    So I've raised this before but with the increased amount of users I thought I'd bring it up again.

    Here is my preferred single value calculation for a players game, the Floor Impact Counter (FIC):

    (Points
    + Offensive Rebounds
    + .75 Defensive Rebounds
    + Assists
    + Steals
    + Blocks
    - .75 Field Goal Attempts
    - .375 Free Throw Attempts
    - Turnovers
    - .5 Personal Fouls)

    I like it because it's simple and you have a rough idea of how a player has gone just by looking through the box score.

    Our current scoring system is good, but I feel is sometimes over complicated and double counts some stats (FG and 3PtFG, PFs and Ejections, etc).

    Not sure if we can use decimals in the ESPN scoring system so everything would need to be multiplied by 8 to get them all to whole numbers.

    Some of the averages for players from last season:

    LBJ: 21
    KD: 18
    CP3: 18
    Blake: 16
    Rondo: 15
    Kobe: 14

    Any thoughts folks?

    So based on your stats, LBJ averages 21fp instead of what 57 last year ?

    Exactly, with a much cleaner less complicated formula.

    i like how there's an element of 'weighting' in our scoring system. ie defensive stats like blks and stls get a heavier weighting. plus i also thinking hitting 3s should have some weighting too.

    if we're gonna change the scoring system, then I think there should be consensus from the league. put it up for a vote? We kinda need to know well in advance because it impacts our drafting strategies.

    I like the scoring system we have. Everyone knows what it is before our draft and we can select the players who are best suited to the scoring system.

    Having said that, if there is a majority who want to change it, then I will agree to that.

    I prefer our scoring system. I like how it was a bit more even than that scoring system. ie. the person with the first round pick will get LeBron, and the last pick will get someone averaging half as much. Also, bigger scores are more fun to follow along with :p

    I personally prefer our scoring system of last season. I reckon we nailed it second time round. The only things I would prob change is to increase blocks to be worth 5 points instead of 4, and possibly decrease DDs 1 point.

    But they would not be entirely necessary changes as the scoring worked well last season i think.

    I'm not too fussed either way guys. I don't mind the sound of the new proposal, expect for the fact that the difference between an LBJ and a lesser player is now marginal.
