NBA Puts Five Decades Of Stats Online

HOUSTON (February 15, 2013)--The NBA put its entire statistical history online Friday, launching a website that allows fans to review box scores, shot charts, game logs and newer data that has changed the way players are rated.

The statistics, dating back to 1946, were previously available only to teams and league personnel, and only recently to media.

"There's no other sports website that I'm aware of that does this type of computing," said NBA executive vice president of operations and technology Steve Hellmuth.

The site includes every box score for every game played since the league's original season in 1946-47 and highlights noted games such as Chamberlain's record 100-point outing in 1962, when he averaged more than 50 points for the season, and Kobe Bryant's 81-point outburst in 2006.
