I used to make these charts in the past. You can question how timely it is to post it right now but it's a matter of me finding just some extra time. I hope it still makes sense going into the halfway mark of the season. Comments to @nbastuffer are welcomed!

Scoring Contribution Percentage Metric
Monday, 01 July 2013

A long time NBAstuffer reader Damon Smith has studied on a new metric called "Scoring Contribution Percentage", which is derived from True Shooting % and adjusted for extra possessions created by offensive rebounds, steals and blocked shots and for possessions lost from turnovers. Not only predicting the scoring differential, Scoring Contribution % can be applied at evaluating individual offensive efficiency of players.

Does Carmelo Anthony Shoot Too Much?
Monday, 10 June 2013

Spread your NBA love, share this page!

This is guest post by Vincent La and Anirudh Jayanti who are undergraduate students at Dartmouth College. They studied on calculating the "skill curve" for players and tried to find out the optimal shot allocation among a certain five-man unit. At the end, for the Knicks' sake, it gives you an idea whether Carmelo Anthony should shoot more or less. Results are interesting!

New Online NBA Data Analytics Program Unveiled
Wednesday, 05 June 2013

The NBA has unveiled a new statistical online service that allows for fans to slice and dice all player and game history for the last 66 years. Going back to the inception of the League, the data covers every play ever made and offers insight into the current stats and analytics as well as those of years gone by. This is a major score for all analytics fans and access to this type of information is almost as good as winning one of the incredible jackpots available at top casino site, AndroidCasino.com.au. SAP has partnered with the NBA official website and launched the stats service to allow fans to instantly analyze and cross reference game data that has been collected from every game since 1947. Generally large data and analytics projects are an exercise in computer science and the results are not available for general consumption, however in this case the NBA analytics online service changes all that.

NBA CIO Michael Gliedman says the project aims to provide fans with access to every box score, advanced shooting charts, in-depth statistical breakdowns identifying clutch, possession, efficiency and team and player comparisons amongst other advanced features. The idea of the service is to offer an immersive online experience that allows fans access to individual and team statistics for every play in NBA history.

Gliedman hopes that the NBA will support as many as 4.5 quadrillion queries from fans, as there are simply so many permutations of each query that can be submitted. The NBA has been looking for an option to provide fans with this data for years, but with the development of the SAP system they are now able to do so.

The analytics service is intended to integrate with fans use of social media whilst they simultaneously watch games. Gliedman firmly believes that fans want to engage in digital conversation and research whilst the game is on and he is capitalising on the dual screen use of many fans. Fans can watch the game on their TV whilst using their mobile to check stats as the service is fully optimised for mobile platforms.

The release of this advanced analytics program shows how huge amounts of data are heading into the mainstream and NBA fans are now able to access the history of the game at the touch of a button.

New schedule brings "back-to-back-to-back" situation that creates new types of rest days. It seems crazy at first, but you'll get it when you go through below examples. More insane events from the condensed season: the new schedule features a 9-IN-12! (nine games in 12 days) stint for the Hawks; Cleveland has a franchise record 9 game home-stand; Toronto will play 19-IN-31 in January, etc. You can extend those by downloading NBA schedule in Excel and build your own analysis.

NBA Lockout Hurts
Tuesday, 08 November 2011
Here's what happened -correction: what did not happen- in this boring offseason so far. I wanted you to pay attention to all of the infected sides while we are waiting for the huge Wednesday.

The NBA lockout has reached a point at which it has begun to negatively impact everyone from fans to players, and everyone in between. This is not just a problem that keeps the players off of the court. It also keeps literally thousands of people – trainers, stadium officials, management, coaches, etc., out of business. In fact, it even affects the tv networks. For example, without the Warriors playing basketball, direct TV San Francisco probably won’t bring in the same revenue, the same being true for local networks all over the country. If the NBA doesn’t resolve its issues soon, these problems will seemingly only spread to more people. Unfortunately, however, things aren’t looking good at the moment.

NBA Commissioner David Stern has already cancelled a batch of games, so we have already hit the point at which no games will be played before December 1st. There are rumors, however, that the league has built up a contingency plan that will still allow for a full, 82-game season despite this setback. If the lockout endures long enough to postpone more games, though, then the season – if, indeed, there is one – will officially have to be shortened to less than its full length. And, if this past weekend’s labor negotiations ended as bleakly as many seem to think they did, it would seem that this unfortunate situation is very likely.

The final hurdle that is keeping the NBA Players’ Association and the league from finalizing a new deal is BRI (Basketball Related Income), which essentially decides how league revenue will be split up between the owners and the players. The owners have been driving a hard line toward a 50/50 split, which would see the players giving up 7% from the last collective bargaining agreement. Now, however, David Stern has offered the players 51%, and has given them until this coming Wednesday the 9th to accept the offer – or else that number will drop dramatically.

While a 51/49 split would allow the players to save some measure of pride in not dropping all the way to 50/50, NBPA leader Derek Fisher has indicated that this offer is not acceptable to the Players’ Association. In fact, there are now strong rumors that many of the league’s most prominent players are pushing to decertify the union, which would essentially allow the players to sue the league, and would also, in effect, start the negotiating process over. Ultimately, it boils down to this: if the players can work out a deal by Wednesday, then the season may actually still be saved in its entirety. However, if not, we may lose an entire season – and everyone from players, to stadium concession workers, and everyone in the NBA business may lose a long year. At the end, the NBA will also lose some portion of its global reputation.
