Best website to access advanced statistics? 

Post#1 » by The Goonibomber » Wed May 23, 2012 4:40 pm

Out of curiosity, where do you guys typically go to retrieve NBA info?
For the first time in recent memory, all seems right in the NBA


UPDATE 2/24: And that's what I get for not knocking on wood

Also:

http://www.nbastuffer.com/

NBAstuffer.com has a whole host of various other data, but what's really helpful is their advanced stats glossary.

http://www.nbastuffer.com/component/option,com_glossary/Itemid,90/

And PopcornMachine.net has game flows; somewhat visual representations of box score data over the course of a game.

Recommend this gets stickied, so it can get added to as further sites emerge.

And in case anyone's in doubt, Evan Z's The City blog is a great stats site in and of itself.

Great thread. I use mostly bball-ref, 82games and hoopdata. bball-ref is great for comparisons, head-to-heads, stats from farther back in history, ect. 82games gives me a ton of on/off floor stats, along with 5 man lineups. Hoopdata is amazing for comparing shots on the floor by certain players, like which centers make the most shots or highest % from 9-15 ft away? Or other things like that.

I agree that this should be stickied, we will have some great references when this is done.

Anyone know a place with free P&R stats? Just looking for basic ones, like how often does the ball handler score, how often does the picker score, ect. Is there a free place, or would I have to get Synergy?

I don't think that's possible.. It would take a looong time.

Is there a site that allows you to "make" your own stats? Meaning, if I wanted to see a ranking of points + rebounds + assists? Or something like that. Or if I wanted to take rebounds and multiply it by TS%... Basically a site that allows me to customize.

Not exactly what you're after, but I maintain a spreadsheet of stats that you could manipulate by creating formulas pretty easily.

Here's a glossary that gives the definitions:

Was on basketballvalue, and I couldn't access lineup data for the Memphis Grizzlies. Any other sites that can offer this information?

The reason for that is that the site operator (Aaron B.) works for Memphis, so he doesn't make their data public (although you can extract it from the matchup files if you want, but it's not easy).

does anyone know if there's a measurement for the overall success of a PG-C/PF combo? as in, something to find the best PG to partner with a dominant big man?

thanks for all the great mentions so far, I use many of them. From a fantasy stats perspective, is there anything quite like basketballmonster.com?

What is the best stat to determine a player's defensive impact? I don't like stats that incorporate blocks and steals, and would prefer something focused on the offensive production of the player he is guarding. I realize this is difficult though as zone defenses and picks reduce the clarity of which player is responsible for guarding which player. I would think that, as a result, we would be regulating to looking at team defensive statistics with a player on and off the floor. However, the advanced stats on nba.com due break out an individual players performance against another individual, player, so it seems possible to individualize the impact of a single player. I just can't find anything that quantifies how well a player does at holding other players below their average FG% or EFG% for example. Any thoughts on the best means of determining individual defensive impact?

^How exactly is that calculated? And is there only RAPM stats for this year?
