This is a very cool feature that I think too often gets lost in the crowd of items on the Full Court page: the Player Comparison Finder. We all love to compare players and their stats, so this tool should naturally be right up everyone's alley... It allows you to select up to four players and compare their numbers either in a particular season (say, Cousy vs. Nash at age 30), or cumulatively through a certain season (KG vs. Dwight Howard through age 23, for instance). It also breaks down the statistical comparison in each of four ways that should be familiar to you already from our player and team pages: Totals, Per Game, Per 36 Minutes, and, of course, Advanced Stats. Now, as we all know, when making comparisons between players across widely disparate eras, context needs to be accounted for. But even so, I think it's still fun and useful to be able to isolate the players you want to compare and look at their numbers side-by-side on the same page.
