Good judgments in scouting assists

We credit to the assisted offense when they score, to the defended assist when defense wins.
The credit does never depend on the difficulty of the contribution (pass).
This tends toward subjective judgment and is an obvious error.
The value of the shot is (the creation of the credit of) the value of the assist.

The credit of the assisting player depends only on the number of the points scored.
The credit of the defended assists depends only on the number of defended assists.

A bad pass.
Bad passes (that could produce a try for a goal- field or free) to players in potential assist possession are lost AP and are lost potential assists, they are defended assists. Who made the mistake?


Alley oop (is a high passing try for goal above and near the basket).
We have the big arbitrary question with a missed alley oop. Is it a turnover of the passer or a missed shot and also a defended assist? It depends mostly on the quality of the passing.
We have the same arbitrary question with difficult and surprising passing. Is it a defended assist of the passer when there is a missed shot? Is it is a turnover or a bad pass of the passer or a turnover or a bad pass of the receiver when there is no shot?

Technical foul developed in, after or because of a potential assisting sequence.
With a technical foul we credit the FT shooter with the good FT, but just like the bonus FT, without an extra AP for him. That AP belongs to the next offense.

Player assist ratio
=
sum of team assisted points
divided by
sum of his team assist possessions



Offensive assist player evaluation
=
sum of the team assisted points
divided by
(sum of his team assist possessions – team offensive rebounds)



Defended assist player evaluation
=
sum of the team defended assists
divided by
(sum of allowed team assist possessions - allowed team offensive rebounds)

These assist stats are only what the offensive player gives or tries to give, not the stats of the assists he is receiving from other players and “if” these passes are converted into points.
