    I am still trying to figure out how to interpret this.

    i just saw this today and thought it was really cool. have to see how valuable it is or isn't. i didn't notice the points added part so that's nice.

    You should all definitely check out Harden's adjusted free throw rate relative to media darling Giannis. It's not even in the same ballpark.

    "So 125 doesn't mean a player was 25 percentage points above average, but 25 percent above average"

    :confused:

    But I do like this. Anybody familiar w/ wRC+ or similar baseball metrics can appreciate the simplicity/interpretability of stats on scales of 100 (where 100 = league average)

    It's one of the new bball reference adjusted shooting stats. And I must have misread it before, because I went back to look and it seems Harden and Gianni's are just about the same this year, although Gianni's was quite a bit higher than Harden the previous season.

    There's a curve and diminishing returns as science, nutrition and exercise gets refined. I don't imagine that athletes 50 years from now will be on another level like athletes now are on a different level from athletes 50 years ago. And there are always standouts like Babe Ruth or Michael Jordan.
