Re: Saric rookie comparisons

Booker's top comp list is pretty light on great names but there are a few. I am more skeptical of him than many others but I sometimes lag on giving big praise to big potential guys. I accept possibility for big improvement but I am not quick to EXPECT it and it isn't here til it is. I thought it w...

Re: Saric rookie comparisons

I'm open for anything. All I did was grab the yearly advanced stats from Basketball Reference for each year since 1985. I use an average of the WS/BPM number to give me a generic wins metric for a season. Talent is a wins/48 minute rating, over the past 3 years. I think I did 5/3/1 for yearly weight...

Re: Saric rookie comparisons

I've been playing around with sim scores, along with a combo of WS and BPM. Basically everything that is on Basketball Reference. There are a lot of holes here, but for a quick pass, the "comps" for most guys look solid-ish. I'm using z-scores for a bunch of stats. No real rhyme or reason yet. Here'...

Re: Help with calculating WARP (from basketball-prospectus)

So Minor is (100*PTS) / (FGA + (.44*FTA) + TO). Major is (100*PTS) / (FGA + (.44*FTA) - OR + TO). Basically the logic is we're trying to figure out the ratio of points per possession (where an offensive rebound continues the possession) to points per play (where an offensive rebound begins a new pl...

Re: Help with calculating WARP (from basketball-prospectus)

LgOffRatMajor is just offensive rating -- same as LgOffRatMinor except offensive rebounds are subtracted out. Thanks for the quick reply. I don't know what it is, but I'm still not seeing it. I've gotten to this point any everything is essentially the same (my LgOffRatMin has been slightly differen...

Re: Help with calculating WARP (from basketball-prospectus)

OK, this is driving me insane and I can't take it anymore. I've been trying to replicate this today and I have hit a snag. I'm hoping someone can quickly help me. I can't figure out where LgOffRatMajor comes from. I've read this whole thread and KP's original article and I just can't figure it out. ...
