Yes, the players you'd expect to be at the top of these "ratings" are there, but what about Nazr Mohammed at #12? Or Carl Landry at #15? Or Rasho Nesterovich having second-best PER among our player behind Bosh
Stats... There are lies, damned lies, and statistics.
landry is having an awesome year. he's a clear frontrunner for 6th man right now, and he's putting up very efficient stats in less than 25 minutes off the bench. he's a huge reason that the rockets have been so successful.
