Ian Levy of Hickory-High.com has developed an intuitive new statistic for the use of all, and today I will be using it to view a better and clearer picture of the New York Knicks’ shot selection, player by player. This statistic formulated by Levy is called Expected Points Per Shot, or XPPS. This is based on the league average points per shot from a specific area on the court, and when used alongside an individual’s Actual Points Per Shot, it can determine who is taking shots from the most effective areas, who isn’t and how efficient they are, or should be. Using this, we can see how statistics match-up to popular theories such as how good of a bad-shot taker J.R. Smith really is, or if Raymond Felton is settling too much from the perimeter. Let’s do it.
