Mutombo wins IBM award
Posted: Sunday May 09, 1999 08:29 PM
Mutombo, who helped lead Atlanta to a 31-19 record by averaging 10.8 points, 12.2 rebounds and 2.94 blocked shots, finished with a 115.67 computer rating.
The rating is derived from a complicated formula: Points, field goal attempts, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks are added together, and personal fouls and turnovers are subtracted. That sum is added to the number of a team's victories multiplied by 10, and that total is multiplied by 250 to reach a number that is divided by team points minus field goal attempts plus rebounds, assists, steals and blocks minus personal fouls and turnovers.
Mutombo's award was announced Sunday. The Sixth Man Award will be announced Monday and the All-Defensive team will be named Thursday.
