Interesting stuff, and a lot of interesting stuff throughout the site.
I liked the piece in the archives about the value of a 2nd round pick.

Forgive me if you've already explained, but what's a "T rate"? How is
it calculated? What does the efficiency % measure?

Harlan does the writing analysis. He just lets me put up stats.

"Eff%" is my way of avoiding actually naming this stat. It can be
pronounced "effective %", "scoring efficiency" , or whatever. This
is just baskets (or equivalent) per attempt: Eff% = Pts/(FGA*2 +
FTA*.9)

Having been pressed to name my overall ranking number, I also
sidestepped this one. Total Rate is a default name for a weighted
total of other stats. The weights I've used the last couple of
seasons are:

Sco 1.0
Reb 1.0
Ast 1.333
PF -0.25
Stl 1.5
TO -1.25
Blk 1.5

A player's scoring rate is multiplied by a ratio of his Eff% divided
by an arbitrary average. Pts, Reb, and Ast are all scaled to the
relative abundance of these quantities in the teams' games.
