Reddit is a wonderful thing. Reddit’s r/NBA subreddit just makes it even wonderfuller.

User Browsing_From_Work recently posted a spreadsheet including all NBA player stats from 2004-2011, scraped from NBA.com. Go have fun with it. (The best way to play with the data is to go to “File” –> “Download as” –> “Excel,” then sort and fiddle to your heart’s content.)

Using that data, here are the 10 most efficient individual player seasons from 2004-2011:

  1. LeBron James, 2009-10 (CLE): 32.42
  2. Kevin Garnett, 2004-05 (MIN): 31.96
  3. LeBron James, 2008-09 (CLE): 30.88
  4. Chris Paul, 2008-09 (NOH): 30.46
  5. LeBron James, 2007-08 (CLE): 30.33

  8. Kevin Garnett, 2006-07 (MIN): 29.17
  9. Shawn Marion, 2005-06 (PHX): 28.85

Here are the 10 most efficient players in 2010-11:

  1. LeBron James (MIA): 28.58
  2. Kevin Love (MIN): 28.37

The 2011 NBA Finals are over, the ring has been kept from Gollum’s grasp and we’re all waking up to our miserable lives again. Now what? It’s time to shake off the cobwebs, take a deep breath and start mentally preparing for the 2011-12 fantasy basketball season — whenever that will start.

Too soon, you say? Well, if there’s anything we should’ve learned from this year’s Finals, it’s that it’s never too soon to start anything.

[Read the full post at DimeMag.com]

Beast of the Night: Chris Paul continued his hot post-concussion streak with 26 points, five rebounds, nine assists, three steals and two three-pointers. He shot 56 percent (9-16) from the field, 86 percent (6-7) from the free-throw line and had one turnover. Owners who endured Paul’s mediocre play in February and earlier this month are definitely being rewarded.

Lines for Discussion:
Greg Monroe: 9-14 FG (64%), 3-5 FT (60%), 21 Pts, 10 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk

Andrei Kirilenko: 7-14 FG (50%), 1-2 FT (50%), 15 Pts, 6 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Blk, 1 TO (continue reading…)
