espn rank and most used lineups


Quick Chart. I just went through and pulled the most played lineup for each team and the total minutes played for that lineup so far. This doesn't account for each teams different numbers of game played so is a little off. It doesn't really matter as i was trying to get an idea of each teams "core" unit. I then looked up the pre-season espn player rank for each player and then did averages and totals for the team. This isn't a great metric in that it again throws off the numbers a little in that there will be surprise players and players that flop each year but I used it to give me an idea of an outside sources perspective of our "core."

According to this measure we had the consensus 7th worst core group of 5 players in the nba. I think this info isn't totally useful because strength of schedule and pre-season ranks and blah blah blah. What I did find interesting is the records of all the teams around us with the "core" ranking that is comparable. Either we misjudge talent or we don't know how to play talent. I'm leaning towards the latter.
