The point guard spectrum and where Derrick Rose fits


Ryan Schwan is a smart dude, and a great blogger over at Hornets247.com. He put together some Venn Diagrams for the league's PGs, separated by advanced metrics (some more common than others) like TS%, AST%, Usage, etc.

Using the league average (for 10gm, 25mpg PGs) as a baseline for making certain categories, he charts together which point guards provide singular or multiple qualities. Even combines different categories based on the 'type' of PG you're looking for, though I'd say his 'master' list is a far-from-perfect combination of qualities.

But no matter how you slice these numbers, the glaring thing throughout is that Rose isn't even above average in...pretty much anything. He only shows up in one of the three diagrams and that was as a high-usage PG.
