The Sports Report

A Statistical Take on Sports and Politics

Basketball Statistics

The following statistics are ones that I often report in my articles about the NBA or about NCAA Basketball. Many of these statistics are borrowed from other Web sites, and I have those linked in the following titles. Coming up soon, I will detail what some of the base averages are for these different statistics, to give the reader a basic sense of what is average, incredible or sub-par in these different categories:

ESPN Rating per 48 minutes:

(PTS + REB + (1.4 * AST) + STL + (1.4 * BLK) – (0.7 * TO) + FGM + (0.5 * TPM) – 0.8 * (FGA-FGM) + (0.25 * FTM) – 0.8 * (FTA-FTM)) / (MP * 48)

Jacob Rating per 48 minutes:

(PTS + REB + (1.4 * AST) + STL + (1.4 * BLK) – (0.7 * TO) + FGM + (0.5 * TPM) – 0.8 * (FGA-FGM) + (0.25 * FTM) – 0.8 * (FTA-FTM) – (0.4 * PF)) / (MP * 48)
