I am curious as to some more advanced basketball stats, along the same line as to what sabermetrics is to baseball. I keep a spreadsheet which tracks all the counting stats (points, reb, etc...) per minute played, but I would like to expand this a little bit.
My spreadsheet also calculates efg%
, but I'm not sold on those (particularly efficiency). The rudimentary calculation treats points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks as one in the same and I don't really trust it. Optimally I would like to calculate a Player Efficiency Rating
, but I don't think we have access to some of the information needed for that calculation.
Is there anything else out there which may be a happy medium between EFF and PER?
