I get the Russell argument. It annoys the hell out of me that the best defensive player of all time can't get his due respect here. However, if you look at the 52-53 season, you will see that the season was 72 games long. It's the same prorating of statistics that happened for the 98-99 and 11-12 lockout shortened seasons. His efg% is lower because WIS fabricates 3pt shooting numbers probably based off some BS.
My big gripe about WIS $h!t is the disparity between the advanced numbers on BBallRef and the ones WIS uses, especially wrt reb% and ast%. 94-95 Stockton has a 52.6 ast% on BBallRef, yet only 42.9% with WIS numbers. Rodman's crazy half season (94-95 also) has 20.8 oreb% and 37.8 dreb% on BBallRef while only having 20.1 and 36.5 respectively in the WIS database. To prove that this isn't just outdated stats getting mucked, 12-13 LBJ has 36.4 ast% on BBallRef, while sporting a relatively measly 24.2% in the WIS numbers. Does anybody have a reason, or even a guess at a reason of why this is?
