BBR: New Look for Basketball Reference

Latrell Sprewell NBA & ABA Statistics

You might notice that we've slightly tweaked the way things look at BBR, letting you do things like share stats and link to specific tables. Do not adjust your computer screens -- we simply updated the site's javascript today.

    Is it my imagination, or is the font size etc. really smaller than before? It is pretty hard on the eyes...

    It's not your imagination -- we changed it to match Baseball-Reference:

    Thanks for the work although I personally don't like the Red/White/Blue lines behind the 'all-star' button.

    Just saw the pages for "List of NBA Players Waived in 2005 Under “Allan Houston Rule” Amnesty Clause" - Eddie Robinson has to be in the Top 10 most overpaid scrubs in the 2000s.

    Love the Link option!

    Don't much care about the aesthetic.

    Looking over that similarity score, I gotta say Latrell fell way short of expectations. After his rookie year, we all thought he'd be one of the best guards of his generation. Now he's remembered for three things:

    1 - Choking a coach.
    2 - Punching a yacht.
    3 - Turning down a $7MM a year contract extension in Minnesota because he needed enough money to "feed his kids".

    Mostly he's good at dodging state taxes and smacking women upside the head on his boat.
