The All-Star break meant a shortened week for the regular NBA folks, meaning there were smaller sample sizes to work with.

No team in the league played more than two games and 16 of the league’s 30 teams played just once.

That meant for purposes of this weekly feature, none of those teams were eligible for inclusion. Two games is a small sample size, one is just ridiculous.

Among the six players named as NBA Best of the Week this week, just one of them has appeared in this space before, as fine a tribute to small sample sizes as there can ever be.

So relax, enjoy and things will normalize next week.

As always, the players selected must play at least 25 minutes a game in more than half of their team’s games (rookies must average 20 minutes a game to be selected).
