[OC] Introducing Playoff Success Shares : quantifying contextualised playoff success (the end of the Rings Erneh argument ?)
The concept :SKIP TO PSS RESULTS IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT HOW THE NUMBERS ARE CALCULATED
A couple of you might remember this stat from the first post about it, back in the distant year of 2017, but for the rest :
As far as resumes go, there aren’t many objective ways of ranking individually attributable playoff success. We all agree “best player on a championship team” is the best, but what about comparing different guys who achieved that ? This guy had better teammates, but that guy played in an easier conference. How about being the best player on a conference finalist ? Is that better than being no2 on a title team ? Well, it depends on a player’s individual performance, it depends on how good the player’s teammates are, and it depends on how tough the competition was.
So I looked for a way of quantifying the amount of team playoff success a player is individually responsible for, contextualised for teammate level, strength of competition and team performance.
The essential idea is this : first, we figure out how much contextualised success every playoff team in NBA history has had.
Second, we figure out, for each playoff team, how much (percentage wise) each individual player on that team was individually responsible for.
Finally, we multiply the two to come up with the player’s individual number, called Playoff Success Shares, or PSS. So, we can calculate this for every season, every playoff team, every player. Here’s how it works :
The method :So, how do we come up with a single number to define a team’s playoff success ? Here are the problems :
First off, it seems completely subjective to decide how much PSS a team would get based solely on which round of the playoffs they reached.
Secondly, it seems somewhat unfair, since a team doesn’t necessarily deserve more credit just going further. For example the Kings in 2002 pushed the Lakers to 7 in the WCF compared to the clearly weaker 2002 Nets who got swept by those same Lakers. It just didn’t sit right with me that the Nets would get to split more Shares between them just because they happened to be in the weaker conference and thus reached the Finals instead of “only” making the WCF.
So here’s what I came up with :At the end of the regular season, all playoff teams are assigned a value (Regular Season Value), meant to represent how good they were, based on win percentage and simple-rating-system. SRS allows to account for strength of competition (showing that just because the ’16 Raptors won more games than the ’16 Thunder, they weren’t a better team), and win percentage is a good equalizer to avoid things like one team having negative value or one team having a value 4000 times greater than another.
The average team ( .500 record, 0 SRS) would have a Regular Season Value of 50.
The very best regular season teams ever have a value approaching 200 (206 for the ’96 Bulls, 201 for the ’72 Lakers and 200 for the ’71 Bucks are the only teams to pass 200).
Teams then accumulate Playoff Value (PV), based on their opponents and their performance.
For the first round, the losing team accumulates more Playoff Value the closer the series was (pushing it to 7 gains more Playoff Value than getting swept), and the exact amount of Playoff Value they gain is proportional to the Regular Season Value of the team they lost to, assuming they won games.
To give you a bit of an idea of the numbers, here’s how much Playoff Value (PV) a team would add in a first round loss against the ’16 Warriors or ’07 Nets :
|Result||’16 GSW||’07 NJN|
|Loss in 4||50.0 PV||50.0 PV|
|Loss in 5||69.3 PV||54.0 PV|
|Loss in 6||88.6 PV||58.0 PV|
|Loss in 7||107.8 PV||62.0 PV|
From the 2nd round onwards, the calculations remain the same except instead of using only the opponents’ Regular Season Value, the already accumulated Playoff Value is taken into account as well. The idea being that some teams play better in the playoffs, and therefore teams “inherit” a part of the value of their opponents as the rounds go on.
The ’16 Thunder were tough to beat not just because they were the 55-win Thunder, but also because they were the team that beat the 67-win Spurs.
For example, eliminating the ’07 Warriors gained the Jazz a decent amount of Playoff Value that round because they weren’t just the ’07 Warriors, they were also the team that beat the ’07 Mavs. For this exact example, the ’07 Jazz added 115.4 Playoff Value in the 2nd round by beating the Warriors in 5, but if just the Regular Season Value was taken into account, they would only have added 53.6 Playoff Value in that second round. This is of course one of the most extreme examples.
The Playoff Value gained during each round is then added together for a total Playoff Value, meant to represent how much a team’s playoff run was worth, once strength of competition, and performance against said competition, are accounted for.
Although not statistically an obligation in this model, the winning team has always had the most Playoff Value every year by a big stretch (due to more Playoff Value being up for grabs the further the round).
Playoff Value results :Since 2000, the highest Playoff Values are the ’01 Lakers (15-1 record, 4 straight 50-win teams) at 866.7 (the highest ever), the ’11 Mavs (pretty good playoff record, really tough competition) at 833.1 and the ’16 Cavs (for having beaten the super-Warriors) at 826.3 (464.0 of which was accumulated in the Finals alone).
However, this model is unfair to teams that are better in the regular season.
For example, in 2016, the Spurs swept the first round and lost the 2nd round in 6. The Blazers won the 1st round in 6, and then lost in 5. Yet the Blazers accumulated more Playoff Value simply by virtue of playing tougher competition.
This seems unfair as the Blazers didn’t play tougher competition because they played in a more competitive era or conference, it was merely because they weren’t good enough to secure a high seed in the regular season.
Thus, the Regular Season Value is added to the Playoff Value. Important to stress, this is NOT because this metric aims to take into account regular season performance directly, but simply for recognising the importance of the regular season in making the playoffs and securing a high seed (thus making the road to the title easier).
That being said, this is still a playoff stat, so the Regular Season Value isn’t a huge difference (on most title teams, the Regular Season Value is about 135, while the Playoff Value is over 700), and mostly impacts teams that lose in early rounds.
The exact calculations are adjusted so as not to penalise teams that played when the 1st round was best-of-5, or when the first round was a bye for the top seeds, etc ...
Total Value resultsSince 2000, the highest Total Values are still the ’01 Lakers (972.2), however the ’16 Cavs (953.4) leapfrog the ’11 Mavs (946.4) because they were better in the regular season (remember, it’s not about rewarding good play in the regular season as much as it is not punishing teams that avoided tough competition in the playoffs by being great in the regular season), and the ’17 Warriors join the mix in 3rd place with a 952.1.
The lowest Total Values by title teams since 2000 are the ’13 Heat (784.7), ’04 Pistons (785.1) and ’20 Lakers (786.2).
The highest Total Values by Finals losing teams since 2000 are the ’08 Lakers (766.5, highest mark ever, almost as much as some title teams), the ’13 Spurs (701.8) and the ’16 Warriors (681.1).
The model also confirms what common sense indicated : the 2002 Kings had a 491.5 Total Value (2nd highest for a team that lost in the conference Finals ever) while the ’02 Nets had a 429.8 Total Value (lowest for a Finals loser so far this century).
The model also roughly confirms what many experts believe : basketball got a lot better really quickly from the 60s to the 90s, and has roughly stagnated since (maybe a better way to word this would be that great teams had easier paths to the title in the 60s. It's not a measure of the actual level of play on the court).
Average Total Value for the title team by decade, as well the highest Total Value for a team that decade :
2010s : 889.6 (so far) , ’16 Cavs (953.4)
2000s : 876.9, ’01 Lakers (972.2)
1990s : 916.7, ’97 Bulls (1057.3, all-time best mark)
1980s : 785.4, ’89 Pistons (951.7)
1970s : 692.7, ’72 Lakers (877.8)
1960s : 570.4, ’69 Celtics (701.6)
1950s (’50 and ’51 not included) : 440.4, ’53 Lakers (544.6)
Each playoff team’s total value is then divided by the same number, calculated so that the average number of PSS a title team receives is 5.00, which is seems arbitrary but means the average starter on an average title team with no bench should receive 1.00 PSS for 1 ring.
The highest (’97 Bulls) received 6.91 PSS as a team, the lowest title team (’57 Celtics) received 2.42 PSS.
If enough people are interested, I’ll make a post just about team Value and which were the best playoff runs ever ranked by this metric, where I go more into detail on the adjustments for the different playoff formats that have existed over the course of the NBA since ’52 (10 different formats in that timeframe).
Here are the top 15 ever Total Value playoff runs :
|Team||Total Value||Playoff Value||Regular Season Value|
- A few obvious flaws : there is still some subjectivity to the model (deciding the factor in front of the formula that adjusts for competition level and length of series, which increases each round) and the model assumes an opponent is as good during a series as it was before the series, which is wrong if a team chokes or, more likely, suffers from injuries to one/some of its best player(s) and finally the model benefits teams from the 50s/60s by considering a loss in the 1st round (which was also the conference semis at the time) equivalent to losing in the conference semis nowadays, instead of considering it the equivalent of losing in the 1st round (not that impactful of a decision considering the teams from those decades still accumulated very low numbers of Total Value).
- Even incorporating the “inheriting value” factor, teams with mediocre regular seasons than massively overperform in the playoffs still aren’t considered amazing opponents to beat. Most glaring example is the 2017 Warriors “only” accumulating 294.9 PV in the Finals because as amazing as the Cavs were in the playoffs, they were still just a 51-win team with a meh 2.87 SRS.
- The ’73 Knicks (869.4) and ’72 Lakers (877.8) are the complete outliers of the pre-merger era, with more than 160 Total Value more than any other team of that era (’52-’76). There was only one other team before the ’76 merger that even cracked 700 (’69 Celtics at 701.6).
- 1989 was a true tipping point. The ’89 Pistons were the first team to crack 900. Before them, only 5 teams had reached 800 (’72 Lakers, ’73 Knicks, ’80 Lakers, ’83 Sixers and ’86 Celtics, which is 5/37 champs from ’52 to ’88), but since ’89, every title team has cracked 800 except the ’04 Pistons, ’20 Lakers and ’13 Heat (which is 29/32 champs from ’89 to ’16) and almost half have reached 900+ (15/32).
- Unsurprisingly, since 2000, the losing WCF team had a higher Total Value than the losing ECF team all but three years (’09, ’19 and ’20).
- No losing Finals team has ever had more Total Value than the champions.
- Rarely has a Conference Finals losing team had more Total Value than the Finals losing team, but it has happened a few times (’02 Kings (491.5) over Nets (429.8), ’81 Sixers (467.9) over Rockets (424.5) and ’72 Bucks (396.4) over Knicks (387.5))
- Top 5 Highest Total Value for teams that didn’t win the title : ’08 Lakers (766.5), '13 Spurs (701.8), ’98 Jazz (694.0), ’91 Lakers (689.8) and ’16 Warriors (681.1).
PSSThe team PSS is then split between the players on a team using various advanced stats.
4 Advanced stats are used to determine credit :
- Playoff VORP : VORP is good because it’s already cumulative, and because it’s a box-score derived metric. This makes it less accurate but also calculable going as far back as 1974. More accurate stats like RPM or RPM wins don’t go nearly as far back, so are useless for historic comparisons.
- Playoff Win Shares : same advantages, already cumulative and calculable going all the way back to 1955.
- Cumulative Playoff PER : PER is the most flawed of these but presents the advantage of being a good equalizer. VORP and WS can be negative or close to 0 so using only those would give a huge boost to the superstar level players and the role players would get very little credit (and by that I mean basically none), so the metric would lose all purpose as it would become synonymous with the “Finals MVPs” approach discussed earlier. PER is multiplied by minutes played to get “cumulative PER” since a player posting a 43 PER who played 5 minutes over the entire playoffs should not be getting too much credit for a title. The assumption is made that a team's pace doesn't vary much from lineup to lineup (less than 10 possessions per 48 minutes difference)
- Cumulative last series GameScore : Now I know I said the whole point of this was to stop players being judged only by rings or Finals MVPs, but I do believe that the players that stepped up in the last round a team reached should get a bigger chunk of the credit than a teammate that contributed just as much overall but mostly contributed in the first 3 rounds. The formula is simply the sum of the player’s GameScore for each game they played in the Finals. (for example, without this factor, Kobe gets more credit for 2001 than Shaq).
The weights are 1 for PER x MP, 5 000 for WS, 12 000 for VORP and a variable weight for series GameScore that varies from 150 for a 7 game Finals to 263 for a Finals sweep (the point being that just because a Finals was shorter shouldn’t mean that the Finals GameScore factor should count less)
These weights were chosen so that the team totals in each category would be roughly equal.
Example for the 2016 Cavs :
sum of players’ PER x MP : 88472
sum of players’ WS x 5000 : 86000
sum of players’ VORP x 12000 : 87600
sum of players’ Cumulative Finals GmSc x 150 : 80820
Finally each player’s total “score” is divided by the team’s total “score”, given a number that can be interpreted as the % of the credit that player deserves for that title run. This percentage is multiplied by the total PSS the team received to give
An example of what this means :
All the 2014 Spurs got a ring, and Kawhi got a Finals MVP. Nobody else got anything.
On paper :
Kawhi : 1 ring, 1 Finals MVP
Duncan : 1 ring, 0 Finals MVP
Austin Daye : 1 ring, 0 Finals MVP
LeBron : 0 rings, 0 Finals MVP
DeMarcus Cousins : 0 rings, 0 Finals MVP
So resume-wise, LeBron adds no more than Boogie (who missed the playoffs) and Duncan adds no more than Austin Daye.
But by PSS :
Kawhi : 0.96 PSS
Duncan : 0.90 PSS
Austin Daye : 0.002 PSS
LeBron : 1.13 PSS
Boogie : 0.00 PSS
PSS ResultsFor those who skipped to here : PSS is a measure of a player's contribution to a playoff team, with context of team performance, teammate level and strength of competition taken into account. How well a team does (and who they do it against) gives the team a total PSS, which is then split between the players on said team using advanced stats to determine who deserves how much of the team PSS.
For each decade, the first table represents how many PSS each notable player accumulated each year. Cells in green are for players that won a ring that year, in orange are those that lost in the Finals. All runs over 1PSS are bolded.
The second represents each player’s career accumulated PSS year-by-year, color-scaled to highlight the best players (green) and the least productive among these examples (red). The players deemed “notable” enough to include in these tables are the big names of the decade/era in question, as well as a few key roles players (and every All-NBA 1st Team member, explaining DeAndre’s inclusion).
For all players with at least 5 or more career PSS, here’s a graph of how they stack up :
Here are the tables for each decade, as well as a “recap” for all players with 5+ career PSS :
RECAP for top players
Here are the players with 5+ PSS for those who don't can’t use the links or whatever :
- THIS IS NOT A GOAT RANKING These numbers are merely meant to replace the “Finals MVP” and “rings” lines in a players’ CV, not be a single metric that encapsulates a player’s entire resume.
- The players with multiple “Playoff MVPs” are : Russell (8), Jordan (7), LeBron (6), Shaq and Magic (4), Mikan, Kareem, Bird and Duncan (3), Wilt, Havlicek, Walt Frazier, Hakeem, Kobe and Curry (2).
- A good barometer seems to be 1 PSS = 1 good performance on a title team or 1 great performance on a non-title team, 1.5 PSS = 1 great performance on a title team and 2 PSS = 1 all-time great performance on a title team.
- LeBron is the all-time leader at 17.29 PSS, over Jordan (15.47).
- Dolph Schayes had the most PSS over the ’50s decade (2.81), Russell over the ‘60s (8.19), Kareem over the ‘70s (5.62), Magic over the ’80s (9.80), Jordan over the ‘90s (12.91), Kobe over the ’00s (8.88) and LeBron over the ’10s (12.57) and ’20s so far (1.60).
- Kareem is also 3rd over the ‘80s, and is the only player to be top 3 in two different decades (not counting the ’20s yet). Ironically, he’s 1st of the ‘70s and 3rd of the ’80s despite accumulating more PSS in the ’80s than ’70s.
- LeBron has the most runs of 1 or more PSS at 10, followed by Jordan (8), Kobe and Magic (6), Pippen (5), Shaq, Bird, Kareem and Duncan (4). LeBron holds the record for most consecutive years of 1+ PSS at 8 straight (his 8 straight Finals streak).
- Russell was the first player to reach 1PSS in a single season (’62), Kareem was the first to 1.5PSS (’80) and Jordan the first to 2PSS (’91).
- At least one player has reached 1 or more PSS every year since ’79.
- The only players to accumulate 1 or more PSS in a year in which their team didn’t win are Kareem, Dr. J, Bird, Magic, Drexler, Barkley, Jordan, Karl Malone, Payton, Shaq, Kobe, Dirk, Wade, Dwight, LeBron, KD, Steph and Jimmy Butler. Drexler, Jordan, Kobe and LeBron are the only ones to do so more than once. LeBron holds the record for most such playoff runs at 6 (nobody else has more than 2).
- LeBron and Jordan are the only 2 players to ever accumulate more than 1 PSS in a season in which their team didn’t reach the Finals (’09 and ’89/’90). Jordan is the only player to do so more than once, and is also the only player to ever lead the league in PSS in a year in which he didn’t reach the Finals (’89).
- The only players to lead the league in PSS in years in which they didn’t win the title are Kareem (’74), Jordan (’89), Shaq (’04), Kobe (’08) and LeBron (’14, ’18). LeBron’s the only one to do it twice.
- The only runs with more than 2 PSS are ’97 Jordan (2.10), ’00 Shaq (2.09), ’91 Jordan (2.05), ’93 Jordan (2.03) and ’16 LeBron (2.01). ’03 Duncan just misses the cut (1.997). Thus Jordan has more such runs than the rest of all players in NBA history combined.
- The next best runs are ’03 Duncan (2.00), ’06 Wade (1.94), ’12 LeBron (1.94) and ’94 Hakeem (1.93).
- The highest PSS in a year with no ring is ’18 LeBron BY FAR (1.67), followed by ’91 Magic (1.43), ’08 Kobe (1.36) and ’06 Dirk (1.33).
- The best duos ever are ’97 Jordan/Pippen (3.48), ’91 Jordan/Pippen (3.33) and ’01 Shaq/Kobe (3.31). The only teams to feature two players over 1.5 PSS are the ’01 Lakers (Shaq and Kobe) and ’10 Lakers (Pau and Kobe). ’20 Lakers only just miss the cut (LeBron 1.60, AD 1.49).
- The ’92 Bulls are the only team to feature 3 players over 1PSS (Jordan, Pippen and Grant).
- 2009 is the only year that 4 different players had over 1PSS (Kobe, Pau, Dwight and LeBron).
- LeBron is the only player to have accumulated 5+ PSS for two different franchises.
- Kobe and Magic have every “most PSS through age X” record from age 18 to 29 (Magic has 7 of them, Kobe has the other 5). LeBron has the record for most PSS through age 30 and above.
- Magic, Bird and Duncan have every “most PSS through X years in the league” record from rookie year to 8th season. Jordan and Magic are neck and neck through 9 and 10 seasons, and Jordan has the record for most PSS through 11, 12, 13 and 14 years. LeBron has the most through the first 15 seasons, and onwards.
- The timeline of “most PSS ever” record looks like this : ’50-’58 Mikan, ’58-’61 Schayes, ’62-’83 Russell, ’84-’96 Kareem, ’97-’17 Jordan, ’18-now LeBron.
- 17 of the 39 players with 5 or more career PSS played for the Lakers or Celtics at some point in their career. The Celtics have 5 players to make the list who played exclusively for their franchise (Russell, Bird, Havlicek, McHale and Sam Jones) , the Spurs have 4 (Duncan, Robinson, Parker and Ginobili) and the Lakers “only” have 3 (Kobe, Magic and Jerry West) but two of them are in the top 7.
- Being based on box-score derived metrics, high-impact players who don’t show up much on the boxscore aren’t well represented (Rodman is the ultimate example of this).
- For the same reasons, high-volume low-efficiency scorers are also screwed by the model (Iverson gets only 0.84 PSS for ’01, and 2.70 for his career).
- Some players are higher than expected (Grant, Pippen, K. Malone, …), but it’s important to remember this metric doesn’t aim to represent the best playoff performers, but simply the ones with the most individually attributable playoff success, so it’s not insane that players with crazy longevity or that played on many great teams would show up high on these rankings.
- Since context is taken into account, the numbers are comparable directly to one another. It doesn’t make sense to say something like “Wilt had 8.99 PSS despite only winning twice” or “Russell has 9.55 PSS despite playing in a weak era”. The entire point is that that’s already taken into account. If Wilt had more help, he would have gotten further and his team would have accumulated more value, but he also would have gotten a smaller chunk of it. If Russell had played in a stronger era, he would have gotten more PSS for getting each ring, but he would have won fewer rings. The only context that could make sense to add is time (“Bird got 9.04 PSS despite only playing 9 full healthy seasons” for example is a logical observation).
Possible improvements :
- Instead of calculating what percentage of his team’s success a player is responsible for and multiplying it by the team’s total PSS, it would be more accurate to do so for round by round. That would benefit the players that stepped up in the more valuable rounds. Right now, the Last Series GameScore factor advantages the players that step up in the last series played, but all previous rounds count equally. Problem is precise series-by-series stats aren’t available before ’73, and even after that, only GameScore is accessible for all playoff series.
- Regular season may be more accurate if another factor was considered, maybe Elo rating ?
- The Playoff Value calculation could be made more accurate. Some series are closer than the series score indicates, and for others it’s the opposite. I’m thinking including series point differential to the formula, but that would require going through a LOT more data.
- The first two NBA seasons and BAA seasons cannot be used (barely any boxscore data available). However, ABA is calculable, so I might get around to doing that. Dr. J is already really high on the list off of his NBA career alone, so I wonder how high he could get if the ABA counted.
