Revolutionary New Basketball Analysis

The Basketball Performance Efficiency Rating (PER) system evaluates players in the nine
statistical categories of points scored, rebounds collected, assists distributed, steals,
blocks, turnovers, two-point shooting percentage, three-point shooting percentage,
and free throw percentage.

Each of the first six categories are adjusted from ‘per game’ to ‘per complete game’ by
making due adjustments for the actual minutes played each game. The three shooting percentages are combined into one overall
shooting percentage.

The nine categories are then appropriately weighted to reflect their overall contribution
to basketball success.

The PER therefore measures their performance relative to a complete game

The PER scores should be interpreted as follows:
A score of 100 or greater is considered an extraordinary performance (in the top 1% of the entire league)
A score between 90 and 100 is considered a superior performance (top 5%)
A score between 80 and 90 is considered above-average performance
A score below 70 is below-average performance
A score below 60 is considered a significant

The PER methodology has also developed the Most Valuable Player Efficiency Rating (MVPER) award which measures the top MVP performer within the league each year. This measure considers the outstanding player for any given season who had the greatest impact within the league. It combines both strong individual performance – measured by the Individual PER – with his contributions to
team wins when that player competed. This MVPER measure therefore combines both individual skills and winning intangible into overall player performance score
