Blazer Starter Hollinger "Value Added" Rankings

ESPN has ratings by position of NBA players using Hollinger's "value added," or VORP (Value Over Replacement Player). The definition appears at the bottom.

Using these ratings:

Aldridge ranks #2 of 77 PF

Lillard ranks #4 of 71 PG

Matthews ranks #6 of 68 PG

Batum ranks #6 of 61 SF

Lopez ranks #15 of 52 C

So your can see that four our starting five are in the top 10% of players at their position in the league. No wonder our record is so good. (One caveat is that this metric is PER-based, which measures offensive productivity. Defense might be a different story.

GO BLAZERS!!!

Value Added - the estimated number of points a player adds to a team’s season total above what a 'replacement player' (for instance, the 12th man on the roster) would produce. Value Added = ([Minutes * (PER - PRL)] / 67). PRL (Position Replacement Level) = 11.5 for power forwards, 11.0 for point guards, 10.6 for centers, 10.5 for shooting guards and small forwards
