The Plus-Minus All-NBA Teams

There are so many great plus-minus statistics out there nowadays that I decided to throw the box scores away today--you're welcome, Daryl Morey--and let various plus-minus stats pick this year's All-NBA teams.

Yes, we're only 81 percent of the way through the 2010-11 season. But I believe we already have enough data, for the most part, to see how these All-NBA teams will shape up, when using these advanced statistics.

Below, I've listed Top 25 rankings of four variations of plus-minus stats, with original numbers supplied by BasketballValue.com, NBA.com and 82Games.com (FYI, I used my own formulas to figure weighted adjusted plus-minus and four-year APM).

I then combined the data ... separated the players by position ... and then the numbers pretty much picked the players themselves, based on their plus-minus performance.

So here you go ... Meet the 2010-11 Plus-Minus All-NBA teams based on those numbers.

And below these award-winners, you'll find four different rankings of Plus-Minus Top 25s, with our All-NBA players listed in boldface.
