Yo guys, I wanted to post a thread to make sure everyone is aware of the new nba.com statistics page this year. They completely revamped it with a heavy emphasis on advanced statistics and information with SportsVU Player Tracking. A friend showed me this the other day and it's pretty sick.
Now you can easily track advanced statistics for individual players. For example - individual time of possession and touches per game, driving statistics, rim protection, true shooting percentages, rebound % per chance, clutch stats, distance traveled per game/speed, etc. It's awesome.
Example 1: Player PPG on Drives - http://stats.nba.com/playerTrackingD...&sortOrder=DES
You can see that Evan Turner is 4th in the league in PPG on drives to the basket this year. He's shooting an astouding 82% from the field on those drives! MCW is up there as well.
Example 2: Touches/Possession - http://stats.nba.com/playerTrackingT...&sortOrder=DES
You can see that Chris Paul leads the league by a wide margin in touches per game and time of possession per game. The ball is in his hands 7.5 minutes per game.
Example 3: Speed/Distance - http://stats.nba.com/playerTrackingS...rowsPerPage=25
You can see that Chandler Parsons leads the league in distance traveled per game, moving/running almost 3 miles every game and moving at an average speed of 4.3 mph.
Example 4: Passing - http://stats.nba.com/playerTrackingP...&sortOrder=DES
You can see that MCW is 9th in the league in points created off assists per game at 18. Chris Paul leads the league by a wide margin.
You can even see the stats of every lineup the Sixers have had on the floor for the entire season - http://stats.nba.com/teamLineups.html?TeamID=1610612755
Anyways, the list of advanced statistics you can now see on nba.com with easy access goes on and on. I just wanted to share this info with everyone. I think it's really cool and should make for some better forum discussion here. Check it out!
