The Ultimate Stat Equivalator
How many points is a steal worth? How many rebounds equals a blocked shot? In normal basketball analysis, these questions are absurd. People would mock you for asking them, and rightly so. “You fool,” they would sneer. “You can’t equate different kinds of stats.” Then, for emphasis, they would make an inflammatory hand gesture, or maybe spit on your shoes. For some reason, the people I am thinking of are Marco Belinelli’s extended family.
