Efficiency Per Minute: Shooting Guards

For an overview of this statistic (and the point guard numbers), click here. I ran the numbers for shooting guards, and here are the top 10 in EPM:

Dwyane Wade 0.672
Kobe Bryant 0.610
Brandon Roy 0.545
Manu Ginobili 0.545
Joe Johnson 0.522
Andre Iguodala 0.512
Mike Miller 0.488
Jason Richardson 0.465
Jamal Crawford 0.462
Vince Carter 0.452

Next 5: Martin, Harden, Morrow, Terry, D. Wright

The top 5 are the same as Hollinger’s PER rankings…Mike Miller? Hell yeah. He’s averaging 10-6-3 and is shooting 56% from the field and 56% from long range. That’s some serious efficiency…Before you ask, Monta Ellis (0.486) is listed with the point guards. He’d be #8 on the SG list, though remember, these numbers are not pace-adjusted…O.J. Mayo is #17, which doesn’t account for what he brings to the table defensively. He’s also hurt by the fact that he plays a ton of minutes (38.5), while a guy like Vince Carter puts up similar numbers in 31 minutes a game…Top rookie? James Harden, averaging 10-3-2 in 23 minutes per game…Who are the bottom five SGs getting 25+ minutes? 1. Charlie Bell, 2. Anthony Parker, 3. Rasual Butler, 4. Brandon Rush, and 5. Thabo Sefolosha.
