NBA Player Production Average

Player Production Average (PPA) is an overall rating stat I developed that credits players for things they do that help a team win and debits them for things that hurt the cause. PPA is similar to other linear weight rating metrics such as John Hollinger’s PER, David Berri’s Wins Produced, Kevin Pelton’s VORP, and the granddaddy of them all, Dave Heeren’s TENDEX.

PPA is pace neutral, and weighs a player’s performance per possession against the performance of his competitors season by season. While PPA falls into the category of a linear weight metric, the actual values for each statistical category floats a bit from season to season based on league performance.

PPA is pace neutral, accounts for defense, and includes a “degree of difficulty” factor based on the level of competition a player faces while on the floor.

Inputs include:

  • points
  • rebounds (offensive and defensive weighed differently)
  • assists
  • steals
  • blocks
  • shot attempts
  • turnovers
  • personal fouls
  • starts
  • minutes
  • on-court team defensive rating

All stats are per 100 possessions — adjusted for game pace for each player during his time on the floor.

What do PPA scores mean (in most seasons):

  • 225+ — league Most Valuable Player candidate
  • 175+ — typically All-NBA level (top 15-20 in the league)
  • 150+ — All-Star level
  • 100 — average
  • 75 — valued reserve
  • 45 and below — replacement level

I have not yet published details on how PPA works. That’s being planned, and I’ll provide additional information as those plans solidify.

  1. Great initiative. I am looking forward to the methodology behind the assignment of weights to the different categories. Good players come out on top, but your model does seem to favor big men more than guards/wings.

    It could be possible that these big men do indeed have a more positive impact on their team compared to the smaller players. However, eyeballing the results seem to consistently put big men above their teammates who are considered “better” by subjective opinions of the masses. (Gortat>Wall, Valanciunas>Lowry&DeRozan, Koufus&Randolph&CauleyStein as best Kings players, Monroe&Chandler&Len as best Suns players, etc).

    Good work, love the idea of adjusting for pace and I am looking forward to the process behind this model.

    1. Appreciate the thoughts. The ratings are driven by the regressions. I am looking at a some kind of a position adjustment, but it definitely won’t be PG/SG/SF/PF/C positions.

      It could be as few as three positions — something like guards, wings, and bigs. But, any position adjustment I do will be driven by numbers, not the poorly defined position designations typically used.
