Ed Davis Unaware of Efficiency Rating
Ask any of the stats gurus out there to pick one stat that gives a good day-to-day indication of how much a player is helping his team and he’ll send you to PER or player efficiency rating.
(Ed) Davis, with a PER of 19.71, sits second among Raptors and 44th overall in the NBA, just ahead of Blake Griffin and just behind Indiana’s David West.
Davis had no idea where he sat in relation to the rest of his teammates, but he is well aware that his game has taken a major step up from last season.
“No, I didn’t know that,” Davis said. “I just think I’ve improved my overall game, everything from my conditioning, to this being my third year and having played summer league and being around the coaches all summer have all helped me.”
