• Anyone able to get this working? This is what I have for Paul Pierce: FGA: 239 FTA: 249 AST: 3 TO: 45 MIN: 565 (239+(149*0.44)+(73*0.33)+45)*93.47/(565*95.25)

Anyone able to get this working?

This is what I have for Paul Pierce:
FGA: 239
FTA: 249
AST: 3
TO: 45
MIN: 565

(239+(149*0.44)+(73*0.33)+45)*93.47/(565*95.25) = 0.648969

I've tried it for a few different players/years, and have yet to get
anything close to the values he has in the Prospectus/Forecast.

In the first prospectus it doesn't have the league pace in the
denominator, but just about everyone ends up with a rate of 30-40
points higher.

Can anyone help?
• I somehow left out the Multiply by 40 part. If you re doing a ranking it won t affect the order at all, but it makes the rating a measure of how many

I somehow left out the "Multiply by 40" part. If you're doing a
ranking it won't affect the order at all, but it makes the rating a
measure of how many posesssions a guy uses per 40 minutes.
