according to this formula which they developed using WS/48 and other things to determine the total games won throughout a player's career: http://dberri.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/untitled5.png

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1233813-top-25-most-winningest-players-of-all-time-you-may-be-surprised

Charles Barkley at #1. :D

some things to notice:

Magic johnson currently leads in wins per season throughout his career at a whooping 22.9 wins a season.
Larry Bird and Lebron are next with 20.2 and 20.3.
Dwight Howard has 20 wins a season.
Notice how Michael Jordan has only 18.9 wins a season. I would have guessed him in the top 3.

Magic and Rodman are the only ones with a WS48 over 0.4.

So in essence, the ranking in the link depends on how many games you played in your career.
But Magic is the real winning-est based on the percentages. \m/

Calculating Win Shares

I. Introduction

Stealing a page from baseball's Bill James, I decided to attempt to calculate basketball Win Shares. This article will describe how I came up with the Win Shares system for basketball. If you believe that any attempt to attribute team success to individual players is an abomination, then read no further, as this article will be of no interest to you.

II. What is a Win Share?

Bill James developed his system such that one win is equivalent to three Win Shares. My system deviates from James's system in three key ways:
1.In James's system, one win is equivalent to three Win Shares. In my system, one win is equivalent to one Win Share.
2.James made team Win Shares directly proportional to team wins. In his system, a baseball team that wins 80 games will have exactly 240 Win Shares, a baseball team that wins 90 games will have exactly 270 Win Shares, etc. In my system, a basketball team that wins 50 games will have about 50 Win Shares, give or take.
3.James did not allow for the possibility of negative Win Shares. In his system, the fewest number of Win Shares a player can have is zero. In my system, a player can have negative Win Shares. I justify this by thinking about it in the following way: a player with negative Win Shares was so poor that he essentially took away wins that his teammates had generated.

III. Crediting Offensive Win Shares to Players

A. 1977-78 to present NBA

Offensive Win Shares are credited to players based on Dean Oliver's points produced and offensive possessions. The formulas are quite detailed, so I would point you to Oliver's book Basketball on Paper for complete details. The process for crediting Offensive Win Shares is outlined below (using LeBron James of the 2008-09 Cleveland Cavaliers as an example):
1.Calculate points produced for each player. In 2008-09, James had an estimated 2345.9 points produced.
2.Calculate offensive possessions for each player. James had an estimated 1928.1 offensive possessions in 2008-09.
3.Calculate marginal offense for each player. Marginal offense is equal to (points produced) - 0.92 * (league points per possession) * (offensive possessions). For James this is 2345.9 - 0.92 * 1.083 * 1928.1 = 424.8. Note that this formula may produce a negative result for some players.
4.Calculate marginal points per win. Marginal points per win reduces to 0.32 * (league points per game) * ((team pace) / (league pace)). For the 2008-09 Cavaliers this is 0.32 * 100.0 * (88.7 / 91.7) = 30.95.
5.Credit Offensive Win Shares to the players. Offensive Win Shares are credited using the following formula: (marginal offense) / (marginal points per win). James gets credit for 424.8 / 30.95 = 13.73 Offensive Win Shares.

B. 1973-74 to 1976-77 NBA

The NBA did not track player turnovers until the 1977-78 season, and player turnovers are needed to calculate player possessions. However, the NBA did track turnovers at the team level from 1973-74 to 1976-77. Since player turnovers are the only thing holding us back from using the method outlined above, I have chosen to estimate player turnovers for this time period. Player turnovers are estimated as follows (using Kareem Abdul-Jabbar of the 1976-77 Los Angeles Lakers as an example):
1.Obtain an initial estimate of the player's turnovers. To do this use the following formula: -0.0005075172 * (minutes played) * (player age)
- 0.0873982755 * (field goals)
+ 0.0925506598 * (field goal attempts)
+ 0.1566322510 * (free throw attempts)
+ 0.0449241773 * (total rebounds)
+ 0.2321637159 * (assists)
+ 0.2040169400 * (personal fouls)
Note that if this number is less than zero, then it should be rounded up to zero. Plugging Abdul-Jabbar's statistics into the formula above we get an estimate of 280.316 turnovers.
2.Find the sum of estimated turnovers for the players on the given team. The sum for the players on the 1976-77 Lakers is 1448.057.
3.Calculate the player's share of this total. Abdul-Jabbar's share of the team total is 280.316 / 1448.057 = 0.194.
4.Multiply the team's turnovers (adjusted for team turnovers) by the player's share. As mentioned, the NBA tracked turnovers at the team level in these seasons. However, the team totals include team turnovers (i.e., turnovers that are not attributed to an individual player). Thus, we multiply the team's turnovers by 0.985, then multiply this adjusted figure by the player's share. For Abdul-Jabbar this is 1538 * 0.985 * 0.194 = 293.9, which we round up to 294.

Now that we have this estimate, the method above is used to complete the calculation of Offensive Win Shares.

C. 1946-47 to 1948-49 BAA and 1949-50 to 1972-73 NBA

Because so many statistics are missing prior to the 1973-74 season (offensive rebounds, turnovers, etc.), we will not use Oliver's points produced and offensive possessions for this time period, although the basic framework will remain the same. Here is the process for crediting Offensive Win Shares prior to the 1973-74 season (using Oscar Robertson of the 1964-65 Cincinnati Royals as an example):
1.Calculate the player's modified points. The formula is: 2.0 * (field goals) * (1 - ((team assists) / (team field goals)))
+ 1.5 * (field goals) * ((team assists) / (team field goals))
+ 1.0 * (free throws)
+ 0.5 * (assists)
Plugging Robertson's statistics into the formula above we get 2495.93 modified points.
2.Calculate the player's modified shot attempts. The formula is: 1.00 * (field goals) * (1 - ((team assists) / (team field goals)))
+ 0.50 * (field goals) * ((team assists) / (team field goals))
+ 1.00 * ((field goal attempts) - (field goals))
+ 0.44 * (free throw attempts)
+ 0.50 * (assists)
Plugging Robertson's statistics into the formula above we get 2246.85 modified shot attempts.
3.Calculate league points per shot attempt. League points per shot attempt is equal to (league points) / (league field goal attempts + 0.44 * (league free throw attempts)). For the 1964-65 NBA this is 79641 / (71882 + 0.44 * 25604) = 0.9578.
4.Calculate marginal offense for each player. Marginal offense is equal to (modified points) - 0.92 * (league points per shot attempt) * (modified shot attempts). For Robertson this is 2495.93 - 0.92 * 0.9578 * 2246.85 = 515.06. Note that this formula may produce a negative result for some players.
5.Calculate marginal points per win. Marginal points per win reduces to 0.16 * (team points per game + opponent points per game). For the 1964-65 Royals this is 0.16 * (114.2 + 111.9) = 36.176.
6.Credit Offensive Win Shares to the players. Offensive Win Shares are credited using the following formula: (marginal offense) / (marginal points per win). Robertson gets credit for 516.06 / 36.176 = 14.27 Offensive Win Shares.

IV. Crediting Defensive Win Shares to Players

A. 1973-74 to present NBA

Crediting Defensive Win Shares to players is based on Dean Oliver's Defensive Rating. Defensive Rating is an estimate of the player's points allowed per 100 defensive possessions (please see Oliver's book for further details). Here is a description of the process (once again using LeBron James in 2008-09 as an example):
1.Calculate the Defensive Rating for each player. James's Defensive Rating in 2008-09 was 99.1.
2.Calculate marginal defense for each player. Marginal defense is equal to (player minutes played / team minutes played) * (team defensive possessions) * (1.08 * (league points per possession) - ((Defensive Rating) / 100)). For James this is (3054 / 19780) * 7341 * ((1.08 * 1.083) - (99.1 / 100)) = 202.5. Note that this formula may produce a negative result for some players.
3.Calculate marginal points per win. Marginal points per win reduces to 0.32 * (league points per game) * ((team pace) / (league pace)). For the 2008-09 Cavaliers this is 0.32 * 100.0 * (88.7 / 91.7) = 30.95.
4.Credit Defensive Win Shares to the players. Defensive Win Shares are credited using the following formula: (marginal defense) / (marginal points per win). James gets credit for 202.5 / 30.95 = 6.54 Defensive Win Shares.

B. 1951-52 to 1972-73 NBA

Prior to the 1973-74 season, the NBA did not track defensive rebounds, steals, or blocks, so allocating defensive credit is a difficult task. Nevertheless, here is the process for crediting Defensive Win Shares in those seasons (once again using Robertson in 1964-65 as an example):
1.Calculate team marginal defense. Team marginal defense is equal to 1.08 * (league points per shot attempt) * (team field goal attempts + 0.44 * (team free throw attempts)) - (opponent points). If you're wondering why we're using team shot attempts as opposed to opponent shot attempts, the answer is (a) we don't have opponent shot attempts prior to 1970-71 and (b) the system works better using team shot attempts. For the 1964-65 Royals we get 1.08 * 0.9578 * (7797 + 0.44 * 2866) - 8952 = 417.854.
2.Calculate the player's share of the team's marginal defense. The player's share of the team's marginal defense is equal to 0.25 * ((minutes played) / (team minutes played)) + 0.5 * ((total rebounds) / (team total rebounds)) + 0.25 * ((assists) / (team assists)). How did I get those weights? Modern Defensive Win Shares are most dependent on minutes played, defensive rebounds, steals, and blocks. I regressed DWS on those stats and then found the relative importance of each regressor (approximately 25% for minutes played, 35% for defensive rebounds, 25% for steals, and 15% for blocks). Since those defensive statistics are not available for past seasons, I used total rebounds as a proxy for defensive rebounds and blocks; and assists as a proxy for steals. A couple more notes: (1) prior to the 1964-65 season, team minutes played were not an official statistic, so for those seasons estimate the team's minutes played using the formula 5 * 48 * (team games) + 125; and (2) prior to the 1967-68 season, team total rebounds included team rebounds, so to account for this multiply the team total by 0.875. Getting back to our example, Robertson's share on the 1964-65 Royals is equal to 0.25 * (3421 / 19325) + 0.5 * (674 / (0.875 * 5387)) + 0.25 * (861 / 1843) = 0.2325.
3.Calculate marginal defense for each player. Marginal defense is equal to (team marginal defense) * (player share). For Robertson this is 417.854 * 0.2325 = 97.151. Note that this formula may produce a negative result for some players.
4.Calculate marginal points per win. Marginal points per win reduces to 0.16 * (team points per game + opponent points per game). For the 1964-65 Royals this is 0.16 * (114.2 + 111.9) = 36.176.
5.Credit defensive Win Shares to the players. Defensive Win Shares are credited using the following formula: (marginal defense) / (marginal points per win). Robertson gets credit for 97.151 / 36.176 = 2.69 Defensive Win Shares.

B. 1950-51 NBA

Prior to the 1951-52 season, the NBA did not track minutes played, so allocating defensive credit is an even more difficult task. Nevertheless, here is the process for crediting Defensive Win Shares in the 1950-51 season (using George Mikan as an example):
1.Calculate team marginal defense. Team marginal defense is equal to 1.08 * (league points per shot attempt) * (team field goal attempts + 0.44 * (team free throw attempts)) - (opponent points). If you're wondering why we're using team shot attempts as opposed to opponent shot attempts, the answer is (a) we don't have opponent shot attempts prior to 1970-71 and (b) the system works better using team shot attempts. For the 1950-51 Minneapolis Lakers we get 1.08 * 0.8553 * (5590 + 0.44 * 1989) - 5264 = 708.023.
2.Calculate the player's share of the team's marginal defense. The player's share of the team's marginal defense is equal to 0.25 * ((field goal attempts) / (team field goal attempts)) + 0.5 * ((total rebounds) / (team total rebounds)) + 0.25 * ((assists) / (team assists)). How did I get those weights? Modern Defensive Win Shares are most dependent on minutes played, defensive rebounds, steals, and blocks. I regressed DWS on those stats and then found the relative importance of each regressor (approximately 25% for minutes played, 35% for defensive rebounds, 25% for steals, and 15% for blocks). Since those defensive statistics are not available for past seasons, I used field goal attempts as a proxy for minutes played; total rebounds as a proxy for defensive rebounds and blocks; and assists as a proxy for steals. Note that prior to the 1967-68 season, team total rebounds included team rebounds, so to account for this multiply the team total by 0.875. Getting back to our example, Mikan's share on the 1950-51 Lakers is equal to 0.25 * (1584 / 5590) + 0.5 * (958 / (0.875 * 3049)) + 0.25 * (208 / 1408) = 0.2873.
3.Calculate marginal defense for each player. Marginal defense is equal to (team marginal defense) * (player share). For Mikan this is 708.023 * 0.2873 = 203.415. Note that this formula may produce a negative result for some players.
4.Calculate marginal points per win. Marginal points per win reduces to 0.16 * (team points per game + opponent points per game). For the 1950-61 Lakers this is 0.16 * (82.8 + 77.4) = 25.632.
5.Credit defensive Win Shares to the players. Defensive Win Shares are credited using the following formula: (marginal defense) / (marginal points per win). Mikan gets credit for 203.415 / 25.632 = 7.94 Defensive Win Shares.

B. 1946-47 to 1948-49 BAA and 1949-50 NBA

Prior to the 1950-51 season, the NBA did not track total rebounds, so allocating defensive credit is an almost impossible task. Nevertheless, here is the process for crediting Defensive Win Shares in those seasons (using Bob Feerick in 1946-47 as an example):
1.Calculate team marginal defense. Team marginal defense is equal to 1.08 * (league points per shot attempt) * (team field goal attempts + 0.44 * (team free throw attempts)) - (opponent points). If you're wondering why we're using team shot attempts as opposed to opponent shot attempts, the answer is (a) we don't have opponent shot attempts prior to 1970-71 and (b) the system works better using team shot attempts. For the 1946-47 Washington Capitols we get 1.08 * 0.6528 * (5794 + 0.44 * 1391) - 3836 = 680.412.
2.Calculate the player's share of the team's marginal defense. The player's share of the team's marginal defense is equal to 0.25 * ((field goal attempts) / (team field goal attempts)) + 0.5 * ((free throw attempts) / (team free throw attempts)) + 0.25 * ((assists) / (team assists)). How did I get those weights? Modern Defensive Win Shares are most dependent on minutes played, defensive rebounds, steals, and blocks. I regressed DWS on those stats and then found the relative importance of each regressor (approximately 25% for minutes played, 35% for defensive rebounds, 25% for steals, and 15% for blocks). Since those defensive statistics are not available for past seasons, I used field goal attempts as a proxy for minutes played; personal fouls as a proxy for defensive rebounds and blocks; and assists as a proxy for steals. Getting back to our example, Feerick's share on the 1946-47 Capitols is equal to 0.25 * (908 / 5794) + 0.5 * (142 / 1144) + 0.25 * (69 / 378) = 0.1469.
3.Calculate marginal defense for each player. Marginal defense is equal to (team marginal defense) * (player share). For Feerick this is 680.412 * 0.1469 = 99.953. Note that this formula may produce a negative result for some players.
4.Calculate marginal points per win. Marginal points per win reduces to 0.16 * (team points per game + opponent points per game). For the 1950-61 Lakers this is 0.16 * (73.8 + 63.9) = 22.032.
5.Credit defensive Win Shares to the players. Defensive Win Shares are credited using the following formula: (marginal defense) / (marginal points per win). Feerick gets credit for 99.953 / 22.032 = 4.54 Defensive Win Shares.

V. Putting It All Together

The final step of the process is to add Offensive Win Shares to Defensive Win Shares. In our examples, LeBron James total in 2008-09 is 13.73 + 6.54 = 20.27 Win Shares and Oscar Robertson total in 1964-65 is 14.27 + 2.69 = 16.96 Win Shares.

VI. Does This Work?

Because this metric is designed to estimate a player's contribution in terms of wins, it makes sense to see if the sum of player Win Shares for a particular team closely matches the team win total. For the 2008-09 Cavaliers the sum of player Win Shares is 67.9, while the team win total is 66, an error of 66 - 67.9 = -1.9 wins. For the 1964-65 Royals the sum of player Win Shares is 43.5, while the team total is 48, an error of 48 - 43.5 = 4.5 wins. These errors are actually close to the "typical" error; looking at all NBA teams since the 1962-63 season (the last season we have complete player splits), the average absolute error is 2.74 wins and the root mean squared error is 3.41 wins.

VII. Feedback

If you have any comments or questions about the Win Shares methodology, please send me some feedback.

Thats not WinShares, its Win Produced. Which is basically the least accepted metric among the APBR community. It overvalues rebounding and underrates shot creation, which is why you have guys like Rodman outranking a guy like Jordan.

I wouldn't put much stock into it

Jason this isn't Win Shares however its Wins Produced. A stat which its creators and believers absolutely SWEAR by. Me personally I don't like it in the very least. I've done my best to get the fullest understanding of it but for what the stat suggests (wins produced) its extremely inaccurate. Maybe someone like Chronz can change my opinion and put me to shame on it.

Edit: And as I was typing Chronz posts above me. I guess he won't be changing my opinion since he feels the same way as I do.

according to this formula which they developed using WS/48 and other things to determine the total games won throughout a player's career: http://dberri.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/untitled5.png

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1233813-top-25-most-winningest-players-of-all-time-you-may-be-surprised

Charles Barkley at #1. :D

some things to notice:

Magic johnson currently leads in wins per season throughout his career at a whooping 22.9 wins a season.
Larry Bird and Lebron are next with 20.2 and 20.3.
Dwight Howard has 20 wins a season.
Notice how Michael Jordan has only 18.9 wins a season. I would have guessed him in the top 3.

Magic and Rodman are the only ones with a WS48 over 0.4.

So in essence, the ranking in the link depends on how many games you played in your career.
But Magic is the real winning-est based on the percentages. \m/

The chart is for Wins Produced. Which is not the same thing as Win Shares, or Win Score. And it's bad form to link to an image on someone's site rather than linking to the article it came from, as you're cutting out the creator's explanation for what he was doing. (And yes, I realize the bleacherreport guy did it first. Just another reason why bleacherreport is junk)

This is the real list.

What the hell does bleacherreport know? Not to mention is a site banned here.


It would have to be by PER and Win Shares/PER 48 minutes.

http://www.basketball-reference.com/blog/?p=3175


1)
Jordan, Kareem and Wilt have led in Win Shares 9 times each and the next closest is 5.
In the playoffs Jordan led in Win Shares 7 times and Russell 5 times. Those are the top 2 in the postseason.




2)
How crazy is it that Jordan led the league in playoff WS 7 times and only even made the finals 6 times?
I know it’s fully possible to play more games than either finalist without making the finals,
but still… Actually looking at the list again I think Jordan is the only NBA player to lead the
playoff WS without making the finals. And he did it twice.



3)
Some would argue that leading in WS in the playoffs is more
valuable (since deeper in playoffs you go the more opportunity you have to generate WS) - interestingly
16 (/58) times has the reg. season WS leader
also been PS Ws leader (MJ= 6 and Kareem 2nd with 3) - But
that player has been the league MVP only 7 of those
times (MJ 3 times, 2000 Shaq, 1983 Moses Malone, 1986 Larry Bird, and Kareem in 1980) - all
of those players went on to be finals MVP, except Kareem who was injured and a young
Magic rode Kareem’s efforts to the title and finals MVP.

Bill Reynolds Says:

MJ had the highest WS/48 for two decades -- the 80s and the 90s. His figure for the 90s (.280) is the highest for any player/decade ever, and his figure for the 80s (.262) is the third highest, just behind Kareem's .266 for the 70s.

What a player!

Aren't you the guys who swears by WP? I'd like to read your rebuttal to what Chronz said if you're up to it of course.
