      two of the main reasons bigmen rate high on linear weight systems is
      the rebounding (creating extra possessions) and the higher FG%. i
      think those factors are valid and major. i might adjust my formula
      further to pull the best permiter players up a bit more but bigmen
      having a majority of the top ratings seems to be widespread across
      rating systems and is reinforced by gm bidding for free-agent bigmen
      and the bigman bias in the draft. another part of the value of
      bigmen is easier shots for the perimeter players after dropping the
      ball in low and sometimes causing double teams. perhaps bigmen that
      get doubled should get some extra credit for that. often the ball
      swings before the shot and the bigman doesnt get all the assists he
      desrves.

      but on the other side, i have thought of giving a selective 5-10%
      bonus to quality point guards only for their especially significantly
      role in running the offense and generating overall better team
      offense.

      rating systems can get you close but you still have to eyeball it and
      factor in intangibles in judging players and picking the right mix.
