interesting study! I wonder what would be the result if players concentrated on these particular statistics; for example, centers getting steals - would the dynamic of the game change and that stat become less important as a result, or conversely would the dynamic of the game change in that every team begins drafting crafty quick handed centers?

Could it be that their findings denote that if you are Michael Jordan in 1997 (small forward) and you can distribute the ball and score at will you will win? Mmm very interesting.

Finally! The 2% Rule applied to a sport other than volleyball. Hey BYU guys! Do a study for football! Moneyball was great for baseball but football is in great need! Thanks for some very useful information!
