Seems more like a popularity contest. I'm still waiting for people to realize that Monta Ellis scored .9 less points per game than Rose, shooting .6% higher from the field and .3% higher from 3 point range. While also averaging 2.1 steals vs Rose's 1.0. The only large statistical margin that Rose has is in FT% where he was at 85% and Monta at 78%. I mean....Rose averaged 7.7 assists as the PG, and Monta averaged 5.6 as a time share between PG and 2. Several times he hit double digit assists with Steph on the court. I don't think 2.1 assists diff between PG and non-PG is enough to quantify why they're so far apart on that list.
But Rose is #9 and Monta is #44? And don't even talk about wins, because Deron is #7 and Blake is #14.
If the game of basketball is a statistical game to this dude, how are those guys 35 spots apart?
Plus: Monta's 5.6 assists was the third highest among non-PGs behind LBJ and Iggy. But even Iggy is sitting at 30 and Monta is 40 ****ing 4th?
