Hey all, I'm back. You'll be glad to know that my absense was because I was working on a final submission for a paper for the MIT Sloan Analytics Conference. If all goes well you'll see it by conference time. If it doesn't, you'll likely see it on this very website.
As always when I prep for the Rankings, I updated the visual guide illustrating each team's schedule and pace adjusted Point Margin, offense and defense per 100 possesions. All data in this post is through 01/08/2014.
You'll note I made some upgrades. Please, keep those comments coming.
Adjusted Win% vs Actual Win%
Strength of Schedule
As before, consider this a continuing proof of concept of some of the tools that I'm building. Thoughtful discussion and criticism is welcomed, but please send all flames to dev null.
