Blogtable: Who is best player (and team) in Eastern Conference now?

From NBA.com Staff

Who is the best player (and best team) in the East right now?

With LeBron James reportedly moving West , who is the best player in the Eastern Conference right now? And who’s the best team?

Giannis Antetokounmpo is now the best player in the East -- and if he develops a reliable perimeter shot, he soon could restore some balance as the best player in the NBA. With Mike Budenholzer taking over for drama king Jason Kidd (and interim man Joe Prunty) as the Milwaukee Bucks' coach, hopefully we'll see the "Greek Freak’s" talents blossom in all their glory and be put to proper team use. The best team figures to be the Boston Celtics , presumably with Kyrie Irving back at point guard, Gordon Hayward feeling like a brand-new free agent signee all over again and coach Brad Stevens and basketball boss Danny Ainge sorting out the rotation and depth chart. Now, if Philadelphia manages to acquire Kawhi Leonard without stripping away too many helpful role players, the Sixers might push up hard from their No. 2 status as “best team” even as Joel Embiid challenges Giannis for “best player.”

Shaun Powell : Best player is Giannis Antetokounmpo by a whisker over Joel Embiid, only because Giannis can play multiple positions. He'll need to prove he can take the Bucks a bit deeper in the playoffs. A healthy Boston Celtics squad qualifies as the best team, although if the "star-hunting" Sixers are successful this summer, that could change.

John Schuhmann : Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid have the most talent, but in the playoffs, they both got outplayed by the same guy: Al Horford . He doesn't have the numbers that stand out, but he is the fulcrum on both ends of the floor for what is now the best team in the East. And even with the returns of Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving, he will be the Celtics' most important player next season , because his skill set remains unique on their roster. Maybe Antetokounmpo and/or Embiid surpass him in the next year, but for now, I'll go with the guy who just had one heck of a postseason run.

| PRO FOOTBALL; Short Memory a Great Help to Young Cornerback

Young cornerbacks know that embarrassment is inevitable in the National Football League, that moments will come when the opposing quarterback seems intent on meting out a night's worth of punishment. Will Peterson, a second-year cornerback for the Giants, had barely squatted into a crouch on the first play of tonight's preseason game against New England before he was on the business end of a 62-yard connection between Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and receiver Deion Branch.

But after the play, Peterson did not succumb to Brady's will. He did what all fledgling cornerbacks are taught.

''After that I was like: 'The dude made a play. I hope he throws a deep ball again,' '' Peterson said after the Giants' 22-19 victory over the Patriots at Giants Stadium.

Asked when he learned he needed a short memory to play cornerback in the N.F.L., Peterson smiled. ''I learned that last year,'' he said.

After Brady's opening salvo, the Giants' second-year cornerbacks, Peterson and Will Allen, kept the Patriots' first-team receivers in front of them for the rest of the night.

They may not be old enough to rent cars in some states, but they are continuing to mature in a reshaped Giants secondary that lost safety Sam Garnes to free agency in the off-season and the veteran cornerback Jason Sehorn, who is out indefinitely with an injured right knee.

Brady opened the game by faking a handoff, spinning in the pocket and unleashing a floater down the left sideline toward Peterson and Branch. The pass was underthrown. Branch slowed and made the reception. Peterson kept going.

''I was playing him instead of the ball,'' Peterson said. ''I didn't make the adjustment.''

Coach Jim Fassel said he and the team's defensive coordinator, Johnnie Lynn, actually anticipated Brady's long throw on the first play.

''They came out and threw a deep pass a year ago,'' Fassel said, referring to last year's preseason game. ''Johnnie and I thought they might do it again.''

He's covered Jordan. He's covered Kobe. And LeBron vs. the Warriors. Go behind the N.B.A.'s curtain with the league's foremost expert.

In what follows, it is important to distinguish between a “ completer ” and a “ graduate ”. Following the NCES convention, we use the term “high school completer ” to indicate a person who either graduated high school or obtained an alternative credential (e.g., GED). High school graduates are those who receive a traditional high school diploma from an accredited high school program.

Using household surveys, school administrative data and longitudinal surveys, we recalculate national high school graduation rates by race and gender. We discuss the problems and limitations of each data source in detail and show that, after adjusting for a variety of sources of discrepancy among alternative measures, all of these data sources give a consistent picture of U.S. graduation rates.

The Current Population Survey (CPS) is a monthly survey of approximately 50,000 U.S. households administered by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It is primarily designed to track employment and earnings trends in the civilian non-institutional population. Novica Calcite dangle earrings Serene Blue fQPff62Zkf
The CPS also collects the educational status of each household member.

Every October, the CPS administers an educational supplement that asks detailed questions concerning the educational history and attainment level of each household member. The NCES uses this data to calculate the 18- to 24-year-old status completion rate depicted in Novica Sterling silver cuff bracelet Distinction Sterling Silver Cuff Bracelet zTuy2zKVBs
. Several recent papers have discussed the problems that arise from using the status completion rate as a measure of secondary school performance (see, e.g., Fine Jewelry 14K Gold 41mm Round Stud Earrings Swarovski Zirconia CmnQKBfI
, Greene [2001] , Mishel and Roy [2006] , Sum et al. [2003] , and Geneva Geneva Platinum Womens Silver Tone Bracelet Watch15177 OPetmfXAxl
). These studies claim that the status completion rate is a poor measure of the high school graduation rate because: (1) GED recipients are counted as high school graduates; (2) institutional and military populations are excluded from the CPS; (3) one household member responds for the entire household roster (proxy response bias); (4) the CPS is not able to locate all persons eligible for the survey (low sample coverage); and (5) recent immigrants, who were never enrolled in U.S. secondary schools, are included in the estimates.

Using decennial Census data, we assess the importance of each of these potential sources of bias for the true high school graduation rate. A sub-sample of the Census, the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series (IPUMS), contains more detailed education and demographic information than the CPS for both a 1 percent and 5 percent representative sample of the entire U.S. resident population. It is a useful tool for examining potential sources of bias in CPS-based estimates because it does not suffer from many of the disadvantages of the CPS. First, its universe is more inclusive than that of the CPS because it samples both institutional and military populations. Second, coverage rates are significantly higher in the Census than in the CPS. Finally, the Census began asking immigration questions long before the CPS did so. Immigrants who did not attend U.S. schools can be identified and excluded from the calculation of the graduation rate starting with the 1970 data.
