The other day I re-wrote my NBA player ranking algorithm so that it was more commiserate with my current Python skills. While my coding is significantly better, the basic idea was the same: take the available advanced analytics and determine who really are the most effective players in the NBA.
While I am more confident that this years version better identifies the best on court performances, I realize it only tells part of the story.
With all apologies to my 15 year old self, basketball is a business.
To that end, I decided to see if I could identify the players that were the best values. That is – what teams are paying vs. the return they are getting on the court.
