So what is better, a higher or lower PDIFF number? You mentioned PDIFF in relation to VORP so the VORP figures, along with the player's positiom must be factors that determine the PDIFF numbers, right?
Higher PDIFF is better. PDIFF is a measure of possession based college production and then the VORP is tracked via NBA stats. So it is tracking, relative to college production, how predictive is this excess production measure for NBA success? Hopefully that makes sense. Trying not to get too in to the weeds.
At some point, I want to get around to doing a large charting exercise on all this stuff but it is so much data (nearing 500 players, 30 some data points each) that my computer might blow up.
It is on my list of things to do though.
