People are realizing that scoring is only a small part of hoops

The Curious Case of Chuck Hayes -

Are more encompassing stats such at +/- or efficiency per 48 minutes having an impact?

How about Denver's improvement and the Knicks mediocrity since the Melo trade?

The big three Heat have been good, but not a dominant team.

The Spurs are the best team in the league, winning with a balanced 3 point shooting attack.

How I'd love to find a good way to quantify individual defensive contributions.

Good defense requires all five acting as a unit. Decent offence often involves 2 players in a pick and roll with shoots around the outside. Great defense is under-appreciated. I wish announcers would start highlighting rotations the cause the shot clot to expire rather than break away dunk that work just as well as a layup.
