Synergy sports is on twitter now
Okay, I'd like to see the stats-savvy community chime in on this one:
Another site that needs to be added to the front page: http://stats-for-the-nba.appspot.com/
RAPM seems to be the "hot" thing in the APBR community right now. Neil has used it on basketball-reference for some of his playoff previews. The error values are much better then adjusted +/-. Unfortunately, it involves some HEAVY math (stuff you'd learn at the graduate level). But J.E. has done some very interesting research and has player pairs rankings, as well as coaches.
Actually, speaking of Adjusted +/-, I realized there is no link to the method behind adjusted +/-. So if someone wants to add that, here's the article describing the method:
Here's an article that describes how it's split into offense and defense (it's at the bottom of the 82games.com article):
Another site that should be added is Count the Basket Unfortunately, there are no more active blog posts since the guy who ran the site ended up with a job in the NBA (which should probably tell us that his research was pretty useful).

I almost never visit NBA.com anymore but I just thought I'd check them out today and I noticed that they actually done a pretty good job. Solid detail as well. I think NBA.com's stats page can be added here now.
Uh, what happened to 82games.com? The site hasn't worked in days
I hope its only temporary..

If you want to search through it just use the wayback machine:
"It’s absolutely ludicrous” (to judge players based on whether they’ve won a title.)
Just found this thread and thanx so much. (I got lost in these two: NBA general and Lakers').
One question, am I too old to grasp advanced stats? hehe
What would you all recommend would be an approximate order of my start to studying advanced stats?

Here's a question. At basketball-reference, they have a list of MVP shares; but I have never been able to find his/their explanation for what the formula for this is; AND is there a list somewhere of the MVP year-by-year "voting" (so you see everybody who got "shares")?
