Basketball analytics and big data
Big data and analytics have entered the world of sports and have taken it by storm. When Leicester City stunned the world by winning the Premier league football championship in 2016 they did so with the help of data analytics. In the world of basketball, the Golden State Warriors have built their franchise around advanced basketball stats. Therefore, it is clear that numbers have an important story to tell, but they rely on you to give them a voice. Players, teams, basketball scouts, agents, media, and fans will all be impacted by this new trend. Basketball statistics have gone through the following evolution:
- Statistics based on average per game
- Statistics based in average per 40 (or 48) minutes
- Statistics based on posessions
Advanced basketball stats (and analytics) focus on the third stage of the evoluation; statistics based on posessions.
This methodology allows for an objective analysis of teams and players. Some teams play up-tempo and run at every opportunity. Others like to milk the clock and “walk it up”. This influences the numbers of possessions and the opportunities to score, rebound and compile other statistics. Assessing teams on a per-possession basis provides leveled criteria to compare teams and players. For example, on offense, the advanced statistics look at how much a team would score per 100 possessions. Conversely, on defense, it looks at how many points a team would allow its opponents to score per 100 possessions. These statistics are respectively referred to as offensive and defensive rating.
Examples of advanced stats
What was the best offensive team during the 2014/2015 Euroleague season? Well, if you look at traditional or basic stats, then CSKA Moscow averaged the most points per game. They also played at the highest pace (more possessions and more shot attempts). But when applying advanced basketball stats, you will see that Real Madrid really was the most effective offensive team because they scored the most points per possession.
If we go back further in history, most people will agree that Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain were among the best rebounders of all times. However, back in those days, NBA teams played at an incredibly fast pace. Teams sometimes averaged 120 points per game. Secondly, field-goal percentages were relatively low, so there were plenty of opportunities to get rebounds. Russell and Chamberlain were the best rebounders of their era, but according to the advanced basketball statistics, the best rebounder of all time is Dennis Rodman. Why? Rodman was truly dominant at crashing the boards. During the 1994/1995 season, Rodman grabbed an astounding 29.7 % of all rebounds available while he was on the floor. Russell grabbed 22.9 % during the 1956/1957 season and Chamberlain only 20.9 % in his best season (1968/1969).

“Without big data analytics, we are blind and deaf, wandering out onto the web like deer on a freeway.” – Geoffrey Moore, author, and consultant.
All basketball data in one place
Our basketball database is also a basketball search engine and basketball research tool at the same time. Most noteworthy is the fact that we have key facts on leagues and teams and also advanced stats for players. Not only for the running season but from past seasons too.
We have special features for basketball analytics. For some time, advanced basketball stats have been used by NBA teams for “smarter” forecasting and better recruiting. The process can be complicated and expensive, often out of reach for most fans, players, and clubs. But we are changing that. We provide advanced basketball stats for every player, team, league, and level in the world.
We have written several in-depth articles about basketball metrics. One of the most popular articles is “basketball stats; analytics or video?” We also have articles on the best and worst NCAA Division 3 basketball teams and various All-Season teams based on basketball data analysis and PER leaders.
