02-03 PER difference numbers...
- we've calculated the PER counterpart ratings (and thereby the PER
difference) for the 2002-03 season.
eventually we may update a number of things for that year, but if
you have some specific players in mind let me know and I'll post
their numbers here
on the subject of how accurate the counterpart stats are, we just
published a piece that looks at actual game charted individual
defensive performance versus the "auto-matchup style" counterpart
equivalents (in this case for the Wolves-Lakers series) which you
can see at http://www.82games.com/comm45.htm
