I was trying to project the cavs 2013-14 record, and found myself scurrying down the rabbit hole that is Win Shares. I figure if you project each individual players' statistics, you could get their projected WS, then the sum of each players projected WS would provide an estimate of the teams total projected wins. I know it would be imperfect, but I still want to play around with it.
Problem is, calculating WS is not simple. I found a long explanation, that led to a longer explanations, and then to a longer explanation. I started doing it on excel, but it is taking way too long.
So, does anyone have a spreadsheet or know of an online WS calculator that will allow me to enter my statistical projections for each player on the Cavs and have it calculate their WS? Does anyone want to create their own WS calculator and send it to me? I'd rec your comments for months if you obliged.
