way, is where the Portland Trail Blazers landed on that list.

Here's where Portland Trail Blazers landed on the list regarding possessions per 48 minutes.

  1. Travis Outlaw 93.372
  2. Nicolas Batum 89.293
  3. Jerryd Bayless 88.310
  4. Marcus Camby 88.210
  5. Steve Blake 88.141
  6. Joel Przybilla 88.122
  7. Martell Webster 88.097
  8. Brandon Roy 87.648
  9. Andre Miller 87.161
  10. LaMarcus Aldridge 87.001
  11. Juwan Howard 85.930
  12. Greg Oden 85.755

As you can see, most players have little impact on pace. For the Trail Blazers, the main differences came when Travis Outlaw was on the court chucking the ball mindlessly in a sloppy, inefficient manner -- as well as playing slow, listless defense -- and when Greg Oden was on the hardwood playing down-tempo, methodical basketball with superb efficiency and anchoring the middle.
