Welcome to the NBA via “Spatial and Visual Analytics” or Court Vision for short. Basically this dude Kirk Goldsberry mapped out every shot in the NBA from the last 5 seasons to see if he could find any trends or surprise stats through black magic science. Essentially, Red means more shots made, and Blue means more shots bricked. Click on over to his site if you want to see what else he found out and how Deron Williams measures up against Rajon Rondo.

“In the quest to better understand the “average” NBA shooter I have begun making composite shooting charts for each position in the league. My eventual goal is to establish a spatially informed baseline and to map every shooter in the league against an average shooter. These charts are not good for that task, but they’re interesting nonetheless.

Here are composite shooting charts for each of the 5 conventional basketball positions. I combined the shooting data for every player in positional groups. There are some bizarre trends including some fascinating asymmetries.”

The False Analogy: What exactly is this chart trying to prove?
Is the notion that public sector workers are being paid too much?
Be skeptical of those who aim to make a point with an un-annotated graph.
This would be more accurate if it had showed each income bracket as stacked bars to display the proportion of public to private sector pay at each tier. Better still with an overlay for age and education level.
