i need two volunteers for a stat project (contribution value of a player) i have been working on. i have the bugs worked out it's a fairly simple stat. easy to do, everything is available at basketball ref. i just want three of us doing this so i have good cross checking of the final numbers

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
