The Doppelganger Machine
- I've put together an Excel workbook which calculates player similarity based
on a number of pace- and league-adjusted stats. I've set it up so that
anyone can change the weights of each stat, to emphasize different
characteristics of a player's game. You can download it from my website at
It comes as a 3 meg zipped file. You'll probably need a recent-ish Excel
release to run it properly. There are instructions on the DISPLAY sheet,
which should be pretty straightforward. The are additional comments which
show up when you hold the cursor over certain cells.
Any accuracy that may issue from The Doppelganger Machine is purely
accidental. But as toys go, this one's kinda fun.
