Another key omission from his formula IMO would be average # of wins per season, or, if you want to have a more fixed formula, # of seasons with 50, 55, and 60+ wins on their team.
Nevertheless, his formula seems to do a pretty solid job separating the wheat from the chaff - the ones I'd say who are unworthy on the top 15 would be TMac (career cut short by some injuries, and also the fact that he's never been out of the first round), Vince (surefire Hall of Famer by season 3,4, historic pussy after that) and Grant Hill (who was another surefire HOF'er before he destroyed his ankle).
...Amare's also way too high.
