      For the curious, here's what I came up with for the biggest dropoffs
      in productivity, from last year.

      Notice how I avoided saying these guys were "worse" than last year.
      Steve Nash is high on this list despite improved eff%, better assist
      rate, rebounds, steals... He just didn't shoot as much; as such, he
      contributed less.

      The Lakers' Big 4 also dominate this list (as well as most of the
      Mavs). In both cases, I think the team is less than the sum of its
      parts; and so on one level, perhaps the listing is deserved.

      Anyway, make what you want of it:

      Of 314 players, the "average" improvement score was +34. This is
      because players get more minutes when they "do better".

      Some guys whose game fell off the table didn't make this list
      because their minutes became so scanty.
