I think the +/- should be calculated on a per minute basis. If you think about it, this should be the ultimate tool to measure a player's performance within a team. I think it's basically useless as a inter-team stats tool, but within the team, this kind of encompasses all the aspects of a game. The players with the best +/- per minute should be considered the MVP of the team, because basically while he's on the field, the team is performing at its peak. And that's regardless of the rest of the stats, it could be that the best player on a team is a very good defensive player like bowen, who doesn't do much else. Or it could be a very profilic scorer like arenas, who has a shitty FG% and plays lousy defense.
