I love advanced stats, but Win Shares seems like the kind of stat that no one completely understands unless they’ve read the Dean Oliver book. I tried to figure it out, and it still doesn’t make a ton of sense. How does the league average pace have any impact on how much a player helps his particular team win? It’s marginal in reference to HIS team, not to ALL the teams. I don’t quite get it, so maybe I shouldn’t argue on that point. Doesn’t it seem like it’d make sense to just use the difference between ORtg and DRtg? Kevin Martin last year had an ORtg of 115, but a DRtg of 117. Doesn’t that mean he gave up more points by being on the floor than he made up on the offensive end? Or am I again screwing up the stats? Someone help!
