Is this a...

Re: Play-by-Play Data of Entire NBA Season as .csv Files

Yes, I saw the csv option at the top. However, it would be very good to have the entire dataset because it would have to be filtered to put it back into chronological order (so I can see in which order shots occurred per game).

Re: Play-by-Play Data of Entire NBA Season as .csv Files

Hi everyone, Thank you very, very much for your responses and help. :) I'm sorry, I should have probably been a bit more specific as to what exactly I would need. For example, the information about who is on the court is not important for my study and I'm mainly interested in all the information rel...

Re: Looking for measures of shot difficulty & defensive beha

Hey Crow, Thanks a lot for your response. :) I already looked on basketball-reference.com and 82games.com but I couldn't find any such measures. Basically, I am trying to measure how a player's shot selection varies in the course of the game due to defensive adjustments that are being made. For exam...

Looking for measures of shot difficulty & defensive behavior

Hi everyone, I'm new in this form and I just started doing some research for my PhD. For my studies, I would need some proxies which measure shot difficulty and defensive behavior with respect to a certain player. Does anyone happen to know some measures I could make use of? I've been playing basket...
