Players of the Month: December (so far)

Welcome, all! Here I will be grading players according to their estimated offensive and defensive impacts (using my per-100-possession stat, SimplePlayerRating) via Month-of-December-State. I'm rolling out my Defensive SPR here, finally. Formula at the bottom.

EDIT: Fixed the per-game numbers.

Surprises of the month go to: Andray Blatche (#6 #7), Paul George (#9 #10), Kemba Walker (#10 #11) and JJ Hickson (#17 #21!!!).

Without further ado, here are your top and bottom 26.
