And the HabersTrophy goes to ...
Handing out 25 wide-ranging stats-based awards for the 2013-14 NBA season
Ladies and gentlemen, it's that time of the year again.
As the regular season wraps up Wednesday night, it's time to hand out another batch of 2013-14 statistical superlatives. Yes, I'm talking about Per Diem's second annual HabersTrophy awards.
Last season, in the inaugural edition of the HabersTrophies, I dug deep into the NBA StatsCube, SportVU and Synergy databases to uncover 13 of my favorite statistical nuggets of the season. This time, I'm feeling a little more generous, so we'll add 12 more to the pile.
Here are the HabersTrophies for 2013-14.
Most Inconsistent ScorerAnd the HabersTrophy goes to ... Stephen Curry
Inconsistency is the only consistency when you launch an NBA-high 7.9 3-point attempts per game. Curry has three single-digit scoring games and three 40-plus scoring infernos on his ledger. Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony have zero single-digit scoring games combined. For two weeks in March, Curry couldn't crack 20 points. And now he's scored 31, 24, 30, 47 and 32 in his past five games. Put it all together and he owns the NBA's highest standard deviation of scoring totals (9.2). Wild.
