Layups: The Paul Millsap Doctrine

Posted by Neil Paine on January 18, 2009

Courtesy of Basketball Prospectus, here's a fantastic piece from Kevin Pelton about Paul Millsap and the statistical transition from backup to starter. It's been a controversial topic in APBRmetrics for years -- do great per-minute (or per-possession) stats hold up with an increase in playing time? Well, in Millsap's case, that's a big 10-4: not only has he been better as a starter, but he's been playing like an All-Star!
