Last year, for my own personal amusement, I started to post a different version of player rankings from the official FIVB version using statistical categories that, I think, are more interesting and accurate and useful. I thought I would do the same this year.
Below are the Top 5 lists in the different skill categories. They are compiled using the Science Untangled reporting app, which is one among the suite of apps developed by Ben Raymond. If you want to fiddle around with the statistics yourself, he has made a mini version of this app using just this data. The link is here.
