A quick look at Guards and Wings taken in the top 5 over the past 5 years

Thought it would be interesting to take a look at the guards and wings drafted in the top 5 over the past 5 years. The stats are from this season, so we have rookies through 5th year guys. I sorted the players by points scored. The first table has no player names. The same table with the player names is added below the jump.

Player Position Age Minutes Points Rebounds Assists FG% 3PT%
A F 23 38.6 28.0 8.0 3.5 0.496 0.387
B G 23 35.3 23.6 4.6 5.5 0.457 0.316
C G 23 35.3 21.8 3.4 7.9 0.435 0.312
D G 19 30.5 18.5 3.7 5.4 0.469 0.399
E G 22 31.4 16.8 4.1 3.7 0.491 0.390
F G 22 34.3 16.5 4.6 4.5 0.453 0.202
G G 21 36.2 16.3 4.5 8.0 0.423 0.071
H G 24 35.1 12.7 2.5 6.5 0.433 0.377
I G 24 26.8 12.6 3.2 2.6 0.408 0.364
J G 21 34.2 10.6 4.2 8.2 0.357 0.340
K G 23 26.4 9.4 5.8 2.8 0.446 0.224
L F 24 22.6 6.0 2.7 0.9 0.398 0.314

Obviously some of the players are pretty easy to guess. Looking at these players, I was amazed by how poorly many of them shoot. Rose, Wall, Turner and Johnson in particular.

Tyreke Evans G 22 34.3 16.5 4.6 4.5 0.453 0.202
John Wall G 21 36.2 16.3 4.5 8.0 0.423 0.071

Evan Turner G 23 26.4 9.4 5.8 2.8 0.446 0.224
Wesley Johnson F 24 22.6 6.0 2.7 0.9 0.398 0.314

Don't really have any conclusion to draw from this, we've debated Tyreke pretty much to death at this point, just thought it would be interesting to look at.
