A method to evaluate the most improved player in basketball based on a non-linear difficulty curveAuthor(s):
Jose A MartinezAbstract:
This paper has proposed a method to evaluate the improvement of basketball players from one season to following, considering the difficulty of the achieved performance. After adjusting a non-linear function and employing the Lagrange interpolation, a difficulty curve is obtained. By integrating between the performance of the previous season and the performance of the current season, a final coefficient (difficulty area) is provided. This coefficient is empirically based on the probabilities of performance of players, and provides an alternative criterion to decide which players has been the most improved.Pages: 101-105 | 145 Views 13 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
