Until then, I think
rankings and percentages are superior to adjusted stats for evaluating top players
Rankings and % are excellent things to consider but they still only work for single seasons and are poor comparisons for comparing different seasons with different eras.
Also with rankings and % we have to then account for influx of major new streams of offensive talent and more detailed and complex (and more effective defensive systems).
Basically my point is that rankings and %, tell us how certain players did against their peers within that season but it doesn't provide much context on how player A in 50 compares to player B in 67 or 94 or 07.
Adjusted stats do attempt to do those comparisons.
