RSPM Pages Are Up

I’ve finished transcribing all of the RSPM ratings and have now posted pages featuring these ratings on this website. You can access them via the links at the top of the page. There’s a page that ranks players by RSPM, a page that lists the RSPM of players with fewer than 1000 minutes played, and a page that that shows the RSPM of players according to what team they’re on.

I need to mention right now, because I’ve already seen people get confused by this – this rating IS NOT RAPM. This is NOT the same rating that you would see published by Jeremias Engelmann. It is instead a rating that estimates what a player’s RAPM would be by using box-score statistics. This is a critical distinction to make.

With that disclaimer out of the way, feel free to take a look, and I hope you enjoy the RSPM ratings.

EDIT: I also need to mention that I would never consider this statistic a “be-all, end-all” for how good a player is. Just as PER makes no attempt to quantify defense, RSPM uses box-score statistics and will therefore struggle to accurately measure players whose value comes from playing quality defense. RSPM is one statistic to look at, to include in a toolbox of statistics for the NBA.
