Humphries put up 14/11 as a starter this year.


On a bad team with Lopez missing much of the year putting more of a load on him. Carl Landry was the 21st best PF in the league by PER with 18.31, Humphries was 23rd with 17.98. Humphries is a better rebounder but Landry's a better and more efficient scorer. I see them both in the same tier of starter on a bad team bench player on a good team.

Yeah, I just don't understand PER. When you look at their numbers side by side, I don't see how Landry's are better.

Humphries.. LINK

Landry shoots just 2% better and scores more per minute. But Humphries beasts him in rebounds, blocks, assists, steals and even has a better assist to turnover ratio. I'll never understand the formula..

Landry had a much higher usage than Humphrise, 23% vs 17%. Landry's higher usage plus higher points per minute, about the same point average in 10 fewer minutes, is probably what puts him ahead of Humphries. Assuming he could keep producing at the same rate, give Landry the same 35 minutes per game as Humphries instead of just 24 and the comparison goes from 12.5/5.2 to 17.7/7.5 which is a little better than Humphries 13.8/11

Landry's True Shooting Percentage is almost 4% better because he hits his free throws a little better, 80% vs 75%.
