The latest big number is CPR…
So many things are probably going through your head right now. Like, “where is the number?”, “what does cardiopulmonary resuscitation have to do with the CPL?”, and “what is so big about it?”.
Well, let us confuse you even more.
Here at the CPL we have been looking at ways to give more back to the players – sure; points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks all look good on paper, but, can we do more with them? Can you actually see how affective you really were during the game / month / season?
Drumroll please… we are delighted to announce the latest craze that will surely have players talking – The CPL Proficiency Rating (CPR).
We will not bore you with the calculations, as we fear we may have already lost some readers at this point (we don’t want to lose you all, but the CPR looks at taking each players positive and negative stats and creating an individual number (the CPR) for each individual. Now here at the CPL we are all about the positive side of things, so the CPR does have a certain shine to it that you get from excluding some of the more negative things one could do on the basketball court.
So how does it work? Well, starting shortly you will see the CPR appear in the weekly statistics, along with the historical data. You will also be able to see it in more big numbers, as well as slides at end of season parties.
Is the CPR needed in the CPL? Some people may think it is overkill having this much detail in a social competition. Let’s just ignore those people, and leave this list here…
