The Basketball Personal Fouls eBA Analysis ~ Concept & Statistics

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
"... With the exception of the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System, why fouls are generally not even considered in evaluating and efficiency formulas by the other statistical systems ? ... "

There is a common misconception in the other basketball statistics analysis systems, specially at the live-game statistics, and personal fouls are generally not even considered when evaluating a player's talent.

This error or "statistics myth" raised because the false concept that it is assumed everyone commits those personal fouls and they are unavoidable.

Even, a foul means a defender has been caught out of position and has damaged his team by adding to a number that could eventually lead to free possessions via the Bonus.

But the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System have a rating of personal foul made and received and qualify each one as "good", "neutral" or "bad": the rating is explained in eBA Clinics Online and discussed in the "Statistics & Statisticians Board" in the forum, which is reserved for registered members.

Something like when 2 free throws are missed the foul actually becomes a positive for the fouling team much like a steal. If only one free throw is made it becomes a tie, nothing lost or gained. When 2 out of 3 free throws are made on the average the free throws become a negative for the fouling team.

The situation in which the personal foul was committed, plays an important role in this personal fouls eBA

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
The Basketball Team Rebounds ~ Concept & Statistics

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
What exactly comprises and means a 'team rebound' ?
In each situation a shot is taken and missed and possession may or may not change, but the rebound cannot be credited to an individual so it counts as a 'team rebound' for whichever team is awarded the ball.

A team rebound is awarded to the opponent team to the player who attempted the shot if, before the buzzer sounded, no player had gained control of the rebound.

A team rebound is awarded to the team to which the ball is awarded out of bounds or at the free throw line as a result of a missed field goal attempt or a final free throw attempt. This includes circumstances when:

- the ball goes out of bounds without any player having secured possession;

- a final free attempt from a serial misses the rim;

- the shooter commits a free throw violation in a a final free attempt from a serial;

- a loose ball foul is called immediately following a missed field goal attempt or final free throw attempt;

- a last technical foul shot missed.

A team rebound is awarded to a team that first gains possession following a jump ball when such a jump ball immediately follows a missed field goal attempt or a final free throw attempt, before any player is credited with an individual rebound.

A team rebound is awarded following a missed shot ( either field goal or last free throw ) when a live ball becomes dead due to the expiration of a period. A team rebound is credited to the opponent team to the player who attempted that shot.

About the differences between the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System and the NBA statistician's rules, for example, are developed in the eBA Encyclopedia, and we'll discuss them in a next message in the eBA Forums.

About Basketball Per-Minute Statistics and the Player Contribution Measure
and Basketball Actuality News Video in our Thursday's Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About Basketball Per-Minute Statistics and the Player Contribution Measure

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
Per-minute Statistics: "... Per minute stats are a good manner to compare players within a team, seeing how a player off the bench might fare compared to the player in front of him in the rotation, but we must be careful about players who scarcely play - Jackie Butler may have averaged 96 points per 48 in the 5 minutes he played for the Knicks last year, but very doubtful he could have achieved it.

Also, we must be careful comparing players from one team to another. For example, the season Steve Nash averaged 16.1 assists per 48 while Tony Parker averaged just 8.6 - a large part of the reason for that is the pace and style Phoenix plays gave Nash more opportunities than Parker.

Per-48 Stats is not meant to be a projection of what a player would average if he played 48 minutes per game. Keep in mind that it is simply an expression of per-minute stats.

They are expressed as per-48 so that the resulting averages are easy to deal with: "23 points per 48 minutes" is easier to read and understand than ' 0,479 points per minute '; ..."

Players are not so happy 'playing their minutes' on the bench... but here Shack O'neill, Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher plays their 'special' connection between them... inbounds and outbounds ! In this picture from Lipstick Alley presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis
Photograph: Lipstick Alley

Player Contribution Measure: "... Time played is a parameter not used with frequency in player's valuation although it is included in the box stats.

To relate player's valuation with his minutes played will give us his "efficiency", degree of cooperation into the team and with his teammates, interesting factor for the coach, the player and the game analyst.

The team's 'efficiency' per minute is obtained by dividing the valuation points, taken from the statistics, by the possible play minutes ( 40 or 48 ) and the mean of player's efficiency per minute by dividing newly by 200 or 240 ( total minutes played by 5 players on the court ).

The result compared with the player's individual ( valuation / minutes played ) and multiplied by his minutes in play will give us his efficiency or degree of cooperation over or under the team's mean.

From the moment that you can have only five players on the floor at one time, which invariably leads to some players seeing more action than others, how can you measure the contribution of players who play less and thus have fewer points, rebounds, and so on, than the starters?

The eBA Annual Basketball Statistics Clinic uses the per-minute stat to measure a player's value in terms of any other raw data stat for players with a low range of minutes played.
Say that one player scores eight points in a game, however, plays only eight minutes.

His per-minute scoring average is one point per minute, which extrapolated to a 40-minute game, would be 40 points per game.

But, actually, nobody in the NBA, WNBA or Euroleague, for that matter - averages 40 points per game. Suddenly, those eight points looks more impressive.

Although coaches find the per-minute stat helpful in evaluating players, but it has its limitations. Longer time periods belongs surely to the best players, and shorter time periods may yield misleading stats. ..."

"... Imagine a player that scores a three-pointer in his first minute of play and then sat out the rest of the game. Does anyone truly believe that he would've scored 144 points (3 x 48) in that game had he played the 48 minutes ? ..."

About the Basketball Statistics and the Offensive Rebounding Percentage
and Basketball Actuality News Video in our Thursday's Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About the Basketball Statistics and the Offensive Rebounding Percentage

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
In the circumstance that a team does miss a shot, it can prolong its possession and give itself an additional chance to score by rebounding its own misses.

Scoring this points are called "second chance points".

In the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System we use the following formula for this statistic:

Oreb% =
Offensive Rebounds / (Offensive Rebounds + Opponent's Defensive Rebounds)

In this way, we only measure how many rebounds our team catches based on what's obtainable. We use this method instead of another, by example, "team offensive rebounds per game" which will give us "a good offensive rebound team" when a team that shoots 30% and probably catches a lot of offensive rebounds, whether they're a good rebounding team or not.

Applying Oreb%, we're looking at a ratio of how many rebounds our team grabbed compared to how many were accessible.

Rebound rate (RbR)=
(Total Rebs * (Team MP / 5)) / (MP * (Team Total Rebs + Opp Ttotal Rebs)) * 100

Rebound rate is an estimate of the percentage of missed shots a player rebounded while he was on the floor.



Offensive rebounding percentage is a very utilitarian statistic in determining the worth of players. But the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System states that the number of total offensive rebounds can be useful, but it isn't as accurate as the OR% ~ offensive rebounding percentage.
To come upon a player or team's offensive rebounding percentage from the data of a box score, you must:

Specify the range of your calculations: it is possible to apply the offensive rebounding percentage to examine and note the similarities or differences of multiple teams or multiple players; nevertheless, you need to do these calculations individually. Look for and gather a series of players or a series of teams to assess the similarities and calculate each series one by one.

• Find at the box score the statistics necessary for supply the offensive rebounding percentage calculations: the number of offensive rebounds, the number of team offensive rebounds and the number of defensive rebounds by the opponent.

* Determine the sum together of the number of team offensive rebounds plus the number of defensive rebounds the opposing team grabbed. This arithmetic addition of these two numbers is known as the total number of rebounds available.

• Perform a division with the number of offensive rebounds, from the player o the team, depending on what you are calculating, by the total number of rebounds available. The quantity obtained by calculation is the OR% ~ offensive rebounding percentage for the team or player.

• Keep on these calculations as many times as necessary. Once you have done a set of these calculations, only now you have the right data to start comparing the players or teams and detect which players or teams are the best at recovering offensive rebounds.

Statistician's Digest: Basketball Registering Statistics Case Studies

Basketball Statistician's Digest:
eBA sketball Statistics Case Study: About Basketball Rebounds

Basketball Statistics eBA Case Study
Different Situations in a Basketball Rebound... Case Study

"... A missed shot comes off the rim and bounces along the floor. A1 is in position to pick up the ball, but B5 gains control. However, B5 fouls A1...

• case a) before either can touch the ball, or
• case b) as B5 is the first to touch the ball, or
• case c) after B5 is first to gain control of the ball, or
• case d) after A1 is first to touch the ball.

What is the statistical registration according to the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System in each one of the given situations, including the type of the registration ( forced or unforced TO; good or bad foul; close, long, disputed or undisputed rebound, etc.) ... ?"

Conclusion:
eBA System Statistics Fundamentals:
A player should be credited with a rebound only if the player earned that rebound before the ball was dead. What happened after the ball became dead and what would have happened if the ball had not become dead might be different.

The statistician should not attempt to decide what would have happened, but should decide only what did happen. However, if there is doubt about player control, the statistician may assume that there was control.

Sometimes there is doubt about whether a player has gained control of the ball before a certain act takes place. In such cases, the statistician should use the following guidelines.
• (a) If the statistician feels there was a possibility of player control, then the play shall be treated as though there was player control.
• (b) If the statistician feels there definitely was not a possibility of player control, then it shall be treated as though there was no player control.

Different Situations in a Basketball Rebound
Photograph from Red Box Pictures

eBA Basketball Statistical Tracking:

• In (a) the ball became dead when the foul was committed. Charge B5 with a BAD Personal Foul and credit Team A with a LONG UNDISPUTED Dead-ball Offensive Rebound.

• In (b) if B5 gained control before the foul, the official will have indicated that the foul was a player-control foul and B5 would be credited with an individual LONG DISPUTED Defensive Rebound and charged with a FORCED Turnover.



If there is no indication of player control, then credit Team A with a LONG DISPUTED Dead-ball Offensive Rebound.

• In (c) credit B5 with an individual LONG DISPUTED Def Rebound and charge him or her with an UNFORCED turnover

• In (d) if the statistician thinks that A1 possibly had control before the foul, credit A1 with an individual LONG DISPUTED Off Rebound.

If the statistician thinks that A1 definitely did not have control, credit Team A with a LONG UNDISPUTED Dead-ball Offensive Rebound.

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts: Statistics Lies, Uses and Misuses of Statistical Graphs

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
Reflections about Statistics Lies, Uses and Misuses of Statistical Graphics

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
At the last weekly meeting of the concluded eBA Basketball Statistics Tracking Annual Clinic we were discussing the topic of the statistics lies which was initiated by the exposition "Statistics & Statisticians" at eBA ONLINE.

Here is the opinion of Paul H. Kvam and Joel Sokol from their work "Teaching Statistics with Sports Examples":

Statistical lies are most frequently committed in graphical form, where the eyes can be more easily deceived by spurious trends suggested in a picture. A common abuse is manipulating scales on charts and graphs by truncating, censoring or transforming the axis values.

The next figure shows two different charts showing an increase in average attendance at NCAA Women's Soccer games between 1998 and 2003. The first (blue)chart  is the default Microsoft Excel chart; many statistical software packages, in fact, will restrict both axes to a small set of values that contains the data, which helps the reader focus on chart differences more clearly. However, it also removes the scale of difference from the picture, which has potential to mislead readers who pay little attention to the axis labels.

Average Attendance at NCAA

Average Attendance at NCAA

Two different charts showing average attendance
at NCAA Women's Soccer (season) matches

The reader's sense of proportion can be manipulated further with image-based charts, which are standard in sports publications. As an example, the figure below graphs the season wins for the New England Patriots using clip-art in place of vertical bars.

Season Wins for the New England Patriots

Regular season wins for the New England Patriots, 2002-2003

While the height of the football icons corresponds to the information the graph is meant to communicate, the size of the footballs does not; the Patriots improved 56% in wins between 2002 and 2003, but the increase in area of the football icons is over 140%.

Basketball Statistician's Digest:
The Illegal Defense in the NBA

Illegal Defense: A rather nebulous NBA rule that was called irregularly. It's designed to prevent the use of the zone defense, today legal in the NBA, it was more like a 3-second violation for the defense, in which no defender can stay in the lane for more than, well, 3 seconds. If you were on defense and were not aggressively guarding someone, you could not spend more than 3 seconds in the key at a time.

The term Illegal Defense has replaced Zone Defense in NBA usage. The rule now in place, supported by guidelines, defines approved coverage by defensive players and teams. Violations of these rules and guidelines will be noted as Illegal Defense.

Basketball Illegal Defense

a. Illegal defenses which violate the rules and accepted guidelines set forth are not permitted in the NBA.

b. When the offensive team is in its backcourt with the ball, no illegal defense violation may occur.

The illegal defense guidelines needed to be eliminated because they have become problematic. They are problematic for our fans, who don't understand the rule.

They are problematic for the officials, who admittedly have had difficulty administering the rule. And finally, the teams have used the guidelines in a way that produces isolation basketball. Teams identify areas on the floor that they can use to their advantage in a given offensive matchup and this produces a real sameness of play amongst a lot of the teams. With isolation Basketball, a lot of NBA teams began standing around.

There is little player movement, there is little ball movement, and there is a decreasing amount of fastbreak opportunities. These developments began with the misuse of the illegal defense guidelines and therefore they needed to be eliminated. By eliminating them, the desired result is to get a game that once again is based on passing, cutting, player movement, and ball movement. A game that hopefully produces fastbreak opportunities because that is the way our game should be played.

About the Over-and-Back Violation and Actuality News Video
in our Thursday's Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About the Over-and-Back Violation ~ Concept & Statistics

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
"... A question about basketball rules... what is and how must we register the Basketball Over-and-Back Violation ? ... "

The Basketball Over-and-Back Violation is a violation that occurs when the offensive team has brought the ball into the frontcourt, returns the ball into the backcourt once it has positioned itself in the front court: the offensive team crosses the half court line and then crosses back into the back court.
As soon as a player from that team touches it in the backcourt, the ball is dead and is awarded to the opposing team for a throw-in.

American Rule: "Both feet and the ball" - if you are progressing from backcourt ( which includes the centre line ), you retain back court status until all three "points" are in the front court.
( This affects the over-and-back rule as well as the 8/10 second rule. )

European Rule: In FIBA, if you are touching the front court, you have front court status, but it is also possible to be simultaneously in both courts ( which is usually a problem if you have the ball ).

Examples:
1.1) A player is dribbling the ball in his backcourt . While continuing to dribble, the player steps with one foot into the front court.
Question: Has the 8/10 second count ended?
Answer: Yes. The player has front court status.
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation ?
A: Not yet.

1.2) Continuing the above example, the player lifts the foot in the front court and resumes dribbling entirely in the back court.
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation?
A: Yes. Once a player progressing from the back court to the front court touches the front court with a foot or the ball, he must proceed into the front court with his next manoeuvre.
[Note: The action described above is legal in US rules. However, the 8/10 second count would still be proceeding.]

2.1) A player, whose team has the ball in the back court, receives a pass with one foot on either side of the centre line. He stands there for a few seconds (and does not pivot).
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation ?
A: Not yet.

2.2) Continuing the above example, the player passes the ball to a teammate in the
a.-) front court, or b.-) backcourt. The receiving player touches the ball.
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation ?
A: No in a.-), Yes in b.-).

2.3) Instead of passing, as in 2.2), the player chooses to dribble towards the front court.
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation ?
A: No. As long as the player is progressing forward, the intent of the rule is being upheld.

3.0) A player holds the ball in the front court near the centre line. He 1) puts down a dribble, with the ball touching the centre line; or 2) steps partially on the centre line with one foot; or 3) brushes the ball against a teammate who is standing in the back court.
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation ?
A: Yes in all cases. In 3.1), it is not a violation until the ball rebounds into the player's hand (or a teammate, for that matter). On a dribble, that will happen pretty quickly. In 3.2) and 3.3), the violation is called immediately. The centre line is considered to be part of the back court. [This case is the same in both FIBA and US rules.]


eBA Statistical Tracking= Finally, in all the cases, the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System register an Unforced Turnover, unless there is an opponent player influence – a close defense on the center line, by example – in this case a Forced Turnover is registered.

Points per Field Goal Attempt Formula: Concept & Application

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
Points per Field Goal Attempt Formula: Concept & Application

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
In order to measure how strictly correctly a player or team is shooting we need statistics, and if possible a creative analysis of those basketball statistics.

Statisticians most often use the field goal percentage ( FG% ) to do it, but the added bonus of the three-point shot, for instance, isn't reflected in field goal percentage, and the ability to get to the free-throw line (where the points come much easier) is ignored as well.

"Points per Shot Attempt" (PSA): It's a stat designed to reflect the basics of good shooting: getting the greatest number of points from the fewest number of attempts.

this chart provides a useful baseline that we can use to evaluate individual shooting performances. By overlaying players’ shot constellations, we can estimate the expected total number of points that an average NBA shooter would produce, based on where he took his shots; then we can compare a particular player’s actual yield against it.

This chart provides a useful baseline that we can use to evaluate individual shooting performances. By overlaying players’ shot constellations, we can estimate the expected total number of points that an average NBA shooter would produce, based on where he took his shots; then we can compare a particular player’s actual yield against it. (Click on the image to continue reading the article!)

Points per shot attempt is simply points divided by shot attempts . Figuring shot attempts is like this: Add field goal attempts plus "Up to the Line" (for 2 or 3 free-throws).

In case of analysis of another team and if you can't know how many times the player or the team reached the line, use (0.4 * FTA) instead.

PSA = Points / (Up to the Line + FGA)

Last years NBA league PSA average was something around 1.039 points per shot attempt, so by averaging, by example, 1.133 points per attempt, an average team gains a full point with every ten shots.

PSA is just as handy for rating individual players as it is for teams. Occasionally a player will break into the top ten who shoots nothing but dunks, but mostly it's the long shooters who are at the top of an individual PSA list.

This formula, with another fields formulas, are integrated in the 2nd. exposition of the Basketball Statistics Registration eBA Course: "Statistics Formulas Revision", at eBA ANNUAL CLINICS ONLINE.
