How GOOD Is Jason Collins?

Seems like an odd question, considering how everyone is down on the Nets' center...well, everyone but his teammates and coach. His offensive stats are miserable and even things he used to do well, like foul shooting, have fallen off. And yet...Collins has a very high +/- rating, used by basketball pro's to chart a player's contribution across the board. A group of statistics geeks at ABPMetrics takes a look at Collins and suggests there is a method to Lawrence Frank's perceived madness.
