NPS – Net Player Score

Net Promoter Score (NPS) is a simple measure of player's over all contribution in the game they had participated in.

It is another way of looking at the player’s stats, collected after the game.

NPS percentage is used in categorizing player’s performance or over all contribution into five categories. 

  • NPS above 90%         - Outstanding
  • NPS above 80%  and below 90% - Excellent
  • NPS above 70%  and below 80% - Very Good
  • NPS above 60%  and below 70% - Good
  • NPS above 50%  and below 60%  - Fair
Grouping player’s into these categories creates a visual representation of player’s performance or participation with any outcome, win/lose. If we see one player in Outstanding/Excellent category and none in any other categories, it indicates that it was not a team effort over all.

  • MIN - Total Minutes on The Floor

  • TOT – Total Offensive and Defensive Rebounds
  • AST – Assists
  • ST – Steals
  • PTS  – Points
  • PF – Personal Fouls
  • BA – Blocked Against
  • TO – Turn Overs

How NPS (Net Player Score) Percentage is calculated? 

  • NPS = (((TOT + PTS + AST + ST + BS) - (PF + BA + TO)) / MIN ) * 100
