NBA analyst of our sister site HoopsHype Alberto De Roa put together a new metric he dubbed “Global Rating” that, as he puts it “combines players’ and teams’ statistics to rank players according to their productivity on the court” which also factors in the number of contests a given player has been unavailable for in a specific season (for a more detailed breakdown, check this out).

For the 2022-23 NBA season so far, De Roa has not only used Global Rating to analyze the NBA’s players against one another but also how each draft class remaining in the league stacks up against their peers.

In the 2009 draft class, Boston veteran big man Blake Griffin checks in as the eighth-best player remaining in the league, behind (in order) Stephen Curry, DeMar DeRozan, Jrue Holiday, James Harden, Patty Mills, Wesley Matthews, and Patrick Beverley.

The Oklahoma alum checks in ahead of James Johnson and Taj Gibson, but is ranked at just the 321st-best player in the NBA overall this season at this late stage of his career.
