Highest Player Efficiency Rating Ever
The NBA’s player efficiency rating (PER) is an all-around stat that aims to measure how efficient a player is per minute played. Essentially, the higher the PER figure is, the more the player scored, rebounded, and blocked. The negative numbers (turnovers, fouls, missed shots) are also recorded.
Giannis Ante… Antokum… the Greek Freak recorded the PER rating in league history for a single season during the 2019-20 season. His PER rating was 31.86, while Michael Jordan sits comfortably on the fourth spot with “just” 31.71. However, if you take a look at all NBA players’ overall careers, MJ sits on the number-one spot with an average of 27.91. Giannis is 18th with 23.67.
