Layups: Four Factors Adjusted +/-

Posted by Neil Paine on November 28, 2009

Here's a really interesting development on the adjusted plus-minus front... Hoopnumbers, whose work with APM has been noted by us in the past, now has 3-year weighted APM scores for 2008-09 that break down every player's impact in each of Dean Oliver's Four Factors on both offense and defense. So now you can finally see that, for instance, Steve Nash increased his team's effective FG% more than any other player, or that Trevor Ariza was the best at increasing the opponent's rate of turnovers per possession. Very cool stuff.

    Great Stuff. Probably a fair bit of noise, but Dwight Howard's number are not that impressive on D.
