NBA Player Value per Win Shares and Contracts: Part I: 2000 NBA Draft


***Part of the “NBA Player Value by Win-Share, Contract, and Draft Class Production” page. I decided to create this page to see just how valuable a player is by dividing the money they’ve received over the course of their career by the amount of Win Shares they have produced over their career. I will start with the 2000 NBA Draft and finish with the 2013 NBA Draft by the start of the 2014 NBA season, hopefully. I will be comparing players, draft classes, and more to see exactly how valuable a player has been to a team, a draft class to an era, and more. In the end, I hope to have a clearer answer, and maybe even more of a respect for certain players. Seasons, games played, Win Shares, money earned, and all-star teams made are the things I will be focusing on, on several different levels: lottery picks, remaining first-round picks, and second-round picks.***

In my first installment of this 13-part series, I will be looking at the 2000 NBA draft class. I will only be looking at the players who were drafted, not undrafted players. Here is what I found:

Average career length for lottery pick( 13 players, 128 seasons) = 9.8 seasons
Average career length of other first rounders (16 players, 130 seasons) = 8.125 seasons
Average career length of first rounders total (29 players, 258 seasons) = 8.89 seasons
Percentage of first rounders being an all-star (2 all-star teams, 258 seasons) = 0.00775%
Average career length of second rounders (29 players, 102 seasons) = 3.5 seasons
Percentage of second rounders being an all-star (1 all-star team, 102 seasons) = 0.0098%
Total percentage of all-star seasons in draft class (3 all-star seasons, 360 seasons) = 0.0083%
Total amount of games played by lottery picks = 6,739 games
Total amount of games played by other first rounders = 6,734 games
Total amount of games played by second rounders = 3,895 games
Total amount of games played by draft class = 17,368 games
Percent of total games played by lottery pick = 38.8%
Percent of total games played by other first rounders = 38.77%
Percent of total games played by all first rounders = 77.57%
Percent of total games played by second rounders = 22.42%
Total amount of money made by lottery picks = $555,274,750
Total amount of money made by other first rounders = $402,563,673
Total money made by all first rounders = $957,838,423
Total money made by second rounders = $273,218,371
Total money made by the draft class = $1,231,056,794
Total money average made per draft pick = $42,450,234.28
Total win shares produced by lottery picks = 273.9 win shares
Total win shares produced by rest of first round = 243.5 win shares
Total win shares produced by first round picks = 517.4 win shares
Total win shares produced by second round = 153.1 win shares
Total win shares produced by whole draft class = 670.5 win shares
Money made by all-stars = $214,612,749
Money made by non-all-stars = $1,016,444,045
Money paid-per win share of lottery picks = $2,027,290.07
Money paid-per win share of rest of first rounders = $1,653,238.90
Money paid-per win share of whole first round = $1,851,253.23
Money paid-per win share of second rounders = $1,784,547.60
Money paid-per win share of entire draft = $1,836,028.03
