I'm not exactly sure how I missed this the first time that I read TrueHoop's interview with John (33-49) Hollinger, but an e-mail from a BF reader pointed out something I didn't notice the first time I read this. Apparently Hollinger is surprised by Antonio Daniels' efficiency:
For the most part it's the latter, but there are exceptions. Like Antonio Daniels. For some reason every summer when I sit down to write I'm like, "Wow, his PER was that good?"
Then again, I can't really blame Hollinger for underrating Daniels, it's not like AD led the league in assist-to-turnover ratio or anything. Of course PER isn't solely based on how well you distribute the ball, but have you seen a player with a good A/T ratio not have a good PER? Gary Payton last year doesn't count.
