Power Rankings, SSR Updates, and More
- 22 Comment
Over the past few days I’ve done a little house keeping and updated various sections of the website. Here is a quick list of the updates:
- NBA Power Rankings: @kpelton‘s recent Basketball Prospectus article inspired me to rank and rate NBA teams using some of the more recent tools I’ve added to my toolbox. You can find these power rankings at the new NBA Power Rankings section of the website, and these rankings will be updated daily.
- Statistical Scouting Reports: After initially releasing 2008-09 offensive statistical scouting reports, I’ve added 2009-10 data to go along with 2007-08 and 2006-07 data. One word of caution about the 2009-10 data: if you see range values that have the same numbers on the left and right (i.e. 50%-50%), then this means the models do not detect a difference between players at that position for the given statistic. This means we don’t have enough data yet, so don’t go too crazy when you see these kinds of numbers for some player statistics. I’ve also added some defensive measures to these reports. I’m not satisfied with the current groupings of some of the stats, so if you have any suggestions please voice them.
- Play-by-Play Data: I’ve created an archive for last year’s 2008-09 play-by-play data, and you can now download play-by-play data from the 2009-10 regular season. The 2009-10 play-by-play data should be updating on a daily basis. Please let me know if you find any errors, and enjoy!
I hope you find these updates useful!
