TS% – True Shooting Percentage.  Instead of relying on standard shooting percentage, this stat takes into account free throws as well as the additional point gained from three-point range, weighting each outcome appropriately.  True Shooting Percentage gives a more accurate picture of offensive efficiency.

EFG% – Effective Field Goal Percentage is a field goal percentage that is adjusted for made 3 pointers being 1.5 times more valuable than a 2 point shot.

PER – Player Efficiency Rating.  PER attempts to determine a player’s productivity on a per-minute basis.  The fallback of PER is a lack of reliable defensive statistics to input beyond steals and blocked shots.

Win Shares – Win Shares is a combination of defensive win shares and offensive win shares, which are generated through a formula which tracks marginal points.  The purpose of Win Shares is to estimate how much a player contributed to his team’s win total.
