Are You Experienced? (Part II)

Posted by Neil Paine on August 17, 2009

Last Friday, I took an initial look at the most "experienced" teams of all-time, settling on the method of averaging the number of career NBA games & minutes played by members of a team's roster as a measure of team experience. There were several problems with this method, however -- first of all, ABA games did not count at all toward a team's experience quotient, so we ended up with a host of late-70s merger refugees appearing as the most inexperienced teams; second, we did not weight by actual minutes played during the season in question, so having an ancient player like, say, Robert Parish on the end of your bench made you look far more "experienced" even if Parish rarely saw the floor.

Today in Part II, we're going to fix these problems. First, how do we handle ABA games and minutes? How much do we discount them compared to NBA experience? Well, this is a quick-and-dirty approach, but it's as good a solution as any for a question that we really have no way of conclusively knowing the answer to... We know that four franchises were ultimately absorbed by the NBA from the ABA: the Nuggets, Nets, Spurs, and Pacers. In 1976, the final season of ABA play, those teams combined to win 204 of their 336 games, or 60.7%; the following season, the four combined to win just 152 of 328, for a winning % of 46.3. That's a 23.7% decrease in cumulative winning %, incurred by switching from ABA competition to that of the NBA, so I rounded to the nearest 1/4 and assumed across the board that ABA "experience" was worth 0.75 of its NBA equivalent. Now I admit, that's a gross oversimplification of the two leagues' actual comparative strength as time went by, but I think it does the job in a study like this.

From there, it's pretty easy to find a team's "effective experience" simply by weighting previous career GP or MP (with a 1.00 multiplier for NBA experience and a 0.75 multiplier for the ABA) by games/minutes during the season in question. When we do that, here are the teams with the most "effective experience" in games played since the league switched to an 82-game slate in 1968:

  1. Jason J Says:

    The most experienced by games played has some pretty strong teams on it once again, a few finalists and conference finalists, and the Bulls make the list as the only champs again (though it's the '98 team instead of the '97 team here).

  2. MCT Says:

    A quick obeservation: a lot of the teams on the "least experienced" lists are expansion teams in their first few years in the league.

  3. Neil Paine Says:

    Yeah, I noticed that too. My guess is that it's because the only types of players available to expansion teams early in their existence are either rookies/young players or, since (generally speaking) inexperience is negatively correlated with playing ability, mediocre players that were made available via the expansion draft. Because of things like the Larry Bird exception and a desire to win championships, good veterans rarely end up on expansion teams -- everyone on the roster is either young or a veteran who has something wrong with them.

  4. Gerrit Says:

    A whole lotta Karl Malone on that list.

  5. BIG Iverson Says:

    Wow, this blog puzzled me! But it's really great!

  6. merl Says:

    Karl Malone and Gary Payton too.
