NBA ROOKIE RANKINGS 2018-19

NBA rookie rankings for the 2018-19 season, based on the standard deviation of 9 key statistics.

We assign each player's statistic a value based on how good or bad they compare to everybody else in the NBA this season (otherwise known as a Z score). We then calculate the Z scores using our formula to produce a total number (TOTAL), and use it to rank each player.
