A quick feature note: just like we recently added player Twitter links to Baseball-Reference, we also have added about 500 players' Twitter links to their Basketball-Reference pages. (For example.)

As always, please let us know if we're missing anybody.

Posted by Neil on April 23, 2012

With the NFL Draft coming up this week, here's a reminder that you can check out the event's history in our Draft Section. You can also learn what kind of production your team can expect from each pick using the Draft Preview, and be sure to visit S-R's College Football site to view the college stats of this year's prospects.

BBR: Two Feature Updates

Posted by Justin Kubatko on April 17, 2012

This morning I updated a couple of things on Basketball-Reference.com.

First, you can now select rows to sum on the player game logs. For example, go to Michael Jordan's 1986-87 Game Log. Suppose you want to see Jordan's statistics for his first five games that season. To do this, click on the row for his first game of the season (the row should now be highlighted in blue), then click on the row for his fifth game of the season. A pop-up will appear with Jordan's per game averages for those games.

Second, I added an option to the Player Game Finder that will allow you to search by the player's game number rather than just the team game number. For example, here are the highest scoring debuts of the last 10 seasons.

BBR: PI+ Plus/Minus Finder

Posted by Neil on March 21, 2012

By popular demand, we have added a Player Plus/Minus Finder to the Basketball-Reference Play Index+. This new tool allows you to search through thousands of game logs to find the player whose team had the best offensive rating, best defensive rating, and best net rating while the player was on the floor (plus much, much more). For example, here are the raw +/- leaders (minimum 10,000 minutes) since 2001:
