consistency



Consistency is something that has plagued the Kings all season. Now with some players it is a matter of playing time to be consistent, but if the coach doesn't think the player is going to preform then consistent minutes will not be given. 

To get my information for the players below I took out games they did not play and took the standard deviation of their points per game. The lower the deviation is the better because on any given night the coach knows about how many points the player will score. With a higher deviation the player will go through more up and down points through out the season.

Here are the main Kings this season (name/scoring average/deviation):

Evans 20.3 6.97
Beno 12.3 6.04
Omri 11.6 5.94
Hawes 10.4 6.13
Greene 8.6 7.2

 

Here are other players for refence

Lebron 30 8.25
Billups 19.7 8.3
JR Smith 15 7.1
(Mr. Consistency) Duncan 18 6.2
Curry 16 8

 

What does this all mean. Lebron has a high deviation, but he averages so many points and it is amazing it is that his deviation is so low. Amazingly Beno and Omri can't really be seperated on paper, even with Omri's rookie struggles (only to this point) he is still doing well.

Evans can put another tally by his name for ROY because he averages more points and scores at a more consistent rate than Curry.

Greene looks the worst on these numbers, yes playing time factors, but any given night there is no telling how he will perform. Hence the chicken and egg debate will rage he would be consistent with more playing time vs proving consistency then receiving extra PT.

Obviously this is only select data, and there needs to be a lot more data to draw more conclusive results. Just thought I would share what I found in these limited results.
