NBA Contract Data at Basketball-Reference

Posted by Neil on August 15, 2012

Basketball-Reference is proud to introduce our new NBA contract data, courtesy of Storytellerscontracts.com's Jeff Kramer.

The main elements we've added are contract tables on player and the team pages, complete with future payroll commitments for future seasons, the amount of guaranteed money each player is owed, and "payroll notes" describing the conditions of each player's deal. (Think of it as Cot's Contracts, but for the NBA.)

Check out the main contracts portal here and be sure to explore your favorite team's financial situation. Have fun!

Hockey-Reference Template Update

Posted by Neil on August 13, 2012

As you might have noticed, we updated the site template at Hockey-Reference over the weekend, bringing it up to code (pun intended) with the rest of the S-R sites.

What does that mean for you? Here's a rundown of the new features we added:

  • Rollover menus in the navbar. Rolling your mouse over the "play index | boxscores | players | etc." menus at the top of pages will now give you more options, including quick access to recent results.
  • Improved table sorting. Now, you can reset tables you sorted (via header clicking) by clicking the header again until the original sorting returns -- the order goes from Default --> Descending --> Ascending --> Default.
  • SHARE stats.You can now use our SHARE capability to customize tables, link to H-R content, and embed stats on your own site.
  • Link to specific tables. Every table has a Link option that lets you send people directly to the table you want.
  • ...and more!

As always, you can report ongoing bugs here: Sr.FogBugz.com
