So, I like Ken Pomeroy's stats. They are awesome nerdy goodness. However, the site does not in any way dispel the notion that "user friendly"only means that whomever wrote the code understands what he (or she) meant.
I am pretty familiar with Pythagorean wins, so think I understand his measures conceptually. However, I don't have a precise understanding of what he measures in a couple of instances. So here are my questions for anyone who knows answers.
1. AdjO and AdjD -- Adjusted Offense and Defense, respectively, but adjusted for what? My intuition is that Pomerory adjusts solely for tempo (i.e., points per 100 possessions). But then the next column is adjusted tempo. So, is Pomeroy adjusting for quality of opponent?
2. AdjT -- What is tempo adjusted for? I always thought that tempo was just raw possessions per game.
