    I have never seen nor understood Carl Boozer being rated. He is an average regular season guy, who cannot produce in the playoffs; poor Chicago. Similarly, Jeff McInnis?! “LOL!”

    According to this, Yao Ming’s offensive RAPM over his career was -0.5. But from Jeremias Engelmann’s page, Yao’s ORAPM season-by-season was: 0.3, 0.9, -0.3, 0.9, 2.7, 1.3, 1.7, (out for year), -1.3 (only 5 games).

    It looks like there is a discrepancy here. Are you guys maybe using different methods for calculating RAPM, or does computing over multiple seasons do something funny to the ratings?

      J.E. has just moved from pure RAPM to box-score informed RAPM, which is a different animal and not independent anymore. In addition, it uses height in the regression, a variable in which, if I mistake not, Yao was an outlier.

      You are correct, though–true single year RAPM will not sum to multi-year RAPM. That was not the (biggest) issue here, though.
