Usage and True Shooting Tracker

I made a web app that allows you to see how the players on each team rate according to usage and true shooting. You can quickly get a sense for how players compare to one another and can sort by team or position.  The points are also sized and colored according to a player’s offensive rating, so you can see how much better (or worse) the team’s offense has been while they are on the court. The app will be updated as the season progresses so you can always see current stats.

As a bit of explanation, usage percentage is a measure of the percentage of possessions that a player “uses up” when they are on the floor. True shooting percentage is a measure of how efficient a player is shooting the ball.  It takes into account free throw shooting and the fact that 3’s are worth more than 2’s. High usage, high true shooting players are obviously really valuable.

Try it out!
