Friday Press Clippings: The biggest fallacy in sports is that the better team will win

Friday Press Clippings:
The biggest fallacy in sports is that the better team will win, so ...
Why Better Teams Lose ?

"... Matt once told me that “the biggest fallacy in sports is that the better team will win.” This is an interesting statement, especially in light of the unexpected results from the early rounds of the NBA Playoffs this year. Matt’s statement can be understood in two ways. ..."

"... The second way to look at Matt’s fallacy is actually more interesting. Variance tells us that the better team won’t always win, but the truth is we don’t know who the better team actually is. To explain this point, it will be helpful to use the playoffs as a vehicle. ..."

"... This means that win-loss records and point differentials are imperfect exogenous indicators of who the better of two teams is. The very nature of being “better” than another team is relative; it depends entirely on the comparison between the two teams.

Knowing how well each team played against the rest of the league tells us something, and is often a good indicator of who will win between two teams, but it’s not perfect, and nuance escapes it. ..."

"... We could look at how two teams played against each other during the regular season, but the sample size is just too small to say anything meaningful.

The 4 games two conference rivals play during the regular season do not give us enough data to say meaningful things about which team is superior, and we have even less data on individual player matchups.

After factoring in other variables like injuries, fatigue, and varying degrees of effort we aren’t left with much information to make meaningful predictions about a playoff matchup. ..."

"... As Justin has pointed out, we need better ways to manipulate smaller data sets; until we can draw meaningful conclusions from fewer observations we are handicapped in predictive analysis. That doesn’t mean we won’t get there, and this is certainly something we’ll be working on in the future. ..."

"... Each possession has a variance of about 1 point, so if we assume possessions are independent events (not a great assumption and certainly something you should check in the data, but ok as a starting point) the point differential on 800 possessions has a variance of 800 or a standard deviation of about 28.

This overly simple analysis seems to imply that the Mavs may be just as good as the Lakers (even in this particular matchup), but just ran two standard deviations over expectation over the course of the series. Such a 2 sigma event is rare, but might still happen almost 2.5 percent of the time (If they really are equally good teams the Lakers might have beat the Mavs by 56 points over the course of 4 games 2.5 percent of the time). ..."

Gregg Marshall accepted the Wichita State University coaching position on April 14, 2007, having previously coached at Winthrop University for nine seasons.

In his nine seasons as head coach at Winthrop, Marshall led the Eagles to seven NCAA tournament appearances and transformed a previously undistinguished program into a mid-major powerhouse.

In his first season at Winthrop, the 1998-99 season, he compiled a record of 19-8, 9-1 in Big South Conference play, giving the Eagles their first
regular season Big South title.

They went on to win the Big South Conference Tournament, earning the Eagles their first ever bid to the NCAA Tournament. As a 16 seed,
the team lost to the #1 seed Auburn Tigers in the first round, 80-41 (to be continued on 'About the Author')

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions:
Ball against the Backboard... Can this player begin a dribble.... ?

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
"... A player has not yet dribbled, throws the ball against a backboard and catches it again before the ball has touched another player. ...
Can this player begin a dribble.... ? ..."

Fundamentals of the Basketball Rule=
If a player deliberately throws the ball against a backboard ( not attempting a legitimate shot for a goal ), this is considered the same as if that player has bounced the ball on the floor. If the player then touches the ball again before it has touched ( or been touched by ) another player, this is considered to be the same as a dribble.

Basketball Game Rule=
After catching the ball ( ball comes to rest in his hands ) the player in this case may shoot or pass but may not begin a new dribble.

eBA Basketball Statistical Registration=
In case the player in this case makes a new dribble has committed a violation and we register an unforced turnover.

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

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About the Blocked Shot ~ Blocked or Altered Shot ?

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
The blocked shots are an area of doubts for the statisticians, how this actions are registered?

The blocked shots as the fact of whether a pass or shot is being attempted, are areas of difficulty for the statistician.

The blocked shots are considered as attempts in the eBA Statistics Tracking only if the offensive player was in the act of shooting before the ball was blocked.

If there is a doubt as to whether the player was intending to shoot, the eBA Statistics Tracking shall be that he was not intending a shot.

By definition (see our Global Basketball Encyclopedia ) a blocked shot occurs when a defensive player successfully and legally deflects a shot from an offensive player by touching and rejecting the ball on its way to the basket, and before it has reached its highest point, in order to prevent from a field goal.

In order to be a legal action, the block must occur while the shot is traveling upward. It is heading downward when the defender hits it, it is ruled a goaltending and counts as a made basket.

Blocked Shot ~ Blocked or Altered Shot ?
Photograph: Ben Wolozyn Photography

We have an altered shot when a blocker changes the shooter shot causing the shooter to miss the basket.

In our eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System we register a Block Shot when the ball doesn't leave the shooter's hand: Turnover for the player in possession, Steal for the blocker; and we have an Altered Shot when the ball leaves the shooter's hand, so we register a missed shot for the shooter & a steal - block for the defender.

Friday Press Clippings: Kevin Pelton Blows Minds ~ Age Adjusted Defensive Efficiency

Friday Press Clippings:
Kevin Pelton Blows Minds: Age Adjusted Defensive Efficiency

Basketball Statistician's Friday Press Clippings
From Blazer's Edge
By Benjamin Golliver
Download source here: ' Kevin Pelton Blows Minds: Age Adjusted Defensive Efficiency ' by Benjamin Golliver




"... Recently when asked to explain our defensive issues I came up with the following areas for improvement.

Weakside defense.
Handling of pick and rolls.
Recognizing and executing rotations.
Point guard defense.
Lateral defensive speed.
Bad fouls.
Communication.
Closing out on shooters.

So, yeah, Pretty much everything. Likewise, when asked the root of the problems listed above, I wrote. ..."

"... I asked him: "You know how it's easy to subjectively look at young players and notice their defensive faults? And how it's equally easy to look at older players and call them savvy veterans? This seems way too simple. And you know how some people argue that experience is an explanation for a young team's defensive struggles and others mock that argument as simply an excuse? Do you think you could settle that debate? It seems really subjective."

KP2 responded, "You know me. I absolutely hate subjectivity caused by an absence of statistics." He paused, rubbing his fingers on his temples, before continuing, "Numbers are very powerful. They can solve most debates." ..."

"... First things first, KP2 starts with Defensive Efficiency. What's Defensive Efficiency? It's a simple way to measure how succesful teams are at stopping their opponent from scoring.

For example, John Hollinger's Defensive Efficiency rating measures the number of points a team allows per 100 possessions. To see his ratings, you must have ESPN Insider, but to give you an idea: Boston rates 1st, Portland rates 18th and Sacramento rates 30th.

KP2's Defensive Efficiency Rating is very similar to Hollinger's only he adjusts the formula slightly to account for team offensive rebounds. In case you're interested in the specifics, here's what he does... ..."

"... Next he calculated a weighted age for every team at the end of their season (and up to the current point for this season). He did this by taking total minutes played that season for each player on the team.

On the Blazers, a team that features so many rookies in its rotation, the weighted age is quite a bit smaller than nearly every other team from 2001-2002 to the present.

Using weighted age also eliminates any impact of having Raef Lafrentz's Expiring Contract on the inactive list. We are looking only at the weighted ages of players that are on the court producing. ..."

"... AEDR aims to answer the question: based solely on the team's age relative to the rest of the league, what should we expect their defensive efficiency to be? For the Blazers, a young team whose standard defensive efficiency is 109.8, their AEDR is 111.3.

In other words, based solely on the age of their personnel, we should expect the Blazers to play less efficient defense than they actually do.

The next step from Age Expected Defensive Efficiency Ratings is to calculate the real golden goose: Age Adjusted Defensive Efficiency (AADR).

What will AADR answer for us, according to KP2.. ..."

"... There is a demonstrable relationship between age and defensive efficiency. By one measure, we can estimate that age accounts for approximately 18.8% of defensive efficiency when surveying all teams from 2001-2002 to the present.

Age is certainly a factor that should be considered when assessing a team's defense, however coaching and personnel are most likely more critical factors. ..."

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
Basketball Steals Statistical Tracking

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
Kendall Ponder wrote in the Basketball Coaching Forum: "I decided years ago to give the steal to whoever came up with the ball.....

Both the player who tips the ball and the player who was in correct defensive position to come up with the ball made positive plays to get the ball.

I don't split steals but I do give half a steal if a player ties up the ball. It doesn't happen enough to make a difference is a players avg steals per game but it makes sense to me to do it that way....."

Rick Allison answers: "I'm sorry if this may seem offensive, but...the last post (and some other previous) is what I find intriguing and, unfortunately, widely prevalent in the world of Basketball coaching/training (actually, the world in general).

That is, people expressing less than informed opinions in a manner that suggests that they are somehow valid, without providing adequate evidence of what authority or proof supports their assertion. It is closely akin (I believe) to the coaching style of "just do it that way because I said so".

Basketball Steals Statistical Tracking
... Photograph by Doug Benc/Getty Images North America for Zimbio.com

So what are you basing your assertion on? You said, "I really don't like personal interpretation for stats", yet it seems that is what you are doing unless you have access to a different (than NCAA) official statistician' s manual that supports your assertion.

The rationale that we don't give a player a steal if he/she strips a ball and the opponent retains possession is not valid reasoning, because a steal implies a change of possession which did not occur in your rationale example.

I respect your opinion (well-intentioned) , but this is a good example of the kind of influence that fosters the spread of misinformation. We must all strive to be more informed when we make assertions in this way. Re-check your sources and rationale, if possible.

Now, sometimes we base our opinions on what we think is valid information, but later turns out to be otherwise. I've also been a victim of this... we all make mistakes... nothing wrong with that (I believe)...but how you present your assertions is important.

I know this comes off as a "holier than thou" post and some might find it offensive, but I think it is important and needs to be said in this forum. Too often, coaches think that because they have been coaching for many, many years, that assertions they make should not be questioned or that they don't ever have to check the rule book or other sources.

It never hurts to check your assumptions and assertions." Rick Allison from LoneStar Basketball Academy.

Sunday's Reflexions: Basketball Game Analyst or Scientific Analyst of the Regressions Type ?

VC Casino

Sunday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
Some Reflections about a Basketball Game Analyst or a Scientific Analyst

basketball 24 Seconds Statistics
Some reflections with the hope of contributing to the discussion about the use of statistics and statistical analysis of basketball.

When I write my expositions for the basketball statistics register courses in eBA Clinics, I always arrive to the point of explaining why some formula is not applied by the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System.

I was working principally over the past 24 years with the statistics from the South American and European basketball, based upon the formulas I used as a coach to evaluate players. But always I stayed with the doubt with reference to those mathematical-complicated machinations based formulas used on other systems...

I am a 'game analyst' but NOT a scientific analyst of the regression and coefficient type. And I think that my head coach must understand every number and number I give him, and this data's source !

Must a Basketball Head Coach understand a formula like this... ?

             __                               __
            |           (Rtg-Opp.Rtg)           |
Win% = NORM |-----------------------------------|
            |       SD(Rating Difference)       |
            |__                               __|

SD(Rating Difference) = SD(Rtg - Opp.Rtg)
                      = SQRT[Var(Rtg)+Var(Opp.Rtg)
                      -2*Cov(Rtg,Opp.Rtg)]

NORM means to take the percentile of
a mean-zero variance-one normal distribution
corresponding to a value given by that in
the brackets I faked.

Rtg:		Points scored per 100
		possessions (offensive rating)
Opp.Rtg:	Points allowed per 100
		possessions (defensive rating)
SD():		Statistical standard deviation
		of quantity in parentheses ()
Var():		Statistical variance of
		quantity in parentheses ()
Cov():		Statistical covariance of
		quantities in parentheses ()"

( and from the complicated formulas , this is one of the simplest ! )

...I am having doubts ! Perhaps we are exaggerating...

Therefore, the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System is based upon calculations of various statistical categories, weighted in terms of importance, that have been used by basketball coaches for many, many years.

Basketball Coaches not always understand the intrigues of some of the statistical specialized technical terminology, but I am completely sure that the Head Coach must understand the source of statistical data we give them !
( To be Continued ! )
