Value Add Basketball History and References

For a basic, succinct explanation of how Value Add Basketball pinpoints how many points each player is worth to his college team, click on articles in places such as the University of Arizona basketball siteBig Apple BucketsBleacher ReportBreitbart (700+ articles), ESPN (another ESPN draft guide), ESPN the MagazineFox NewsFox SportsNorthwestern State University, the Times-PicayuneSports Illustrated the Washington Post, blogs like Xavier Hoops Rumors and TV stations such as this one. The math is outlined in the following links.

1. Value Over Replacement Player

The system is similar to baseball WAR (Wins Above Replacement), meaning if a team is a 2-point favorite in a game before learning a player with a Value Add Rating of 4.0 cannot play and must be replaced by a borderline replacement player, then you subtract his rating and the team would be a 2-point underdog.

The first difference between Value Add and WAR are than WAR represents WINS above replacement over the course of a SEASON while Value Add measures POINTS above replacement in a typical GAME.  The second difference is that in baseball a player is replaced by one player (a shortstop is replaced by a shortstop who also takes a spot in the line-up), the impact of losing one player has a domino effect of perhaps a new "ninth player" getting a few minutes, but also of other players having to play more and thus becoming less efficient and drawing more defensive attention as calculated in great detail in this Big Apple Buckets piece.

2. The four main ratings

Value Add v5.0 Pts/Game - The most important figure is the Actual Value Add figure generated from the 5th version (v5.0) of the system. This gives the actual point impact a player has on a game, so a team that won 73-71 with a player with a Value Add of 4.00 would best estimated to lose 71-73 if a replacement player played instead of him. This final figure is a factor of the three figures that follow, but also accounts for a player getting less possessions because he is on a very good team and factors like this. In earlier years, this figure had to be adjusted based on the position a player played (the former PGPer) because point guards and perimeter defenders rated so much lower because they faced more risk of turnovers and could be muscled up and prevented from getting near the basket. Luckily the "freedom of movement rules" have allowed guards to move freely and there is now virtually no statistical difference between the average ratings of guards, forwards and centers eliminating a cumbersome adjustment.

AdjO - this is the figure of the player's impact on the identical rating that calculates for teams. So if gives a team a rating of 110.0 points per 100 trips down the court and a player's AdjO is 4.0, then the rating without him would be estimated at 107.0 (110.0 minus 4.00).

AdjD - the same is true of the defensive figure, where the bigger negative indicates great defense. So if calculates a player's defense at 94.0 AdjD per 100 trips down the court, a player's AdjD of 4.0 would be very bad, meaning the team would actually be a much better 90.0 AdjD with him replaced. However, a -4.00 AdjD for a player would be very good, meaning without the player the defense would start allowing 98.0 per 100 trips rather than just 94.0 if the player could not play.

AdjEM - The total of the two previous numbers equals the overall impact on team rating with the same name, which he gets by SUBTRACTING AdjD from AdjO as we do for the player. This is actually the Value Add 3.0 Rating, however it is in terms of 100 trips down the court rather than the lower number that results from the 70 or so trips during a game. While the AdjEM allowed a ball hog on a bad team to ring up an incredibly high rating by taking many of the shots, Version 5.0 calculates how many points the player would actually add in GAME for a strong team, so the Value Add number is much lower than the AdjEM.

3. Detailed Science Behind Value Add

If you want to truly follow the math, read on.

The science behind Value Add Basketball is laid out in Cracked Sidewalks pieces beginning in May 2011 and now. A massive effort to upgrade the system and pinpoint the impact each player had on his team's Offensive and Defensive Efficiency Ratings culminated at the end of 2015 with Value Add Version 3.0, 1000 lines of code, a series of improvements detailed here, and a simple explanation with illustrative tables to make the impact of each player easy to understand.

Others such as the Basketball Prospectus took the formula and suggested additional calculations based of the system, and Version 4.0 was introduced at the outset of the 2016-17, but honestly was the one version that did not work. We went back to the drawing board, and reach incredible breakthroughs in Version 5.0, which results in a current ratings that pinpoints everything we can measure on a court. Those improvements are detailed here.

Others such as the Basketball Prospectus took the formula and suggested additional calculations based of the system, and Version 4.0 was introduced at the outset of the 2016-17 season to measure the potential value of players based on how valuable they could be if they played 67% of the minutes and had 24% of the possessions during that time on the court.

Articles on the Value Add Basketball system appear in places such as the University of Arizona basketball siteBig Apple BucketsBleacher ReportBreitbart (700+ articles), ESPN (another ESPN draft guide), ESPN the MagazineFox NewsFox SportsNorthwestern State University, the Times-PicayuneSports Illustrated the Washington Post, blogs like Xavier Hoops Rumors and TV stations such as this one.

The system is similar to baseball WAR. However, while WAR measures one "replacement player" taking the place of a start player, in Value Add pin points the number of POINTS each college player is worth due to the "domino effect" of the impact on the entire game rotation when the player is lost.

From there we have played around with some offshoots, but none of these pretend to pinpoint value like Value Add Basketball does.

1. Baseball - The value of 250+ starting pitchers from 2014 and 2015 with every start detailed, and with an explanation of how the metrix can work when other systems fail.

2. Football - The value of 6000+ returning players - really just for fun as a one year attempt to value everyone from tackles to quarterbacks.

3. State-by-State - The top athletes in each state (track, hockey, etc., cast your vote by sending an email to with up to 10 players listed in your state).

Kentucky NBA Alumni Might Sweep Next Best 35 College Alumni Teams

Click here for the full story breaking down the 36 colleges that produce 47.3% of all NBA talent, and their projected records if they played as one NBA team.

That story is one of my stories for Breitbart, and the large table with breakdown of how many wins each player from these 36 colleges would add to his team appears here in an earlier Best Returning Players Post. The projections are based on Value Add Basketball and Hollinger's Estimated Wins Added (EWA).

Calculating records of 36 colleges with a complete NBA alumni roster

After laying out the calculation of additional wins of all NBA Players in the previous post, If we go the next step and rank all NBA players by the same method and then group them by their colleges, we have 27 colleges that could put a starting five on the court. When we add D-League players we get to a perfectly round 36 colleges.

Better yet, these 36 fall pretty nicely into the six current NBA Divisions, going with six colleges each Division. Using ESPN's Extra Wins formula for current NBA players and Value Add Basketball's ranking minus two for each player coming out of college this year, we give each college credit for the number of extra wins each of their top five NBA players delivered in 2016. If they have more than five NBA players we give half credit for the next best five players from the college, but any beyond 10 from one college are not counted.

Here are the final records we would expect from all 36 NBA players teams of current college players, and each players estimated win value in that division. At the bottom of the table the resultant playoff match-ups are listed:

NBA Value Tracker: Team-by-team list of the 148 NBA Players worth 4 additional wins or more

The additional wins a team can expect from drafting or trading for an impact player can be measured by referring to this chart. We follow only the 148 players who played at a level worth at least four additional wins to an NBA team over what a replacement player would have done, based on:

  1. Value Added ratings for players in the NBA last year, as listed here on ESPN.
  2. Value Add Basketball ratings minus 2 for players who played college basketball last year. The ratings at actually measure how many points a college player impacts his team's scores each 100 trips down the court, but the projection to their value at the next level is roughly projected in this way.
  3. The assumption that international picks were taken in roughly the correct position in the draft relative to the Value Add ratings of the college players selected near them in the draft.

This table does not rate players who were injured, or adjust for age (a 20 year old will likely improve the next year, while a 30 year old will likely decline).

The Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors and Chicago Bulls are the three teams who have improved by at least 15 games based on these analytics, but of course the Warriors cannot really improve that much with Kevin Durant since they were already 73-9.

Villanova's Four Top 200 Players - Best in US - Set Record and Make Big East Case

Prior to the Big East, Villanova needed to upset Kansas and beat an Oklahoma team that destroyed them earlier in the year to let the Big East finish with a better case than the Big 12 as the No 2 conference this year. Well, a record 44-point margin of victory by Nova over Oklahoma settles that case and leaves the final tournament records prior to the National Title game as:

ACC 18-5
Big East 8-4
Big 12 8-7

All other conferences with at least two teams invited had a losing record or .500 mark, though a shout out to the West Coast conference for not getting a second bid but looking great in the NIT and having Gonzaga go 2-1 and almost beat Syracuse.

Villanova was the only team at Value Add Basketball with four top four players in the top 200 and the ability to spread the court was unstoppable as they shot over 70% Saturday - the only team besides the 1985 Villanova squad to top that mark.

8 options for brackets

Here are the options we laid out for brackets - fully admitting that even the best sports analyst at MIT admit at conference the systems really don't work on a single game elimination. You can click on the piece and the options here.

Obviously, Value Add Basketball is an analytical tool to measure past performance and not a predictor of the future, but you can't help filling out brackets to capture the one time people are paying attention!

Complete Bracket Picks: Streaks, Injuries, NBA Talent, Experienced Point Guards

If you just want a visual of the filled in Fox Sports bracket scroll to the bottom of the post, or you can go to the table and fill in each team on the number of lines indicated.

In the table, the number of bracket lines (wins) recommended for each team is followed by the overall Bracket Rating, then by their Sagarin Rating, if they are hot or cold (see Breitbart Story), how many points they will lose or gain based on the Value Add of injured or returning players, the number of likely NBA players on their team, how much they rely on experienced point guards and if they have the All-American or at least All-Conference players to take them to a title. Explanations of each follow at the bottom. 

You can click on my analysis of the Midwest, East, South and West brackets - which appear in Breitbart Sports.

The "Bracket" Rating after each team is the total rating for the team based on the sum of the other columns. The teams with the best chance to win the tournament based on the other factors are Michigan State (102.6), Kansas (101.9), North Carolina (101.1), Kentucky (100.0) and Virginia (95.6).

The Sagarin Rating is how many points the team is better or worse than an opponent (if a team with an 86 plays a team with a 76, they should win by 10 points). The top teams based purely on how well the teams have played this season are Michigan State and Kansas at 93, and UNC, Virginia, Villanova and West Virginia all one point behind at 92.

The "Hot" rating indicates how much a team has been improving or fading over the past few weeks, primary at The hottest team going into the tournament is Stephen F. Austin (+4) followed by Michigan State, Oregon, Seton Hall, Yale and Northern Iowa all at +3.

The "Healthy" rating is a negative if a team is missing players (Oregon State and Michigan are missing key players), but it also indicates the teams that have key players back who missed parts of the season - thus making the team better now than their overall rating (Texas +3.1, Dayton +2.2, Michigan State +2.0 due to missing Valentine for several games, Utah +2.0 and South Dakota State +2.0. The list of players impact this rating were covered in a Breitbart Sports story.

The "NBA" rating is the estimation of how many players on the team will end up playing in the NBA based on Value Add basketball. If a team has two players with a 50% chance of making the NBA, we add the two .5 chances to estimate one NBA player emerges. As usual, Kentucky is first with an estimated four future NBA players on their team (4.33), followed by Kansas (3.54), UNC (3.46), Maryland (3.36), Duke (2.94), California (2.42), Notre Dame (2.19) and Vanderbilt (2.17).

The "Experienced Point Guard" indicates whether or not the team's top players are experienced guards particularly point guards, who can handle the pressure when things are not going well in the tournament. Oklahoma is the best in this regard with senior and Breitbart Sports National Player of the Year Buddy Hield and their second and third best players both being experienced point guards. They have a +1.8, while four teams have a 1.3 (Miami of Florida, Wichita State, UC Irvine and BYU). A team whose top players are all experienced front line players would have a 0.0.

The All-American rating is based on having the go-to players from the Breitbart Sports All-American team or at least an All-Conference posted here. A first team All-American like Denzil Valentine of Michigan State is worth 1.8 points, while Kentucky (3.0) has a second and fourth team All-American for the top spot. All-Conference players are worth much less, but Al McGuire's old saying that a team needs three and a half stars to win a title points to schools like Kansas (two All-Americans and one more All-Big 12 selection) as a contender.
