NBA Team Heatmaps

Ben Munson over at has created a set of visualizations for the NBA basketball teams. The charts shows coach, top players and the overall wins and loses over a period of five years. The goal of the charts is to be able to see how time, coaches and players create point spread trends. Win percentage paints a narrow picture of how key personnel react to being put into different game situations. Year-over-year trends may help people see why their team is gaining or losing ground to the competition.

See all the charts at and read Ben’s analysis and conclusion after studying the charts.
