How do we evaluate players?
The evaluation process isolates every player’s performance on every single play and then contextualizes that performance based off of opponent, time/score, historical data, and other factors.
We are measuring impact not talent. We evaluate impact both quantitively (steals, blocks, charges, scoring, dribble-to-pass ratio, etc.) and qualitatively (shot quality, passing quality, offensive rebounding impact, on-ball defense quality, decision-making quality, etc.).
We have historical records for tens of thousands of players over the last 5+ seasons.
How do we create our player comparisons?
We have historical records over the last 5+ years each with thousands of players. These records allow us to accurately identify the most similar players in terms of their performance impact and style of play.
What is ShotQ?
Sometimes good shots are missed. Sometimes bad shots are made. A team’s field goal percentage only tells half the story – the percentage of shots that are made. It’s time we start quantifying the shot itself and not just the result.
We developed a proprietary and innovative metric called ShotQ that will quantify team’s offensive and defensive shot quality. ShotQ evaluates the type of shot, defender distance, location of the shot, and more to measure the quality of the shot.
It incorporates many of the same variables we use when we yell out “Why?!” or “NO!” after we see our player attempt a bad shot.
Why does ShotQ matter?
We conducted an extensive study to determine the biggest factor in wins. The analysis showed that 82% of games are won by the team that shot the higher eFG% in the game.
The problem with eFG% is that the metric only captures the shot results. In games, it is better to measure shooting based off shot quality than it is eFG%. Shot quality is process-based, while eFG% is results-based.
