ZhaoBao Ge

29-year old center ZhaoBao Ge (213-C-92) had an amazing evening in the last round for Shanxi L. and receives a Hoops Agents Player of the Week award for round 1.
He had a double-double of 31 points and 12 rebounds, while his team beat Bayi Rockets (#12, 0-1), the league’s bottom-ranked team 105-92. Shanxi L. is placed at 7th position in Chinese league. But it’s just the very beginning of the season and Shanxi L. won just one (their first) game. It’s too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. In the team’s last game Ge had a remarkable 75.0% from 2-point range. He has many years of experience at Shanxi L., through which he has constantly improved. Ge has impressive league stats. He is league’s best scorer averaging so far 31.0ppg. Ge is in league’s top in rebounds (9th best: 12.0rpg) and averages solid 3.0spg and 75.0% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Harold Yu (221-C) of Zhejiang GB.. He is American center in his first season at Zhejiang GB.. In the last game Yu recorded impressive double-double of 25 points and 12 rebounds. Of course he led Zhejiang GB. to another comfortable win outscoring Fujian S. (0-1) 108-85. His team has extremely good start of the season. They won their first game. However the season is at the beginning, so everything can happen. They still may lose their high position in the standings. Yu is a newcomer at Zhejiang GB. and quickly became one of team’s most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 25.0ppg (#3). He also registered 12.0 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to center HanLin Tao (208-C-91) of Shandong H. (#5). Tao scored 24 points and grabbed sixteen rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Shandong H., leading his team to a 105-93 win against Beijing RF (#9, 1-1). Shandong H. has a very good start of the season. But there was just one game played, so it’s too early to judge them at this stage. Tao also has a very good start of the season with very strong stats. The season just started for Tao as he played only first game. But it already looks like he can be team’s leader.

The Player of the week is selected based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it’s accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) – 2*BSAG – 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM – 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) – 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) – (FTA-FTM)
