Personal Foul Efficiency

In by NBAstuffer Team

Personal Foul Efficiency measures ratio of steals plus blocks to personal fouls. Indicates how efficiently a player forces turnovers, removing the bias of jump-happy or slaptastic players who accumulate deceptive block or steal totals.


Andris Biedrins’ block total seems comparable to Ben Wallace’s, until you realize that Wallace has more blocks with half the fouls. This statistic can be deceiving, since fouls may increase with defensive effort, but it is still a useful measure for comparative analysis.
