With Finals appearances on the line, there's no doubt that none of the players below were thinking "score for my school," or "rebound for my uniform number" on Friday night. But what are statistics for if not to be shuffled and reorganized?

Here's a look at how the Conference Finals statistics play out when based on uniform numbers, schools and last names. All of the statistics have been updated through May 31.

WHICH TOP IS TOPS?
What's the greatest uniform number in the Conference Finals? Eric Williams' No. 55. What's the highest scoring uniform number in the Conference Finals. That'd be Shaq and Paul Pierce's No. 34.

Aaron Williams (59 pts, 23 reb, 6 asst)
TOTALS: 378 pts, 156 reb, 38 asst (572 total units)

NO. 5:
Robert Horry (64 pts, 66 reb, 26 asst)
Jason Kidd (105 pts, 67 reb, 61 asst)
Hedo Turkoglu (65 pts, 34 reb, 12 asst)
TOTALS: 234 pts, 167 reb, 99 asst (500 total units)

NO. 8:
Kobe Bryant (160 pts, 34 reb, 20 asst)
Mateen Cleaves (0 pts, 0 reb, 0 asst)
Anthony Johnson (7 pts, 3 reb, 5 asst)
Antoine Walker (135 pts, 59 reb, 22 asst)
TOTALS: 302 pts, 96 reb, 47 asst (445 total units)

NO. 4:
Tony Battie (34 pts, 58 reb, 5 asst)
Chris Webber (150 pts, 68 reb, 33 asst)
TOTALS: 184 pts, 126 reb, 38 asst (348 total units)

NO. 10:
Mike Bibby (130 pts, 20 reb, 27 asst)
Lindsey Hunter (25 pts, 4 reb, 9 asst)
TOTALS: 155 pts, 24 reb, 36 asst (215 total units)

NO. 24:
Bobby Jackson (72 pts, 19 reb, 10 asst)
Richard Jefferson (41 pts, 25 reb, 7 asst)
TOTALS: 113 pts, 44 reb, 17 asst (174 total units)

NO. 30:
Mark Blount (2 pts, 0 reb, 1 asst)

NO. 20:
Brian Shaw (14 pts, 7 reb, 13 asst)

NO. 3:
Devean George (32 pts, 27 reb, 4 asst)
Gerald Wallace (2 pts, 0 reb, 1 asst)
TOTALS: 34 pts, 27 reb, 5 asst (66 total units)

What it means ... Shaq's superhuman Game 6 solidified 34's stranglehold on the top spot ... And it might be of little consolation to Mr. Strickland after having been bumped from the playoffs Friday night, but his big Games 5 and 6 catapulted the No. 20 out of the "uniform" cellar.

CLASS IS BACK IN SESSION
The Nets may have taken the Celtics to school on Friday night, but Antoine Walker's Kentucky Wildcats are tops in total stats.


Scot Pollard's Kings fell to the Lakers, and, in a roundabout way, his Jayhawks also fell to Arizona.

Walter McCarty (6 pts, 12 reb, 0 asst)

Stanford:
Jason Collins (7 pts, 2 reb, 0 asst)
Mark Madsen (0 pts, 1 reb, 0 asst)
TOTALS: 7 pts, 3 reb, 0 asst (10 total units)

What it means ... Thanks to 'Zona being "in the zone" (Bibby and Jefferson had big nights on Friday), the Wildcats leapfrogged Paul Pierce and the Jayhawks to reclaim second place.

WHAT'S IN A NAME?
If the Pacers had made it to the East Finals, then this would be all O'Neals (Shaq and Jermaine). As it stands, though, this is the Walkers' world.

Walkers:
Antoine Walker (135 pts, 59 reb, 22 asst)
Samaki Walker (13 pts, 22 reb, 2 asst)
TOTALS: 148 pts, 81 reb, 24 asst (253 total units)

Williams:
Aaron Williams (59 pts, 23 reb, 6 asst)
Eric Williams (37 pts, 24 reb, 4 asst)
TOTALS: 96 pts, 47 reb, 10 asst (153 total units)

Browns:
Chucky Brown (0 pts, 0 reb, 0 asst)
Kedrick Brown (0 pts, 0 reb, 0 asst)
TOTALS: 0 pts, 0 reb, 0 asst (0 total units)

What it means ... Chucky's Game 7 in Sacramento is the last chance for the Browns to get on the board. Otherwise, it's all Walkers.
