Maggette's PER

is good right now

PER is the last figure in each line

33 Corey Maggette, LAC 40 35.4 .476 .831 .606 11.0 12.9 24.4 4.1 15.0 9.6 19.99
34 Josh Howard, DAL 48 36.5 .472 .809 .551 9.5 6.5 23.2 5.0 18.3 11.9 19.79
35 Tony Parker, SAS 39 34.7 .488 .724 .539 22.9 10.0 27.0 1.6 8.7 5.2 19.72
36 Tracy McGrady, HOU 36 35.3 .435 .691 .507 18.7 8.7 29.4 1.4 14.5 8.0 19.69
37 Paul Pierce, BOS 49 37.9 .447 .827 .575 18.7 11.6 24.1 2.3 14.9 8.9 19.52
38 Richard Hamilton, DET 49 34.9 .497 .816 .563 18.9 8.5 23.7 3.8 7.7 5.7 19.37

He is ahead of some great players right now.  Also, it is interesting that Hollinger uses Maggette in his explanation of PER:  
    "What PER can do, however, is summarize a player's statistical accomplishments in a single number. That allows us to unify the disparate data on each player that we try to track in our heads (e.g., Corey Maggette: free-throw machine, good rebounder, decent shooter, poor passer, etc.) so that we can move on to evaluating what might be missing from the stats."

LeBron's is over 30 in PER. PER should be taken with a grain of salt...Bruce Bowen was in the bottom 5 last year...a starter for the champs.
