"We played our last game only two days ago. We're still hot." -- SF 3B Pablo Sandoval, after his 3 home runs propelled the Giants to an opening win in the World Series
The start of the NBA season is less than a week away. The RIHC draft has passed the mid-point, and draft pick rationales will soon be converting to “rationalizations.”
Meanwhile, behind the scenes I’ve been reengineering some of my hoops stats processes, most which haven’t been significantly updated in the past 10 years. While I will be continuing to produce the traditional sortable stats for the various affiliated daily contest sites, I’m wondering if there are other reporting capabilities (e.g., production of raw stats data in CSV format, or some other sort of statistical analysis) that might be worth developing. I certainly have no interest in reproducing analysis that’s already available at sites like ESPN or Yahoo or NBA.com. But are there useful tools that I could develop that would “fill in the cracks” in the more widely available tools? If you have ideas, please speak up.

Are there any advanced metrics that are not proprietary? Is there something as widely accepted as WAR for basketball? I like PER, but that is ESPN's property.
