In this blog post, we are visually presenting Direct Offensive Contribution and Direct Offensive Efficiency stats for the most elite NBA players. After developing our advanced offensive indicators for involvement, contribution and efficiency, we had to wait for a couple of years to start observing changes over time.
To find the most average NBA players we analysed our advance offensive indicators (INV Rate, DOC, DOE) as well as defensive statistics (DWS, DBPM) and salaries for 2016/2017. The All-NBA Average team includes: Austin Rivers, Bojan Bogdanovic, Matt Barnes, Willie Cauley-Stein and Aron Baynes.
Direct Offensive Efficiency (DOE) is a “real” efficiency indicator, taking into account both offensive involvement and contribution. The results revealed that the indicator successfully presents another dimension of offensive game.
This time we are presenting new offensive impact indicator, Direct Offensive Contribution (DOC). The formula includes points scored, (2nd) assisted points, screen assisted points, offensive rebounds created points and free-throw assisted points.
We are presenting new “usage” indicator, Involvement Rate (INV Rate). In a way similar to Usage % and Usage Rate, yet it expands usage to other dimensions of player’s offensive game and narrows the gap between guards and power forwards/centers.
