get_bubble_plot {BAwiR}R Documentation

Basketball bubble plot

Description

This plot is a representation of the percentiles of all statistics for a particular player. The figure shows four cells. The first box contains the percentiles between 0 and 24. The second, between 25 and 49. The third, between 50 and 74 and the fourth, between 75 and 100. The percentiles are computed with the function percentilsArchetypoid. Boxes of the same percentile category are in the same color in the interests of easy understanding.

This type of visualization allows the user to analyze each player in a very simple way, since a general idea of those aspects of the game in which the player excels can be obtained.
