Defensive Rating
Author: Dean Oliver

A metric which is invented by Dean Oliver. The premise of individual defense is that players force "defensive stops", preventing the other team from scoring.

An individual can do that by forcing a missed shot that then gets rebounded by his team, by getting a defensive rebound, by forcing a turnover, or by fouling a player who misses both foul shots, the second of which is then rebounded by the defense.
