Interesting Graphs

The brother Henry Abbott at Truehoop linked to this in one of his recent blog postings, it's a set of graphs a guy over at Ballhype compiled.  Real cool stuff to check out, gives another perspective on some teams and really shows how they play.

Err, theres a minimum amount of characters needed for a diary entry...Well according to one of these charts, the Wizards play with the 5th best pace and 3rd most efficient offense which is interesting.  I always thought the "SUNSOFTHEEAST" statements were way off because what the wizards often do is slow it down and then go one on one and either score or dish out for a spot up shot.  Which led me to believe(thoughts i believed were validated by something john hollinger wrote at some point) that an actual statistical analysis would leave them with a slightly better than average pace factor but nowhere near the suns and well short of the actual fastest teams in the league, the nuggets and warriors.   I'm guessing the numbers show what they show because even though the Wizards get into a half court set instead of going full court, they attack the basket fairly quickly and get their shots up without concern for the shotclock and thus they still manage to have a high pace factor despite not at all being a full court fastbreaking team.

I think thats enough, just look at the charts yourself.

ps. gilbert posted another blog the other day, i didn't see a link to it from here.
