One of the most common questions that I am asked is “How do I make NBA Projections?” or “Where do I get NBA data?”. I made a video to hopefully get you started in the right direction for making your own NBA Projections. A few notes about this video:

  • It’s long at 34:34. I tried a few different versions of this video and most clocked in over an hour. I tried to make this a “crash course” to get you started, but creating projections is not a quick process. It usually takes me 2+ hours to create this spreadsheet every season and around 15 minutes of daily maintenance.
  • This is just ONE way to make projections. I chose to rely heavily on opponent matchup, Vegas lines and projected minutes for each player. You can customize the weighting of factors any way you want.
  • I am happy to answer any questions regarding the projections. You can leave a comment on the YouTube page, tweet me, email me or post in the forums.
  • Here’s the actual spreadsheet used to create the video.
