Team Site for Basketball: Comparison View

Modified on Sat, 25 May 2024 at 06:39 AM


The Comparison functionality, formerly Digital DNA, allows you to compare any player or team across leagues, seasons, or competition types.  Comparison helps you understand how players or teams compare to each other in a selected situation and statistical category. This feature helps you build game plans around teams or players in certain situations. 


Comparison View

To get started, click on the Analytics Tab at the top of the screen and choose Comparison


Choose your league, season, and competition from the drop-downs, then select a team or player. Once the data from your first choice populates, click Add Teams To Comparison or Add Players To Comparison to add a player or team to compare it to.

Note: if you are comparing players, and not teams, you will also see an "offensive role" drop-down.

Next, set your filter options on the top panel to showcase the data sets you'd like to view.  The comparison charts will automatically generate based on the filters you select. 

The filters below are available to help you drill further into the data you'd like to view.

Further down the screen, you'll see a customizable comparison table. This table showcases the stats for each team or player that you've opted to compare. 


The Settings icon (gear icon) allows you to choose which stats will be displayed on the table. To customize a current table view and save it for future use, click the gear icon and select Customize. 


In the Column Customization pop-up window, you can create a custom table view by selecting the Copy icon next to the Default view. This will create a new view that you can Edit, Copy or Delete. Selecting the Edit option will allow you to rename your table (hit Enter on your keyboard or click the Check symbol to save the new name).


In the middle section, there is an option to Select All or Deselect All column headings in the top right corner of the window, or you can check or uncheck the column headings manually to suit your visibility preferences.


To rearrange the column order, you can click, drag and drop the three stacked lines next to the column name and move them up or down accordingly. Click Ok to save. You can create as many custom table views as needed.
