Charlie Bell an All-Star? Interesting theory

Milwaukee Bucks fans will be happy (or shocked) to find out the team has an All-Star on its roster.  If it weren’t for the title to this post, I bet most of you who watch games wouldn’t be able to guess who it is in a million years.

According to “Adjusted +/-“, Bucks G Charlie Bell is amongst the four top performing guards in the NBA’s Eastern Conference and therefore deserving  of a spot on the NBA All-Star game roster.

This will come as a complete surprise to anyone who’s watched him play, or indeed looked at his accomplishments on the basketball floor.  Let’s see, he’s a well below average shooter, a below average rebounder, a below average passer, and he’s below average at producing steals.  I will credit his defense as a bit above average, and I will mention that he does a good job protecting the ball, but is that enough to make the All-Star team?

I think Adjusted +/- qualifies as interesting information, but it can’t be taken seriously as  a performance statistic when its results are so random, inconsistent, and frankly ridiculous.

    the day Charlie Bell deserves to be an all star is the day you’ll see my fat butt starting opening day for the Cubs. I’d think about hiring him as a farmhand if I had a herd of cattle though.
