simple math with a calculator... all you have to use is the plus button, the minus button and the divide button...lol

it'll just be using season averages so there's no need for game logs or that such stuff..

but it'll help if you're a stat nerd to some extent... haha

to me, it looks as if gts is doing some statistical project with a specific nba statistic he is trying to evaluate (called "contribution value of a player") where he has a lot of data points (numbers) that need to be tabulated (added up) in certain ways so that he can compile this information into something that makes sense... he is asking for help with that part of the project.

i would imagine that the hopeful net result of his analysis will be to provide a "PER" like stat that shows both tangibles and perhaps intangibles of a particular NBA player. it will be interesting to see what "inputs" gts has compiled that he feels contribute to this stat.

did i get it right for the most part?

yeah it's a very simple contribution stat, everythig but points scored is given a value and either added or taken away
