Layups: Defensive Fingerprints

Posted by Neil Paine on February 23, 2009

Ken Pomeroy of added an incredibly cool new feature to his team pages this past week -- he calls it "defensive fingerprint", and it's an attempt to identify the primary defensive style (man-to-man or zone) of a team simply by looking at the team's tempo-free stat tendencies. It's in the early stages of development and it's nowhere near perfect, but it's another very interesting attempt to combine traditional scouting information with statistical data.
