NBA 2012-13 Statistical Report

The 2012-13 NBA season brought several surprises in relation to the accumulated statistics. As everybody knows, the best league in the world only considers the regular season when establishing their historical classifications.

POINTS

In points scored, Kobe Bryant is unstoppable. The Lakers guard just dethrone Wilt Chamberlain fourth with 31.617 points and stood at just 675 of Michael Jordan. This season he scored 2,133 in 78 games (at a rate of 27.3 per night) and is the 14th time that averages more than 20 in a season (tied with Shaq in 4th place; Abdul-Jabbar and Malone 17, Jordan 15 played) and most impressive: his 8th season with 2,000 or more points. (Malone 12, Jordan 11, Kareem 9 and with 8 plus Kobe, Alex English, Dominique Wilkins and we add LeBron to that mix).

Kobe remains the active leading scorer. His injury (torn Achilles tendon) will not be an impediment to continue for at least another year, as the nine-month layoff presumed caught him in the playoffs and is likely to return to the slopes just before the All-Star of the next season.

Newly admitted to the 25,000-point club are Kevin Garnett and Dirk Nowitzki. KG (15th with 25,274, 5 to pass Reggie Miller) since he left Minnesota never returned to average 20+10, but he maintained over time with a more than worthy 14.8 points and 6.7 rebounds (15.8 and 8.3 since arriving in Boston). The German (17th with 25,051) has had an injury earlier in the season that costed him almost thirty games. However, although Dallas missed Playoffs after 12 years, he managed to produce more than a worthy campaign (917 points in 53 games, 17.3 average, plus 6.8 rebounds and 1.2 triples).

Paul Pierce (20th with 24,021, second highest scorer in the history of the Celtics behind Havlicek) is very fit, and it shows with his 18.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.8 assists on average in 77 games. With 10.9 points in 25 minutes (the lowest average of his career), Ray Allen (21st, 23,804) had a more limited role this season, almost as a specialist behind the three-point line, where is still "on fire" (1.9 per game). What is striking is that Ray did not enter as a starter in any of the 79 games he entered. Tim Duncan (22nd, 23.785) at 37, had just turned a second youth. To his improvement in points and rebounds (last season stood at 15.4 and 9.0 and 17.8 and 9.9 in this, missing the 10-rebound average by only four boards) we must add he literally doubled his block shots production. Last year the Virgin Islander closed his first season with less than 100 caps (88 in 58 games, 1.5 on average) and this season escalated stratospherically to 183 (in 69 games, 2.7 on average). A lot.

Vince Carter (27th, 22,223) again had a discreet season with Dallas, but with a distinct feature. Despite he improved his points average from 10.1 in the 2011-12 bringing it to 13.4 this year, he has never been so deadly through the arc. With 162 triples Carter tied his best season (2000-01 with Toronto) and he averaged 2 per night again, since the 2001-02 season (121 in 60 games).

A separate case is LeBron James (32nd, 21.081). At just 28 years old and in just his tenth season is called to break all records available. Only player in history to have more than 20,000 points, 5,000 rebounds, 5,000 assists, 1,000 steals and 1,000 triples. In a campaign, never went down of 600 field goals made, 400 rebounds, 100 steals, 50 triples and 50 blocks and only once fell from the 400 assists ... last season due to the lockout. Along with Magic Johnson, Jason Kidd and Oscar Robertson he is one of the only four players to credit 6 seasons with 7 points and 7 assists average and in the 2009-10 season he broke the record for Larry Bird as most assists as a forward (651, 8.6 avg).

Who was left at the gates of the 20,000 club is Antawn Jamison (39, 19,958). In the descending curve of his career (turns 37 on June 12), Jamison did not score less than 10 points since 1998 to 1999, his rookie season. With the sixth or seventh spot in the rotation in the Lakers Jameson had minimums of 9.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.1 triples.

Let us leave aside for a moment Tracy McGrady (who ended his season in China, in the NBA is 57 with 18.381). Who's the sweetest moment of his career is Carmelo Anthony. With 28.7 pts average (1,920 pts in 67 games) the Knicks forward is the leading scorer in the regular season by average, and thanks to 17,846 points (65th in the list of all time) in 713 games and he is part of a select group of 13 players with 25 or more points on average. Carmelo averaging just 25.0 per night.

Other members of the list: Jason Kidd (71°, 17,529), Jason Terry (76º, 17.286), behind one was still Steve Nash (77, 17,285), Grant Hill (his first season with less than 10 points on average can be his last, as there are high chances of retirement; Hill is 81st with 17.137), Shawn Marion (85th, 16,633), Dwyane Wade (87th, 16,453), Jerry Stackhouse (another removable, 88th with 16,409), Elton Brand (94th, 16,242, in Dallas had a discreet season as a reserve center, with 7.2 pts and 6.0 reb), Juwan Howard (95th with 16,159, with 40 years it will be difficult to continue), Rasheed Wallace (96th with 16,006, now retired), Joe Johnson (100, 15,927), Chauncey Billups (103, 15.730) and immediately behind is Richard Hamilton (104, 15,708). Pau Gasol is just 112th in the points list, tied with a Celtic legend, Dennis Johnson (15,535). The Catalan power forward continues to fight despite having had by far his worst season in regard to points (673, 13.7) and games (49) and the second worst in total rebounds (421, but with an acceptable 8.7 average) and block shots (61, 1.2).

REBOUNDS

In rebounds, Kevin Garnett became Top 10 (10th, 13,843) and Tim Duncan remains slightly behind in the 13th place (13.219). Both power forwards secure to over ten rebounds per game in total career. Taking Ben Wallace, and virtually retired free agent (30th, 10,482) next on the list of assets is another specialist caps and also a member of the subspecies "more rebounds than points": Marcus Camby (38th, 9,513). The power forward for the Knicks saw very little action this season (presumably his last, on a basis he's already 39 years old) with only 1.8 points and 3.3 rebounds on average in 24 games, with just over 10 minutes a night .

Shawn Marion (41 with reject 9.402) with 12.1 points and 5.7 rebounds played a good role as a substitute for Nowitzki. The German is next on the list of assets in rebounding (45th, 9,096). Another just entered the club of 9,000 is Dwight Howard (47th, 9,017). Superman is on track to be one of only four players to average more than 10 rebounds in each and every one of his seasons between those with more than nine plays (the other: Chamberlain, Russell and Bob Pettit).

Jason Kidd, as well as being the second highest passer and the second highest thief of all time, is also the greatest rebounder as a guard. Kidd, who just completed his 19th season in the league playing for the Knicks, ranks 50th with 8,725. Elton Brand is 55th to 8,516, and the newly admitted to the club of the 8,000 are Antawn Jamison (60th with 8.102) and Lamar Odom (61st with 8,059. Little minutes contribution to the Clippers, and for the first time he totalled more rebounds than points: 4 points and 4.4 rebounds. Testimonial). Pau is 67th with 7,756, Juwan Howard closed his career 76th with 7,428, Rasheed Wallace retires 77th with 7.404, and the 7000 rebound club is completed by Kurt Thomas (80 with 7,328, with just 2.5 ppg and 2.3 rpg this season Knicks) and freshmen Tyson Chandler (87th with 7,168), Zach Randolph (89th, 7,142), Carlos Boozer (94th with 7,078), Jermaine O'Neal (in Phoenix he found a hole that he hadn't in Boston, with 8.3 pts average and 5.3 reb, is 97th with 7,019) and Erick Dampier (98th with 7,005).

ASSISTS

Jason Kidd had this season his lowest assist per game average by far. his 3.3 passes (249 in 76 games) do not match at all with his brilliant career. Kidd, who assists more than 12,000 (12,091 at the end of this regular) will surely close his career as the second best passer of all time, totaling 16 of his 19 seasons with over 8 assists average (15 Stockton, and Magic Johnson Oscar Robertson 11) and 11 with more than 9 (Stockton and Magic 10). Amazing.

Steve Nash, despite a discreet and difficult season (12.1 pts and 6.7 ast in just 50 games) managed to pass the 10,000 surpassing Magic (10,141) for fourth all-time. Curiously, Nash is the only point-guard in NBA history that records in his career more than 10 assists per steal, since they began to compute from 1973-74, the Canadian international totals 10,249 passes by just 892 steals (8.5 and 0.7 respectively) and in 2009-10 with Phoenix he get it so far the one and only season ever with 20 assists per steal (892/42, 11.4 and 0.55.)
The hovering in 10th place is Andre Miller (7,956). While no longer the electrical point-guard of other years, he managed to have a correct campaign with Denver (9.6 pts and 5.9 ast in 26.2 min). Miller, 37, only missed six games in his entire career and never went off the 400 assists per season. If he plays next season, he will pass Rod Strickland (it's just 29 passes short).

Aside from Baron Davis, who missed the entire 2012-13 due to injury (29 with 6,025), as well as Mike Bibby (40, 5,517), Kobe Bryant is the next asset. Black Mamba (32, 5,887) amazes not only as a great passer, but as one of the biggest passers in NBA history who's not strictly a "point-guard". This season got his highest production of assists (469) and tied his average (6.0) which he had achieved once before in 2004-05 (398 in 66 games). Chauncey Billups (39, 5,594), since arriving the Clippers he barely saw action (40 games in two years) and their numbers are in decline, however it has no intention of retiring. Chris Paul (42, 5,449) is third in assists average for an entire career, and for reference purposes LeBron (46, 5,302), Tony Parker, who made an amazing season (49, 5247), Deron Williams (50, 5,241) and Kevin Garnett (51, 5,224). Jason Terry closed this year to only 48 shy of 5,000 (57, 4,952).

STEALS

Jason Kidd, having had his first season with less than 100 steals last year, consolidated itself back on track in the second place (2,684). Several years ago Kidd have lost the two steals line at overall career average, but his 1.93 is still among the top twenty in the league (from 1973-74). Just behind are Kobe (15, 1,828) and Kevin Garnett (16, 1,742). Metta World Peace (1,665) and is Top 20 thanks to his 122 steals in 75 games this season, and in place 22 appears Shawn Marion (1,642) despite its 1.1 average this year.

In other places, Baron Davis (35, 1,530), Andre Miller (41, 1,464), Ray Allen (47, 1,397), Jason Terry (48, 1,389). Ben Wallace retired 51st (1,369) and later Chris Paul (56, in 1,331, the Clippers guard has the third largest historic average steals per game, with 2.40, behind Alvin Robertson with 2.71 and Micheal Ray Richardson 2.63), LeBron (57, 1,323). Derek Fisher (62, 1,282), Grant Hill (68, 1,248), Vince Carter (tied with Robert Parish in 72nd place with 1,219), Andre Iguodala (74, 1,215), Dwyane Wade (83, 1,183), Mike Bibby (84, 1,172), Tracy McGrady (96, ,1136), Gerald Wallace (104, 1,112), Stephen Jackson (107, 1,103), Rasheed Wallace (finished his career with 1,090 in the 109th place) and tied for 121st are Manu Ginobili and Caron Butler with 1,064.

BLOCKS

Tim Duncan (thanks to his brilliant season with 2.7 blocks average described above) is the highest active stopper (8th, 2652) and he needs only 80 to reach Shaquille O'Neal in the seventh place all-time. Marcus Camby, despite having a season to forget he's 12th with 2,331, nearly 200 of his most immediate, Ben Wallace (2,137). Kevin Garnett, despite his 1.2 blocks this season surpassed Theo Ratliff and stands 18th with 1,970. Jermaine O'Neal with his 1.4 blocks in 55 games is located 20 with 1780. Behind Elton Brand (who despite his discrete numbers this year remains in 24th place with 1,707) is Dwight Howard. Superman got 186 blocks this year in 77 games (2.4 per night) and is located in 31st place with 1530.

In the range between 1,000 and 1500 blocks we have Rasheed Wallace (he closed his career ranked 35th with 1,460), Andrei Kirilenko (38 with 1,442, for the first time he averaged less than a blocked shot per night), Josh Smith (with 1.8 on average this year, stands 37 all-time with 1,440), Samuel Dalembert (in decline, but ranked 38th with 1,411), Erick Dampier (despite her nonexistent season ranks 40 with 1,398) and Pau Gasol (41 with 1,383). Shawn Marion is so far back in 55th with 1,169, and then comes Brendan Haywood (68, 1,099), Tyson Chandler (73, 1,055) and Dirk Nowitzki (75, 1,050). Serge Ibaka appears barely 128th with 778 blocks, and insane 2.6 career average.

TRIPLES

In the list of all-time three-pointers there are lots of players who are still active in the first positions. Indeed, Ray Allen is still the King of the Triple. With 1.9 on average this year continues to become more leader, with 2,857. Thirdly another mutated to "almost" strictly a three-point range shooter, Jason Kidd (again?) With 1,988. Then there's Jason Terry (4th, 1911), Paul Pierce (5th, 1823), Chauncey Billups (despite its harmed campaign remained the 6th with 1,816), Rashard Lewis (8th, 1,741), Steve Nash (10th, 1,677) Vince Carter (11, 1,663), Kobe Bryant (12, 1,637) and Jason Richardson (13, 1,577).

Then, Jamal Crawford (17, 1,536), Mike Bibby (19, 1,517), Joe Johnson (surprisingly 21 with 1429), followed by a discrete Mike Miller (22 in 1424), then Dirk (26 in 1,340), Baron Davis (27, 1,332), Kyle Korver (29, 1,323), in the middle is Stephen Jackson (35, 1,251) and far behind Shane Battier (43, 1,177), Quentin Richardson (44, 1,167), Hedo Turkoglu (45, 1,164), Derek Fisher (46, 1,160), Antawn Jamison (47, 1,155) and then Ben Gordon (51, 1,128), JR Smith (52, 1,123), Metta World Peace (55, 1,102) and Manu Ginobili (56, 1,093). LeBron James ranks 68th with 1,020.
