This folder contains data behind the story Introducing RAPTOR, Our New Metric For The Modern NBA and the interactive The Best NBA Players This Season, According To RAPTOR.

modern_RAPTOR_by_player.csv contains RAPTOR data for every player broken out by season since 2014, when NBA player-tracking data first became available.

modern_RAPTOR_by_team.csv contains RAPTOR data for every player broken out by team, season and season_type since 2014, when NBA player-tracking data first became available.

historical_RAPTOR_by_team.csv contains RAPTOR data for every player broken out by team, season and season_type since the 1976 ABA-NBA merger.

These "historical" data files use full player-tracking RAPTOR for seasons since 2014, a version of RAPTOR that mixes box score value estimates with single-year regularized plus-minus data for seasons from 2001 through 2013, and a version of RAPTOR that only uses a box score estimate of value for the seasons from 1977 through 2000. In each era, the RAPTOR version with the highest level of detail is the version used.
