Jrue Holiday is arguably the Number 1 point guard in the Eastern Conference this season.
Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports
As the entire Philadelphia 76ers fan base celebrates Jrue
Holiday’s first career All-Star selection Holiday himself has the
right to still feel a little disrespected. That’s right folks, Jrue Holiday is
statistically, and also eye-test, worthy of being the Eastern Conference starting
point guard in this February’s All-Star Game in Houston.
Take a look at stat lines of two players, let’s call
them Player A and Player B:
Player A: 13.7 ppg, 11.1 apg, 5.5 rpg and 18.57 PER in 37.2
Player B: 19.0 ppg, 9.0 apg, 4.2 rpg and 18.90 PER in 38.1
Looking at these categories, both players are pretty
productive, as both of their PER’s are very close to 20. While Player A has the slight
advantage in assists and rebounds over Player B, Player B is significantly more
productive scoring the ball. Now, let’s look at these two players’ live-ball scoring
