I am not sure if shooting 45/31/78 is a player of the year. Frazier had higher counting stats, but his rate stats are worse than Wood's. I was a little surprised to see Wood get POY, but he is no way robbed Frazier.
if you want to argue about "rates"...then we must also take into account Frazier's 91 defense compared to Wood's 50 and the significant ath difference that magnifies the defensive discrepency even more, along with the fact that Frazier played the 26th toughest schedule in the country as opposed to Wood's 56th toughest.
there's a lot more that should go into it than whether or not he shoots 45% for the season and your guy shoots 50%.
they're both great players but at the end of the day one led his team to a 2 loss regular season and a top 5 RPI and one lead his team to a 6 loss regular season and a top 35 RPI
