2007-2008 Regular Season Play-By-Play Data Now Available

I want to let everyone know that I’ve updated the data page with an initial draft of the 2007-2008 regular season play-by-play data.

This data is in CSV format, and includes every player on the court along with any shot location information available.

To provide this data in this format, I haven’t been able to make a comprehensive archive. As of now I’m missing 47 games, or about 3.8% of the games. About 35 or so of these games I believe I can provide at some point, but it involves trying to figure out who is on the court by hand (my programs can only do so much). If you need any of these games, give Basketball Value a shot.

Here is the direct download link:

Let me know of any failures (and successes!) you have with this data set.
