NBA adds the plus minus

With all the talk about how NHL GMs could be doing a better job tracking and applying interesting stats (see here, here, here and here) I thought it was interesting to see that the NBA has decided to adopt the NHL's plus minus system for their upcoming season.

Now if only the NHL would adopt the NBA's standard for accrediting assists...

    That is pretty interesting considering that I have noticed a a movement to discredit +/- as a statistic.

    A writer that follows Liverpool actually wrote a book about last season with a statistician that had the same aim of finding the most efficient combinations.
