The NBA is well into Round 1 of the 2013 Playoffs and because it’s fun to compare performances in the current season to performances in past seasons, it’s worth looking into the following features on RealGM.
Check out the players ranked with the highest PER this playoff season by selecting ‘NBA’, ‘Player Stats’ and choosing ‘Advanced Stats’ and ‘Playoffs’ from the dropdown menus.
Anthony Randolph with the Denver Nuggets has the highest PER to date in this season’s playoffs with 35.77 PER, though Stephen Curry has the highest amongst players with more significant minutes.
Historically, the highest PER since the 92-93 playoffs goes to LeBron James with 39.06 from the 08-09 season. This can be found by searching ‘Individual Seasons’, ‘Historical Season’, and selecting ‘Advanced Stats’ and ‘Playoffs’ from the dropdown menus.
These pages offer player rankings in other categories also such as FIC, Offensive Rating, Defensive Rating, Assist %, etc.
Another unique feature we suggest checking out is the player rankings in Win Shares. From the ‘Player Stats’ page, select ‘Misc. Stats’ from the dropdown menu.
Stephen Curry has the most Win Shares this playoff season with 1.11. However, Curry has a way to go to surpass Tim Duncan’s historical record of 5.94 Win Shares from the 02-03 season.
Check out the other players who have made the list.

The RealGM Team Roster Composition Search page not only provides data on how a team’s roster was composed, but also includes a look at the team’s performance for the season, the number of All-Star and MVP players on the team and the number of 1st and 2nd round picks a team has on its roster.
You also have the ability to create your own criteria using the ‘Custom Search’ button on the right side of the page and by clicking on one of the 20 listed options.
For example, you can click on ‘NBA Champions’ link and see that the 04-05 Spurs had 10 players on their roster acquired via free agency, or that the 92-93 Bulls and 07-08 Celtics each had seven players acquired via the draft.
Another interesting search criteria is ‘Built Through Trades’, which shows the teams that acquired at least eight players on their roster via trade. No team with that type of roster composition has even advanced to The Finals, with the 02-03 Pistons and 01-02 getting as far as the Eastern Conference Finals.
When performing your own Custom Search, you can select any number of seasons dating back to 92-93, along with specific teams, team performance, age range, draft year, draft status and many more categories.
You will receive your own custom URL with each search you complete that you can share with others.
Here is a search of every Raptors’ season in their history, which shows that they have sent at least one player to the All-Star Game in 10 seasons and they ended up in the playoffs in five of those seasons. You can also see that the 11-12 team had more players acquired via free agency than any other season (7).
Do you ever wonder how heavily the Spurs have used the draft to compile their team? How about the number of players the Nets have signed via free agency?
RealGM now provides data through the Team Roster Composition page that shows how each member of a team is acquired, whether it be through the draft, trade, waiver or free agency. The data goes back to the 1992-93 season (use the dropdown menu to select a season).
