Player Games

Player Games is a stat used to estimate the number of games a player is responsible for. It was developed by Dean Oliver, the first full-time statistical analyst in the NBA.

Player Games=Team Games*((3*(Poss/Team Poss)+3*(Stops/Team Stops)+(Minutes Played/Team Minutes Played))/7)

It places a high weight on the number of offensive and defensive possessions accounted for by a player rather than making player games a function based solely on minutes.

Stops are a player or teams estimated defensive stops. More information about that stat can be found in the book Basketball on Paper.

Famous quotes containing the words games and/or player:

    In the past, it seemed to make sense for a sportswriter on sabbatical from the playpen to attend the quadrennial hawgkilling when Presidential candidates are chosen, to observe and report upon politicians at play. After all, national conventions are games of a sort, and sports offers few spectacles richer in low comedy.

    If God had an agent, the world wouldn’t be built yet. It’d only be about Thursday.
    Jerry Reynolds, Sacramento Kings’ player personnel director. Quoted in Newsweek (New York, November 25, 1991)
