Feature Watch: Milestone Tracker

Posted by Neil Paine on November 3, 2009

Today, we're rolling out a new feature on the site that I think you will all love: the NBA Milestone Watch. On that page, you can select one of 11 different statistical categories (Games Played, FG, 3-Pointers, FT, Offensive, Defensive, & Total Rebounds, Assists, Steals, Blocks, and Points) and track current players' progress toward certain milestones in that stat. On the left side of the page, you'll see the race for specific round numbers in each category, and on the right side there's a table showing where the top active players rank in NBA history, including how many of that stat they need to accumulate to move up in the all-time rankings.

So go ahead and take a look at it -- it's updated daily along with the rest of our stats, so you'll be able to track your favorite player's assault on history all season long.

    You seem to have Sam Cassell listed as an active player. Has he not formally retired?

    I absolutely love this idea (haven't actually got around to check it yet as I just saw the news).
    I'm a stat and milestone freak, and I've been doing the milestone thing on my computer for the past few years for my Washington Wizards and I've relied heavily on Basketball-Reference data for it. This makes it so much easier for me :)
