The Los Angeles Lakers have been playing really strong basketball over the last ten games and it seems like almost every player on the team has been stepping and contributing, which makes these rankings really difficult.
In order to rank each Los Angeles Lakers player fairly and accurately, I’m going to use six different metrics.
First, I’ll show everyone’s per game traditional stats such as points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals. I’ll also use https://ift.tt/2EuIkbS Value Over Replacement Player (VORP) and Win Shares (WS) because these two advanced stats indicate a player’s overall impact throughout the season.
I’ll also use two stats from www.nba.com: Offensive Rating (OFFRTG) and Defensive Rating (DEFRTG) over the last ten games, to illustrate which Lakers players have been playing well recently.
Finally, I use a non-advanced stat called My Own Eye Test (MOET) because stats aren’t the only viable way to show a player’s worth. For My Own Eye Test, I’ll rank each player on a scale from 1-10. A score of one means you’ve played so bad recently that when I watch you I want to break my TV. 10 means you’ve played so well of late, that when I watch you, I want to scream for joy.
I’m only going to rank Lakers players who’ve played over 100 minutes total for the season, or who have actually played over the last ten games. That leaves off Isaac Bonga, Moritz Wagner, Ivica Zubac, Michael Beasley, Rajon Rondo, and Johnathon Williams.
With that said, here we go!
