After this game, Brandan “Wright Hand Path” Wright’s PER is an insane 45.3. I don’t want to boast, but I always knew Brandan was the most elite player in the league. He just needed the right circumstances to break out. Dirk Nowitzki being out for the time being is the best thing to ever happen for fans of truly next-level basketball.
If you’re one of those people who thinks PER is a stupid metric, you’re eating your words right now. It paints a stunningly accurate portrait of the NBA: Brandan Wright is far and away the best player to have ever lived, with jokesters like MJ, LeBron, Kareem, and Wilt leading the next tier of players with their PER’s barely in the low thirties. Pop quiz: how many of those wannabes shot 90% from the field for an entire season? None of them.
My only question is, when does the hall of fame get demolished and replaced with a shrine devoted to the worship of our new basketball god?
