What you use is a huge sample of games and advanced measurements of effectiveness. Splitter was a top-50 player last year in PER, true shooting percentage, effective FG%, offensive rating, and defensive rating, and top-30 in offensive, defensive, and net win shares, and #10 in the league in win shares per 48 minutes. We got a good deal.
Nicely done.
