The NBA is the second sport I’ve focused on to develop ranking algorithms for because it has a few key differences compared to the sport of rugby league. For example, the NBA plays quarters instead of halves, has much higher scoring matches, and plays many more matches per season. All these make it an ideal sport to develop algorithms for.

The NBA 2016/17 is my first live-testing version of my ranks. It has been a great learning curve and, despite the odd ranking anomaly, the results have been good.
