So, I've been reading the various comments about "best five on the floor" and who those five might be, and decided to put together a quick-and-dirty analysis.
I used the player stats at ESPN to get minutes played and other total stats. I then divided certain stats by minutes played to get the per-minute stat. Finally, I weighted the various stats based on how important I thought they were, added them together, and got a weighted rating for each player. I sorted the players by the weighted rating.
Here's the chart, with the raw data hidden for size:
Obviously, this is one person's opinion on how to weight the various factors. But for those proposing that we should play non-obvious combinations at the same time, this may provide support for that. Or at least good fodder for discussion. Enjoy!
