Re: Correlation of FT attempts with other boxscore stats.

My bad, those are coefficients. Just playing 3000 minutes should get you (.0533 * 3000) 160 FTA. In that case, you're going to have a hard time using the order to determine importance because of scaling effects. Players get minutes more than anything else (maxes out over 3000), then rebounds, made ...

Re: Correlation of FT attempts with other boxscore stats.

Trying to keep events as separate as possible, I've got the season's boxscore stats and converted them to 2pt and 3pt FG makes and misses; OReb and DReb. From most positive to most negative correlation to players' FTA: _TO 2FG Stl Min DReb 3FG 2FGX 3fgX OReb Blk Ast PF .830 .525 .065 .0533 .005 -.0...

They overloaded on Dirk, and a bunch of guns opened up: Terry, Barea, Stevenson
You seemed skeptical that Dirk was not the best player on his team. So it makes sense to compare him to his teammates.

Re: 2011 Finals - Mia vs Dal

And WP is not a metric. I don't know what it is. Dirk at #5 on his team? Does anyone take this seriously? Dirk shot 41.6% (not very good) for the series, including 36.8% from three (good, not great, and below his season average). He made up for it at the line, but had two games where he didn't get ...

Re: 2011 Finals - Mia vs Dal

Does any other metric support the notion that Wade was a lot more valuable than Nowitzki? Basketball-reference has LeBron and Wade with more Win Shares than Nowitzki for the playoffs on the whole, although it's close; I don't know if they break it down by series. And Arturo's Wins Produced numbers ...

Re: Who Is More Productive

The simple one-year equation was Offensive Rapm=0.5xORTG*(Usage/100) - .46xUsage - 1.5 While these numbers are deflated by the fact that it was RAPM and 1-year RAPM at that, it would make more sense to estimate overall offensive contributions by 107.2 + estimated offensive RAPM from the above equat...

Re: Who Is More Efficient

. You asked who is scoring more efficiently; usage tells you nothing about efficiency . Sure it does (in response to the bolded part). If there were no relation between usage and efficiency, then Tyson Chandler's usage would (should) be near 35%. I was simply saying that usage the measure says noth...

Re: Who Is More Efficient

It sounds like the question is changing every post here. You asked who is scoring more efficiently; usage tells you nothing about efficiency. If all you have is offensive rating, the player with the higher offensive rating is the more efficient player.

Re: Unique Starting Lineups

Maybe you/someone could write a scraper to work on the basketball-reference.com lineup page? (e.g. http://www.basketball-reference.com/tea ... start.html). You'd only need the number from the header for the section at the bottom.
