For simplicity’s sake, we will only be looking at the starting point guard for all 30 teams in the league.
Important bottom-right quadrant, which is to say a lot of assists with very few turnovers:
Bottom Right Quadrant: Breaking news alert: Chris Paul is really, really good. CP3 was the only top ten scoring point guard to register an above average Assist Ratio and below average Turnover Ratio. In other words, he is the complete package. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that has seen Paul play this year, or ever for that matter, but sometimes it’s just nice to see when the numbers back up the “eye test” as well. Jose Calderon meanwhile is quietly having a solid year despite being on a poor Raptors team. Calderon is averaging 8.3 APG and shooting just under 91% from the free throw line while running an offense that does not have many offensive weapons. The fact that he currently holds the highest Assist Ratio among any PG in the league is impressive to say the least.
