Doesn't total points address effeciency, there's a relatively fixed amount of time, therefore the team with the most total points is the most effecient by default.
More evidence that you really don't know what you're talking about AT ALL.

Total points is MEANINGLESS.  The sim does not use that stat at all.  The sim (attempted) did (to do) something called "normalization of eras" by using advanced stats based on a player's effect while he was on the floor.  It uses percentages based on minutes.  A guy that scored 2000 points in 1965 might only have scored 1000 now due to the pace of the game being sooooooo much slower.

Mikee, I think you got it right this time, good draft'n.
Respectfully, I think I butchered this thing.

I said scoring points wins games.

Scoring points is half the story smokey, you have to score MORE points than the other guy of course. My team led the PPL in scoring at 122.3ppg, but I was 20th in points allowed per game at 118.6, the end result was 47-35 and a 2nd round playoff exit. My point diff was only +3.7ppg, nc's was +8.0ppg and he won 57 games and the title. Point diff is the key, not points scored.

Nate I understand that it's the differentials that matter. I try to build 110ppg teams that hold opponents to 104ppg. I believe def has the biggest impact on your differential stat line. By incorporating def into the dashboard ranking I'm hopeing to address differentials.

This is a 1st pass on the Dash, most likely I'll weight the different catagories next time around, and refine the board. Now each catagory is ranked 1.0, maybe next time it will go: def & pts=1.0, ast=0.9, rbs=0.8 and TO's & PF's=0.7. But I'll have a better idea after this season WRT catagory weighting. I can always revise this seasons data after the fact.

Brick wall, meet Smokey.
Smokey, meet Brick wall.

I believe the two of you will become VERY good friends.
