Re: Goldsberry's Maps

I respect a lot the Kirk’s work, nevertheless I think the real analysis come by numbers, chart shots are a trend like some season plenty of teams play pick and roll in the corner, high double screen, some special stagger or any specific situation in the game, he is a geographer and the charts are ve...

Re: Reconstructing Box Plus/Minus

I think with boxscore is fine and very helpful to those who hasn’t have play by play or another tracking system, BPM still rolling the models to make predictions so I believe is pretty good.

Re: Quick / modest proposal for paying collegians

It’s difficult because they are not getting money at the moment but they are going college for “free”, maybe plenty of these guys didn’t go college if basketball didn’t give the opportunity. In Europe and other countries is completely different, the issue here is the money are making the TVs and col...

Re: P values in your basketball stats

Maybe this is not usual, but for me make sense do some hypothesis contrasts with a group of players and another, or maybe can work to hired some players and compare to others, is pure statistics and maybe are not worthy. NBA have a lot of data per player and per team, tracking, and doing some analys...

Open debate/discussion

Hi all, I have and answer to open a debate or discussion about some metrics. For example the eFG, x player did 10 games you get the shoots and then take it into the formula and thats the accumulated eFG for that player but could be more appropriate statistically get the 10 eFG and get the average? T...

Re: Statistics Learning

Hi,

First of all you need to made a difference between "Statistics" and "machine learning" because are not the same.

There are a lot of books or resources but I could try coursera, edx or other MOOC.

Hope it helps

Kind regards

Open source is impossible to get at the moment, if you are in a high school or university NON USA or other tems with few resources this, type of analysis can be very difficul...

Re: What Programming Language Do You Use?

I did a post asking the same few weeks ago. Anyway, I use R and spreadsheet.
I think the complex here is scrapping the data from web and do the code to do automatically.
