It was more or less a comment on your simplistic association between Player having x points and overall standings (which seems to be the suggestion? Kabs produces points, points are directly associated to overall standing, so Kabs helps us in the standing. which can be easly true or false).

As for the SO's comment, pretty sure you mean that SO's is easily prone to statistical prediction, as in, it has less variables to calculate, making it easier to predict.

People have been keeping track of SO stats since it was introduced,
