NBA Debut Dates Added to Player Pages

Posted by Justin Kubatko on January 18, 2011

Thanks to some great research done by John Grasso that was posted on the APBR's website, the player pages now have debut dates for almost every player in NBA history. I was able to fill in debut dates for any player who debuted during the 1986-87 season or after, but John's work was a tremendous help in filling in the rest of the blanks.

    That would be useful for figuring out the youngest players to play in the league.

    Great addition, very tasteful and practical. I love the box score linking for 1987 (?) and later debuts.
