Trying to create an advanced stat... help?

Hey Pounders,

I've been working on a new stat that I'm creating, called OeR, or Overall effectiveness Rating. It started out small but with the help of a few of my peers at ESPNs ClipperBlog, it's grown substantially.


Here's the post I put on CN earlier:

http://www.clipsnation.com/2012/6/13/3083616/i-made-a-formula-stat-cer-center-effectiveness-rating-its#comments

The original formula, as stated if you follow the link, was:

{ ( Pp48 * fg% ) + Rp48 + [ Bp48 * ( 6 / Fp48 ) ] } / millions made

It was designed only for Centers, hence the lack of steals and assists. You will be happy to know that Duncan was the 3rd most effective center behind Howard and Bynum. You will be less pleased to know that once I divided effectiveness by salary he dropped to last of the 30 players who met my qualifications (at least 33 games at 20 minutes per game).

Here is the new formula, which is designed for all players:

< { ( Pp36 * eFG% ) + [ ( 3 * 3PTFGMp36 ) * 3pt% ] + ( FTMp36 * FT% ) + [ ( ORebp36 * 1.5 ) DRebp36 ] + ( Ap36 ) + [ ( Sp36 + Bp36 ) / ( TOp36 + PFp36 ) ] } * team pace > / millions made

Pace adjusted, incorporates 3pt shooting and FT shooting and gives more credit to offensive boards and gives guards points for assists and steals and takes away from turnover-prone players.

I know you guys are smart, what does PtR think?

EDIT: The newest formula is

{ [ ( FGAp36 + FTAp36 ) * TS% ] + [ ( Orebp36 * 1.5 ) + Drebp36 ] + [ Ap36 / TOp36 ] + [ ( Sp36 + Bp36 + { FTA / 2 } ) / PFp36 ] x ( 100 / team pace )} / by $

We like it, now time to plug in numbers...
