Go check on the top link to calculate PAWS40 for yourself but the basic gist of this stat is to combine 9 of the most important box scores like PTS or REBS and normalize it so that you can compare guards to forwards with respect to NBA averages.

1. This table is not the end all be all of talent. I intend to refine it further to account for some of the factors I think are more important. Like Free throw rate, injury history, behavior, weaker conference, and whether or not they are freshman. Will need to watch some video.
2. I will also be doing an analysis of the the players the lottery teams actually pick.
Machado is fluky. Jesse Sanders, and Lillard are pretty good. Kazemi might be a little low usage and laid back--efficient but his fully expanded stats show he might just be a REALLY good role player.
