A Look at PER Compared to Salary for 2010 All-Stars
Any player named to the All-Star team (injured or not) is represented in this chart. Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Brandon Roy, and Allen Iverson will not play.
The player with the highest salary who did not make the All-Star team is Tracy McGrady. His salary of $23,239,561 leads the NBA. If he doesn't play again this season then McGrady would have made $500,000 for every minute he's played this year.
The player with the highest PER who did not make the All-Star team is Kevin Love whose player efficiency rating is 22.71 which is 12th in the NBA and puts him in between Kobe Bryant and Brandon Roy.
Greg Oden will finish the season with a PER of 23.43 which is currently 8th in the NBA.
Among the 12 players who will dress for each team, only 6 from the East and 5 from the West actually beat the linear trend line.
