LeBron James surprisingly sits at 5th place on this list with +4,543 as of November 29th, 2021. Staying true to his character, Steph Curry currently leads the league in +/- with +283 for the start of this 2021-22 NBA season.
For those not in the know, plus-minus (usually written as +/-) is a stat that shows a player’s impact when on the floor and if it’s affected his team positively or negatively.
For example, if a player has a +1 PM, it means his team outscored the opposing squad by 1 point when he was out on the court. A –1 PM means his team was outscored by a point in the time he spent on the court.
