Can we milk the Assist Way and find the value of the Players?

With this assist analysis the question will rise again:

“Can we boil, with the box score expansion to assist points and assist possessions, a basketball player’s performance value down to a single number?”

We answer: no, we can not. The assisting game is only a part of the game. Rodman‘s indirect demonstration in his last game closed this door: we can not do it with only the individual box score numbers.
The assist is already consummated in the evaluation fraction.

There is only one good scientific way to put and evaluate the performance of all these factors together : evaluating the performance of the individuals with their team results.

Can Mendeleev create a version of Newton’s’ ”Law of Gravitation” with a table of the intensity of the light of the elements? Can he weigh the planet?

No! But Mendeleev learned us some other very important links and things.
With a table of the elements, he can read and predict many properties of the elements.
With a correct expansion of the table of the box score, we can read and predict many properties of a player.

With a much richer and correct individual table of the box score, it is still impossible to boil a basketball player’s performance value down to a correct weighted single number!
And what about the defensive evaluation of the performance?
