NBA Statistical Mutants


For years now people have been fascinated by the idea of mutants.  The X-Men comics have been around since 1963 spawning dozens of characters and hundreds of comic books.  There was a cartoon television series that lasted five seasons as well as six movies with a seven on the way this summer.  And then there are the series like Heroes, which were popular for a hot minute.

Because such a high level of athleticism is required to succeed in the NBA, fans of the league have had the privilege to watch the closest thing we’ll ever see to mutants.  Jordan’s will, Kobe’s longevity, Lebron’s size and speed combo, and Durant’s length and skill are all examples of real world mutants.  There are countless more.  But the rest of this post isn’t dedicated to the physical freaks, instead it is dedicated to the statistical freaks in the NBA.

The Parameters:

1) Whole Numbers Only
2) Must Have Played At Least 30 Games This Season To Qualify (Sorry Ryan Anderson)
3) If More Than Five Players Meet The Criteria Than You Can’t Be Considered A Statistical Mutant
4) Physical Attributes Are Not Taken Into Account
5) Players Can Qualify Multiple Times
