    I'm glad you're giving Tyson Chandler some mainstream recognition. Arguably the best "third-best-player-on-your-team" of all time (along with Rodman)

    Still, doesn't his large amount of offensive win shares have something to do with the formula overrating extremely efficient shooters?

  2. @RobertAugustdeMeijer: I don't know that the method does do that.

  3. While Chandler is certainly a very valuable player, it is interesting to see the Mavs ranking top 5 in defense. After they lost Chandler and gotten Odom it was widely expected that they suffer a huge breakdown on defense while playing good offense. Right now it is the other way round.
