I thought it would be interesting to see how the Sonics two young bigs were performing at a per 40 minute rate compared to the other young bigs in the NBA. Also, I have included Yao Ming as the All-Star.

These numbers for Swift and Petro are since Hill took over.

Player          Points Rebounds Blocks
Yao Ming 25.4 11.9 1.9
Robert Swift 12.8 11.1 2.6
Johan Petro 12.0 10.0 1.5
Channing Frye 20.4 9.5 1.2
Dwight Howard 17.0 13.3 1.6
Emeka Okafor 15.8 11.9 2.3
Andrew Bogut 12.4 10.1 1.3
Tyson Chandler 7.8 13.5 1.9
Chris Kaman 14.1 11.5 1.8
Andris Biedrins 10.3 10.4 2.0
Rafael Aruajo 7.3 10.0 0.4
Andrew Bynum 9.4 9.7 2.5

It's interesting that when you extrapolate the numbers over forty minutes, Swift is better in all three categories that Johan. However, watching the game, it seems that Johan is simply a better/more developed player than Swift. Maybe its just that Swift seems to make more mistakes when he is out there. Am I imagining this?

You're right. I think it's just the intangibles though, for instance, Petro is much farther along physically and perhaps more rounded defensively.

i think its interesting comparing to Bogut...

im a big believer that stats are overrated...but some are interesting, and those in particular are pretty good

based on that, we seem get more production splitting them than Yao gives Houston...thats pretty cool
