NBA STATS FOR 08-09 SEASON THRU WK 1

In NBA, SPORTS on November 4, 2008 at UTC.53.30.

The NBA season is underway after just the first week we can already see trends with some of the elite players. The cream always rises to the top. Though some distinctions aren’t necessarily popular among  players, like  turnovers per game. Most stats are just that numbers that don’t always reflect a players ability, contribution or importance on either side of the ball. Indeed, some qualities can’t be measured empirically, such as hustle & leadership.

So, it is with all this in mind that we take a look at some notable NBA ballers and their individual stat lines through first week of competition. Arguably the sexiest of all stats is the scoring, rebounding, steals, & block leaders.
