STAT CHECK – Best offensive season’s ever via Locke Offensive Rating

We had a fun discussion today via twitter @lockedonsports using my Locke Offensive Rating and trying to find the best offensive season ever. The Locke Offensive Rating (LOR) looks at the efficiency by which a player uses a possessions and then rewards or punishes a player on their ability to use numerous efficient or inefficient possessions.

Here are the best seasons we discovered. If you have any suggestions let me know. This is a work in progress

STAT CHECK – Jazz offensive ratings thru 70 games

Throughout the year I have been posting these updates every 10 games. We missed at game 60 but here are the Jazz offensive numbers through 70 games. The Locke offensive rating is the sort and that gives players credit for efficiency use and the ability to use a possessions. It does not hurt a player for turnovers so it is very favorable to Kanter and not as favorable to Jefferson who doesn’t turn the ball over. The items shaded in red are below league average.
