What’s New?

28th May 2008

Let me outline some changes and additions that have been made over the last week or so:

  • A third team statistics table has been added to the league summary pages. The table has the heading "Miscellanous Statistics". Pace factor, offensive rating, and defensive rating have been moved from the team and/or opponent tables to this table. This table also has Pythagorean wins and losses; Simple Rating System ranking; the Four Factors for both offense and defense; home arena; and attendance.
  • Each team's primary home arena and attendance have been added to the various team pages.
  • Last, but certainly not least, uniform number icons were added near the top of the player pages. I used information collected by The Society for Sports Uniform Research to determine each team's primary and secondary color in each season. For every player I created an icon each time there was a change in number, team, or team colors. You can click on the number icons to see a list of every player who wore that number, and you can click on the team name to see a uniform number register for that franchise.

That's all for now. As always, thanks for supporting the site.

Uniform Numbers

21st May 2008

Today I added a couple of things related to uniform numbers:

  1. a uniform numbers script that allows you to search for all players who wore a given uniform number, and
  2. uniform number registers for each franchise.

The uniform data was a product of my own research and research published by the Association for Professional Basketball Research. There are 100+ cases where a player's uniform number is unknown (these players have a uniform number of "UNK" in the franchise uniform number registers). If you can fill in any of the blanks, please let me know.

UPDATE: I also added a uniform numbers register for each league season.
