+/- is the most bogus stat in bball, even in hockey it can be arguable
think about it this way, lets say you're 1 of those deep bench players that only come in during garbage minutes, so your team is down like 20 points with 5-10 minutes left and nobody even cares about the game anymore because its been decided, so you play out the rest of the game and and your team loses by 10 points, so what? you gained 10 points on the opposing team, so you're a +10 for the game and so you're a better player than the starter you replaced because he has a -20 when the game was in the balance???!!!
