A New Advanced Statistic

4

An interesting new take on Adjusted Plus-Minus that the folks at ESPN have created: "Real plus-minus (RPM) was developed by Jeremias Engelmann, formerly of the Phoenix Suns, in consultation with Steve Ilardi, University of Kansas psychology professor and former NBA consultant. It follows the development of adjusted plus-minus (APM) by several analysts and regularized adjusted plus-minus (RAPM) by Joe Sill. RPM reflects enhancements to RAPM by Engelmann, among them the use of Bayesian priors, aging curves, score of the game and extensive out-of-sample testing to improve RPM's predictive accuracy." Unsurprisingly the Magic grade out extremely poorly overall in this new metric. Surprisingly, the order that our players score is as follows: 126. Nelson : 0.71 131. Vucevic: 0.59 132. KOQ: 0.57 194. Maxiel: -0.78 197. Glen Davis: -0.85 238. Dedmon: -1.48 245. Oladipo: -1.58 268. Harris: -1.8 330. Nicholson: -2.68 334. Price: -2.75 371(!?). Affalo: -3.48 379. Lamb: -3.74 393. Moore: -4.12 401. Harkless: -4.48
