Looking at some +/- trends...

Notes: the PER is a complicated single number rating developed by
John Hollinger
and used extensively in his excellent Pro Basketball Prospectus books.

The league average PER is set to 15, but more importantly for this view, when
comparing the team's production to the opponent production you can learn whether the team
has been getting a net positive or negative overall contribution from that position.

eFG% is the effective field goal percentage, adjusted
for three point shots,
while iFG represents the percentage of shots taken from inside/close
to the hoop.
