NBA WAR

Here is Corner Three’s NBA WAR ranking for 2018-2019 (to date). The first of its kind, it takes into account key offensive and defensive indicators that correlate strongly to points scored and points prevented, based on years of data. Each player is then compared to the replacement-level player at his position.
