Nba.com has some very interesting new statistical tools that are based on the SportVU tracking system. Basically they have installed cameras in every arena that track everything 25 times a second and produce some non standard stats. This early in the season some of the stats aren't all that reliable yet, but I had a good time looking at the player movement stats.
The two I looked at to determine which Blazer was the most active were "miles traveled per 48 minutes" and "average speed". Average speed is not an indicator of speediness as much as it is activeness, as it includes standing still, sliding, backpedaling, etc. So no extra points for a fast player like John Wall unless that player also moves around a lot throughout the game.
My thinking going in just from watching the games was that Batum would be the most active Blazer. He is always running around and active on offense, defense, and transition.
Results? Batum is the top Blazer in each category. But it was also nice to see that Batum is one of the most active players in the league, especially for his position. I put on a filter for minimum 25 minutes/game (how hard is it to be active in short minutes, anyway) and Batum was #4 in the league in average speed behind only Tony Parker, JJ Redick, and Danny Green, and tied for #4 in miles/48 behind those same three. The top twenty was almost exclusively guards, so it was especially nice to see Batum up there with the little guys.
Anyway, some fun stats to keep an eye on as the season progresses
