I created a new advanced stat because I (like most people) hate TS%. So I made a stat that measured what TS% is supposed to measure only it kind of works.
I call it "Scoring Efficiency" and it is a metric that is intended to show how efficiently a player accrues points. This is the only thing that it measures. It is not an "overall rating", it is not an "offensive rating", it does not include playmaking or passing at all.
Just scoring points and just how efficiently it is done. Volume is not a meaningful advantage.
The formula is this; Points /((FGm) + (FTm/2) + (TO)). Simple.
I was looking at Octo's PG post and saw how Duhon's TS% was the highest of any of the PGs in the table and I was filled with TS% rage anew. I thought I would share my scoring evaluation method. I know most people probably aren't interested but this didn't take too long to write so I am okay with that.
Quick reference guide:
1.00 = Unbelievably horrible
1.50 = Average
2.00 = Awe-inspiringly crazy amazing
Here are some Scoring Efficiency ratings for Magic players and players around the league from last season (unless otherwise marked):
|Brook Lopez '11||1.87|
|Michael Jordan '87||2.00|
