The start of 2018-2019 NBA Season is approaching! Time to evaluate all the talent that's spread across the league! Give your PLAYER ANALYSIS on well established superstars like Lebron James or Kevin Durant, budding stars like Victor Oladipo or Kristaps Porzingis, under the radar players like Josh Richardson or Boban Marjanovic, rookies like Trae Young or Luka Doncic, even the upcoming prospects for the upcoming draft! Did you ever dream of being a professional scout?! Here’s your opportunity to do it like the pros!

If you think you possess the eyes and knowledge to evaluate the talents and skills of basketball players as good as the professional scouts do, here is your opportunity to prove to everyone how much you really know!!

One of Fanteractive's tools is the PLAYER ANALYSIS module. We provide the tools and forms for you to create your own player scouting reports! This is your opportunity to grade individual players, evaluate their skills, and determine their potentials. Our standard form allows you to evaluate several attributes of players including: Passing, Shooting, Dribbling, Driving, Pick & Rolls, Post Ups, Rebounding, Defense, Versatility, and many more.

Fanteractive's Player Analysis format provides a unique experience for you to numerically grade each individual skill of a player with our rating scale. The rating scale functions on a 0.0 to 10.0 scale and runs on a “continuum.” This means the same rating scale applies whether the player is in the Pros, College, High School, or any other level.  This allows a player to be judged in context regardless of level. It allows you to line players up at different tiers to compare them. Typical rating scale is:

  • 10.0 - 9.5 rating would suggest Hall of Fame to All-Time Great status for a particular attribute.
  • 9.4 - 7.0 rating may suggest the range for the typical professional player.
  • 8.5 - 5.0 rating would represent a typical college player.
  • 7.0 - 2.0 rating would represent a typical high school player.
  • 2.0 - 0.0 rating would be a typical youth or purely recreational talent level.

Along with the numerical grades, you can also write specific comments on any particular attributes as do many scouts do. You can list a players strengths, weaknesses, and an overall analysis. When scouts are describing a player to someone they tend to compare the player with another player's game so we provide a comparison tool as well. Identifying where a player is in his career is another key element of scouting. Whether a player still has untapped potential, is in his prime, or approaching the end tells you a lot about the players' ratings.

So get started on creating your own portfolio of Player Analysis reports! The more you do the better you become! Share your work with others to prove to them how good of a scouting eye you truly have!
