John Wall is the most productive distributor in the Eastern Conference


A quick update to my earlier post about Mike Prada's "missed assist tracker" research and the NBA's new player stat tracker. We all know that John Wall is pretty awesome, but it turns out he is even awesomer than we realize. He gets 8.7 assists per game, which is good for fourth in the league, which is nice. I had noted in my earlier post that his teammates are converting a fairly low percentage of the assist opportunities he creates for them, further evidence that Wall's teammates suck. However, that's not entirely accurate -- a stunning 53% of John's assists are three pointers, so you would expect the conversion rate on John's assists to be somewhat lower.

Turns out, assists per game is a slightly flawed concept -- what you're really after is the "points generated by assists" number in the tracker, which accounts for three pointers. So far this season, Wall's "points generated by assists" stands at 22.3 -- second in the league after Chris Paul, and BEST IN THE EAST! Take that, Kyrie Irving!
