Friday Press Clippings: Do players "steal" rebounding opportunities ?

Friday Press Clippings:
Do players "steal" rebounding opportunities from teammates ?

"... In my previous post on rebounding, I promised to review some of the evidence supporting the "diminishing returns" hypothesis.

That's the theory that, in general, a player's individual rebound totals are not mostly a product of his own ability to snare rebounds, but, rather, predominantly because of his positioning on the court, or the role he is assigned on his team. ..."

"... Every extra rebound by the center results in 0.61 fewer rebounds by
teammates. ... "

"... That means that only 39 percent of center rebounds are "real", in the sense that the other team would have got them if not for the center's efforts.

If a center is (say) 20 rebounds above average for the season, then, on average, you should estimate that 12 of those rebounds would have been grabbed by a teammate anyway. ..."

Even the longest misses produce an average rebound distance that is only eight feet from the rim — not exactly a remote location. Part of this has to do with physics, part has to do with player spacing. Long-range shots generally occur when players are more spread out and there are fewer potential rebounders near the basket. <br />

"... The variance in team rebounds per game is LESS than the variance in rebounds per game by the center
alone ! ..."

"... Every additional rebound taken by the point guard reduces the rest of the team's rebound total by ... almost exactly one rebound: .96, to be exact. ..."

"... Taken at face value, that means that 24 out of 25 times, when a point guard gets a rebound, it's because the rest of the team deliberately leaves it for him! ..."

Basketball Statistics Questions: Basketball Full Season Per Minute Statistics don't Round

Basketball Tracking Stats Referred Questions:
Basketball Full Season Per Minute Statistics don't Round

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
"... When a player is on the floor for 3 minutes and 31 seconds, the official boxscore enumerate it as 4 minutes.

How the eBA Basketball Statistics System Book tracks the influential impact on the per-minute numbers when multiplied throughout the whole season have those lost 30 seconds ? ..."

First of all, there is an open topic about "Per Minute Statistics" in the Statistics & Statisticians Board where I'll continue the discussion. But after going there, here you have some thoughts about:

One or some short term data analysis will be determined by random chance. We have studied this issue at the eBA Clinics Chats, and reached to the conclusion that the full season stats don't round game by game, so it's a reasonably exact parameter.

The median for Kobe's shots per minute this season is 0.7. (As always, we're factoring in free throw trips.) In fact, when Kobe shoots more 0.7 shots per minute in a game, the Lakers' offense is slightly better than when he shoots less than 0.7 shots per minute.<br />
There's more data to this effect. It's true that in the aggregate the Lakers have performed better offensively when Kobe is not on the floor, by about five points per 100 possessions. But raw on-off data is extremely noisy, as it doesn't at all account for the other nine players on the court or those replacing the players in question. That's why analytic types much prefer adjusted plus-minus. The best current public iteration for that is ESPN's Real Plus-Minus. In that measure, Kobe rates at +1.47 on offense. <br />
In this Image from NIKE Talk presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis .

It is assumed that throughout a full season there are as many round-downs as round-ups which would take out significant error or bias by amount of time played but there might be a bit of noise in outlying player game logs.

The discussion continues in the topic: "Per Minute Statistics" in the Statistics & Statisticians Board.

All the terms in this answer are explained widely at The eBA Basketball System Book and in eBA Clinic ONLINE.

Monday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics: Some reflections about the 24 Seconds Statistics

Monday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
Some Reflections about the Basketball 24 Seconds Statistics

basketball 24 Seconds Statistics
The eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System registers the shooting by type, zone, number of players in the play, etc. and also records the second of the shooting possession: into the 4 - 8 - 16 - 20 or 24 seconds.

The complete topic with the analysis is uploaded at the courses of the eBA ONLINE Clinics, but this synthesis clarifies the question:

On average the shots are made between the 11 and 12 seconds of the shooting clock.

A 7.6% are taken between the seconds 1 and 8/9.
In the first half of the clock: first 12 seconds, a 57.1% of the shots are taken.

Reflections about the Basketball 24 Seconds Statistics Analysis
Image: by Kirk Goldsberry from Grantland



In the last quarter of the clock: last 6 seconds, only a 15.1% of the shots were registered; but, nevertheless, the best field percentage is obtained in the last three seconds of the 24 seconds shooting clock.

This research is based on more than 1000 Euroleague games, analyzed from 1988 ( when it was called European Cup ), and is presented in the eBA Annual Clinics.

Only one team advanced to the Euroleague Final Four this season without the benefit of home-court advantage when the playoffs started. That same team is the only one that survived after losing Game 1. Both accomplishments are highly unusual, but that team, Olympiacos Piraeus, had a secret weapon in forward Georgios Printezis, who is Euroleague Basketball's choice as MVP for April. Printezis, of course, has made it a habit in his career to come up big in the most important moments. In this photograph from EuroLeague presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis .

Euroleague Basketball PLAYOFFS: Top 5 Plays

Take a look at the best five plays of the Euroleague Playoffs!

It is a very special set play of Olympiacos Piraeus, which is very good because of the ball movement. At the end of the set play, the player 2, Spanoulis, decides how to finish it.

A ~ From a diamond set, 2 receives the ball from 1, Spanoulis, after being cross screened by 4. Then 3 cuts to the right corner, 1 to the right wing and 4, MVP Georgios Printezis, ups to the top of the key. Then 5 sets a ballscreen for 2.

B ~ 5 sets a ballscreen for 2, who can attack the rim, can hit 5 or can hit 4, MVP Georgios Printezis. If 4, MVP Georgios Printezis, receives the ball then dribbles towards 1 for a hand-off pass.

C ~ Finally 3 cuts to the left corner and 1 attacks the rim. 4, MVP Georgios Printezis, can roll to the rim or can pop at the wing. 1, Spanoulis, decides between five different options to pass the ball.

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
... Two players, same league, both of them averaged same number pf points per game:

Player 1 had an eff. fg% of .511, while Player 2 had a lower rating of .478.
True Shooting %: Player 1 shot .549, while Player 2 had a higher rating of .559 ...

In such a conditions who was the more efficient scorer according to the The eBA Basketball System Book ? ...

eFG% quantifies scoring efficiency from the field and is the primary factor for three pointers, whilst TS% quantifies scoring efficiency including everything and is the primary factor for both three pointers and free throws.

As a scorer, Parker is one of the best midrange shooters in the NBA, and his abilities to make both elbow jumpers and perhaps the prettiest floater in the league are his core competencies. Parker rarely takes 3s, but when he does, he prefers them in the corners. <br />

Monday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics: Basketball FG Percentages values going down ?

Monday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
Are the Basketball Field Goal Percentages values going down ?

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
Are the FG% values going down ? From the values we studied at the current eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis Annual Clinic, corresponding to the archives since 1988, we can see that the FG% values are declining...

Is this due to better defenses, or to players entering the league lacking shooting fundamentals ?

Maybe this had something to do with the declining efficiency and productivity ?

1 - It's a combination of both reasons mentioned: defenses are better, or at least more complex than they used to be, and teams are more willing to sacrifice shooting from some players if those players are excellent defenders. But also more and more players are entering the professional leagues lacking the fundamentals of shooting.

Are the Basketball Field Goal Percentages values going down ?
Image: by Kirk Goldsberry from Grantland

2 - Overall FG% is declining primarily because more 3 pointers have been taken annually: despite more attempts the overall 3 points FG% has increased.

3 - But looking at Scoring FG% ( combining 2 pointers, 3 pointers, and Free Throws ) rather than overall FG%, the European leagues has had similar Scoring FG%s of 50.3% (in 98-99) to 53.4% (in 84-85), as it was years ago.

4 - New rule changes like hand checking, had opened up offenses and also the players take more high-risk, high-reward shots, so we can't say that shooting itself is worse.

Before the Top 16, no ALBA Berlin player had been MVP of the Week in the Euroleague for more than six years. Now, a second ALBA guard in just five weeks has earned the honor as Alex Renfroe became the Top 16 Round 13 MVP by rallying his team past Panathinaikos 66-68 on Thursday in Athens. It was a historic win, the first by a German team on the floor of Panathinaikos, and kept ALBA in the race for what could yet become a first-time playoff ticket for that country, too. In this photograph from EuroLeague presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis .

Euroleague Basketball Top 16 Round 13: Top 10 Plays

In this excellent play of Alba Berlin we see a movement output of the shooter from Alba Berlin, the MVP Alex Renfroe or Clifford Hammonds, to shoot or pick'n'roll from the front. In this image by Àlex Asensio presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis .

Image: Pick and Roll

In this excellent play of Alba Berlin we see a movement output of the shooter from Alba Berlin, the MVP Alex Renfroe or Clifford Hammonds, to shoot or pick'n'roll from the front.

A ~ The movement starts with the rightward shift of player 1, the climb to the edge of outer 2, the MVP Alex Renfroe or Clifford Hammonds, receiving indirect and consecutive blocks from the posts 3 and 5, and subsequent receiving the ball by player 2, the MVP Alex Renfroe or Clifford Hammonds in the front for an outdoor shooting. Diagram A.

B ~ If the outside shot from 2, the MVP Alex Renfroe or Clifford Hammonds, does not occur, then 5 makes a vertical indirect blocking for the post 4, which goes to the front to play a pick'n'roll with 2. The options of 2, the MVP Alex Renfroe or Clifford Hammonds, are going through drive to the basket or shooting, then move to the 4, or play a offensive triangle between 2, 3 and 4. Diagram B

eBA Encyclopedia Statistics Terminology: NBA Basketball Team Heat Map

eBA Encyclopedia Statistics Terminology
A heat map is a graphical representation of data where the values taken by a variable in a two-dimensional map are represented as colors. A very similar presentation form is a tree map. The term is also used to mean its thematic application as a choropleth map.

There are several different kinds of heat map:

• Web heat maps have been used for displaying areas of a Web page most frequently scanned by visitors.
• Biology heat maps are typically used in molecular biology to represent the level of expression of many genes across a number of comparable samples (e.g. cells in different states, samples from different patients) as they are obtained from DNA microarrays.
• The tree map is a 2D hierarchical partitioning of data that visually resembles a heat map.
• A mosaic plot is a tiled heat map for representing a two-way or higher-way table of data. As with treemaps, the rectangular regions in a mosaic plot are hierarchically organized. The means that the regions are rectangles instead of squares. Friendly (1994) surveys the history and usage of this graph.

basketball statistics Heat Map
Image: Information Aesthetics


Each NBA Basketball Team Heat Map shows who was coaching the basketball team that year, who were the top offensive players on the team, and by how many possessions each team won or lost over a 5 year period.

The overall goal of the charts is to be able to observe how time, coaches and players create point spread trends. Win percentage paints a narrow picture of how key personnel react to being put into different game situations. Year-over-year trends may help people see why their team is gaining or losing ground to the competition.

Each color is a point range that the team won or lost by in that year. Green to red bars are wins, while blues are losses. The lower area provides team information for each year. The right bar shows the average share of games won ad lost by each 3-point range over the last 5 year in the NBA.

One of the discovered insights is how certain teams and coaches are more likely to win by 3 or fewer points than they lose by the same margin.

Read More more details about this definition and another statistical terms at our new Basketball Encyclopedia.

Statistician's Digest: A Basketball Playoffs Scoring Efficiency Equation

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
A Basketball Playoffs Scoring Efficiency Equation

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
" Does the eBA System have a specific method or basic efficiency equation in terms of scoring or Points per Possession for the Playoffs time ? "

Which is the real question:

- we are trying to compare the playoffs numbers with the regular
. season numbers ...

- we are trying to analyze the effect of playing the same opponent for many consecutive games ... or

- we are trying to analyze points per possession ?

After the regular season, playoffs time, the fatigue have an effect upon shooting more than any other stat and effective shooting % moves downward and lower.

The best players on both teams play more minutes and marginal players disappear in essence either in effectiveness or actual court appearance.

A determined playoffs series may have differences with the regular season or from series to series, no not differences at all.

Two determined high-scoring teams may give an enlarged production at all the statistics categories, but the possession value does not have direct relation with any "playoffs conversion" rate.

It is possible to apply during the playoff the following experimental formula:


Shooting Efficiency= Total Points / { FGA + ( ( FTA + Bonus FTA ) / 2 }

Basketball Playoffs has become an insatiable American passion. Whether in a back yard, a blacktop urban playground, or an indoor stadium, people love playing and watching this game.
Photograph: Sports Score Live

Rates or efficiencies should be calculated for each series, and weighted differently as the playoff round progress.

An equation must be based on the players who are analyzed against the opposition and are only considered in the context of that one series.

Resuming this topic and according to eBA archives of 10 past years in the playoffs series, for the finals players tend to do worse than their regular season production/efficiency and rates tend to be around 91.4 % of what they were in the regular season, with conversion rates of 98%, 96%, 94% and 92% which could be alternatively applied for each of 4 rounds of playoffs.

You can also study the following Non Scoring Modified Tendex from the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System:

{[ Rebounds + 1.25*Assists + 1.25*Steals + Blocks - 1.25*Turnovers
- Missed Field Goals - (Missed Free Throws /2) - Personal Fouls /2] / Minutes / Game Pace }

Prof. Roberto Azar

"... Big data might be finding all sorts of patterns, but for basketball fans, it’s a matter of what makes the ball go in the hoop.

Systems developed to track missiles are now being used to track basketballs (and their players). ..."

"... While it is standard to keep track of a basketball player’s shooting average, everyone knows that circumstance plays a huge role.

Big data can bring in conditional probability. What is the shooting average of Kevin Durant when his has a defender 3 feet away? ..."

"... The results are limited by a number of factors. The biggest is lack of data; without data on past performance, no future performance can be predicted.

Friday Video Clippings:
Miroslav Klose Reaches Fair Play Summit



Miroslav Klose Reaches Fair Play Summit

The legend of Miroslav Klose grew by leaps and bounds Wednesday. The Lazio striker used his hand to score a goal, then spectacularly convinced the referee to disallow it.

The sport of soccer is better off because of it. Klose's heroics came in the pressure cooker that is Italy's Serie A. In the fifth minute of visiting Lazio's game against Napoli, Klose redirected a corner kick into the goal with his hand. In fact, he might have been trying to move his hand out of the way when the ball struck it.

Napoli players protested furiously, while some Lazio players celebrated. What happened next will cement his good name around the world. In the mystical spirit of fair play, Klose spoke to the referee and convinced him to disallow the goal.

It earned him the respect of players on both sides (as if he didn't already have it) and he was rightfully applauded by fans at Napoli's San Paulo Stadium. Klose, 34, has bagged so many goals for club and country, he probably didn't want any cheap ones on his resume.

His glittering international career includes 64 goals for Germany, including the 14 he's scored at three FIFA World Cups -- good for second-most all time. The German marksman has also scored more than 185 goals for four clubs in two countries.

Unfortunately, that would be the high point of Lazio's game, as Klose's team suffered a 3-0 drubbing.
