RealGM blasts Pistons roster
“At least on paper, the Pistons have the least talented team in the league, which is a problem compounded by where they are in terms of payroll,” Reina wrote.
When Reina says paper he is referring to John Hollinger’s player efficiency rating (PER) — which is a rating of a player’s per-minute productivity — and the Floor Impact Counter (FIC), which is a formula used by RealGM.com uses to help determine how a player is performing in relation to their contract also known as the Reina Value.
The formulas are complex and somewhat confusing, but there are people who swear by them.
Rodney Stuckey has been the Pistons highest rated PER performer at 105th in the entire NBA as of Wednesday when Reina wrote his story.
The Pistons Reina Value’s are not much better and are as follows:
Player, Season FIC Rank, Reina Value
Ben Wallace, 50th, +1,208%
Rodney Stuckey, 72nd, +403%
Jonas Jerekbo, 131st, +1047%
Charlie Villanueva, 147th, -27%
Richard Hamilton, 194th, -71%
Jason Maxiell, 196th, -36%
Tayshaun Prince, 198th, -70%
Will Bynum, 209th, +253%
Chris Wilcox, 295th, -56%
Kwame Brown, 299th, -68%
