What is KnowYourBaller?
KYB is a statistical analysis service exclusively focused on basketball analytics. Our mission is to provide you with analysis which improves your game, team or even your entire basketball program by rapidly increasing your basketball IQ to levels your competitors just can’t duplicate. We supply you with a competitive advantage by giving you incredibly in-depth insight into not just your squad, but that of your opponents as well. We provide you tools others can’t. In order to help you succeed at every level, as young as fourth grade and as old college senior years, we lift you higher.
How does it work?
Intense analysis of every aspect of each game by highly skilled basketball fanatics. With KYB you are getting a comprehensive game review from basketball savants; former players, coaches, analysts that study this subject at a scientific level. Every game is evaluated, every significant event is tracked, and in the end the most comprehensive mosaic you’ll ever see is put in your hands so you can do the things YOU need to do to improve.
Why KYB vs Others?
It doesn’t stop there though, we tell you when shots are forced, when shots are contested and we tell you WHY they were missed. We tell you when a player is out of control, we tell you when a player is aggressive and brings value to the team by racking up fouls that ultimately help lead to points late in the game. We tell you when a player anticipated a pass coming and jumped the pass to get a TO. Again, we focus on overall basketball IQ improvement! This isn’t your daddy’s box score!
In the end, KYB provides granular data that lifts your game, individually, as a team, or as a program- and we provide this intense detail regardless of the age group. The earlier a player’s strengths and weaknesses are identified, the better their game will improve across the years. Our proprietary database is designed to capture player’s stats across years and years of playing, ultimately providing an ever evolving dashboard of player performance. Our goal is to arm you as a player with a recruiting advantage by being able to provide any coach in the world with visibility into the full range of your game. No other service gives you these tools. We are talking about INTERNATIONAL exposure- Basketball is a universal language, we speak it better than anyone!

What stats do you have that others don’t?
GGBU- Great, Good, Bad, Ugly:
GGBU takes into account 60 unique variables, some of which are proprietary to us, and provides the most comprehensive analytical view of players / teams on a game or multi-game basis that has ever been developed. We blow the stat sheet up with variables that other services don’t even consider; quit overdribbling, stop failing to help, keep driving hard, keep throwing outlet passes for 3’s. These are attributes other services don’t even attempt. If a player is hiding bad habits, this measure is going to help you to identify and correct them.

We all know it when we see it, only KYB quantifies it and incorporates it into the analysis of whether you are winning or losing games. Lazy defenders can be the single biggest reason you are losing games. Doesn’t matter if a player scores 23 a game if they are accountable for 27 a game on the other side because they can’t keep the opposition from getting to the rim!
Aggression vs Loafing Ratio:
A player that is going out there and trying to make things happen vs a player that is hiding in the shadows, is ALWAYS going to help your team win; we are the only service that identifies those players.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg, we don’t just provide details on shot %, we tell you what % of jumpers from 4-10 ft come off hard or are airballs vs how many floaters from inside 4 ft were on target. We tell you how many times a player made a pass that should have been an assist but wasn’t converted on. We tell you when a player can’t get to a rebound but smartly attempts to tip it to a teammate.
