NBA Rank By Dummies Player’s manual


Lebron James, voted #1 in ESPN NBA Ranking

Starting from today, we have an improvement on our NBA Rank By Dummies project. We decided to tag the players when we post them on the rank.

Ok, I know your question is: “What NBA Rank By Dummies is?!?” (even if I’m pretty sure your real question is “What THE FUCK NBA Rank By Dummies is?!?”)

I’ll try to explain. It is a project born and raised after the ESPN NBA RANK was published few weeks ago, rank that in our mind doesn’t exactly fit the real player’s value for this season, when me and some other italian blogger decided to do our own rank, being sure to create a better one.

And so we started. First of all, I want to let you know the people behind this project:

Then, I’ll try to explain how we create this rank and how we’re publishing it.

Rules are very simple. The goal is to create an NBA Rank which includes the Top 100 NBA players, assuming to choose them for an hypothetical Playoff series that should start today.

Our original idea was to include the more detailed evaluation ever, but NBA didn’t agree with us when we proposed to do an autopsy of the players to go very deeper in our analisys (understood?!? The NBA! David Stern really loves you guys, think about it and stop the lockout!). So, we diverted in our second idea, which was to give each player an overall value (as per NBA2K value).

How did we created the Rank? Each of us filled up his own rank of his preferred 150 players (ok ESPN did it for 500 players, but we have a social life out there and also a real work like Delonte West) and then we averaged the results to obtain the Final Ranking.

Now, how we publish our rank? Exactly the same of ESPN Rank, using twitter. The hashtag to follow is #NBARankByDummies (don’t even ask why the word “dummies” is in the hashtag, it should be very clear) and, most important, follow our twitter account listed below. Every working day, starting from 5am ET, we will tweet a new position.  So, be sure to follow us!
