Just got this press release sent to me:
 
LeBron is back and ticket demand is skyrocketing for tomorrow’s Warriors-Lakers game as a result.
 
According to no-fee secondary ticket marketplace, TickPick, tickets have an average listing price of $1,063 and are on the rise — making it the most expensive ticket of the NBA season, which tops the $885 average listing price for the Christmas Day game featuring the same two teams. Tomorrow’s ticket is 88% higher than the Warriors’ season average of $565.
 
The cheapest ticket is currently available for $188 and the average purchase price is at $457.

NBA Ball Hog Statistical Rankings: Update 1

Category : Hoops Manifesto

Oct 28, 2018; Los Angeles, CA, USA; LA Clippers guard Tyrone Wallace (9) goes to the basket defended by Washington Wizards guard Tomas Satoransky (31) and forward Kelly Oubre Jr. (12) during the fourth quarter at Staples Center. Mandatory Credit: Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY
 
My task was simple enough – I wanted to figure out, statistically, who the biggest ball hog/black hole/teammate from hell/etc. was in the NBA.  With the plethora of stats available today, it shouldn’t be too hard to figure that out, I surmised.  While I was researching what stats I should use – Usage %, Assist % – I stumbled across a now defunct site – Basketball-Statistics – that had already done this back in 2009.  Perfect!
After giving their formula some thought and test drives, it seems to pass muster.  You can check out the formula here, but in summary it takes into account how much a player uses up his team’s possessions (Usage %), how well he shoots (True Shooting %) and how often he sets up his teammates (Assist %).  It also takes into account what position on the court the player plays and adjusts the formula based on the average numbers players playing the same position puts on the board.  So, for a true ball hog, we are looking for a guy with an above average Usage Rate (above 20%) who shoots poorly and doesn’t pass.
So far this season, the rookies have not been shy about chucking, and the Knicks Kevin Knox leads the way.  At the other end of the spectrum, Nikola Jokic, LeBron James & James Harden are as anti-ball hog as you can get.
 
Here’s our top 20 at this point.
