Ready to Slide Rule

A deep dive into NBA statistics

Team Offense Bar Charts

I’ve produced a series of bar charts which illustrate the percentage of a team’s possessions a player accounted for, vs the percentage of a team’s points the player produced. The formulas for possessions and points produced are detailed in Dean Oliver’s basketball on paper book (link in sidebar)

A high blue bar with a low red bar indicates a player who is generating a lot of points given his touches, and conversely a low blue bar with a high red bar indicates a player that is generating relatively few points given his utilization.
