I can't promise anything as I need to dig into it first. but in
what format the data could be compiled for others to be usefull
could be defined inside this group. once i get hands on some data
and enough time, i see what i can do and put up some data on a
web site. right now, i'm working on the basic frame work to
handle such data, which still needs some polishing.
the way roland is doing it is quite good (takin' directly off of
nba.com). anyone ever contacted roland about accessing raw data?
they might not really like to leak that out as they are running a
business with their site.
