From the creator of the statistic:


I call it exclusive TS% because the stat is the true shooting percentage for everyone on the team who is NOT a certain player. For example, Chris Paul’s xTS% is the TS% of all LA Clippers not named Chris Paul.

Thoughts? Seems pretty cool to me. Click the link for more details and a graph.

1. This comparison works best if the two team-time periods share the same “team system.” This is because a similar-to-same team system means that the player most probably interacts with his teammates in ways similar enough to warrant comparison.

2. Comparing different players or different teams (even within the same time-period) with xTS% alone is fool-hardy.

These 2 rules are best illustrated by example.

a) Good comparison — LeBron’s xTS%, 2012-3 vs 13-14; no major offensive changes. He has the same or similar enough usage rate (USG%) and minutes per game (MPG)

b) Weak comparison — LeBron’s xTS%, 2013-14 vs 2010-11 (major offensive behavior and role change; see this Grantland piece.)

c) Bad comparison — LeBron’s xTS%, 2013-14 vs 2006-7 (major offensive behavior change [see the Grantland piece above] and different coaching systems/basketball clubs)

(However, if you wanted to see this comparison, despite it not being completely kosher, here it is:

LJ(MIA, 13-14)xTS% = 57.933%

LJ(CLE, 06-07)xTS% = 51.1904%. The difference is VERY real.)

d) Horrific comparison — LeBron’s xTS%, 2013-14 versus Kobe Bryant’s in 2001-2 (see both #1 and #2. Comparing two different players on two different teams within two very different team systems is a sin. Remember that Kobe’s 2001-2 involved being in the Jackson-Winters Triangle offense with Shaq.)

The creator does a good job of explaining its flaws and when it can be used to compare effectively. not the most universally useful stat but still cool.
