How are stats calculated for seasons when they were not tracked?
In order to use players from seasons where not all statistics where tracked, we estimate what those numbers would have been. These estimates are based on statistical analysis which attempts to approximate those missing numbers by comparing a player to statistically similar players throughout history.
The following numbers are estimated:
turnovers prior to 1977-78 (excluding ABA players)
offensive rebounds prior to 1973-74
steals prior to 1973-74
blocks prior to 1973-74
3pt shots prior to 1979-80 (excluding ABA players)
