One thing Amar'e Stoudemire and I have in common is no love for Shane Battier, so let's review Shaved Monkey Nuts' worst plays, performances, stats and splits from the 2012 season.
The Miami HEAT Index is reviewing each HEAT player's performance in the 2012 season, from the most productive to the least productive. LeBron, Wade, Chalmers, Bosh, The Warden and UD were the first 6 players reviewed. The 7th review is Shaved Monkey Nuts.
This analysis uses Estimated Wins Produced, a statistic created by sports economist David Berri. Since an average team's winning percentage is 0.500, an average player produces 0.100 est. wins per 48 minutes (est.WP48). A star player produces 0.200 est.WP48 and great players produce 0.300 est.WP48. See the HEAT Produced Page for more information on Est. Wins Produced.
