NBA Point Guards 2010 - Cumulative Rankings

First, welcome to Behind the Arc.  As you might guess the focus here is basketball.  Initially I plan to heavily cover the NBA, with some college hoops as well.  But that is subject to change.

For my first project I have been researching all of the different methods for evaluating NBA players.  There are a number of statistical approaches that very intelligent basketball experts have put together.  I pulled together multiple evaluations that I think help to paint the picture.  They include:
I looked at player performance from the 2009-2010 regular season and pulled the evaluations in those five categories.  I then ranked them based on those numbers and added up the rankings to get a total rank with lower numbers being better than higher numbers.
