2007 NBA Most Effective Player All-Stars

In my attempts at being a well-rounded sports fan, I've played around with an older stat formula for basketball called "Most Effectve Player". It essentially takes all of the good things a player can do in a game (points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocked shots), subtracts all of the "bad" things a player does (fouls, turnovers, missed field goals and free throws), multiply by 100 and divide by minutes played.

This year, Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks ran away with the MEP totals, with a 68.33 season average. Kevin Garnett of the Minnesota Timberwolves was second with 67.88.
