Reference: Sports: NBA Introduces a Revamped and Powerful Online Statistics Database
From The NY Times:
The league on Friday is unveiling a redesigned, fully sortable engine that will contain just about every statistic in N.B.A. history. And the database, at NBA.com/stats, is free to the public.
The database contains every box score of every game played since the league’s inception in 1946. It graphically displays every player’s shooting tendencies. It allows fans to analyze and compare lineup combinations. And for the first time, the N.B.A.’s site includes advanced metrics — like true shooting percentage, usage rate and defensive efficiency — that have been available on other sites for years.
Statistics can be analyzed by season, by game, by month, by home and road games, by wins and losses, or by nearly any period of time set by the user. They can be sorted on a per-minute or even per-possession basis, providing more accurate comparisons between teams and players.
