205Re: Stats, again?
- Jul 26, 2001I have all the stats I can imagine, going back to 1952: raw
totals, per-game averages, and my standardized stuff. Anyone and
everyone is welcome to any or all of it, if they can get it to go
from my hard drive to theirs. I can't seem to get it to move.
Online, Doug Steele has complete stats going back to 1989, I
believe. I don't think I have ever found a glaring error in his
data. You can download a whole year of individual stats from his
site, into Excel, where you just align the columns to convert from a
text file to usable data.
Unfortunately, Doug combines the stats of players traded
midseason, so if you want to break those down, you have to go from
team to team and re-enter them.
I guess I don't actually have those players who only had a cup of
coffee. I have everyone (I think) who totalled 100 NBA minutes or
200 ABA minutes. Dates back to my 240 Meg HD and 66K processsor.
I often find it is easier to start from scratch than to insert one
or two columns and hand-enter something like turnovers. However, I
did just that when I found Bob Chaikin's data to have steals and
blocks from '74-'77, and some ABA stats. Thanks, Bob!
Count me in as someone who will check for errors or whatever.
Sounds like a worthwhile project. I don't see how copyrights can be
infringed when we have hand-entered data from so many sources, and
are now just pooling our resources.
