Assist-to-Turnover Ratio

New, 3 comments

It's not points per game, assists per game, rebounds per game, etc.

Those ones don't matter to me as much as one other stat does.

Assist-to-Turnover Ratio

It is the one stat that describes how much risk you succeed with compared to the risk in which you fail with. You may not think of Jose Calderon a any good, but he is leading the league with a 4.34 A/TO. That means he has 282 assists while only turning the ball over 65 times. Chris Paul is 2nd with 4.02 A/TO and Rajon Rondo is 5th with a 3.32 A/TO.

The PG who has thought for MVP, Derrick Rose, is 40th (WOW) in the league with a 2.24 A/TO. That almost means for every 2 assists he dishes, he also issues one turnover. The good news for him is that no other legit Top 5 MVP is in the top 50.

But, one of the worst I have ever seen was Eddy Curry in the 2006-07 season when he had a -2.8 A/TO. That is pretty bad considering for every 1 assist he has, he has 3 turnovers to put with it. This former 4th overall pick even got to play 81 games.

Eddy Curry made New York fans want to run away and not go to games. Even Spike was probably scared
