I'm sorry to only single this little blurp out but how the fuck is Ginobili similar to Jordan. I like Manu's game and all, but c'mon, Jordan?

They're both 6-6? Honestly, I don't know how much the 'stats' of age, height, and weight are considered in these studies. But when you add more variables, you get weaker correlations with all variables. I prefer 'similarity' lists that are generated only by production statistics. But maybe that's just me. The 2 studies linked above both compare last year's players to alltime greats. The first one references the alltimers' Peak Year, while the 2nd compares to Career rates.
