| Pelicans Talk|| re: Anthony Davis passed Chris Paul in PER last night - L.A. on 3/11/14 at 1:47 pm|
Interesting that DeAndre Jordan is 13th on the PER list. As much as I love DJ, his being 13th on the list is a reminder that effeciency is not the same thing as greatness.
And that's not a knock on AD. AD is a great player by any standard. But a player's PER standing is only part of the story.

I haven't read this thread, but did anyone else catch the factual error? Tyson said that Copernicus was languishling in a jail cell on New Year's Eve, 1600. Copernicus died in 1543.
Seems odd that a show that spent gazillions on CG would not spend a few bucks more for a fact checker. ...
