Site Introduction

I’m still putting the site together and fixing errors, so if you see any errors or possible improvements please let me know.

One big problem I’m having is finding opponents’ rebounds. This stat is necessary for calculating several individual and team statistics which are currently missing.

I set out to design a site that would analyze the Spanish ACB basketball league: Spain’s first division professional league and one of the top professional basketball leagues in the world. I’m sort of going for a Basketball-Reference meets blog feel. The plan is to provide ACB stats from the 2006-2007 season on, as well as analysis of ACB and and other basketball action.

ACB fans can find advanced statistics which I have had a hard time finding elsewhere. As well as read articles and voice their own opinions about the ACB or anything else basketball related.

NBA fans can check up on the performance of former NCAA and NBA players, veterans transitioning from the ACB to the NBA, and some top prospects whose draft rights are owned by an NBA team or will be entering an upcoming draft. Or just keep up with the ACB league.

Here are the ACB Wikipedia page and league’s official website if anyone wants more information on the league:

    Great idea for a website. Interesting comments, and I like the stats. Insightful websites like these are needed about the players making the move from Europe to the NBA and of course to keep track or those moving to Europe from the NBA. What do you think about the recent rumors about Chris Webber moving to play in Greece?

    Thanks a lot for the praise.

    This offseason has been pretty interesting with Sarunas Jasikevicius and Lynn Greer already choosing Europe over the NBA, and several other NBA players including Webber, Anderson Varejao, and Sasha Pavlovic considering doing the same. I was actually planning on writing about this phenomenon later this week, after posting an ACB offseason review and season preview.

    It’ll be really interesting to see whether C-Webb makes the jump. On the one hand, he’s got to have $100 million plus at this point, yet no priceless ring on his finger. So money is probably not a motivating factor, but winning an NBA championship probably is. Then again, the chance to go somewhere he really feels wanted and appreciated, as well as the chance to return to franchise player status bode well for Olympiakos.
