Hollinger's PER rating of the Sonics

John Hollinger of ESPN has rated every player in the NBA. You can see the Sonics team here. Interesting, and quite likely matching the opening night starting line up, there were only 5 Sonics who Hollinger projects to come in above the league average this coming season: Ray Allen, Rashard Lewis, Luke Ridnour, Robert Swift and Chris Wilcox. Ray Allen leads all Sonics players coming in at #27, and Rashard Lewis follows closely behind at #29. Chris Wilcox rates out at #65, Luke Ridnour at #78, and Robert Swift at #107.

Luke is 19th among PG's, Ray is 6th among SG's, Rashard is 5th among SF's, Chris Wilcox is 19th among PF's, and Robert Swift is 18th among C's.

Hollinger's top 15 are:
1. LeBron James (there is a significant gap between Bron and #2)
2. Kobe Bryant
3. Dirk Nowitzki
4. Amare Stoudemire
5. Dwyane Wade
6. Kevin Garnett
7. Chris Paul
8. Pau Gasol
9. Gilbert Arenas
10. Allen Iverson
11. Shaquille O'Neal
12. Tracy McGrady
13. Elton Brand
14. Andrei Kirilenko
15. Shawn Marion

Phoenix and Miami are the only two teams with multiple players in the top 15. Phoenix with Nash at #19 get 3 players in the top 20. San Antonio has 3 players in the top 25.
