Award Share

Award Share:
The formula is

(award points) / (maximum number of award points)

For example, in the 2002-03 MVP voting Tim Duncan had 962 points out of a possible 1190.

090308 ~ To Measure MVP Support

We can measure MVP support by looking at something called award shares. An award share is simply award points won by the player divided by the maximum number of award points. Let me give you an example. In 2006-07, Dirk Nowitzki won 1138 points in the MVP voting.

Had he received every first place vote, Nowitzki would have won 1290 points, so his award share is 1138 / 1290 = 0.882. Now that we have a way to quantify a player’s voting support, we’ll need to come up with a way to measure his established value in a given season. I decided to use the following formula:

* 0.4 times his MVP award share in season x, plus
* 0.3 times his MVP award share in season (x - 1), plus
* 0.2 times his MVP award share in season (x - 2), plus
* 0.1 times his MVP award share in season (x - 3)

Here’s another example. As we said above, Dirk Nowitzki’s MVP award share in 2006-07 was 0.882. In 2005-06, 2004-05, and 2003-04 his MVP award shares were 0.435, 0.275, and 0.003, respectively.
Thus his established value in 2007 was 0.4 * 0.882 + 0.3 * 0.435 + 0.2 * 0.275 + 0.1 * 0.003 = 0.539.
