I’ve been able to work throughout the weekend and get the stats list published for players and teams.
If any of the statistics in the stats list don’t make sense, or if you have any questions – please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know! You can view the complete lists with the links below (click on the different categories to see the complete stats list):
In addition to the box score and play by play game views, you will also be able to view the game, daily, and season totals of each statistic for a player. Each of the stats will be ranked against the other players that in that game, players for that day, or players that played that season. There are actually a few less statistics than there were on the previous site – although, they will be getting added back over time. The current count is 456 unique NBA statistics, with many of those being exclusively found at Stats by Numbers.
Some of the exclusive stats you’ll find here are shot types; not only do we track a players field goal and free throw percentage, we also track their jump shots, hook shots, layups, dunks, tip shots, and of course 3-point field goals. Tracking these stats lets us take a look at just how many of Dwight Howard’s points come from dunks, or how many layups Derrick Rose makes. We also dive deeper into some of the standard statistics categories like free throws, assists, and blocks. Want to know how many 3-point play free throws Kobe Bryant takes? How about the number of dunk assists LeBron James dishes out? We track all of those statistics and many more. Finally, we also have a set of stats that you will only find here such as jumpballs, chance points, and time of possession. Check out our stats list and let us know what you think via twitter @StatsByNumbers.
The next stage in the process of the getting the site relaunched is to get the data for the 2009-2010 season back up on the site. This involves running our game simulator again to track all of the stats and create our box score and play by play views. This may take a couple weeks, but I will post an update in about a week on the status. In other NBA news, it is now less than 50 days until the start of the 2012-2013 season!
