During my perusal of NBA history, I carved out lists of the best players from each individual season in NBA history. This way, I could clarify to myself (and hopefully to readers) how basketball has evolved strategically and stylistically. My main goal in publishing this is to demonstrate how I found it best to interpret the inexhaustible heaps of information dumped onto people who go about these kinds of projects, and to explore the different shapes our measuring tools have taken over the years. Below, I’ll link to write-ups organized by season. This project was also inspired by the RealGM Retro Player of the Year.
